A nice, unassuming place with a large menu with fantastic food. The veal escalope was gigantic and pasta was delicious. Staff were good too!

We went to get lunch. I ordered Pizza with tuna and my girlfriend Carpaccio. The Carpaccio was ok but the Pizza was very disapointing. It was flat like a tortilla without much crispness and the tuna had a bit of a bad smell. It was a bit surprising that the food was so mediocre since the restaurant had many customers.

Food was reasonably good but nothing special, service friendly and decent, food was served slowly. Price too high for what we got. Will probably not go back.

I decided to try this restaurant on a whim as it was near a the cinema which I had attended. The restaurant itself is bright and airy with walls painted a simple white but with accent colours which make the place look actually bigger than it is.

We stopped for a quick dinner. Service was quick and efficient. Food quality is good but not enough to survive the night, unless you have a complete dinner. However, this is going to cost few euros.

While it is not easy for a medium-priced restaurant to rise above the rest in the crowded Milanese food scene, "Al Basilico Fresco" has clearly succeeded, if only for the peculiarity of its pizzas made with slow-rising dough. The leavening process can take up to a week, thus making the resulting pizza very easily digestible. Service is attentive, prompt and... More

Let us tell the truth. This restaurant does not excel but provides you with a good number of dishes. The staff is fast. For easy business lunches or after the cinema
