A terrific menu this year ( we are "frequent flyers " here!). Some great pasta dishes, and you feel that they are authentic Italian recipes, not something tainted by Northerm European tastes like some restaurants. It's not the cheapest place you'll eat on Madeira, but I can guarantee, as with the otherorto Bay restaurants, you will get value for money.... More

A very pleasant meal. The menu is large and has a good choice of dishes. The restaurant is very bright and attractive with plenty of outside dining. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was very good quality but there was nothing to make it outstanding in my humble opinion. There are many very good restaurants in Funchal... More

A really lovely Italian belonging to the Porto Bay group. Cost is very good value. Staff all very pleasant and keen to please. Close to Lido area, so good for a stroll along the promenade afterwards. The house red is excellent! Have bread basket as an apetiser, but share as it is very moorish with the cream cheese it is... More

Very conveniently located just around the corner from the entrance to The Residence, this restaurant offers a good choice of food for the whole family. I would recommend the Sea Bass as an alternative to the pizzas/pastas and would suggest booking a table if you want to sit outside.

Visited 23/08/2015; "Thank God I wasn't hungry"...... Short changed in terms of what we paid for what we got. Bland fare on offer (I selected the veal raviola). €13.75 for 5 solitary pieces of pasta with a sliver of meat in each in an unsatisfying peppery tasting sauce. I chose not to opt for a starter course starting at €4.80... More

Four holidays in Funchal = four visits to Il Basilico. This is a quality Italian experience, full stop. Without a clear view of the sea, this restaurant certainly makes up for it with superb food, served to perfection. We have never been disappointed here and will definitely return on our next visit.

Ok Italian but nothing special. Overpriced compared to other eateries near by. Limited menu with only Italian food. Pizza was nice but way too much pepper on it. Mouth is on fire.
