Diner Reviews
  • "There are plenty of restaurants in town that tout themselves as "fine dining", but Basilico's actually delivers. Not only can Vinson and Scott cook, but they are incredibly nice people with a truly fresh outlook on creating menu items. The staff is always knowledgeable and the food is always incredible. Normally, I would shy away from "specials" knowing the kitchen is just trying to push some items, but that is not the case here. Scott is in the back creating something original that he simply could not fit on his menu. During this dinner, I actually asked our server to tell the chef to whip up a pasta dish that he would want to eat. We were given homemades with an absolutely delicious homemade sausage. AAAAA+++++, great job guys!"

  • "Basilico's has some interesting sounding things on the menu but every time we've eaten there my criticism of the food is the same--food lacks flavor. The chicken and veal dishes are not over-cooked--just no "star" quality. The Basilico salad was good and everyone liked the bread. Appetizers--ok but not great."

  • "My dinner was a dish with mussels, shrimp, clams, and calamari in a light red sauce over linguine. It was delicious! Everyone in my party of four loved the meals they got. I also like that it is BYOB."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "We always make Basilicos a must go to place when we are in Sea Isle. First and foremost the food is very good. The fact that you can make reservations and it is a BYOB is also so convenient!"

  • "We've been coming here since the first week they opened, food is always excellent. If you want something off menu, they always try to accommodate. One of the most amazing things they do for a shore town is they train there wait staff and it shows by how The customers are treated."

  • "We had dinner on a Friday night. Crowded, which is expected for a jersey shore restaurant. The food is always good here and is authentic Italian fare. The appetizers are especially good"

  • "My experience at Basilicos was great for so many reasons! The young, friendly, and knowledgeable server was well versed in the specials of the day and her suggestions were very delicious. My meal of clams,capers, and broccoli rabe over pasta was excellent, as were the dinners of my friends. My husband thought the salmon over pasta was perfectly cooked. Our water glasses were always filled, the dipping olive oil was smooth, and the aroma was divine! Can't wait to return!"

  • "They handled our group of 12 including 2 infants very well. The tables are tightly packed and it was way too noisy. You could barely hear the people across the table and it was impossible to hear the waiter give the specials."

  • "In one word, Basilicos was incredible! I made a late night reservation (10 p.m.), and the staff was more than accommodating despite the late hour. From the moment we walked in and seated by the gracious hostess to our server who was very patient and attentive, it was a really great experience. And the food is always so wonderful - year after year - so hats off to the chef(s). We had the calamari as an app and entrees: tilapia, ravioli, and scallops (a special), all of which were reported back as superb. Thanks for everything!"

  • "EXCELLENT BREAD AND DIPPING SAUCE AND HOMEMEADE SALAD DRESSING ARE GREAT STARTERS; BASCILICO MARGURITA PIZZA A TREMENDOUS MID-COURSE...WIFE HAD RAVIOLI WITH CRAB MEAT AND I HAD THE ORICCHETTI APP TURNED INTO AN ENTRE' - BOTH WERE REALLY GOOD!"

  • "I have been here numerous times over the years and love it here, but this time after enjoying our meal and finishing our wine, the hostess tapped on our table and said, this table has a ressie, assuming she meant reservation, people are waiting and then walked away! We were there a total of an hour and 10 minutes. I have never been so rudely spoken to! There were also 3 tables empty, it was a Monday evening."

  • "Our dinner was outstanding as it always is. This is our favorite place to eat. The meals are unbelievable and we always enjoy ourselves. This last time, I had the Quail special which was incredible! My husband and I tried the Peach appetizer which we loved. I can't say enough about Basilico's....they are the best!"
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Appys were good except for peach combo. Entrees were good. Cannoli and tira missu were bland tasting. Wait staff didn't clean table completely of all used plates."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Basilico's never ceases to impress. The food and service at this restaurant can compete with any of the top rated philly restaurants. The specials blew us away. We had the grilled peaches app and perfectly seared scallops special app that were outstanding. The highlight of the meal was the stuffed flounder with homemade lobster tortellini and the corn stuffed quail. This was the best preparation of quail I have ever eaten, which is saying a lot since I have tried it just about everywhere. The quail was very moist with a nice crisp skin and the stuffing was delicious. The homemade lobster tortellini in the lobster bisque broth was a perfect compliment to the stuffed flounder. If you are down the shore, you should make the trip."

  • "WE EAT AT BASILICOS EVERY TIME WE ARE IN TOWN. I ALWAYS EAT FROM THE SPECIAL MENU. THE SELECTIONS ARE ALWAYS A CULINARY JOY AND I HAVE NEVER BEEN DISAPPOINTED. THE SERVICE IS ALWAYS EXCELLENT AND FRIENDLY. MY WIFE HAD THE SPINICH, SHRIMP & ASPAGUS SOUP FOR AN APPETIZER AND I HAD THE SCALLOP APPETIZER SPECIAL. BOTH WERE EXCELLENT. WE BOTH HAD THE VEAL & SHRIMP DINNER SPECIAL AND AGAIN BOTH EXCELLENT. WE WILL ALWAYS TAKE FRIENDS WITH US WHEN THEY ARE IN TOWN."

  • "We dined at Basilicos Ristorante for the first time and were very pleased with our experience. The greeting by the hostess was very welcoming, and our server, Sarah, was excellent. The food was well prepared and nicely presented. Great bread and good appetizers and salad. The main courses were outstanding: flounder stuffed with crabmeat in a nice light sauce; and pescatore passomonti, linguini topped with a generous serving of seafood (mussels, shrimp, clams, etc) in a delicious light tomato sauce. We look forward to a return visit!"

  • "We brought our three kids here for dinner. Service was fine, the food was good, but the prices were killer. They charged $7 for a kid's meal (and that did not include any drink, side, or dessert). One of my kids had pizza, and the other two had ravioli. $7 for ONE slice of pizza? The other two kids received THREE ravioli each. Sadly, we cannot justify coming back here."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "The food quality was inconsistent. The polenta antipasti was very good. My Vongole Napoletano was mediocre. Clams too large and sauce was gritty. My wife's chicken was dry. So, for the price, no return."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "Basilicos was recommended by Marie in Salon Shannon Leigh. It was great as she said and the atmosphere and staff were nice. We got there early and being able to make reservations on line saved us from waiting."

  • "There are several good restaurants in Sea Isle City, but Basilicos is by far the best---- lively ambiance, friendly service and excellent food, not to mention it is BYO. The complimentary bread and dipping sauce is delicious and has a uniquely different taste than most dipping sauces. The house made salad dressing is outstanding. I must admit I keep coming back to the same two entrees because they are both so wonderful. They are the Chicken Vincenzo, made with the most decadent gorganzola sauce and the Ravioli AnneMarie, which has a very smooth sauce containing an abundance of crabmeat. My husband is more adventurous and usually orders one of the nightly specials. He has never been disappointed. The best of the Jersey Shore!!"

  • "Much nicer than a pizza joint, but not stuffy. The food and service are top notch. Forty dollar dinner for two at the shore is almost unheard of. The salad was fresh and served with a home made Vidalia dressing. The meatballs are home made as well and worth coming back for alone. Will return. BYOB."
