5-star all the way. My entrée began with bruschetta which was delicious - roasted red bell pepper, mozzarella, balsamic glaze reduction - mmm mmm! Then I had lobster bisque. Very different from bisques I have tried at other places. The bowl was a generous portion. The biscque was very, very good. Then followed by proscuito-wrapped bacon with asparagus and tortellini. I was stuffed and had to get a doggy-bag. The portions were very generous. The wait staff is on top of their game and the restaurant is very nicely styled. Had a relaxing evening and I cannot wait to go back!

Basilico's has just gotten better each year. A couple of years ago, they did a major remodel of the physical facilities. The kitchen has always been good with an amazing salad dressing (salads are included at no extra cost with entrees). The pasta dishes are very, very good and that is we get most of the time (clam with white sauce for my wife and mixed seafood for me) but last time I got the lamp (7 chops) with pesto and mashed. The only problem is that, in the past, we used to be able to walk in without a reservation. Now, it has gotten so popular, that we need to reserve a day or more in advance. I guess the word has gotten out about how good Basilico's is.

Everything worked very well for us. We had grandchildren with us, and was not a problem with them ordering pizza, while we had dinners. Table was ready and our server was great. Plan on going back there to take other family members. Heard they also have full take out menu!

Dinner is always excellent and the service is right on point. They are also very patience with your reservation because parking is always a problem in town. So leave yourself enough time to park and enjoy.

Everyone one is friendly including the owners Scott and Vince. Food is always consistently very good! Great food at a reasonable price.
Everyone was very happy with their meal, the fact that each meal was very hot when it was served to us. Enjoyed the salad and the price was right!

Come here a bunch since I own a house in sea isle and basilicos has always been my go to when looking for a good restaurant experience down the shore. Me and my girlfriend both ordered from their specials menu, I had a crab stuffed flounder which was delicious and my girlfriend got a lobster tail pasta dish. Unfortunately her entree fell flat. She was picking shells out of her mouth on every bite which I could was starting to frustrate her. I understand with lobster and crab you're going to get a piece from time to time but as a $45 entree I would expect them to be a little more careful with the shell pieces. And on top of that there were also clams in the dish and she pulled out a large piece of clamshell that broke off as well. Hate to write something negative about this place as it is one of my favorites but just giving my honest opinion.

Shrimp and Corn Bisque was wonderful. Great flavors Chicken and crab was very creative and a delicious dish! Love the homemade salad dressing and the Cobia fish was the extra special for the evening. It was extra special with steamers. It was fantastic! As always love the lobster mac and cheese (could eat a plate full! As an entree!) and bang bang shrimp! You must make a reservation for this great spot! Beware! Plan ahead! Street Parking is limited especially on holiday weekend! Love this place and Chef Scott is original , creative, food is delicious and unique! Cant wait to see what-he comes up with next!

Food is delicious! Great menu and specials. Highly recommend this restaurant . Our waitress Lucy was very attentive even though they were very busy.
Great Sea Isle Restaurant.
Great selection of Italian specialties and seafood. BYOB makes it easy to enjoy your favorite beverage. Wait staff is friendly and attentive. Presentation of the house salad and dressing is a little odd as some have noted, but is delicious. We visit Sea Isle 2 or 3 times per year. We look forward to a stop at Basilico's
Everything in the restaurant was just fine...from the receptionist to the server and the kitchen. Food was better than expected and in the right portions. Only one bad note...they have a new parking meeting set a block away and not visible if there is even one car parked close to it. A $54.00 fine practically ruined the night. All was well until then...and, we'd even looked for a meter before going into the restaurant. This is not the restaurant's fault...just change in a small town and not well marked.

The food was okay. Overcooked salmon in a bowl of spinach pasta too creamy for its own good was a disappointment. Spaghetti and meatballs were undistinguished.
Fine Food and Noise
We have been going to Basilico's for years and, obviously, love it. But the noise level at the last outing was impossible for anyone with hearing problems. Usually, we get a table at the upper level and that helps considerably. This visit, however, was on the front ground level, and it was impossible to hear anyone talking in a moderate voice.
We really enjoyed our meals of rack of lamb and chicken with artichokes and jumbo lump crabmeat. Our only disappointment was not enough seafood choices. Our waitress Amber was very nice and efficient.

Great crab soup, bang bang shrimp and excellent house salad with homemade dressing! Chef added extra bread to the basket! Nice touch for something different ! Sometimes a pizza type bread & others a thin crispy sesame bread. Dinner was fabulous! As usual: Love the homemade pasta, specials are always delish! Great fish dinners, love the steamers added to many dishes! Great lamb chops, crab lasagna, and chicken parm! Dont forget the pizza! Have to keep Vinson golfing! The tiramisu was delish! Thank you very much!

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!!!!
I absolutely LOVE this place! the people, the service, and above all THE FOOD is excellent!!! If you don't see it on the menu, just ask, they are always trying to accommodate your taste buds.. Best place in Sea Isle to Dine!!!! <3
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!
