a nice Italian taste

surprised about the wood-oven for the Pizza. good selection of Italian cousine and wines. Not cheap, but reasonable. fresh, tasty and well presented. The cold cuts of Parma ham are nice. Pizza thin and crispy. Pasta pretty nice. the enviroment is quiet, modern with some nice touch of italian style.

My boyfriend and I came here through suggestion from Expats in HCMC Facebook page. We ordered seafood risotto and linguine, pumpkin soup and the tomato caprese (not sure of the name, generally just tomato and cheese). First, I didn't like my server. She couldn't smile to us even once (Shri is better for this one). I guess because I am... More

I'm not sure how we found this place, I think the hotel recommended it. In any event we were glad to find it. Great food, service and decent prices.

Some of the best pizza we have had outside of New York. It was freshly cooked, and as we couldn't decide on a topping, the waitress suggested we have "half and half". The salad was excellent too.

We stayed at the IC so tried Basilico for lunch as we were short of time. The range of choices was very good. We both choice pastas and they were both quite satisfactory i.e. they were well well executed dishes without being overly exciting. The choices on the wine list were reasonable although 300k++ for a glass of passable Banfi... More

This is a great place for a client meeting meal. I love the place for its convenience, service quality and food. I think it has one of the better Pho but a bit pricey at about VN150k per portion. I also had the sandwich which was not that great. However great ambiance for a client meeting

Was staying in the Intercontinental hotel and it is in the same building. Plush dining experience with good food. Excellent wine choice and service good. Little pricey for HCMC Though good there are at least 4 or 5 better and not as expensive within a 20 minute walk. These are also offer a bit more of a family feel (which... More

I have been here for dinner and morning coffee a couple times. The pasta, lasagna were nice, and the price was average compare to other restaurants. The atmosphere was excellent since it is inside Intercontinental. Their coffee were great as well! The only down side is that you have to park on the other side of hotel and it is... More

We visited here on 21 Dec 15 for dinner. We had the antipasto platter, gnocchi and cannelloni. The meal came with breads, oil, vinegar and chickpea dip. Everything we had was amazing! The gnocchi was fresh, the breads were world class and the cannelloni was simply perfect. With drinks the whole meal came to less than AUD$80.00 which for Italian... More
