The restaurant is located in a city central. They make authentic Italian foods. The foods are delicious and well-presented. Their beef stake is one of the best in town. Meat is juicy in side and crispy outside which enhance all of your sense. The service is quite nice except they are trying so hard to ask you drink more. This... More

Just had a very light lunch in Basilico and enjoyed the food and friendliness of the staff. Great place for a quick bite with large windows and natural light. Quite a vast mdnu selection for both lunch and breakfast. We ordered tonno (seared tuna), ribeye, caesar salad with grilled chicken and seafood risotto. It was nicely cooked and tasted quite...

Mediocre food that should be viewed only as an escape from the local Vietnamese fare. Not a restaurant one should go to if they are seeking real authentic italian food.

Basilico is a very nice place to enjoy a good meal at reasonable prices. The restaurant is located inside the Intercontinental Hotel and is nicely decorated in a modern style. We had the pizza as an appetizer and it was very tasty. Our main courses included the penne pasta with sea bass, linguini with seafood and white wine and garlic... More

Visited for casual meeting with friends several times. Nice food and drinks and friendly staffs. Bit expensive but it's inside Intercontinental Saigon anyway. It's open space restaurant and sometimes it makes some noise especially when lobby is full of people.

My girlfriend and I visited here in hopes of great dining and great food and we were happy to pay whatever. The prices went bad but the food was average in fact maybe below. The beef carpaccio had no flavour whatsoever. The marinated salmon was not marinated and dry. The soft shell crab salad had a very poor dressing and... More
