Basilico to celebrate its ten year adventure

Thu, Feb 08, 2018

For many the middle of February represents a special time of the year with the celebration of Valentine's Day. However, the month marks a significant landmark for the team at Basilico; 10 years ago the Italian restaurant opened its doors to the world in Oranmore.

"When we started the business back in 2008, 10 weeks seemed a daunting prospect, never mind 10 years," laughs Valerie Woodlock of Basilico. "We opened Basilico at the beginning of the crash against the advice of family and friends. But we believed in what we were doing, offering the best product at the best price to a correct demographic, and all of those variables helped us succeed. To reach 10 years in business is very pleasing."
