We have been here a few times now and the food has always been good. Greeted very warmly at the door and the place has a lovely relaxed atmosphere. It felt cozy and warm on a freezing Saturday. Both of our pizzas were absolutely delicious...More

Family Sunday pizza lunch was good, the service was efficient and our waitron had the presence of mind to explain that the food may be slightly delayed due to wet pizza oven wood. Pizza very good, give the chorizo and baby calamari a try.

The waitress was very friendly. It is recommended to book a table. The food was very tasty. Dad and brother had pizzas, mom and I had pasta. Would definitely go again.

We went to Basilica for dinner as a group. We counted the cash twice before we paid the bill, the waitress took the cash and then came back upstairs and insisted we were R500 short. Not acceptable! We will not be back!
