Sweet basillico is one of the best places to eat in Estes Park, Colorado, locally owned by a wonderful Chef. Great menu selection, beer and wine list nice atmosphere without being stuffy. One of the favorites of the locals.

Come as you are for lunch or dinner, my favorite is sausage and peppers.

we were in Estes Park for the weekend, hungry for Italian and we went to Sweet Basilico and was impressed with their food, their friendliness, their service. All very good. I would recommend. They also had a duo that played acoustic and that too was so pleasant!

What a fun place to eat & relax! Had a great dinner, nice glass of wine... & they had a duo singing/playing guitar too! Prices quite reasonable (my Italian Sangiovese red wine was less than $8 per glass!!). The staff was friendly & attentive. The owner, Raul, seated me & then later, came by to say hello - nice touch. Will definitely eat here again!

Estes Park is a wonderful small town and they have a wonderful Italian restaurant that bridges the divide between a small Colorado mountain town and Italian food. My wife and I ate at Sweet Basilico twice in early November and we enjoyed both meals very much. The veal parmesan was absolutely great! Other dishes were very good, but not quite up to the veal dish. Their bread and dinner salads were also very good. The wine selection was modest but perfectly adequate and not overpriced. Actually, the prices were quite good all around.

Why didn't I give it a 5 rating? Both my wife and I thought there was a touch too much salt in their sauce. It wasn't enough to make the sauce unappetizing, but if I could have magically removed some of the salt then I think the meal would have been just a little bit better.

The next time I'm in Estes Park I will most definitely have at least one meal at Sweet Basilico…the salt issue isn't nearly enough to keep me away from their wonderful restaurant.
