My pizza was well presented with great toppings but I felt that there was something missing... More

A must visit if you like good Italian food. Very relaxed atmosphere especially for an evening out. Staff friendly and service couldn't be faulted. Lots of choice with plentiful portions. You won't be disappointed and prices very reasonable.This was the onlyrestaurant we visited twice!

If you're in the area the IL Basilico is a good choice if your in the mood for italian quisine. Our choices of pizza and rissoto were equally delicious. The menu offered plenty of options and prices were fairly reasonable.
