We have been to Basil's many times and have yet to be disappointed. I believe the owner sets the tone and it carries over to the front desk (where he is usually there to personally welcome you) to the kitchen and the wait staff. Very well run restaurant. The Shrimp Torino is one of the best appetizers ever. Tried the... More

Basil's is simply a great place. The menu is extensive, quality is superior. The atmosphere is super friendly. We are there twice a moth at least. Great specials and happy hour.

We had a reservation at 7 for eight people. The staff is so nice, and the food was wonderful! The house cab was good, but not a very big "pour." Our only complaint was it was very loud and the table behind us was especially so. Then the poor acoustic guitarist came out. Felt bad for him as the crowds... More

Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Never go away hungry, for sure! A lunch with old friends or an amiable dinner with another couple... always a good experience.

Service was really good. Owner is visible and very accommodating. The food is delicious and reasonably priced given the extra large portions. Atmosphere is filled with lots of repeat customers due to the quality of food. It can be rather loud if you are dining on a Friday night when they have live music. If you are looking for a... More

I have dined at dozens of restaurants over the years and this was this first time anyone has shaken my hand, very impressed. Service was excellent. We started out with muscles in a white... More

All of the food on their menu is top notch. I have had everything from their burgers, pasta and steak and was very pleased with all. The portions are very generous as well.
