While it is not easy for a medium-priced restaurant to rise above the rest in the crowded Milanese food scene, "Al Basilico Fresco" has clearly succeeded, if only for the peculiarity of its pizzas made with slow-rising dough. The leavening process can take up to a week, thus making the resulting pizza very easily digestible.
Service is attentive, prompt and courteous.
The evening atmosphere in the restaurant is very pleasant.

Let us tell the truth. This restaurant does not excel but provides you with a good number of dishes.
The staff is fast. For easy business lunches or after the cinema

This restaurant never lets you down. Wether you choose a single pizza or pasta or you go for a full menu with starter, main course and desert you will be totally satisfied. Everything is perfect!!!

Add to that the fantastic staff. They will always do their best to please you. And finally the decor of the restaurant is beautiful - all white and red with only the green of some basil leafs on the walls to add the extra colour. Absolutely stunningly elegant!

Enjoy!

Pino and his staff will welcome you as soon as you step in this friendly restaurant.
A very good pizza (made with whole grain) and an excellent selection of traditional dish from all over Italy.
The place is nice and there's an attention for the details. Good and appreciated 'sorbetto' at the end of the dinner.
Love this place

Had Sunday lunch here with friends. Very friendly staff and pleasant interior. WOuld thoroughly recommend the Cotoletta Milanese with cherry tomatoes and rocket. It is locally know as the elephant ear as the pressed meat takes on the form of the afore mentioned earpiece...
