***** Basilico’s Original Hand-Tossed Pizza, 9140 Forest Hill Boulevard, Wellington, Florida 33411, (561) 333-4949.

Last night, Jeff Eats took-out from red sauce Italian joint… Basilico’s Original Hand-Tossed Pizza in Wellington. and I gotta tell you, this restaurant makes some really delicious stuff.

Real simple concept, order at the counter/takeout…or the food is delivered to something like 6 inside booths/handful of outside tables. By the way, the restaurant is located in a very quaint cool looking “New England” style strip-center…which also has a Chinese joint, a Dunkin’ Donuts, an ice cream store, a custom cake- making store, a liquor store–you won’t think- you’re in Florida! Real interesting, in addition to ice cream and yogurt-the ice cream store sells fresh orange juice quarts/gallons-candy by the pound, and has a whole area for fresh flowers…the Chinese joint which is basically a takeout has 4 large 6- seat booths-for those who want to eat-in. Like I said 1 second ago, the strip center has a real different feel to it!


Jeff Eats “got to” Basilico’s around 6:30pm last night and there was something like 8 guys behind the counter making pizzas etc. and 2 young ladies at the register. In the 25 minutes or so that I waited for my order, every booth inside was taken and I watched numerous pickups and phone orders being taken…I didn’t notice anyone eating outside.

Basilico’s menu is loaded with appetizers, salads, pizzas, pastas, strombolis, calzones, hot/cold subs, entrees. You can check its menu/prices at

Ordered items included large 16″ pizza ($9.99), Chicken parmesan sub ($7.99), sausage & peppers stromboli ($6.79), eggplant parmesan entrée (pasta side/garlic breadsticks- $10.59) and like I said 3 seconds ago, the stuff was really delicious.


Jeff Eats has been to his fair share of red sauce Italian joints down here in south Florida and- this Basilico’s joint is a huge winner. The food was really-solid, the prices CHEAP (I believe I’m suppose to say inexpensive or very reasonable)-trust me, Basilico’s gives you a ton of food for cheap-money-and the food isn’t crap quality!

Let me wrap this up for you, if Basilico’s was by my house (which unfortunately it isn’t) Jeff Eats would definitely be a very steady customer.

Basilico’s Original Hand-Tossed Pizza is open 7 days a week.

    Jeff. The Chinese joint has changed names and is terrible. Basilico’s has great red sauce , but the prices are higher then you think. All the specialty items in the window , etc. are very high. Try the Philly Cheesesteak and Baked Ziti next time. Very good.

      I’ve been getting food here for the past 5 years. It’s all good. I especially like their pizza. it’s a real NY slice. On the prices you mention, they really give you a lot of food for the money so I have to agree with jeff that the prices are cheap. That eggplant parm entrée that Jeff mentioned is big enough to feed 2 people.

    Glad you found this one.
    I live right across the road from the center.
    By the way that Dunkin Donuts just opened this past Saturday.
    You are right the center looks very New Englandish.
    Born and bred in Brooklyn so maybe I know pizza and their pizza is excellent.
    I must mention that their white clam sauce is one of the best that I have ever eaten.
    They have very pleasant help and I have found the food to be very reasonable for what you get.

  3. Jeff,
    Basilico’s food is terrific.
    It does terrific business because the food, the prices, service, portions are all excellent. It also doesn’t hurt that there are so many home communities within 5 minutes of the restaurant.
    My wife and I take out at least once a week from Basilico’s and it has never not been good.

    Read about Basilico’s this morning.
    I just had lunch there (ate outside) with three co-workers and have to tell you that the pizza, veal parm sub, chicken parm sub and philly cheese steak sub that we had were all terrific.
    Good pick. Good recommendation. We will definitely be back the next time we are working in the area.

  5. Dinker says...

    I have had that eggplant parm entree and the portion is enormous. Enough to feed 3 people. The prices are super right.

  6. Cheryl A says...

    Great takeout.
    My family uses them at least twice a month.
