Had the pleasure of dining here last Saturday night. We went in about 630pm and was seated right away in one of their front tables by a window. They brought over 3 different types of warm delicious breads. I enjoyed a white sangria and my husband had a glass of chianti. We got an clam appetizer with garlic toast points... More

This is a favorite local restaurant for Italian food. The veal/chicken/shrimp Marsala is delicious. I love the ravioli trio.

First, let me say that the food was very good. The waitress was unfriendly but did soften up a little after we (verbally) disarmed her. But here was the strange part. When the bill came, I usually do a quick view to make sure all the items were captured. Rarely do I add it up because the computer doesn't make... More

Will be going back soon. This is a local favorite and everyone in our large party thought their food was very good. This is not a fancy place, but neither are the prices. Our service for such a large party was excellent. No complaints, only raves.

Basil's is a very good family owned restaurant. It has been serving very good food for many years and hence has a very good local customer base. It's great size servings at a reasonable price.

We went to Basil for my birthday and could not have been more pleased. They have changed their menu to have more options at a reasonable price. To die for is the butternut squash ravioli. They are scrumptious and I always save a few to take home. We enjoy the quiet atmosphere where we can actually talk and hear each... More

Went here for the first time with friends and family to celebrate my birthday. We went here based on a recommendation. It was lousy just lousy. The staff are not very happy at all. Not rude but no personality at all. Now for the food, not great in my opinion. We orders a few apps. - calamari, stuffed mushroom with... More

what an extensive creative menu - all the classics like lasagna and veal parmigiano, plus creative ravioli like butternut squash, chicken-spinach-walnut, and lobster ravioli. Combo plates so you don't have to choose between chicken or veal marsala. And a collection of specials that were just delicious (but ask the price - the rack of lamb melted in your mouth but...

They do not have dedicated pots and pans for cooking gluten free. I got chicken brocolli and ziti last week and got sick. I called and the chef said they cook gluten free pasta in pots and pans that had previously been used for gluten containing pasta. They thought running it through the dishwasher was sufficient. When I said I... More

You know that restaurant that has your favorite meal you could eat three times a week without breaking the bank (Ziti with chicken and broccoli)? How 'bout that place you can bring your folks when their in town and still feel like you're relaxing at home? Or a nice quiet night out with the Mrs? Basil is ALL of those... More
