Fairly nice place as long as you get a table away from the lobby.In general the good was okay, our starters were pretty good and the bread was good quality . However, my tuna main was very overlooked. It is also very expensive ny HCHC standards.

4 of us went for dinner and it was unexpectedly empty. We decided to share three of our starters: seafood salad, which was nice, risotto buffalo morzarella balls, which where quite dry, calamari, which was nice and one of us had the mushroom soup, which was excellent. For mains we had pasta which was very good, rack of lamb and... More

Fantastic food and service was excellent. Will definitely return. The tenderloin was spectacular and the fettuccini Alfredo to die for. Make sure to order the crepes Suzette for dessert, they present it beautifully.

Good interior but small, tables flowing into lobby of Intercontinental hotel service apartments which is poor. Stood waiting to be seated but was ignored, they were quite full but no excuse as I had to go into the restaurant and ask someone for service For these prices the food is very poor. Yes for HCMC excellent (on the outside), but... More

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

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
