Reviewed November 19, 2013

I brought six of my friends there. We all agreed we would definitly go back there again in the near future. By far the best pizza i have ever tasted. I will definitly order that tiramisu for my dessert again. The staff were friendly and quick serving our food and drinks. Well done guys.....

“Basilico - good Italian food”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

The restaurant is in the main street in Oranmore, a small town outside Galway City.
The restaurant is downstairs, at the back. Don't be put off by the pub in front.
The food is well prepared with a genuine Italian taste.
The decor is also redolent of a genuine Italian ristorante - very modern.
I have enjoyed their seafood pasta twice.
One bad point is that when they brought out my dish they realised they had prepared the wrong dish for my wife. They apologised and she agreed to have it anyway (to save time). Unfortunately she found she did not like it. We have a suspicion it was rejected by another customer.
We have eaten there three times and will go back.
