We have been frequenting Il Basilico for eight years now on an annual basis as we have a time share here. The quality and menu choices have been consistently wonderful. The staff are lovely. The value for money is very good. Highly recommend this venue.

We visited here while on holiday after reading the good reviews. We were not disappointed. good service and nice sized portions. This is an Italian restaurant but we opted for the shin beef in red wine sauce and beef medallions.Bothe cooked perfectly.Shin beef melted in my mouth.Reasonably priced for the good quality food.Will certainly visit again.

Located very near the sea, this restaurant had a stunning decor and includes an outdoor seating area. Food is delicious and very good value. We sat outside in the sun and have a lovely lunch of fantastic pizzas, spaghetti and lasagna. Would definitely go again!

This restaurant is attached to one of the large, new hotels out on the Monumental Road. It is invariably busy which is testament to the quality of the experience. Food is good and the restaurant is well-designed with a comfortable ambiance. Recommended.

Ideal situation to just sit outside and chill while watching the sun go down with a few drinks by your side,found this gem a bit to late during our holiday We found the staff very polite helpful and friendly, Drinks are reasonably priced except for soda water and lime that costs the same as a large beer for some reason...
