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.

We dined early on a Saturday evening. Although the location is next to a shopping centre, the cafe's carefully decorated to create a nice ambiance. Views of the sunset sky from the generous windows. Unfortunately the food doesn't match the views, too many mixed flavours make for a confusing palate. Heavy sauce that hasn't developed flavours. Some finesse with the flavour combinations would definitely help. We had a arancini, potato pizza and prawn linguini. Desserts were pleasing, the strawberry panacotta and show stopping cake shake were an impressive finale to an otherwise average meal.

Thanks for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed the desserts and the ambience :) We are sorry that you found the mixed flavours confusing. We are working on an authentic pizza which will have very simple flavours for those who prefer Italian simplicity.

Trying to get anyone to answer the phone was an issue. I tried several times on the land line and then tried a couple of times on the mobile. I didn’t want to leave a message as I was in meetings for most of the day , but had a couple of questions in regards to my booking that night . Please make staff aware that when the phone is ringing, to please answer it

Had to stand waiting to be seated for awhile despite prior booking. Staff ignored us waiting at the point they set up for seating but once seated the service was great and food also great. Couldn't eat it all but had a take home box to have it for dinner that night. Have been there before for dinner and had lunch this time. Would go again.

Calzone entree was yummy, and 1 was more then enough to share.
Pasta was creamy and delicious, very generous serves with loads of seafood.
Dessert included sticky date pudding and tiramisu which were awesome.
Top notch food at very reasonable prices.

Hi. It was my second time at Basil and Vine. I had the same Supreme Pizza as the first time and it was a lot spicier than the first one. Didnt enjoy it as much this time. My daughter ordered a pasta dish in which it said chilli flakes on the side and when it arrived, it was mixed in with the meal and she said it was too hot. She planned on putting a small amount in her meal to suit her taste. The meal took a long time to come out. The staff were aware of all this and compensated us with a free drink each which was nice. Staff are very friendly. Apprehensive as to order the pizza again as I dont know if It would be too hot again. Thanks

Basil & Vine
Responded on 28 March 2019

Hi Phil, Thanks for the feedback. We are sorry that there were a couple of issues with your last visit. We have now addressed the issue of the chilli flakes on the side. The pizzas should always be the same as the same recipe is followed but if you do not like hot food please feel free to tell staff and they will ensure they go light on any spicy ingredient. Please also raise any concerns then and there- we are more than happy to fix any issue that may arise.

Excellent Italian food in the heart of Burpengary. Good service by quality, well trained young people. Very courteous and friendly. Their Italian Chianti was excellent with the food. It was a night to remember as it is so rare around this area to get quality food.

Food was amazing. Will definitely return. The only suggestion for improvement would be that the two tables near the front counter were placed too close together, so you're practically dining with them as well. Overall fantastic restaurant.

We love the food here! Every time we have gone here, the food has been exceptional. The waiting staff have always been friendly and very knowledgeable about the food as well, which is excellent. Our only gripe this time round, was that from ordering our entrees to receiving them, was 45 mins and to get water for the table was just under an hour, which normally wouldn’t bother us too much, but people seated after us were getting their meals. Apart from this, we love Basil & Vine and will definitely go back again.

They have air-con, but leave the door open, so it's ineffective, and it was very warm on Wednesday night. If they need to keep the door open, then they need ceiling fans. The waiters need to constantly check for eye contact with customers to see if the customer is wanting to get something. Lasagne was small and unimpressive, about 2 cm high, and 10cm x 10cm square. Pizza was good. Arancini balls for starters were awesome.

Basil & Vine
Responded on 28 March 2019

Hi Roger, Thanks for your feedback. We agree that we need ceiling fans and are working on it - first we need an outdoor roof to keep the rain off the outside dining area and some cafe curtain for the same reason. So it is on the cards after those capital expenditures (which are under construction currently) :) Also just an update - we have changed our lasagna and it is much larger and seems to be a hit. Glad you enjoyed your arancini balls and pizzas
