Located on the second level of the five-star Regent Hotel, Basilico is an award-wining Italian Restaurant with a posh look. Although both the a la carte and buffet menus are on offer, the buffet certainly makes a name for the restaurant.
- Good value weekday lunch buffet: Basilico is famous for its weekday lunch buffet. For the price of S$50++, no other Italian restaurants in town offer such high quality buffet like Basilico does. The buffet spread is not huge, but the top-notch quality of antipasti and desserts makes it a steal.
- Brilliant selection of antipasti: Designed for a perfect start for an Italian meal, but Basilico’s antipasti, to many people, is more than that. This restaurant’s antipasti taste so good that many diners are lost in its world and forget the mains. The presence of a beautiful selection of cold cuts, salads, cheeses, seafood, bread, olive oil and vinegars creates powerful pull while premium items like parma ham and rock melon highlights your meal.
- Dazzling homemade gelatos for a perfect end: The dessert counter features an authentic array of Italian desserts for everybody to complete the meal. Want something excellent? The restaurant’s smooth, rich and creamy gelatos, praised as one of the best gelatos in Singapore, are there to make you melt.
