Perfect for birthday dinners or romantic celebrations, Basilico is one of those places you really look forward to dining at. Aim to come on a weekday night, and enjoy what they call a "semi-buffet" — a buffet spread of antipasti and desserts, and a choice of one main. Immerse yourself in a wonderful world of breads (go for the squid ink), cheeses (don't miss the truffle!) and charcuterie (parma ham with rockmelon) to start with. For your main, a juicy Sicilian rack of lamb is a good choice, and so is the decadent Risotto al Porcini. You won't be disappointed with their range of desserts — think chocolate ganache tart, sorbets, crème brûlée, pistachio cakes, and more. Lunch served on weekdays ($55++); a semi-buffet during weekday dinners ($88++); and buffet brunch is served on weekends ($98++).
