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.

My partner and I try to visit this restaurant as often as we possibly can. The food and service is excellent every time we go there, I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone! This restaurant should be renamed Basil and Devine for obvious reasons.

More of the fantastic food we have come to anticipate and expect at this restaurant. They are always very busy which is a sure sign of quality. The wait staff appear to be well trained and are always efficient and super courteous and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble for them.
We'll be back again in the very near future.

I was disappointed. Friends had told me how good this place was, and after reading the menu I decided on garlic mushrooms followed by a pear walnut and blue cheese salad. I was looking forward to juicy mushrooms and then a crisp salad of thinly sliced pear and blue cheese.
The mushrooms were squashed flat and crispy around the edges, and then my salad arrived. No crisp pear, but either cooked or canned! Plenty of rocket and walnuts and the dressing was quite nice, but not much blue cheese.
We had to remind our waitress to bring glasses, but it was Saturday night, so that was excusable. I was hoping when I paid that someone would ask how our meal was, but that didn’t happen.
Not sure I’d go back, if I do it would just be for a coffee as the couple who had that said it was good.

Amazing, personalised service and delicious food. Great menu with lots of choices and options to share meals. We had Bruschetta and Garlic Mushrooms for the first time and they were awesome. Then we shared a Pollo Pesto Pizza. There was nothing left to take home. We are regulars and like to try something new each time.

Girls evening out, great evening, food and service was excellent. Two of the girl had not dined at Basil & Vine before and were very impressed. They will definitely be back for dinner as they want to try everything on the menu. Next catch up will be breakfast.

Sorry we held the team up with closing.

Thanks

Have been here several times now and had several different dishes. The meals are usually quite large, although my daughter had the Lasagne last time and it did not have the chips which came with it when I had it previously. It is always delicious and very reasonably priced. The service is great.
