We ordered from the express for the kids while adults went out. Food was delivered in under 30 minutes. They were raving about the pizza and pasta's. Regret not either going there or ordering take out on another night. We will definetly hit this spot when we go back.

The staff is wonderful. I forgot my 2 phones on the table and they contacted a friend of mine that they had them and also... More

If you are visiting the Nosara area, specifically, Playa Guiones, you MUST eat at Il Basillco! You will not want to miss the fresh salads. The dressing is to die for! All the ingredients is fresh and the casual atmosphere is beyond charming! You will not regret anything about this place!

This was my second trip to nosara, and I had a good experience at il basilico the first time, however, this time not so good. We arrived (party of two) well ahead of a large table of ten, and two other tables of 3 and 2, yet received our food well after the aforementioned tables. The server explained that one... More

We all had a pasta course and split a pizza. Pizza was okay but a bit watery. The spaghetti with meat sauce was above average. Just not a refined place which would explain why we were the only table that didn't have any young children with us.There are 2 or 3 other italian restaurants in the area that are phenomenal...
