And has food that would be my top choice in Italy as well. Small, cosy, genuine tastes with only highest quality ingredients. Try the Buffala.

Friendly service, decent food, nice wine selection but not wine "service". Didn't offer to check wine, just poured. Steak a bit tough. Bruschetta excellent. Small place. Ok decor. I give 6-7/10

I had dinner with a friend there and was not happy with the quality and the pricing. Service wise I think it was regular but taking into consideration that my friend's ravioli were completely undercooked and she had to point that out and wait for another dish to be served... My tortellini were okay and the tiramisu was not to... More

What I got in the restaurant didn't meet the minimum of expectations I had for the restaurant after the reviews I read. Pasta was not cooked properly and it was not only my problem, but me and my friends experienced all the same thing. Instead of Wine, nothing else was as expected. I am really sorry to write this review.

Before writing a review, I prefer to visit a place a couple of times. Unfortunately, this restaurant has lost on quality compared to my previous visits. The only thing worth it are the appetizers from Italy. They dont cook them, as they are imported goods from Italy so there is no risk in choosing them :). For sure this is... More

I hardly write reviews but this Restaurant deserved it for the stressful time we had. I am a no smoker (actually I'm allergic to it) and I would normally assume that Basilico, like any other restaurant, would respect the anti-smoking law in Albania. The restaurant's staff allowed a table next to us (in fact the restaurant has 4 tables in... More
