Basilico means basil in Italian, and the first thing that Carlos had to do in a kitchen was to chop basil, hence the name of the restaurant. Rodrigo’s brother, Luciano, was in the business for five years before tagging along the project with the two friends and the team was formed to start this wonderful experience. Basilico has been rated "Excellent" by Zagat in 2002 and every year since. It gives us such pride and joy to know that we are touching people by doing what we love, and to have met so many beautiful people along the way, we can’t be thankful enough to our customers/friends who without their ongoing support and patronage we wouldn’t be here, thank you and we love each and every one of you.
We offer over 60 labels of wine from all over the world and our signature dish is "linguini frutti di mare," which has been voted best of Miami by the New Times in 2002.
