“Viva Italia in Tulum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

We asked about Italian food in Tulum and were given several names. Decided on Il Basilico because they are famous for their pizza. We were not disappointed!!! Could not believe eating such great pizza in the small town of Tulum out of all places on earth. Freshly made dough to order. Fresh ingredients. Great service by Ana and Fausto, the owners. Amazing stuff!! Have been dreaming of going back to have their margherita pizza, simple and perfectly delicious!

“Tasty pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

Our group had a mixture of pizzas and pasta, and they were all very good. We will definitely return before we leave Tulum. They did forget one of our orders so make sure you double check!

My wife and I came here for a break from Mexican food. The waiter was very friendly and nice. He was helpful in choosing the foods, which all tasted good. We had pizza and a crepe.

“Out "Go-To" in Tulum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

The pizza at this place is GREAT, the best in Tulum and some of the best I've ever had. The one waiter we had during our trips here was from the US so he spoke English. The owner and cook, I didn't get her name, visited our table often during each visit. The fish with tomato and pine nuts is excellent, the sauce is some of the best. The grilled calamari is excellent. The title of the review says it all, when we don't know where to eat in Tulum we go here. There is one table in the corner at the front of the restaurant (NE side) that has a nice view of the street.

“Great Pizza & focaccia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

We stopped by this restaurant after a long day at the beach and the ruins. We had the vegetarian pizza, focaccia and some deserts and thought it was great. The owners were helpful with the menu and made us feel welcome. We have enjoyed the local Mexican cuisine, but this was a nice break from it...my stomach has been a tad queasy and the sparkling limonada really hit the spot!
