We stumbled across this small restaurant quite by accident, but boy am I glad we did. They accommodated us even though we showed up on an busy night with no reservation. The service and food were both very-good to excellent. Next time we are in Miami this is one of our go-to places.

Basilico is a very friendly atmosphere restaurant. It has been in the Miami Springs area for a long time. The food is very good with a lot of varieties for lunch or dinner.

While we were In Miami we ate here based on the reviews. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. The food was delicious. We will definitely eat here again when we return to Miami.

The menu is somewhat limited but I did find something to try. Unfortunately, my husband didn't find anything that he desired, so he just ordered Caesar Salad. He did not like the dressing - it did taste more like mayonaise than anything else. However, my spaghetti with shrimp, asparagus and mushrooms was quite tasty.

We visited Basilico Restaurante on the night before a cruise from Miami. Wonderful small italian restaurant located a bit obscurely by the airport. Very friendly staff who seemed to know everyone who came in the evening we dined there. Though we were the only strangers we were greeted warmly and provided with great service. My companion started with the beef... More

Pulling up you wouldn't think this place would be as great as it is as the plaza isn't so nice. The food is off the charts great - best Italian I've ever had in Florida. Loaded with Italians at lunch - which says a lot. Prices are reasonable - can't go wrong here.
