    We sat outside in the evening and really enjoyed the patio lights and view of the river. It was very quaint and quiet. The food was delicious. The pizza was superb and the flavour of the fettuccini was amazing. The portion sizes were just right.

    Spaghetti from a can. Meat balls were tough. Chicken Marsala was not made with red wine but a cream sauce. Would not recommend.

    My son has anaphylactic allergies and the team took this very seriously and even brought him out his own order of garlic bread to ensure there was no sesame. He had the biggest smile ever because it made him feel very special and his anxiety significantly decreased.

    Had a wonderful meal with great service. Restaurant was happy to accommodate some allergies and food sensitivities. Patio since being redone is really nice with a great ambiance. Little more to go on the lower level but they are working on it. Overall a lovely meal in a great setting.

    This is a restaurant that we have been to many times under different management. It has undergone a significant renovation, and is bright, contemporary and interesting. Service was very polite and attentive. Everyone's main was excellent, but some of the appetizers are still finding their way. We are looking forward to returning many times this summer!

    4th time having dinner here. Food is outstanding everytime and hot. prices are reasonable, My husband enjoyed a Guiness on tap ( not an option at other places). Natasha has been our server each time and she is very pleasant, efficient and knowledgeable. I usually take her recommendations. Can't wait to go again!

    Food was great but waitress barely checked on us and everything took a very long time to come. Ran out of water and had to wait a long time to be able to ask for more. Got the impression as a young couple we weren’t priority to some older more affluent guests.

    BasilicoResponded on June 13, 2022Hello Cole, I would like to reach out and apologize that you had a bad experience with us. We have been dealing with staffing issues for quite some time now and hate to hear that anyone is waiting too long for service, regardless of their age. We would love to have the opportunity to make this right and ensure your next time dining with us is a great experience. Warmly, The Basilico Team

    Over prized sandwiches then charge extra $5.00 for fries

    BasilicoResponded on June 13, 2022Hello Dan, We are so sorry you feel that our sandwiches are overpriced. We always strive to bring value to our guests at every opportunity. Due to using the best available ingredients and preparing everything from scratch we sometimes find it challenging to offer meals at a lower price point than $20 for a sandwich and fries. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you again and make it right. Regards, The Basilico Team

    I had a great visit, but the room was too hot. I think the lighting may be contributing the extra heat. I really wish they gave me a pitcher of water, I do not want to wait for a water refill.

    It was very nice. We are so glad that there is now an Italian restaurant in Bracebridge. We thought the menu was a little limited, would like to have seen a more expanded Italian food selection. ex. veal dishes The restaurant has a lovely ambience.

    The noise level, ambience and food was all very good , very nice. We found that the wine list was a bit pretentious notwithstanding they know their customer base so good for them. If you don't like craft beer this is not the place for you, Muskoka craft beer is closest to Stella just as a hint on what the non Craft Beer Drinker might enjoy. Overall might just be the best place in Bracebridge the dime.

    Love to try new places ...your ambience was great ...food disappointing........mozza sticks were just ok....but chicken Parm sandwich was just dropped on a plate .....no presentation whatsoever .....love a little soup or a good salad but you offered neither...carbs seem to be your specialty ......loved the menu before this one took over ......looked forward to trying but not to be .......if I return it will only because I love the outside patio.....sorry but I'm a food lover and I did not enjoy my meal....cheers and good luck

    We enjoyed a great evening at the pub at Inn at the Falls. The deep fried pickle was a little too heavily breaded for me, but nice presentation. The short ribs were wonderful. I brought half of my order home. We finished off with a shared cheesecake. The service was excellent.

    The food was underwhelming. The appetizers were tasteless. I had a salad that was so boring and tasteless that it must have been straight out of a bag. The mains took 45 min to arrive, despite the fact that our table of four was the only table in the restaurant. My short ribs taste good except it was 80% fat! The service was fine. The winelist is really why I would not return. The red wines were mostly priced over a $100 a bottle. Which doesn't correspond to the level and quality of the restaurant.

    Nothing special. Could use a little more variety on the menu. We try to support local but we weren't overly thrilled by our first visit here. First off, I asked if I could bring our own dessert for a birthday dinner and was told it shouldn't be a problem, but to call back after 3pm and speak to the manager. I went out and bought a cake, but later received an email stating we would be charged $6PP for a cake plating fee?? That's a little excessive....a couple bucks per person maybe but $6?? Needless to say we left our cake at home. On top of that, a few of us ordered the Rigatoni Bolognese which wasn't bad, but it didn't even come with any garlic toast or bread for $18? Come on........ We may try it again when the patio is open because we always give a place a second chance if we aren't impressed the first time, but we'll see.
