Basilico is an award-winning restaurant known for its rich, authentic Italian dishes and buffet of antipasti and desserts.
While the weekday lunch array is enough to satisfy, the spread grows over the weekend. The wagyu beef carpaccio is used as a wrap and filled with fresh burrata cheese, and served atop a salad of wild rockets and Sicilian cherry tomatoes. The seafood risotto is bathed in a rich broth; the chewy carnaroli rice comes with lobster, scallops, prawn and crab, as well as asparagus. The strigoli pasta and pork ragout sauce is a richly flavoured tomato-based pasta dish that pairs green strigoli pasta—made fresh daily—with tender slow braised pork cheeks, fennel seed sausage and tomatoes.
