I decided to try this restaurant on a whim as it was near a the cinema which I had attended. The restaurant itself is bright and airy with walls painted a simple white but with accent colours which make the place look actually bigger than it is. The service staff were very pleasant and paid attention to all clients with the professionalism that always seems to be standard in most Italian restaurants. What I enjoyed the most was the little culinary twists to standard Italian flavours. This restaurant has quite a selection of pizzas: you will find the standards, but you will also find a list of creative combinations which will make your mouth water - choices, choices! Having lived in Italy for 4 years and having travelled there off and on for more than 25 years, I enjoy my Italian comfort foods, but I also seek out the innovative restaurants. I will definitely return to this restaurant on my next trip to Milan.

We stopped for a quick dinner. Service was quick and efficient. Food quality is good but not enough to survive the night, unless you have a complete dinner. However, this is going to cost few euros.

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!
