This restaurant is a bit off the tourist-beaten path. The food is Italian, well-prepared and reasonably priced. It's a good idea to make a reservation ahead of time.

My cousin and I loved dining right next to the river. The food was absolutely DELICIOUS! We shared the shrimp dish with olive oil and garlic and vegetables and the spaghetti dish with mushrooms and eggplant. The service was great and it was very reasonable.

First visit to Sweet Basilico was years ago when it was located in a very small building with extremely limited seating. Their current location on the river, below the tramway and near the entertainment park is great. Food is absolutely FANTASTIC.
