Let me start with the service. A very professional and friendly operation. It's not silver service, but you can tell that time effort and training has been spent. We felt relaxed, and were attended to extremely well. The wine was served as well as any top restaurant and made the wine taste even better. The food, exceptional. Staring with a... More

Excellent restaurant. Delicious fine food and fine wines per glass and per bottle. Nice and polite staff. Tables dressed with style. Centrally located in Gundeli near Basel SBB Hauptbahnhof. Definitely recommendable and reasonably priced taken into account premium quality food .

We had a nice evening at 5 Signori. Our food was fantastic and beautifully presented. The wine was great too, and the staff were very attentive. Will definitely go again.

i went there by chance for a lunch with colleagues and i must admit they have a very attractive lunch with a starter which is usually a soup or a salad and then you can choose from a meat, a fish or a veggie main course. Presentation of dishes is neat and well done. I will recommend this place for... More

I would highly recommend this place for any occasion. It is well made, mostly local food with an Italian twist. When we visited we had an excellent Lagrein (wine from SouhTyrol), ravioli with truffles from Baselland (!!), a really amazing starter with pork belly, hummer sauce and shellfish, and the black angus beef with some vegetable pastes and the ossobucco...

Let me start by saying eating in Basel won't be cheap. With that out of the way, this may as well have been the best dining experience I've ever had in the city - and I live here for a few years now! The restaurants looks elegant but also warm and relaxing - and even the restroom decoration is spot... More

This is the restaurant that first comes to my mind when people ask me to recommend a restaurant in Basel. I come here often for family events, and once for a business-related celebration. The food is consistently very good, and the service is fine. It is usually very busy, so we always book ahead. But please check your bill at... More

We ordered 2 small glasses of red wine - Esporao (Portugal,Alentejo) 1 dl. Total price 15,20 Sfr., wow. Neither we saw the bottle nor we got any bread or something else. We asked for this - impossible - at 9 pm.

Best dinner I had during BaselWorld 15! I loved the shared ravioli, asparagus risotto with sea bass, & creme brule on fire! Wine was delicious. This is a great place for a group of 8 or 2. I'll go back again!

Last night, my wife and I went out for dinner with 2 friends from China. We booked a table for 4 people at 5 Signori based on good ratings here on Tripadvisor. It turned out to be an excellent choice:I ordered the duck and I have never had a duck that was prepared so tender before in Switzerland. My wife... More
