It soon became our favorite place by far. Conveniently located (easy to park), Basilio is a classical at best. Quality is excellent, dishes are very well prepared, prices are low for our usual standards. A major plus is the kindness and friendliness of the owner, mr Franco, supported by qualified and professional staff. Highly recommended.

Visited this restaurant on a Thursday evening during a short break on the recommendation of our hotel. In terms of decoration it's pretty old fashioned but I was hopeful the food would be good. When we arrived (~20:30) there was only one other diner in there which was a bit concerning but after half an hour the place was almost... More

I like the familiar environment of this place. The food is ok, I would say on average in comparison to other restaurants. Staff is kind and helpful. We had fish but it was not fresh and nothing special. Desserts are ok.

This is my first review but the bad experiance we had at the testaurant motivated me to write to you regarding this matter... We did go to the restaurant because of the fairly good reviews provided in tripadvisor that are not resonable to me now after the visit... So some impressions 1) the waiter had such a pungent and unpleasant... More

Great restaurant in Cagliari, with prices lower and middle given the special quality offered in eating. Excellent fish and desserts. Caught a fish with artichokes excellent. The various professional waiters and chefs. Try it for yourself.

Despite position out of downtown the restaurant offers good examples of sardianian foods. Servìce is SOMETIMES slow for dinner. Bottled wines too expensive, better have a glass of local grape juice. Desserts are few and ' very common'. You just reserve for dinner or for sunday lunch.

The restaurant was founded as Basilio restaurant in 1950 after a bet made by Basilio Deidda. The restaurant opened its doors in today via Satta, then regarded as extreme outskirts of the city, from which you could see Mount Urpinu. In 1980 he succeeded his father in the activity's son Basilio Gianfranco Deidda. The great success of the restaurant leads to renewal of the premises in 1991, decorated in rustic-modern and at the same time elegant and refined, the space is divided into two large rooms that are about 100 seats, plus a terrace to enjoy in the summer . Gianfranco Deidda, the experience of his father, managed to create a pleasant environment for customers who decide to spend a few hours in good company enjoying the delicious dishes cooked by experienced chefs in the kitchen both local and national. The highly qualified staff is always available to each customer's needs. The former restaurant trattoria "Basilio" while renewing, has preserved the old traditions, reaching the third generation ...
