Our first time there and we would go again. The mushroom/fungi appetizer was to die for! Our meal was very good. The bread was fresh and the wine was wonderful. The waiter was from Italy and very knowledgeable. Nice restaurant for Olympia.

It's been a while since we last visited Basilico. This is because the restaurant is Not Cheap. At all. It is one of those places you eat at when it's a very special occasion. This was one: our wedding anniversary. I think I'd mentioned it...More

If you're in the mood for fabulous Italian food with fresh ingredients and a variety of old-world specialties, I highly recommend Bailico's. They'll also recommend wine pairings, including half-pours, at equally reasonable prices. This is a great place to treat others or yourself.

We found this little place tucked into an obscure storefront in downtown Olympia. Wow. The food, albeit expensive, was perfect, authentic and served with skill. It is the perfect place to celebrate that special event or person.

Not sure why others are so fond of this place. The service was lacksidasical at best & very very rushed (ie, entrée brought when salads were still being consumed); rushed even to the point of asking if we wanted dessert while still eating entrees! They...More

... from the sections on the menu to the selection, from the atmosphere to the taste of the food, this place reminded me of several restaurants I visited earlier this year while in Italy. I had a salad and Strengozzi alle Verdure. Friends had the...More
