Met a few friends here for dinner. The staff were friendly enough and the place has decent decor. The real letdown was the food - overpriced and oh so plain. My husband had the burger, which was nothing special but good, but way too small - almost a joke. For chf 32 you could order 2 at some burger joints.... More

Excellent! Food is delicious. I highly recommend this place. Be careful the restaurant is located at the 2nd floor of the building.

Having been here multiple times, I enjoy the very special location of Don Camillo. Besides, they offer vegan food going beyond a standard dish.

I enjoyed an average light mid-day meal with a business colleague prior to returning to the USA (via Zurich). The wines were okay. And the price was definitely Swiss! Would I return .............. not really. But since a work colleague was picking up the check, it was worth the price. I've eaten at Cantina Don Camilio on 2 occasions. Other... More

We visited the place a few times in the past as it was close to work. We had good experiences and sometimes not so good. It's friendly service. We like a lot the bread and its dip before the starter. however the food menu has always been similar and we ran out of options after a few visit. Would recommend... More

My wife booked Don Camilla for it anniversary and we were not disappointed. Great staff, lovely terrace, albeit wonky. Reasonable by Basel standards and the food is very nice, mostly gluten free and mostly organic.

Don Camillo's terrace has a great atmosphere. We held our organization's pre-event dinner there, and the ambiance, service and food were all excellent! Didn't feel like we could have had a better experience anywhere else! Thanks Bruno for a great meal!

Great tasting food that is fresh and served beautifully. Nice combinations which are beyond everyday dishes. Nicely located in an old building and in summer has apparently a nice terrace. Will go back to check!

Booked a large table for a crowd that got larger during the night - not a problem, the staff just found some extra chairs for us. Loved the veggie courses, and (this is a big bonus) got a chance to taste some excellent wine AND alcohol free beer.
