I was able to get in on a table for 1 without having booked on a Friday night. However, I recommend booking in advance. I chose the three course menu which consisted of goats cheese soup, rack of lamb and a trio of creme brûlée. To go with this, I selected a glass of white wine (local to Basel), a... More

The food was absolutely delicious! My partner and I had the beef filet: not only was it cooked to perfection, but it also had an unexpectedly scrumptious flavour combination with the calvados and the apples. For dessert, we had the mini crême brûlée trio (of the three, my favourite was the speculos, though the marzipan and port were also tasty),... More

The restaurant has a real good chef who proposes some original excellent courses. We had a menu with raviolis, then a rack of pork and an excellent desert. Everything was perfectly cooked and not ordinary food. The place was fully booked and the dining room is nice but quite noisy.

Had a spontaneous visit on a warm summer evening. While the starter was decent, the main course was fabulous. The service was very good, friendly and always attentive. Guaranteed to return.

Let me start with the service. A very professional and friendly operation. It's not silver service, but you can tell that time effort and training has been spent. We felt relaxed, and were attended to extremely well. The wine was served as well as any top restaurant and made the wine taste even better. The food, exceptional. Staring with a... More

Excellent restaurant. Delicious fine food and fine wines per glass and per bottle. Nice and polite staff. Tables dressed with style. Centrally located in Gundeli near Basel SBB Hauptbahnhof. Definitely recommendable and reasonably priced taken into account premium quality food .

We had a nice evening at 5 Signori. Our food was fantastic and beautifully presented. The wine was great too, and the staff were very attentive. Will definitely go again.

i went there by chance for a lunch with colleagues and i must admit they have a very attractive lunch with a starter which is usually a soup or a salad and then you can choose from a meat, a fish or a veggie main course. Presentation of dishes is neat and well done. I will recommend this place for... More

I would highly recommend this place for any occasion. It is well made, mostly local food with an Italian twist. When we visited we had an excellent Lagrein (wine from SouhTyrol), ravioli with truffles from Baselland (!!), a really amazing starter with pork belly, hummer sauce and shellfish, and the black angus beef with some vegetable pastes and the ossobucco...

Let me start by saying eating in Basel won't be cheap. With that out of the way, this may as well have been the best dining experience I've ever had in the city - and I live here for a few years now! The restaurants looks elegant but also warm and relaxing - and even the restroom decoration is spot... More
