Italian
For Reservations, Call 07 3888 5088 or SMS 0424 922 745 - Passion for food and love of all things Italian is what inspired Basil & Vine Italian Café. The Fargnoli family come from a very picturesque part of Italy between Rome and Naples called St Andrea, a village set in the rolling ‘valley of the saints’. Life for my grandparents and forebears was very simple and rustic. It is quite near to Mt Vesuvius where the volcanic soil makes the vegetables and tomatoes the best tasting in the world. Food is central to our Italian way of life and large family meals are customary in our household. Meals are relaxed affairs enjoying each other’s company and the sense of community. Traditionally Italian dishes are made with simple ingredients that can be made or procured inexpensively such as pasta, bread, cheese, olive oil and tomatoes. Italian cuisine is all about using quality ingredients well and not so much about fancy cooking techniques.

As my wife cannot consume dairy it was awesome that she was able to ask for a few ingredient changes in the dishes she chose and was accommodated with no issues.
The menu is varied with old school classics and new, modern dishes as well.
We will definitely be returning.

While I initially chose this restaurant because of gorgeous dessert photos seen on Facebook, I have yet to experience one at the restaurant. The dessert menu is limited and somewhat boring compared to some of the creations I have seen on social media - are these just once in while creations not for public consumption.

Have been to your restaurant three times now and hoping the menu is re-vamped soon.

Hi Rita, Thank you for your feedback and recommending us to others. Many of the dessert options you may have seen could be apart of the café menu. During the day we serve chocolate brownie cake shakes, floss boss pancakes and other breakfasts. Are these the photographs you have seen on social media? These items are also available during our night service. When things have gone back to normal please ask one of the staff and they can show you all the desserts available. - The Basil Team

Have been a few times and as Italian is my favourite food Basil and Vine never disappoints.
Try the coffee and chilli pannacota. Delicious!

Whilst our evening with you was OK. Personally I found the food was very rich, the cheese and cream seemed almost curdled!!! Two of us has the Gambaro. A little too much sausage only 5-6 prawns per serve.
Sweets and Wine were exceptional. The service was a bit overpowering at first as we were just trying to have a quiet drink but as the place filled up it was improved.

Visited here with my son and daughter and husband. We went for my son's 13th birthday.
He loved it. These guys make terrific pizzas.

The noise from teenagers in the walk way after a church meet was annoying and distracting
Pity a little more seclusion is not possible

First time here. Calzone delicious. Both pastas were very very creamy. I could only eat half of mine. Maybe good to have more pink sauce or tomato based options on menu. Pepperoni pasta dish had less pepperoni than the mixed one. Staff friendly. Shame about the car park view but we would come back again

Perfect place to catch up with family & friends. Plenty of delicious dishes to choose from & we’re always very satisfied by the end of the night. It’s also worth leaving room to enjoy one of their amazing desserts & great coffee after 😁

this restaurant came recommended by our adult children. I was happy with my meal, but my husband didn't think there was enough seafood in his marinara. we will go back again, and try something different. Just loved the sweet chilli calzone for the starter though.

Great for simple meal of Pizza or Pasta, very tasty. The only down side is some of the sauces are way too creamy and just a bit heavy for a pasta meal. Otherwise enjoyable!
