I loved this place! We were traveling about the Naxos countryside with new found friends and ended up wanting some lunch in Halki. Now, I love Greek food, was no where near tired of it, and would never have looked for an Italian place. We just stumbled upon it and it was so inviting that we decided to give it a try. The ambiance is fantastic, with a little garden courtyard where we were seated. The food was delicious, well-prepared, with great attention, and the wines were excellent. The owners, Cristina and Maurizio, were so friendly and attentive. It was a wonderful experience. It is probably a little hard to find: it's on a little pathway not too far off the main square. I understand there's a great Greek restaurant in Halki, I think right on the square, and I would give that a try too. But I can recommend, without reservation, il Basilico, if you're up for trying an Italian option.
