Basilico’s Beginnings: Rosemarie (Rose is known to some and Nonna to others in the neighborhood), is a first-generation American, with both of her parents coming from Italy. She was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and during her childhood, she learned many rich Italian family traditions, including how to cook food from the old country. For 18 years she took great pleasure opening her restaurant dining room every day to members of the Huntington Beach community, as if she was welcoming them as guests into her own home. Her son Tony took over the restaurant.
In 2017 a larger restaurant was built and Basilico’s saw its success continue to grow in Huntington Beach.
Today, Rosemarie’s son Tony runs the restaurant, sharing great food and freedom with friends, family, and neighbors.
This freedom-friendly business is a leader in the community and country.
