Was a loyal customer at Basilico before I moved to New Zealand. Came back after two years, expecting to have one of the best Italian dishes in town again but unfortunately, it was disappointing. I ordered 200gr of Sriplion for my steak, then was told by the waitress that the sriplion contains lots of fat and the meat is not... More

I would say that the restaurant is more really good Italian-American type of cooking. Their pizza is excellent. I had a thin-crusted pizza with mozzarella and a spicy salami on the top and it was cooked perfectly and served red-hot from the oven. It was a nice change from eating Vietnamese every night. The service was wonderful. They were friendly... More

The food at Basilico was very well made and tasted great, especially the salad and pizza. The staff were very friendly and gave good suggestions on what to order. I would defiantly recommend the restaurant especially for a business meeting considering the service and food quality and additionally the ambiance is clean, inviting and well organized. The Italian food is... More

We have visited this restaurant many times and tried a variety of dishes. The winner by far is the Ravioli which are exquisite both in flavor and portion size. The pizzas can be improved as they are quite bland with no rich flavor. Other notable dishes are the pistachio crusted lamb and the grilled salmon. The restaurant is located within... More

The restaurant is associated with the Intercontinental Asiana hotel, but separated physically. It occupies a bright, clean space, with both indoor and outdoor settings. Menu is classic Italian. Staff are well-trained and fluent in English. Prices are very reasonable given the quality of the food.

After long vacation, our family returned to Basilico and surprising that they had a lot of changes within few months . Firstly, we impressed with their new menu, it looks simple but elegant, not a mountain of words like before. They are doing a good job when focus on offering what an Italian food lovers needed, Caprese, Ravioli , 4... More

Amazing! I was very surprised by your food. Yesterday I came here, ordered Margherita pizza and spaghetti Vongole. I enjoyed with my all interested. The food with pizza and pasta has exact Italian taste. As you know, it's very hard to keep the traditional aromatic flavor, but you can. I definitely come back here someday as soon as possible.

I had been there for a quick brunch and that was a really satisfied experience. Delicious food (really Italian), warm atmosphere and very professional service. The waitress was very caring and smart I like her, she explain more than everything I ask. Will definitely come back with family for the next time.

The Basilico restaurant offers a wide range of original great Italian food and professional service with friendly staff. I'm used to eat in Italy so I know what is good Italian quality. For example they offer original Parma ham, its taste can't be better. Basilico is probably the best Italian restaurant in Saigon. That's reason why I'm a regular guest... More

We came here with a buddies group. We shared a Antipasti selection, Calamari then Steak for main course. Must say this is an amazing lunch, food was delicious with reasonable price (especially choice of steak sauce, I strongly recommend Bernaise & cheese sauce), service is outstanding. We will come back.
