Basilico, the mother brand, came to life 30 years ago in the heart of the Italian city. And with it, the Italian Cuisine's passion was born. It is deeply embedded in the roots of the owner and his family, renowned for its air, freshness and exceptional taste.
We decided to bring authentic Italian food to Egypt, starting with Alexandria. The city resembles the cosy vibes in Italy, which is one of the reasons why many Italians live there.
Basilico started at a cosy and warm location in Fouad St., one of Alexandria's most historic and authentic locations. Shortly after that, we expanded to a unique site in Kafrabdo, introducing Trattoria to our fine Italian cuisine experience.
We aim to share the stories and experiences that we acquired
through the years. Sharing the taste of freshness is done out of
love for feeding our customers the unique Italian cuisine. So,
buckle up because we’re taking you on a once in a lifetime journey
where you can experience everything with all your senses. A
mouthwatering voyage where you can smell our hot red wooden
ovens, taste our fresh flavourful ingredients, feel the warm crusty
texture between your teeth while enjoying our cosy atmosphere.

Ahmed Hussein, the founder and owner of Basilico, has had an outstanding experience in the banking field for 18 years. Along with that, Ahmed’s dedication, passion and hard work all together were the cornerstones for this creation.
Ahmed joined forces with his uncle, known as “El Khawaga“, who lived in Italy working as an Italian Chef for 30 years, to bring this dream to life.
Together they strive to send an exceptional message and feeling to every person visiting Basilico. From the ambience, the smell and the family warmth to the tiniest detail of the aprons sending a beautiful message “Tutta La Famiglia Dentro La Cucina!” which means “The Whole Family in The Kitchen”.
