My wife and I had an amazing 3 course dinner at the evolution deck. Our waitress was Sala and she was so attentive, friendly and couldn't have done anything more to make the night better. Do yourself a favour and take your significant other for a truly amazing night.

Amazing dinner with my fiancé tonight at Basilica. Delicious meals, Catherine (our waitress) was very polite and helpful, and we left filling very satisfied. I had the lasagne and my fiancé had the meatballs. Both very simply divine!
Thank you Basilica and Catherine for your hospitality.

We can’t wait to come back again in October!

Enjoyed our first visit to Basilico so much we came back for our last night too! We didn’t have a booking for either night but it was no problem.
View from the outdoor dining area is absolutely gorgeous as the sun is setting. Staff here are exceptional particularly Willy, who was outstanding and was very helpful and understanding about my allergies. Sala was also fantastic.
The complimentary fresh focaccia was a highlight and the meals were really tasty both nights we went. Lovely, relaxing atmosphere.

Average Italian food in a bland and tired setting. If you are looking for Italian in Denarau, the restaurant works (just), however you will not leave thinking, "I really enjoyed the food/atmosphere". Another negative is that the drinks menu is limited which is strange because the bar near the restaurant, only a few yards away, is well stocked. The staff were lovely, although service of the food was slow and labouring.
