Basilico (Clapham)

We decided to take the slightly "healthier" route last night and try some Basilico take-away pizza instead of the usual Dominoes. Big mistake. We asked if they could deliver - admittedly very lazy of us as it is only a 5 minute walk away - but we were told it would take 60 to 90 minutes to deliver. So we opted for the collection option. We ordered Chicken Ruspante and garlic pizza bread. The garlic pizza bread was burnt, it was impossible to eat as it was so rock hard, it hurt my jaw trying to chew it. Even worse though, our "chicken" pizza had fish on it. I thought I was imagining it at first when I tasted it, but second time round I knew I couldn't be wrong. Others sharing the pizza also found fish amongst the chicken on their slices too. I was horrified. We left most of it and fed it to our dogs, who loved it. Most expensive dog food ever at just under £20.
