Big Bear’s Most Intimate Restaurant

Inside are 13 tables decorated with classic white tablecloths and warm candlelight, letting you take in the all the details of your meal. This smaller restaurant makes it the perfect location for date night or a quiet night on the town.

Country Italian Cuisine Done Right

Sweet Basil Bistro is open for lunch and dinner and offers a variety of menu options. Any time of the day you can choose from delicious antipasti options to whet your appetite, such as the sizzling garlic shrimp or deep-fried cheese ravioli. Insalate, or salad options, are plentiful and use fresh, leafy greens and your favorite vegetables. A healthy selection of paninis featuring the ever-popular Italian sausage and the hot French dip can be chosen during the lunch hours. Each sandwich comes with mista, or a pasta salad. It would not be a real Italian restaurant if Sweet Basil Bistro did not feature a Make Your Own Pasta specialty. Choose from your favorite pasta styles and pair it with unique sauces and protein options too. Finally, the dinner menu is complete with filling options such as the lobster lasagna, chicken parmesan, and gorgonzola stuffed filet mignon. There is something on the menu for anyone who loves authentic Italian food.
