It is rare that you’re able to eat authentic and delicious Italian food outside of Italy, but when Italian chef Roberto Bulian opened up Basilio in Gemmayzeh, he made sure to put all his passion into creating the tastiest homemade Italian dishes.
The venue is inspired by chef Basilio, who taught Bulian everything he knows about fresh pasta – customers can almost always find Bulian hidden in his private booth, preparing the pasta or decorating a plate with one of his heartwarming flower paint sketches as he listen to opera. Always with his glass of wine and paintbrush, Bulian feels right at home and expects for each customer to feel as though they’re sitting in their very own kitchen. If you’re a first time customer, Bulian will take the liberty in ordering for you and making sure you enjoy the very best of his delightful kitchen. The atmosphere is relaxed and laidback in a setting reminiscent of piazzas in Italian towns and cities. It’s a very endearing feeling altogether; and for those who’ve been to Italy before, it’s certainly a trip down memory lane and a nostalgic treat.
The food is packed with flavor and freshness, oozing with richness! Whether it’s the Octopus Carpaccio salad or the porcini ravioli, the delicious thin-crusted pizza with melting cheese and Parma ham or the surprise dessert that leaves you guessing its ingredients for days; pair your meal with a delicious bottle of Nero d’Avola and the dining experience at Basilio will be an unforgettable night of fun, laughter and tantalizing gastronomy in its simplest form.
This venue is a great choice for a night out with close friends who are looking for an interesting experience. Be sure to strike up a conversation with the multi-lingual, multi-talented chef, and hours later, you’ll certainly congratulate yourself on such an unforgettable evening out.
Price per person is approximately 50 USD.
