Loved the prawn special, service was great. Kids loved the pizza. We came here at the last minute on our way home from Galway, Fun, festive place. Family friendly, as we had three kids with us.

Real Italian staff serving thus helping to create the appropriate ambiance. Genuine Italian food in the main but also cater for " international" choices. Attracts a good following so there is a need to have a reservation. Certainly not cheap and perhaps this is intended to emphasise the exclusivity. A good meal and a good night out!

We'd been out walking and had already decided to eat at Basilico on the way home rather than cook. It was early Sunday evening and the restaurant was packed.With so many customers, we expected a long delay, but service was very prompt. Our pizzas were hot and as described - really nice - thank you!

We ate in Basicilo for a family event so we had a spectrum of ages from 5 years to 80 years and I have to say, the staff were wonderful with all of us and all the requirements. The food was delicious and arrived in good time and not rushed. The portions are very generous so don't eat anything for... More

I've been here several times and it's always fantastic. The staff will even give some advice if you can't make your mind up on what to eat! I've been here with friends, family and my partner but although they're child friendly I do prefer to just come here for dinner with my partner and make it romantic.

My husband and I visited Basilico for our wedding anniversary. We had prawns/prosciutto salad for starters, and veal for main course and the food was absolutely delicious. The staff were helpful without being intrusive, and there was a lovely atmosphere of everyone enjoying themselves. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
