Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I ordered a carbonara. The menu stipulated; guanciale, egg, pepper and parmigiano. I thought great a traditional carbonara. The dish came out with lots of cream and I couldn’t eat it. I would have ordered the dish if the menu said cream in the carbonara....Very disappointed. I didn’t send it back because I was with a large group and didn’t want to embarrass the host of the party so my husband begrudgingly ate it.More

Disappointed with the quality. The pizza base was okay but let down by toppings. They were very scarce not the high quality food they were. Something has changed with the cafe. This used to be the premier Italian cafe/restaurant in Prospect. I suspect that they...have changed ownership as the staff appear to be Indian, not that this should make a difference but the quality is definitely down. Normally this restaurant is very busy and tonight it was empty and my phone order was ready ahead of time. I will have to find a new place to eatMore

Two weeks ago my wife and I went to Basilico Cafe, Prospect for an early dinner. We love the ambience of the cafe and the beautiful blue pizza oven. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted and given a table by the window. We looked at...the extensive menu. The range of pizzas (as well as other dishes and specials) is quite extensive and it took a little while for my wife and I to agree as to what we were going to have. We decided on the Supreme pizza with anchovies and the roast lamb pizza. The presentation of the pizzas was fabulous and they tasted delicious. We enjoyed a drink with our meal and my wife was happy that she could have a glass (or two) of prosecco. We took our uneaten pizza home and enjoyed them the next day for lunch. Basilico is a friendly place to eat with great pizzas.More

An impromptu lunch invite with Son, his wife and two granddaughters was a warm interlude on a wet and cold Saturday. Shared pizza was for most but the homemade burger was a delight. Service was friendly and warm, efficient and the food well priced.

My son and I had dinner there this evening. We had the scaloppine alla romana and the lasagna and both were delicious. Serves were generous and the prices very reasonable. Service was friendly and quite quick, especially as they were very busy. My only gripe...is that it was very noisy, making conversation difficult.More

We went without a reservation, and the first impression was of a bustling restaurant full of multigenerational families and couples having a wonderful time - a reminder of great small restaurants in Italy. The friendly staff set up a special table for us and we...immediately felt welcomed and part of a community group. The menu has a great range of choices with Italian dishes that are authentically traditional rather than experimental. Daily specials were noticing. Food was delicious and even though the restaurant was full, staff were attentive, good-humoured and warm. Judging by the large volumes of food being picked up for takeaway, it seems that the food was also being enjoyed by many other families in the area. We’ll definitely return.More

Love the meal choices other than pizza. Always leave contented. Home cooking accompanied with a glass of wine, what more does one want on a Friday night. Must try.

We had a family dinner here, which included a pizza, a chicken dish, the scallopini and lamb shanks. All prepared to perfection. Can't fault any if them. And the garlic pizza as a starter - perfecto!

After a week in my own kitchen making my healthy chcolates for Valentine's Day, I was absolutely starving and had the munchies for a Pizza. I browsed for Wood Oven Pizzas in Prospect and Basilico Cafe appeared on my feed. Well they didn't disappoint. I...ordered takeaway pizza, arancini and lamb salad on my phone and collected it 15 minutes later. The pizza base was melt in your mouth, the toppings generous and tasty. The arancini was so obviously made in-house and was stunning and the lamb salad was fresh and tasty. It is not very often these days that every dish is a winner. Highly recommended.More

Arrived at 6, with 6, to find nearly full. 'Do you have a booking?' we were asked. We didn't mind waiting, and after 5 minutes a table found. Think it was reserved for later group, so orders taken quite quickly. Pizzas take a while, as...real wood-fired oven not overly large. Half-and-half order OK. Only one-size of pizza. Raised up around edge, but thin in middle. Great base. Nice toppings. Great service, pleasant staff. Please go, and please book.More

I was in here with my family a few hours ago just for a quick dinner, and it did not disappoint! We all ordered pasta and I ordered the spaghetti marinara which was AMAZING! It had eight prawns, as well as squid and other types...of fish. It was a huge serving, as were all the other pastas my family ordered! I’ve tried a few marinara pastas at different places, but this is the only one with such a large amount of prawns! I will definitely come back to try some of their pizzas next time!More
