We dined in Il Basilico, Madeira on two occasions recently - July and Augst 2014. Both experiences were wonderful. On arrival (one booked, the other not booked) we were greeted very warmly and efficiently. The service on both occasions continued in a warm and friendly manner. In spite of the restaurant being busy, we were made to feel at ease,... More

We visited here as we'd walked past a few times & thought it looked nice. We arrived at 6:30pm & had a table outside in the shade which was nice. The service was ok. We felt the the children's menu was quite expensive & no choice to have starters and/or dessert included. Having said that the bread basket was nice... More

Delicious food each time we've eaten here. Best to book a table in advance especially if you want to set outdoors.

We live in Funchal, about 4 miles from the restaurant. It can be easily overlooked from the main road as it sits at the bottom of a hill between 2 large Hotels. This is a great location, central to the tourist area and located midway along a pleasant seafront promenade. This is great for an evening walk in the sunset,... More

We loved this restaurant and although we tried others it has to be our favourite. All the food on the menu tastes amazing and is good value considering the quality. The staff are unbelievable, so friendly and their different language knowledge is amazing. I would recommend this restaurant to any one that wants to sit and eat a love meal... More

I´ve visited this place around 4 or 5 times from the time it oppened! Although it has very nice details, like paper and colours for the kids, a very inviting decor, and nice staff, I was dissapointed every time! The waiting is unbearable (I usually visit in large groups, I´ve had up to 2 hours of waiting time), and then... More

A large Italian restaurant, in the lido area of Funchal. The food was of a good standard, large selection of pizza and pasta. Prices whew reasonable but service was slow but as we were on holiday this was not an issue.

We were all very positive to Il Basilico. We visited the restaurant several times during our stay in July. We had different pizzas and pastas, all dishes very good. Highly recommended !
