Location and contact

Basil ("Basilico"), through time and in many cultures is considered a symbol of love, wealth and protection. A name that family Petousis chose to call their own restaurant, with care and love to all details from the food to the environment that you are seated. Eleni the chef of the restaurant-but first of all mother- with her experience of 25 years, joined knowledge with her two sons Kostas and Thodoris so that you taste at "Basilico" traditional greek flavours with fresh ingredients of Lefkada and Greece. We hope you enjoy your time at "Basilico" and we are here to give you tastes and many memories of Greece. Sincerely, Petousis family

Had a lovely meal here sitting at the front of the restaurant whilst watching the world go by. The service, food and wine were all very good and would definitely eat here again. Well worth a visit.
