Basil T's is one of New Jersey's first Brewpubs, featuring award winning handcrafted ales, 2002 and 2003 Great American Beer Festival Gold Medal winner. An open antipasto bar in the center of the dining room is the staring point of our interesting Italian menu. The menu features Brick Oven Pizza, Italian Regional Specialties, including pasta, risotto, meat and fish. Basil T's is Zagat rated and considered one of Monmouth counties best bars. Basil T's Mug Club is the largest in America with 1,000 members. Basil's serves 60 Italian Estate wines by the glass and has 6 Plasma TV's for the perfect view. Come and enjoy 19 years of Red Bank.

Entrée was Pollo Parm. It came with some type of elbow rigatoni. The chicken was good but a little small. The rigatoni was on top of the chicken and I was... More

We’ve been Basil T’s fans for quite some time, and members of the Mug Club and Wine Club. I wasn’t sure if the new atmosphere at BIRRAVINO would be or could be any better. Well, Vic did it again. We love Birravino. The portion sizes are correct, the laid back feeling is really good, and of course the food and... More

Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! Everything was fabulous. The service was awesome. I had the Nero and the steak both priced well and had great flavor. Our waitress's name was Kelly she was very good and recommended great dishes. I am definitely going to go back.

Basil T's is now Birrvino. I have been to the newly renovated restaurant twice this fall and was disappoint both times. Apparently, Vic Rallo travelled to Italy and was inspired to change the format of the menu and and the decor.
