I was invited to this restaurant and had enjoyable time there. Not only Italian food and drinks, but quite Italian atmosphere in general as well, including some native staff with corresponding conduct and gestures. I liked artistically laid on plates food... what was rather good-tasting as well. My fellows had an Italian beer which seemed tolerable, I had Valpolicella Superiore... More

This is one of my local haunts, as we live around the corner. Don't know what the upstairs is like, but the downstairs dining room is quaint with red checkered tablecloths and candles. Although it looks intimate, the tables are close to each other and the waiters are quite ebullient, so it is romantic in a loud Italian kind of... More

I had a cannelloni that was quite tasteless and the amount of food left me hungry. My familymember had a pizza that seemed to be better. I wouldn't recommend this place as a great pasta bar.

Nothing can be finer than to get served by Carolina in the evening! Well, I took liberties with that old song and my apologies to Neil Diamond but in Basilico make sure your server is Carolina and you will “get my drift.” She adds real personality to a terrific restaurant. We were just walking around and entered because the restaurant’s... More

Uppsala (and Sweden generally) is a pretty expensive place to eat out, so it was good to find this restaurant which provided good, hearty Italian food (if not exactly cutting edge) at very reasonable prices by local standards. Portions were very large - I ordered one of the chicken dishes and expected to get one breast, but actually got two,... More

Not awful, but certainly very boring. Had tiramisu, which tasted like it had neither marsala wine nor mascarpone. Not worth the price.

I was invited to this restaurant and really enjoyed it. The sitting area inside is a bit small which makes it look crowded and hard to get up and get back to your seat; but the food was superb. The ice cream desert was also really good. I would recommend that you try it out.

Wanted a quick bite and a cold beer before visiting the Linnaeus Garden. Nothing special about the pasta with mushrooms. Cheap version of the real deal.

It is the 5th time we eat at this restaurang and it has been very good every single time. Not much of a pizza fan and this is why i never ordered it but pasta an meat are great. Fresh and very tasty. Also not too expensive. Great atmosphere and the stuff is chatty and very nice.
