“Basilico”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2013 via mobile

Friday night I have decided to visit Basilico after more than one year:
4 guests
2 pizza - 3 carbonara - 1 risotto zafferano
2 mineral water ( i brought 2 wine bottles)
3 caffè espresso ToT 3.900 bath

A) pizza was not cooked properly and the pizza pasta was not solty. They add sugar in the tomato sauce and the topping was really stincy ( have to say poor)
B) carbonara pasta was precooked ( pls note that there was few tables in the rest) and not al dente. Over panna no solt
C) the rice was spicy !!! And when they changed the course (after 5 min) the rice was overcooked.
I noticed that there is an Italian Chef there. my suggestion for him is to spend less time to laught with guests friends and concentrate his efforts on the quality of the food. The location is grat, the pizzeria stile is very cool. I will wait another year now before to go back !! Not approoved

“Came out with a mixed feelings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2013

The food was ok, but not great. My girl didn't like her order (grilled Italian sausage), my order was ok (Grille Seabass). The Caesar salad wasn't great either - too much sauce. Spinach soup was fine, nothing special.
The setting is real nice, and the atmosphere is good, the place it was quite full on a Saturday night.
Our waiter didn't really speak English, so wasn't helpful, but the manager there is really nice and speaks good English.
The good side was that the manager noticed my gf didn't eat her food, and offered a desert on the house - a nice gesture which is not common in Thailand.
The desert was great - chocolate souffle with ice cream.

The bill came out 1,765 baht for 2 people, quite expensive for two people.

“We'll never come back”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2013 via mobile

We went for dinner around nine pm. The restaurant looks like an authentic pizzeria place with a big oven. We ordered shrimp salad with avocado (400 baht tax included). When it arrived we were shock as the salad plate was simply half tomato, half avocado, over cooked shrimps with cheap salad dressing on top not to mention the horrible plate decoration. I called the waitor to ask if this was what we have ordered, the waitor was very rude.

“so disapointing”

if you're looking for an expensive place with very average food with a very poor service level, don't look further.

“Never again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2013

I tried to eat Italian food i Basilico, Soi 33. It was my first and my last visit to that restaurant.

As for the pasta - al dente is obviously unknown in this restaurant, and the the carbonara sauce was tasteless. The pizza much to thick, but not much on it.

My complaints were not taken seriously - service level was low. Besides that food and drinks were overpriced.

Never again.
