One of my favourite Italian restaurant in HCMC. Great food and nice service always attract me whenever i go there. Especially Ms Tram Manager - my trusted advisor will never upset you with her perfect recommendation.

My husband is a big fan of Italian food, Basiliso is one of his favorite in Saigon every time we visit Viet Nam. The tiramisu was fabulous. Our waitress, Kieu was knowledgeable about the cuisine and very friendly. We will definitely come back next time we are in Saigon.

Poor service, they mistook in everything : our order and the bill. It is too long and the manager is really disrespectful ! There was a confusion concerning a glass I ordered and instead of finding an arrangement for both parties she said It is my fault I change my mind and she will not change the price, neither find...

When you hear the name InterContinental, you would expect 5 star prices !! Trust me, it's very affordable. Prices are affordable and quality is amazing. The large windows are great to just watch the world go by. Service is top notch. I must say that Tam ( i hope i got the name right ) provided exceptional service. Here's a... More

We went to Basilico with a group of friends. The food was fantastic, the service very good. They have a good wine list. The top item for me was the blue cheese sauce, which for some reasons was brown. My friend had it with his steak but I find it tastes magical just with French fries.

A very authentic Italian restaurant. Great quality, great value and great staff. Must try the homemade pasta and meats. Wines are affordable. If you go now, they're having a great imported meat promotion. Look for the chef if you're in the mood for something different.

Very busy for lunch and dinner. Adequate food if you are in a hurry or staying at the hotel. There are far too many better choices within 4 blocks.

I definitely will comeback here. Special thanks to Ms. Nhi who assisted us during our meal. She was so nice attentive and helpful. Food was amazing, especially the Ceasar salad with chicken and seafood pizza. Everything was perfect.

We took the short walk from our hotel at Saigon Plaza (see separate review) to Basilico which sits within the Intercontinental Hotel. We had starters and mains which were very generous. On reflection it would have been better to share a starter as we could not do the mains full justice. The food was well presented, tasty and served with... More
