About Us

Situated in the heart of Newlands Village, Basilico first started serving homemade Italian dishes to the local community in October 1999.

 

Over the years, by serving simple, affordable and wholesome Italian food in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, it has become a busy family-orientated restaurant loved by the neighbourhood.

 

Anthony Bounds originally founded the small single floor restaurant and fell in love with one of his waitresses, Krista.anthony kristaWhen a fire broke out in the restaurant on its 10th. anniversary, he turned the tragedy into a blessing.
He closed the restaurant to refurbish and extend it, and was heavily involved in its redesign. But he also took some time off to marry the love of his life, Krista.
