ate here one evening when we just needed a quick something before going to an event.Very nice service, a bit of a wait for the food but worth it for freshly cooked nice food.

We used this restaurant while staying at the Waterfront Hotel as a change from using the other restaurant which was included in our half board stay. If you use this restaurant whilst a guest on half board you get about a 8 Euro each allowance

Had the best meal in Sliema at this restaurant, beautifully cooked to perfection, I had Breast of chicken wrapped in Parma ham resting on mashed potatoes with asparagus which was delicious. Hubby had fillet of beef cooked to his satisfaction. Lovely waiter who couldn't do enough for us, Enrique was the waiter, lovely person.

Some different twists to the normal pizza and pasta dishes, some of them have strange flavours. Beware the mushroom ravioli as it uses very strong porcini mushrooms. Loved the salmon with curried peas, sounds strange but was delicious. Portions are generous.

My wife and I ate here one night during our holidays, we opted to eat outside on the pavement, The service was very poor as we kept trying to get hold of the waitress a few times.

We've eaten here several times in the past few years and enjoyed it, and I thought I'd reviewed Basilico on here before but I can't find it. If I had reviewed it last year or previously I would have rated it as very good but I'm sad to say that our latest visit might be our last. It's hard to... More

Amazing pasta dishes, potato gnocchi was fabulous. Also had a steak Calzone in which the meat was so tender but the Closed Pizza was big enough to feed the entire room so sadly I left most of it.
