Pizza here is like an art. Many special flavors in one piece! Service is quick! If you like vegetables, there is many option besides the usual ones.

“Best pizza in Florianopolis!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Granted, I haven't eaten at EVERY pizzaria in Floripa, but we've been to quite a few and most leave much to be desired. Basilico on the other hand makes a good pie across the board. They key for me is the crust, Basilico's is thin and delicate while being crispy and providing good structure. They do not overload their pies and all of the ingredients are well balanced.

On the prices: 50 - 60 reais is pretty steep, but I'm assuming some of that is having to source quality foreign ingredients which definitely carry a premium in Brasil. Will definitely go back even if the price is high since I've yet to find anything better.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

I thought this pizza was decent but no where near the best I'd ever had, especially compared to Braz in Sao Paolo. The ingredients were not overly fresh and the pizza was lacking in flavor. Nice atmosphere and service but a little far outside of town.

“Nice but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

We enjoyed our dinner there, but the prices are rather high. 50 brazilian real for a pizza is too much, in my opinion. Also, if you plan to have a quiet romantic dinner there, you can forget it because the waiters/waitresses will come to serve you more pizza as soon as you had the last piece from your plate, and therefore interrupt you more or less all the time.
On the bright side, the pizzas are really good and the personnel very friendly and english speaking.
There were many families with babies or young children, which was quite noisy. But I can't say if it's normal there or if it was just this evening.
