  • Description
    With an emphasis on fresh, seasonal and authentic Italian cuisine, and offering both à la carte and buffet options, Regent Singapore's award-winning Basilico restaurnt combines drama with exquisite design. Featuring sleek and chic interiors, the 235-seater restaurant serves antipasti, hand-made pasta, roasted meats, wood-fired oven pizzas and Italian desserts. Basilico was named after the humble and understated Basil herb. Known for its classic association with pesto and tomato sauces, Basil has long been regarded as the "gold standard" of true Italian taste for its sweet flavour. Designed by renowned Japanese architect Yasuhiro Koichi of Design Studio SPIN, the restaurant's concept was inspired by the Italian piazza (a public open space) and mercato (market). A central area houses three open kitchens - antipasti, the hot kitchen and pasticceria (dessert). Other features include a rotisserie, espresso bar, a dedicated cheese room, walk-in wine cellar and alfresco style-dining at the terrace overlooking the pool, capturing the informality of Italian culture to perfection.
