This is a small establishment. The food was great. Initial seating issue but the tasty food resolved that! This is located to the right of the hotel in walking distance.

We were staying in the area to get on a cruise the next morning. We googled restaurants near our hotel and were pleasantly surprised. Tastefully decorated modern restaurant, menu with varied choices, and welcoming staff. Food was amazing as well as service. A definite not to be missed place.

You would never believe you could find a gem like this in the area. I looked on Tripadvisor what was in the area and the reviews for this place were great. I looked at the menu and it looked good, man we sure made a great choice. Highly recommended.

Was en route from New Jersey to Key West when during a stopover in Miami my wife and I dined at Basilico at the recommendation of two Florida friends. We are surrounded by excellent Italian restaurants where in live in North Jersey and Basilico rates as good or maybe even somewhat better than the best of our home ground. Great... More

It was really a surprise! On my way to the airport I made a stop in a small Italian restaurant and it was a very good experience. Service was so good and very friendly. They offer a nice table despite we have no reservations. Excellent menu with specials of the day. Highly recommend this restaurant!!!

Hidden away in a little strip shopping center is a magical little restaurant. Hands down the most authentic Italian food I've eaten in a very long time. We had the chicken topped with spinach in a gorgonzola sauce and veal scallopine piccatta and fettucine. A delicious absolutely delectable Creme Brulee for desert! We live 4 hrs away but we'll me...

Our small tour group (6 persons) stayed at the Best Western North nearby and picked this restaurant from a map at the hotel front desk. A short walk and we found this little gem in a strip mall (get your hair cut next door). No reservation, but they accommodated us quickly. Great Italian food, impeccable service, pleasant setting. I ordered... More
