With Colcaccio Cavendish's pizza oven on the blink, I visited Basilico twice in the last 2 weeks, for my pizza fix. Pizza is awesome!! But it does cool down quickly once plated. Just wish, Basilico would stop serving regular espresso as decaf, it's not funny.

Basilico’s never disappoints. Chicken schnitzel sooo tasty and huge! Pizzas all delicious although highly recommend the avo and bacon one. Chocolate brownie dessert enough for two and very rich. Attentive staff and always accommodating- love this place!
