    A warm welcome from the staff who were attentive but discrete all evening. The chefs special of tagliatelle with salmon and pesto was superb as was the spaghetti carbonara. Desserts too were beautifully presented and delicious. House wine very palatable. A relaxing and enjoyable meal .

    This restaurant was recommended to us and it lived up to the recommendation, it was lovely. The service was great. The waiter let us try a couple of wines to see which 1 we preferred before we ordered which was great. The food was lovely, I had a pizza which was a proper Italian pizza, my husband had the daily special of Pasta with creamy pesto and smoked salmon, also very good. Well worth a visit.

    again the meal was delicious - I had the mushroom bruchetta which was not exactly as described but had a lot of balsamic vinegar which was not on the menu and I’m not that keen on. I also had the ravioli which was freshly cooked and delicious. it was a pleasant meal

    Superb food as always with excellent quality - my husband's Calzone was massive, but really tasty with a tremendous amount of filling! I do think that the portion sizes could be reduced as there is too much to manage which is wasteful. The service was excellent especially from our waiter (I think his name was Hugo?). Definitely recommend this restaurant.

    As usual, Il Basilico provides a good quality of food to my non Michelin starred palate. We have been regular visitors when local and to date not been disappointed. Despite the COVID restrictions, or maybe because of them, it was quiet but that’s no bad thing if you hope for a stress free meal. They seemed to adhere to distancing, no touch and other public health guidelines. Will visit again when next on the island.

    A very warm welcome was received from the staff and we were offered a table outside but fortunately shaded. We enjoyed a litre of sangria, spaghetti carbonara and spaghetti bolognaise which were all delightful. We had tiramisu and chocolate brownie with ice cream which Were both heavenly. Excellent lunch!

    This must be the best Italian restaurant in Funchal. The restaurant was full to overflowing with both locals and tourists alike. The food was first class but due to the popularity of the restaurant we had to wait quite long between courses. That said, well worth the wait.

    Friendly staff who are trying extra hard under difficult circumstances to give customers an excellent evening. Food excellent value and sitting outside catching the sunset all adds to a good venue.

    Second time we had dinner here. The restaurant is part of the resort we stay at, but also available for other people. They have nice choices in pastas, pizzas, The service is friendly and they keep an eye at you and fill up your wine when needed. Seating is available inside and out. For Covid19 they have sufficient safety measures.

About the restaurant

A essência das iguarias italianas com vista para a Promenade O restaurante Il Basílico integra o Hotel Porto Mare e tem vista privilegiada para a Promenade, passeio marítimo que estabelece uma ligação pedonal entre a zona do Lido e a Praia Formosa.

Toda a Promenade oferece uma ampla vista sobre o Oceano Atlântico e as áreas ajardinadas que a compõem. Para aproveitar a magnifica vista, existe também um espaço lounge, perfeito para uma bebida ao final da tarde.

O Il Basílico, um espaço descontraído e relaxante com ambiente gastronómico verdadeiramente italiano, apresenta no seu menu diversos pratos com influência de várias regiões de Itália.

Destaque também para a “open kitchen”, onde se pode acompanhar a confeção das pizzas, segundo a tradição de Nápoles, cidade onde se batizou a iguaria.

Clichés à parte, o segredo está mesmo na massa. Para a fusão perfeita entre a massa e o recheio, está o manuseamento da bola de massa da base de pizza, da sua abertura e da sua transformação numa rodela fina.
