Stopover in Rennes (Novotel across the road) on a cold December night, after a walk around the funfair we stopped at Basilico, enjoyed lovely Italian food and excellent service. Don't overlook this place!

Service was excellent and when the learnt that one of our group was allergic to gluten they went out of their way to help. The food is excellent though we found... More

The best lasagne I've tasted and the chef's lemon tart deserves a Noble Prize for culinary endeavours.

Dined here in a group of ten. given only oner of our party spoke more than a few words of French they were very helpful in explaining the menu and responding to requests. The food was fresh, well presented and flavoursome with some interesting "specials".

Well located restaurant. Near the train station, yet just far enough to avoid the chaos of the tourists around the station. We were welcomed by a really nice waiter who was delighted to make suggestions on the menu. We opted for pizza. The crusts of both pizzas was made close to perfection. A great delicious choice. Portions are generous. One... More

Nice atmosphere, very good food. The pizzas were great, tasty and light, it felt like you could never stop eating! The carbonara was also very good.

We liked the look of the menu advertised outside the restaurant so we decided to pop in, the staff were very welcoming and friendly. The meal we had was beautifully presented and tasted fantastic with the desert being a particular highlight of our evening. I look forward to returning here again.

My two teenage sons and I walked in here early evening and was shown a table - within 20 mins the place was full. It is difficult to do "great pizza" but this was great - lovely fresh ingredients - great value and nice staff. Pretty much a safe bet if you are a stranger in this town
