Straightforward menu, great food, amazing value for money. Pizza and pasta, back to the basics in an industry that sometimes tries too hard.

Basilico is a nice restaurant with very reasonable prices for Luzern city. They serve mostly pizza and Pasta but all well prepared. it is not very big, therefor a reservation could be recommended. the service is also friendly.

We ate here because recommended by a nearby hotel. As it turns out, the hotels are part of the same group. The menu is tiny. Selections are very limited. No substitutions. No gluten free. No vegan. Other restrictions. Very expensive. In a word: don't bother.

Despite being off the beaten path, the restaurant has a great selection of pastas and pizzas, and the staff is very helpful and friendly. I had the "Stockholm" pasta, which was delicious. Definitely worth checking out!
