The food was tasty but definitely not worth the prices they charged. The salad is fantastic and the bread with their special oil is amazing but the main course scallops $32 for 8 small scallops was definitely not worth the money. Especially as we added the “large” chunks of crab for $8 and i could barely see the minced pieces in the sauce. The quality and quantity missed the mark.

We enjoyed our valentines dinner We shared the bang bang shrimp and it was so good.The house salad was fresh and cold. I had the veal basilicos and it was delish. My dinning partner had stuffed flounder. He said it was good but probably wouldn't order again because it is stuffed with a crab cake verses lump crabmeat. Our server was great. The deserts were good too. Defiantly will be going back soon.

This was our second visit to Basilico's. Compared to our first visit, we felt that the food - this time - had gone down in quality. Our primary disappointment with the meal had to do with the appetizer - calamari fritta bruschetta. Fried calamari should always been crispy and tender: not so with this dish. The calamari was soggy as a result of the bruschetta being mixed together. Better would have been serving the calamari with the melted cheese on top and the bruschetta on the side.
My dish - vitello pizzaiola was very good. On the other hand, my wife's dish - pollo vincenzo was smothered by the gorgonzola cream sauce. In this case less sauce would have been better.
We would come back again for dinner but we we probably would not order that appetizer or the pollo Vincenzo again. Thank You

Basilico’s always has the freshest ingredients for their delicious meals ! The appetizers and bread are to die for and the dinners always taste fabulous. The specials offered are usually our favorites and we highly enjoy the authentic homemade dishes the talented chef comes up with.

We loved the food and the family friendly atmosphere! Everyone from the hostess to the wait staff was attentive and friendly. The dishes were very fresh and delicious. We didn't realize it was BYOB, but they had a list from the local wine shop and within 10 minutes we had a bottle delivered to our table! We would recommend this for anything from special occasions to take-out margherita pizza, which was outstanding. Run by a local family for many years and it shows in the attention to detail and overall upbeat atmosphere. We'll be back!

We had dinner reservations for two for 6:30pm on Saturday 11/11/17. We ordered the fresh mozzarella with roasted peppers as an appetizer. Cheese was fresh and peppers were perfect. Dinner salad has a unique dressing and was large for a dinner salad. We ordered the Shrimp Francaise with the agnolotti and the Lobster Risotto. We shared our entrees. Food quality was very good and I have no complaints on service. Everyone was super friendly even the young lady that called that afternoon to confirm our reservation. I would definitely go here again.

We always enjoy our meal at Basilicos. From the moment we walk in the door and are greeted by the wonderful staff we always feel so welcome. We had chicken parm which was fabulous and a very generous portion. I had the special —chicken saltimbocca over black rice &isotto which was also excellent. We always enjoy the house salad with their special creamy Italian dressing. Our server Annalise was so friendly and always courteous and efficient. We would recommend to everyone who visits Sea Isle to stop at this great restaurant.

The halibut special with coconut black rice was delicious- perfectly cooked, very fresh and flavorful. The pork with figs and apples was very good. Our other friends had veal parmigiana, shrimp with agnolotti, and salmon - everything was so good! We will be back :)

Come on, for these prices we'd like the table to be set up nicely, not have a paper napkin wrapped around the knife and fork. The mussels were inedible and one might have presumed that when all but four mussels are returned there would be a question about why. Weirdest texture ever and foul taste. Some of the food was actually pretty good, but it couldn't make up for the mussels.

We've come here many times over the past few years. The waitresses and other staff are always friendly and accommodating. We have a special diet and our waitress was cooperative and responsive to our needs (no dairy). It's just a great place to eat and we will return many times, even though the menu is a bit limited for us....we just love the ambiance!
