Celebrating an important birthday with friends we chose Basilico and enjoyed a wonderful evening. The food was delicious and the service friendly and helpful. I had the most delicious pudding I’ve ever tasted which was truly unique and memorable.

Absolutely incredible all around! We loved our meals—the seafood diablo pasta was my favorite! The owner and wait staff are lovely. The atmosphere is wonderful in the pavilion overlooking the bay.

This is the best Italian food that you would find in Antigua and believe me is the best Italian food that I tasted in the last few years.

if get the best food is not enough, the view, scenario, ambiance, everything is great and if it was not enough the attention of the owners is exceptional.

Highly recommended.

Had a really great night at Basilico two weeks ago. Staff were extremely welcoming and attentive and atmosphere was friendly and tranquil. A considerable amount of thought and design expertise has gone into the decoration, layout and finishing touches and the result is impressive. Food was also excellent and clearly the owners/staff go to considerable lengths to source only the finest and most authentic produce and ingredients. We skipped a night at our all-inclusive to spend the evening here and had absolutely no regrets.

We had a lovely night when we visited Basilico. The manager remembered that my partner is vegan so she came over and explained exactly what could be ordered and altered to suit his needs. We both ordered the vegetarian pizza with chilli pesto, his without the cheese, and agreed that it was the best pizza we’d had on the island. Drinks were lovely and for dessert I had the cheesecake which was nice but not as exceptional as the pizza. It would be great to see some vegan dessert options on an otherwise great menu. Thank you to the member of staff who tried his best to bring over something for my partner to have for dessert - the drink on the house was a lovely gesture. The service from all of the staff was excellent; lovely and friendly, without being obtrusive. The food, service, and ambience have ensured that we will dine at Basilico again when we next visit Antigua.
