Great Italian food located right inside the hotel intercontinental residence, and 30 feet from main hotel. Great selection of pasta, breads, pizza to name a few. I was not expecting this in a hotel, so if you want Italian, and you are close by, a place worth eating.

I like their breakfast here but I ordered water and looked at my cup before even touching it and there was already lipstick marks on it. For such a nice hotel, they aren't very sanitary... so beware.

We had dinner here one night while staying at the Intercontinental Hotel in Saigon. We were warmly greeted and quickly seated at a table for 2 near the windows. Perfect! Our hostess was attentive and we ordered Fettuccine Alfredo. OMG, it was wonderful and made right at the table by the chef. You are entertained and well fed. I HIGHLY... More

We were seated quickly, and the restaurant is nice and homey as long as you eat inside and not out in the lobby of the hotel. Service was very good. We were given several different types of bread with a good dipping sauce (tomato). They had red snapper on the menu, so we both decided to have that. Well, what... More

Fairly nice place as long as you get a table away from the lobby.In general the good was okay, our starters were pretty good and the bread was good quality . However, my tuna main was very overlooked. It is also very expensive ny HCHC standards.

4 of us went for dinner and it was unexpectedly empty. We decided to share three of our starters: seafood salad, which was nice, risotto buffalo morzarella balls, which where quite dry, calamari, which was nice and one of us had the mushroom soup, which was excellent. For mains we had pasta which was very good, rack of lamb and... More

Fantastic food and service was excellent. Will definitely return. The tenderloin was spectacular and the fettuccini Alfredo to die for. Make sure to order the crepes Suzette for dessert, they present it beautifully.

Good interior but small, tables flowing into lobby of Intercontinental hotel service apartments which is poor. Stood waiting to be seated but was ignored, they were quite full but no excuse as I had to go into the restaurant and ask someone for service For these prices the food is very poor. Yes for HCMC excellent (on the outside), but... More

Was a loyal customer at Basilico before I moved to New Zealand. Came back after two years, expecting to have one of the best Italian dishes in town again but unfortunately, it was disappointing. I ordered 200gr of Sriplion for my steak, then was told by the waitress that the sriplion contains lots of fat and the meat is not... More
