I came here for lunch with some work colleagues who were staying at the Intercon. They'd been here before and couldn't recommend it enough. The staff were really good and their English was easily understandable. The food itself was beautiful, we shared an antipasti plate and I had the calzone pizza. Both were beautifully served and the food was of... More

Stayed a weekend in the nearby Intercontinental Hotel so I went to this place 3 times. Very good atmosphere, good bang for the buck. The quality of food is very high. Service can not catch up entirely to the top standards. I opted 3 times for a pasta dish and was never disappointed.

I have frequented this restaurant since its opening and only thought of doing a review just now. Looking to entertain my itch for pasta we came to Basilico for a late lunch. Upon passing through the entrance we were greeted by a smiling staff and given a choice of tables. We opted for one away from the back doors to... More

Nothing too offensive here, but I was expecting more based on the reviews and the association with the simply brilliant Intercontinental Hotel. This restaurant is kind-of attached to the Intercontinental Hotel (it's part of the shopping centre at the base of this hotel) and is in keeping with the hotel in terms of high class furnishings. Thoughts here: Service: Attentive... More

Good services and food. Located in the center of the city and have a full menu of Italian food. Sometime I went there for breakfast too. The restaurant has a nice design and quiet to compare other places in the center.

Was pleasantly surprised to discover this Italian Restaurant while staying at the Intercontinental in Ho Chi Minh City. As is the custom in Italian restaurants, some bread and prosciutto was placed in front of us as soon as we were seated. The restaurant has a nice ambience with a fairly comprehensive menu. Had the grilled sea bass in white wine... More

The atomosphere is nicr but the service is certainly not 5 star and more like 3 star. The food is good but not great. I personally think Ciao Bella and Pomodoro have better food. What really irked me was charging me 30,000 dong for honey with my after dinner tea after paying close to western prices. Insulting and tacky to... More
