Basilico is a well-loved southern suburbs spot – and for good reason! The modern Italian eatery boasts a fabulous Newlands location and serves up some of the very best gourmet pizzas in town. I recently popped in for a casual Sunday afternoon lunch with family and was wowed, as always.

The weather was sunny although a bit chilly, so we opted to sit on the terrace upstairs. To start off, we ordered up a few bottles of Jordan Sauvignon Blanc, as well as a few portions of half shell mussels done in a cream, garlic and leek sauce to share.

For mains, I ordered my all-time favourite pizza on the menu; the Frutti Di Mare, which boasts prawns, mussels and calamari. I must say, I’m not one for seafood pizzas, but Basilico does ‘em real good! My lunchtime companions all went for pizzas as well. 

Our food arrived promptly and was as delicious as expected. I was lucky enough to grab a slice of what my brother was having and am happy to report that the Torino, which is topped with bacon, blue cheese and pear, is seriously scrumptious! I think it’s time to break away from my much-loved seafood pizza and try some of Basilico’s other tantalising options in future.

All in all, my family and I had a fantastic lunch at Basilico. It’s a great spot for lunch or dinner with your someone special, or a group of family or friends. The food is always fresh and fabulous, the service is on the ball, and the setting is lovely and laidback. The next time you have pizza or pasta cravings to satisfy, you know where to go!
