“Excellent authentic Italian food in the heart of the city.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

We were staying at the Tryp Sabana a few blocks away and stumbled onto this cute little Italian restaurant. We LOVED everything about it. The decor was warm and inviting and very clean. The food was amazing! The pasta and the risotto and the pizza all were out of this world and the prices were great too. We actually came back and ate here 4 times and recommended it to everyone staying at our hotel. They all came and loved it too! We were sad to leave this place and Carlos our waiter was wonderful. He explained everything on the menu and took great care of us! We definitely missed him and the wonderful food when we left the San Jose! Stop by and you won't be disappointed!!!

“Surprisingly good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Spent a couple of days in San Jose and found this nice Italian restaurant near our hotel. A group of five of us had a couple of salads, a pizza, calzone, and some pasta. The food was great, the service was excellent, and the restaurant seemed exceptionally clean. The guy running the place spoke good English even though the menu was in Spanish which made ordering easier.

This lovely restaurant is a great find. We split a caeser salad and a thin crust pizza. It was perfect! We will be going back again tonight.

“Perfect Pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

We happened upon the Basilico as we were walking to the center of the city. Three couples, three different pizzas, and we all loved each and every one! Pizza could not have been more delicious! If you like thin crust pizza, this is the pizza for you! Service was fantastic. I can't say enough about the pizza and service. I highly recommend the Basilico and when we return to San Jose some day, we will definitely eat there again. Now to find the perfect pizza back home.
