We are surrounded by excellent Italian restaurants where in live in North Jersey and Basilico rates as good or maybe even somewhat better than the best of our home ground. Great... More

It was really a surprise! On my way to the airport I made a stop in a small Italian restaurant and it was a very good experience. Service was so good and very friendly. They offer a nice table despite we have no reservations. Excellent menu with specials of the day. Highly recommend this restaurant!!!

Our small tour group (6 persons) stayed at the Best Western North nearby and picked this restaurant from a map at the hotel front desk. A short walk and we found this little gem in a strip mall (get your hair cut next door). No reservation, but they accommodated us quickly. Great Italian food, impeccable service, pleasant setting. I ordered... More

We stumbled across this small restaurant quite by accident, but boy am I glad we did. They accommodated us even though we showed up on an busy night with no reservation. The service and food were both very-good to excellent. Next time we are in Miami this is one of our go-to places.

Basilico is a very friendly atmosphere restaurant. It has been in the Miami Springs area for a long time. The food is very good with a lot of varieties for lunch or dinner.
