  • Basilicos is my favorite restaurant
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 6/3/2012
    Basilicos is my favorite restaurant in Sea Isle. The food is always great especially their veal dishes and appetizers with a very generous family style salad. Depending on how busy they are, you are usually greeted by one of the owner's, Vince. The wait staff is always friendly and accomodating. The interior was just updated and converted to more of a fine dining atmosphere. I liked the convenience of the new on line reservation system.

    Basilicos is a rare find in south jersey shore dining. The food quality is excellent and the value is tremendous. We eat there every other week and never get bored of the entres. BYOB is very accomodating and allows us to bring our favorite wines. From the hostess to server to chef, the service is phenomenal. They alos did a great job of refreshing the interior which is appropriate for date night, dinner with a group of friends or a family meal.

    outstanding! Still the best restaurant at the jersey shore. the daily chef specials are always excellent. We had a crab and mango in coconut milk appetizer that was too die for! The homemade cavatelli dishes were just like being back in Italy. I highly recommend taking a bottle of the homemade salad dressing home with you, my family could eat it by the spoonful.

    Basilicos has a great menu with a nice variety of foods. They always have a few specials as well which can make it even harder to make a dinner selection. In addition, Basilicos is a BYOB so you can enjoy your favorite drink with your meal. Finally, the food is always delicious and the food is always fantastic consistently. Remember to make reservations and enjoy!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    everything was great the entire evening and the waitress was friendly. Until the end of our dinner, we were not finished with our coffee when the hostess delivered our check and kindly asked us to hurry up because other people were waiting. We agreed and continued to finish our coffee. 5 minutes later the hostess , in a very rude manner, told that we are going to have to leave because she " really needs the table" in an unappologetic manner. I am surprised with her behavior as I always recommend Basilico's to my friends. I felt let down.

    Before you cross the threshold you senses are greeted with vibrant smells inviting you to open the door. Already your mouth is watering and your heart starts to race a little wondering how you are going to make a decision on what to order. You are then greeted with warm smiles and a low buzz of patrons enjoying their evening, and taking advantage of the BYOB.Only a minute after being seated our waitress was at the table to give us the specials and take our drink order. I truly struggled over which entree to order. This not being my first visit, I knew Chef Scot had a no-fail menu. My guest struggled just the same. After placing the orders, we then embarked on an epicurean excursion. The decor is fresh and the service was top shelf.

    Best restaurant in Sea Isle City, our family has been going for years and we took a vote this is the best restaurant even outside of Sea Isle City! It is our favorite and when we vacation for 1 week we go three times. And to top off the great food, it is a BYOB.Go here, you won't regret it. Make reservations well in advance you might have a long wait if you don't or you might not even get in!

    We'd been fans for years but thought that they had fallen a bit lately. Our first visit since the remodel and it was back to the Basilico's we had loved! Food was great, service was great. A lot of old favorites on the menu and the kind of creative specials we'd always enjoyed. The new decor gives a fresh and is more open than the old set-up. We'll see you more this summer!

    The remodeled restaurant is outstanding! Absolutely gorgeous interior and the food was excellent as usual. The signature oil and homemade dressing (which they sell by the bottle thankfully) are incredible. The veal and pasta dishes were refined and delicious. The crab and artichoke dip that is served in a bread bowl is a must have! We also really liked that the specials were updated on facebook. All the servers and hostesses were friendly and outgoing and we were seated promptly. This is true fine dining in a casual atmosphere at the shore.
