Travelers' Choice
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

Basilico was a very pleasant surprise! After some time spent in Greece, we thought we know how greek food taste like, at Basilico we found out we knew nothing. We've tried the traditional moussaka, the catch of the day and some beef stew. The food...was cooked on the spot, no precooked suff or shortcuts on food. The waiter was very friendly and welcoming offering us the best panacota in the house. We'll recommend this restaurant to everyone we know, even to the world wide web.More

There are a lot of restaurants to choose from on the coast of nidri and we were very happy we chose basilico. Everything from appetizers to main dishes and greek salad was very good. The prices were also very reasonable and they had a lovely...atmosphere.More

I did not enjoy this meal. Very average. The chicken souvlaki was tasteless and the meat seemed processed. I would not return or recommend.

One of our favourite restaurants in Lefkas, great food which is reasonably priced. The Tomahawk pork chop and chips and a few Fix makes a geat meal, they also have traditional Greek dishes, which are all nice. It's a family business and the guys are...well versed in the smooth running of a restaurant. You won't be disappointed.More
