Best Meal in years!

We met the owner and chef the day prior at a New Years Day party, Pietro Persichino. He invited us to his place. It was incredible! the atmosphere, service and the food was a 5 star. Absolutely the finest dining experience we've ever had in SXM during our 7 years vacationing there. If you are in... read more

The sauce was not very good, strange bitter taste. Eggplant as a filler in the sauce, I think was the problem plus the pasta was not prepared to our liking. The Caesar salad was not traditional Caesar dressing, came with bacon. This was not an enjoying meal for us. We were hoping for good quality Italian food!

Basilico is a hidden gem that you can enter from the Atlantis casino. You can't see it from the street. We happened upon when looking for a restaurant that had closed and had a delicious meal at a reasonable price. Try the Veal Milanese which is my favorite. The service is excellent too.

our Plan was to watch the First College Championship Football Game their Sports Bar but changed our mind and ate at the main Restaurant. The food was excellent, three of us had the traditional Pasta and meat sauce and one had Chicken Parmesan and Pasta. A great Resturant.

Went to Basilico based on the glowing trip advisor reviews and we were somewhat disappointed. We're use to excellent Italian food in Toronto so this place just couldn't live up to our expectations. The service however was excellent and the food was good, just not fabulous. I think this place is over rated on trip advisor. Both my husband and... More

We decided to explore different area of the island and so found this restaurant. It is tucked in with a few others on the side of a casino near several lodging areas. It looked nice and so we stopped in. We had several service members tending to us, all very busy. Service was friendly at first but very slow. I... More

This is an interesting restaurant as it has a fine dining section and a pool bar section across the outdoor walkway. The only downside was that the bathrooms are located in the pool bar area, as they don't have on the fine dining side. We had the seared tuna steak which was nice but a little too much seasoning and... More
