Basilico Cucina Italiana
Classic Italian and wonderful service, always a solid dinner experience.
Our waitress was rude and the service was ridiculously slow. Food was mediocre.
Basilico never disappoints. Always fresh old style Italian. They also have good meat and fish options. They provide fresh bread with a chunky olive spread. They also have a full bar for your enjoyment. We live close by so this is one of our regular hang outs!
On the night we dined for dinner, they were SEVERELY understaffed... and we felt it. We had a party of 11 and a child for a post-wedding dinner (rezo was made 5 days in advance), and our experience took an entire 3 hours start to finish. It took a while for her to take our order, and then they took at least an hour for us to get them. Drink refills were non-existent, until they took care of one round (3 glasses of wine) because our entrees were taking so long. Food was fine, but communication from staff to guest couldn’t have been worse. SO much frustration could’ve been avoided had there been any proactive communication to us from either the server or the manager. We might try it again, but in our experience, it’s realllllly hit or miss depending on the staffing/FOH staff. And if you get the gluten free pasta, make sure they actually cook it through!!
We went here around opening time and sat at the bar. What a lovely experience. Fabulous wine selection (we had the Gary Farrell Pinot Noir) and lovely specials. The burrata was unbelievably fresh. The gnocchi was tender and savory and the pizza was probably one of the best I’ve had with it’s perfectly made crust. Very very nice understated service from the bartender. We will definitely return.
Great food and attentive wait staff.
Great food, service and atmosphere!
Basilico Cucina far exceeded my expectations and hopes.
The food was exceptional. All my guests loved their meals and the Salmon Picatta was one of my all time salmon favorites
Our Server Autum could not have made our evening better
Cannot wait to go back.
All our meals were wonderful...gnocchi....pork chops and pasta....service was wonderful...
It was delicious!! The gorgonzola gnocchi was to die for, I am a little weary of bleu-cheese based dishes because they can be intense but this was just right! And my boyfriend had the pork tenderloin and absolutely loved it.
They were very busy and understaffed. We waited 1 1/2 for our entree. Our waiter was great but very busy.
The service was outstanding , very friendly and great attention to detail.
The food was great especially desert we will be going back again is now our number one Italian restaurant !
We will be back for more of your flavor-filled entrees! Attentive, professional bartender....sweet basket of calamari...Farfalle and small chunks of salmon bathed in a delicious vodka sauce sprinkled w capers...linguine and clams...hospitable server...lovely dinner with friends.
Food was delicious. Our entire experience was wonderful. Can't wait to go there again.
We were celebrating our anniversary, and the staff at Basilico Cucina treated us so nicely. We both had delicious meals and a yummy beet salad. The exterior of the building doesn't reveal the wonderful restaurant inside.
We had the pork loin special. Excellent. We took some home and had another small meal two nights later. Service is always friendly and attentive. Our waitress, Autumn, always does a great job. House salad and polenta appetizer were both excellent.
Service was wonderful, food was excellent
Food was delicious. Quite a few options for vegetarians. Their service was a bit slow. Waitress brought dessert menus then didn’t return to get the order for at least 15 minutes.
This was our first time here. My husband and I both enjoyed our dinners. Definitely would go again.
We were looking for a place that served dinner at 4p. They were very accommodating to our party of 9, not to mention they gladly modified a dietary restriction. The food was tasty and the server was very nice, along with the entire staff
First time patron of the restaurant. Was very pleasantly surprised with all aspects. Bruschetta was particularly good.
Consistently good Italian food.
As always, we received excellent service from being seated in a quiet back table to the quality dishes we were served. Our waiter was polite and attentive to our table requests. Outstanding evening dinner shared with friends.
Attentive service and great food. This will be a repeat place to go.
Feels locally owned and operated with great service and food selection.
Everything was just right about this place. We had the gnocchi, raviolis, and bolognese - everything was delicious, with perfectly-cooked homemade pasta to boot. The service was fantastic. It’s a casual place, but setup with enough care to feel nice and suit the quality of the meal. We will definitely return!
Great food. Great experience. Food was sooo fresh, staff was responsive and friendly. Would go again!
Very good dinner, good choice and good wine list. Service excellant....will return. In general, the place is a little loud.
Food superb, service excellent. The noise level was very loud which made it hard for my hubby and I to have a enjoyable dinner and conversation together
One of our favorite Italian places in Santa Rosa area. Food and service was good
My wife and I ate here for the first time to celebrate our 8 year anniversary. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to someone who can appreciate great food, friendly service and and a cozy atmosphere.
It was great service and the food was awesome :)
We made a reservation for dinner and were seated right away. It was a bit cold outside so we requested a table in the middle of the restaurant away from the door. We were seated next to the window and could feel a bit of cold air coming through. The service was amazing! Our server was very nice and gave some great suggestions. The Brussels sprouts were incredible! Nice wine list!
So this restaurant was not authentic Italian and a bit overpriced for what you get. We were not happy with the ravioli and steak. The service was good, but the wine wasn’t great for being in Calistoga. There were TVs that gave it the appearance of being a sports bar but they were trying to be a nice Italian place so it just threw us off.
Great birthday dinner! Food was excellent, as well as the service.
Excellent authentic Italian. Great food, great wine selection, great service! Its a local favorite!
We continue to return to Basilico Cucina Italiana at least twice a month as one of our favorite local go to places. Their cuisine is superb and the wait staff is extremely attentive to every request. Needless to say, we will continue to return.
This restaurant continues to be one of our favorites in Sonoma County. The food is consistently excellent, with a good combination of ongoing menu favorites combined with specials. A couple of notable dishes from this particular visit included the Brussel Sprouts with gorgonzola cheese and sauce, chicken parmesan, and the rustica pasta. The wine list is very good, with reasonable prices. And the service is very friendly and efficient. My wife and I often go hiking in nearby Annandale Park and then have an early dinner at Basilico. It's a terrific way to end a day of hiking in one of the more beautiful parks in the area.
Pasta with shrimp. Too salty and I love salt.
Pretty much inedible. Staff was good.
The service was outstanding. Anything we requested was promptly executed. The food was beautifully plated and delicious. It is such a pleasure to be treated so nicely when dining out.
