Tasty! - Edit

I love Basilico, it's my go-to pizza place for when I need a quick pizza fix and they are the only in my area that offer vegan cheese. They have 2 pizzas with vegan cheese and you can add your own toppings to a margarita to give it your flavour. The delivery time is always quick and under what they say it's estimated at.

Pros: Vegan cheese and wood fired base, Quick delivery

Cons: A bit on the pricey side

A little bit disappointing - Edit

I ordered pizza from here a month or so ago as I wanted a pizza I hadn't cooked for a change. I had a 12" gluten-free 'vegetarian' pizza, with vegan cheese which cost £17.40. I was quite disappointed when it arrived as it was pretty sparsely topped. I don't think it was worth the money or the dashed expectations! That said, the problem may have been more the gluten-free base which inflated the price and my expectation of what I'd get for my money - the pizza is nice enough, so a solely vegan pizza may be a better experience.

Pros: There are vegan and gluten-free options

Cons: Not enough topping, Expensive

Watch out for non-vegetarian cheeses - Edit

This company describes many of its pizzas as "vegetarian", but doesn't guarantee that the cheeses used on these pizzas are made with vegetarian rennet. Their excuse: "Most of our vegetarian customer will eat this [sic] pizzas with no problems"! So if you like your "vegetarian" food to definitely be suitable for vegetarians, I suggest you avoid all Basilico restaurants.

Made order, didn't get pizza! - Edit

I ordered a vegan pizza from Basilico Crouch End, but it still hadn't been delivered over an hour after I placed the order. I then called the restaurant, and got an automated recording stating that they were closed! Assuming that I'd never be getting the pizza, I then ordered food from somewhere else. A day later I contacted them through their online feedback system to ask why I'd been able to place the order even though they were closed, but never heard anything back.

A few days later I noticed that my card had been charged by Basilico for the pizza I never received, so I called the restaurant and was told that the manager would call me back. He didn't, so I called again, and was told that the online ordering system wasn't switched off when the restaurant was closed, and that I would receive a refund in 5-7 working days.

Having first waited for over an hour for a pizza that never arrived, and now having chase the restaurant up as well as wait well over a week to get my own money back, I think it's ridiculous they didn't offer me any sort of compensation. I've ordered from Basilico twice before, and although on those occasions I did actually receive a pizza, it was always late. I won't be ordering from them again.

Pros: Staff member apologised on the phone

Cons: Never got my pizza

Pizza delivery incl. vegan cheese - Edit

Ordered the vegetarian pizza with vegan cheese and additional topping online. Payment by card and the status of the order can be checked online too. Ours was delivered within 20 min or so.
Pizza's are big. Next time, I'll go for a small one or a half and half large version.
The pizza bases are thin and cooked in a wood fired oven. The only pizza delivery company I know of that offers vegan cheese (thanks Happycow!)

Pros: thin pizza bases with gluten free option, offers vegan cheese, can order online

Cons: not the cheapest but good quality
