Got take away pizza and was not disappointed! Good price, great pizza. The pear, Brie and rocket was amazing.

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!

I just recently tried Basilico in Newlands and I had the RUDEST MANAGER I have ever had in my life. Upon arriving we were put at a table tucked away in the corner where you couldn't even fit in the chairs. There was a perfectly...More

Home food, mother’s cooking wholesome food, whenever that craving hits my car heads in the direction of Basilico. It’s a little taste of Italy, my favourite meal is their chicken fillets, with grilled zucchini, pumpkin with cinnamon and a chilled glass of Chardonnay. In the...More
