Basilico's Ristorante in Sea Isle - Fabulous Authentic Italian Food

Great food will get you to return again and again to a restaurant and that's how it is at Basilico's. We go there as often as we can and enjoy bringing along friends. They have a great menu of authentic "Red Sauce" Italian food along with great white sauce items as well. You will also enjoy fabulous fresh seafood dishes with wonderful flavors. Check out their specials too. Always creative!

For starters they have a delicious antipasto full of fresh Italian meats and cheeses.

Other appetizers we love are the bang bang shrimp and the incredible meatballs with ricotta.

You will be served fresh bread with a tasty oil, garlic, balsamic dipping sauce. Then comes the complimentary house salad with a very tasty homemade dressing. Watch out or you will be full already!

Let's start the entrees by saying you may get the best lasagna with red meat sauce ever! They also have a seafood lasagna (crab & spinach & white sauce) I love!...get that too!

We highly recommend the chicken parm, veal parm & eggplant parm served with pasta. Fettucine alfredo with mushrooms, chicken & peas is another great dish! The menu has a great selection including pizza and a kids menu. The friendly servers can help you with any questions.

Basilico's is a short drive south of Ocean City via the 59th St.Bridge or the Parkway south.

BYOB Be sure to feed the meters at the stations near your spot. Be sure to make reservations early. Check out opentable.

That's Italian! Andrea Trattoria in Sea Isle

Andrea Trattoria in Sea Isle offers a fantastic menu in a cozy corner along the Fish Alley section of Sea Isle not far from the bridge. The quaint trattoria offers delicious Italian cuisine prepared to accomodate a low sodium diet. The staff is friendly and the prices are reasonable.

Our meal started with incredible fried oysters with a tasty sauce. Next fresh bread, olive oil and antipasto were enjoyed with a nice glass of wine. BYOB

The Italian food options include fresh pasta and risotto of the day, fish, veal, chicken and daily specials. Everyone was pleased with their choices.

Linguini with crab, tomato & garlic


Bronzino filleted at the table.

Veal Parmigiana

top: Risotto with shrimp, clams, & crab

Dessert topped off the meal with Tira Misu

and Molton Lava Cake.

We found this restaurant by googling restaurants with low sodium diets for a family member. We have been very pleased to find a place that understands how high sodium food is not always the best choice.

BYOB Call for their winter hours. 263-5001
