Classy Italian close to Galway Bay

Now into its tenth year, Basilico brings an authentic slice of Italy to the heart of Oranmore, just 20 minutes from Galway. A contemporary restaurant decorated with artwork by owner Fabiano Mulas, there is a genuine buzz. From the part-open kitchen, the crowd- pleasing pizzas are one option, as are regional dishes featuring seasonal ingredients. Start with a basket of hot, crisp calamari fritto with lemon and chilli-spiked garlic mayo before moving on to poached locally caught hake with capers, olives and tomatoes. For pudding, try a perfectly wobbly coconut pannacotta with passion fruit compôte and red berries.
