Came here with my wife and son for dinner. Although a bit noisy, the cozy dimly lit atmosphere was quite comfortable. The weight staff were very friendly and even humorous. We started off with an order of calamari. The portions were huge and it was fresh and flavorful. Next, we all shared a meatball pizza, which was among the best... More

I have eaten here numerous times and have always had a great meal. Just eat there on Sunday and had the Sunday Sauce and it was one of the best I have had when eating out, But the star of the show was the appetizer made up of a selection of Italian meats, sausages, cheese, and olives, the meats are...

Good fresh ingredients. Service is very good and attentive. I have had business and family meals at Basil's and the food / service have always been very good. Fridays and Saturday are very busy, so simply stopping in is not recommended. The bar area, although nice is very cramped when busy and it is difficult to have a conversation and... More

Wasn't sure what to expect from a part brew-pub and part Italian restaurant but was very impressed and would say the food is some of the best Italian around. The beer is good but the highlight is the food. The atmosphere is inviting for either family, friends, or couples. We ordered a variety of italian dishes and you see all... More

Excellent choice when dining in Red Bank with an outstanding wine list chosen by the owner. The staff from the managers to the bus boys do an outstanding job to make your visit pleasurable. The quality of the dishes can only be compared to the finest Italian restaurant's in Italy. They also have their own Mug Club with their own... More

I took my out of town relatives to Basil T'sI last night. We were given a menu that featured Big Vic's roll back menu. When we ordered off this menu the waiter become a totally different person. He mentioned numerous times that we ordered off of the "discount menu" and gave us some serious attitude. I was shocked and embarrassed... More
