Basilico Ristorante Italiano

Las Vegas
Italian Restaurant

Featured In

After helping Oscar Amador launch Anima by EDO in early 2022, Francesco Di Caudo is now doing his own thing with Basilico in the same southwest corner of Las Vegas. The restaurant anchors the retail component of the new under-construction Evora apartment complex, but is already drawing fans before the first tennants arrive later in the year. Di Caudo's take on Italian cuisine ranges from traditional (a Sicilian-style eggplant parmesan) to modern (lamb tortellini in a braised prosciutto broth) and playful (a "cigar" of duck, foie gras, and mushroom, presented in a glass ashtray with black sesame and truffle "ash" for dipping). The chef is eager to stretch his creativity with a variety of seafood and a thick, chunky risotto that's given frequent seasonal updates. The main dining room is bold and contemporary with accordion style windows behind the bar that open wide to a spacious, temperature-controlled patio–a perfect spot to enjoy the daily Social Hour discounts (4-6 pm).
