Basilicos Ristorante Ratings and Reviews

Our favorite restaurant in Sea Isle. Great food, great service and a warm welcome from the owners and staff everytime we go there. Basilico's is a family owned business. We happened to go there on the "take your daughter to work" day and the hostess brought her very cute granddaughter to help her. Her granddaughter was all dressed up and very politely and professionally escorted us to our table. A very nice touch on an otherwise dreary (weather wise) Thursday night.
Good food. Bus girl and waitress were very attentive. Food was great with nice proportions We will definitely be back in the coming months
Best in Town
Was having Birthday dinner for both daughters. Great food, great service, they made arrangements for my grand daughter so that she was out of the path of service. Love this place and all that make it what it is. Thanks
Basilico's Sea Isle
The service is friendly and the food is consistently good. Reservations are recommended.
Greta Food after Wine Tasting all day
The food was excellent as usual. The Veal Piccatta and Lasagna Granchio (Crab & spinach in a white sauce) were fabulous, our compliments to the chef
This is my absolute favorite restaurant!!!!

Always a great meal
Always a great meal
Holy Saturday Tradition
Dinner at Basilicos has become our Holy Saturday tradition:Easter Vigil Mass at St Joseph's in Sea Isle City and a "hop" across the street to a delicious BYO dinner. The specials were geared to the holiday and it seems there are some new dessert offerings. Our family has our favorites on the menu and we seem to gravitate to the same entrees, which we enjoy immensely. Our waitress is a long time employee who was very attentive to our needs. Overall,our experience was "eggs-cellent"!
We've eaten here several times. Basicilicos is an excellent restaurant with small shore town ambience. Food is delicious and well prepared. We have a limited diet - vegetarian, and they are always helpful and accommodating. We will go back again and again.
As usual, dinner at Basilico's was fantastic!!! I have been going to Sea Isle City for almost 40 years and always love going back to Basilico's! From the greeting that Vinson gives you on the way in, to the always nice servers, to the EXCELLENT food, this is a great place!!! Thank You for another great night!!! - Joey O.
Four in a row
We have visited Basilicos 4 times in the past few months. The food has been excellent and the service has been outstanding each time so they are doing it right. This time I had Pescatore which was really tasty although it was way too much pasta but that's not a complaint just a comment. We both had the soup special, which was a white bean chicken soup with a tomato base. If they have that when your there give it a try. Lastly, they started us with a salad and their house dressing is so good I thought about buying a bottle (they do sell it). The entrees are sizable so don't fill up on the bread. Enjoy!
Basilicos Ristorante has been a staple for my partner and I since 2013. All the dishes, from the appetizers, salads, pastas, meats and pizza are delicious. Their warm oil/vinegar that is served with bread is awesome. The Sweet Onion salad dressing for their salads is a must have! I highly recommend the Involtini di Melanzane, Fettuccine Alfredo, Gamberi di Parma, Granchio Marinara, Vitello Parmigiana and of course any of their daily specials. (please note, these just happen to be our favorite dishes) The service and waitstaff is great. Love that Basilicos is BYO as well!
Consistently great food
Once again, our experience and meal was outstanding. Service was great and everyone in our party had a wonderful night ....don't forget dessert!
I hate to give this place the good rating...
I really don't want to give this place the great rating that it deserves, because I'd like to keep it for myself! Even though you will read that I give it a great rating, and I'll say they have delicious food, excellent service, etc. don't bother going there - please. ;)
One of the best appetizers I ever had the squid prepared with tomatoes/cheese was FANTASTIC.
Great time Saturday night at Basilicos
The night was cold but we found a warm environment at Basilicos. The seating was prompt and the service was exceptional. We both had veal dishes which were well prepared. The special with the lemon herb sausage was outstanding. The atmosphere was fun and energetic

Wonderful as always. Can never go wrong choosing Basilicos. The regular dinner menu is a gem and the specials are always amazing!
We made reservations at Basilicos Restorante for New Year's Eve. We were aware that there would be a pre fixed menu for the holidays but our previous meals there had been very good so we decided to give it a try. We were both very pleasantly surprised to discover that the food was every bit as good as on previous visits. The menu was varied and it was very easy to select things that each of us truly enjoyed. Our server was knowledgeable and efficient. We would definitely recommend Basilicos to other diners looking for well prepared food at a reasonable price.
Happy New Year!
Yet another fantastic New Year's Eve dinner at Basilicos! Excellent food and service, as always!

She is The Best!
Warm experience on a cold November night
We had an opportunity to celebrate a birthday on Saturday. The staff and owners were friendly and welcoming. The pace was perfect starting with an early opening of a special wine to a tremendous jumbo crab cake to our entre's which were a perfectly done veal dish + an over the top scallops special accompanied by a fresh salad with Basilicos signature dressing.

as a new resident of Sea Isle City we are excited to find such a great place to sit and enjoy such good food with new friends.
We are regulars to Basilicos in Sea Isle city.
Excellent sea isle city restaurant and have recommended to many people.
Not as good as Expected
Was really looking forward to a Saturday night out for dinner. Could only get as late as a 5:15 PM reservation on Halloween night, even though the restaurant was more than half empty the entire time we were there. Tables awfully close together and my wife could hear the couple across the way arguing. Lobster / crab bisque we both agreed was EXCEPTIONAL !!! Ordered the Big Bang shrimp, and while I could taste that the shrimp was cooked wonderfully, it was OVERKILLED in the sauce. Same for my Caesar salad with the dressing. Would have been great with HALF that quantity. My main course (lasagna) was (temperature) hot through the last bite.

Excellent bang bang shrimp Delicious creamy Italian wedding soup with huge-chunks of chicken' Excellent & lovely lobster mac and cheese Delish Pollo Cavatelli with homemade ricotta Cavatelli! Excellent veal pizzolla with 4 veal cutlets, sausage and homemade spinach garganetti pasta. Topped off with Coffee and Italian ricotta cheesecake! Its byob and cant be beat in all of Cape May County!
Best in SIC
Always have a consistently good meal no matter what menu choice. Specials are always so delicious! All of the staff are friendly and welcoming. Always a great experience!

Our favorite restaurant at the beach. Great Italian food, but a little different.
Fabulous meal with friends!
Dinner was outstanding. A BYOB gem with an excellent menu and fabulous service. Seafood risotto was top notch. Great ambiance... Great with a group or for date night. We wanted a different bottle of wine, so our waitress gave us the number of the local liquor store and they delivered a bottle at no charge in 5 minutes. Will definitely return!
Four of us had dinner on Saturday night. Each of us chose a different entree and all of them were absolutely delicious.....as usual. Lucy, our waitress, is a gem.
Italian gem in Sea Isle City, NJ
Basilico's has rapidly become one of our favorite restaurants at the South Jersey shore. Quality ingredients and attention to diners' individual requests provide good reason to keep coming back for more. Friendly and courteous staff. BYOB. The delicious Shrimp Francaise appetizer sufficed for my main entree. Always a good idea to make a reservation; otherwise a long wait or no availability especially during summer. Well worth the trip from other shore points. And if you'd like to share with family and friends at your own event, they offer a really good catering menu.
The food was delicious, it was served very nicely with enough time in between courses. The soups were delicious, the salad was great very fresh and the entrée was outstanding. It is a very nice restaurant with great wait staff
Sea Isle's Finest
You can always expect a friendly welcome from the owners (Vince, Scott, Lauren, and Megan) and the wait staff and enjoy consistently great food. The chef, Scott, who is also one of the owners is very accommodating in meeting special requests unlike many other restaurants in Sea Isle that will not allow any substitutions from the menu.
chicken, Escarole and meatball soup! Bang bang shrimp! And best Lasagna i've had all year! Not my Mother in laws Lasagna but it is darn good!
Great book club group dinner!!
We come here every year, the first night of our long circle book club retreat weekend in ocean city. We love the food...and love BYOB!! Service is excellent. Family style salad is super. Nothing bad to say about it. I suggest getting reservations!!
