The restaurant was smallish yet the decor and atmosphere was ever so lovely. We ordered wild mushroom stuffed pasta with a delicious cream sauce topped with roasted squash, a house salad of arugula and tomatoes with balsamic, and added bruschetta that was delightful. We followed with orange cheesecake and ice cream with hazelnuts and chocolate sauce with espresso served in... More

We live in Galway. We love it. The choice of restaurants in the city is wide and varied. But today I almost wished I lived in Oranmore. Basilico is the reason. What a fabulous local place to have on your doorstep. My mum was over. She's 86 and we chose a place outside of the city that suited her in... More

Visited the restaurant on Saturday and the three stars I have given are only for one girl. Caught her name and Emer made the average visit enjoyable. Restaurant was very busy and she was still very pleasant despite having to attend to what seemed like every table in the restaurant. Food was nice but Emer is a credit to her... More

During our recent stay in Oranmore, the owners of the B&B we were staying at recommended this restaurant. It was our first night in Ireland and we were looking for something special. We were not disappointed. The food is authentic Italian and everything we ordered was awesome. The beef lasagna was freshly made and perfectly seasoned. My wife's tortelli zucca... More

Attended this place several times and must say that the food is amazing. Also the staff is very friendly and are more willing to help you to choose with wine and food choice. Absolutely recommend anybody who is in the area to have something to eat here. Great place and great atmosphere.

The great thing about Basilica is that you step in to Italy because the waiters aer either French or Italian and the food is the real thing! You get great service, amazing food and a lovely atmosphere. It is by far my favour restaurant at the moment and I go as often as I can. Is highly recommend.
