Basil T's, an iconic part of the Red Bank restaurant culture, recently changed it's name, look, menu, and wine list. The operation closed for a few weeks in August, and the conversion was done in record time. The dining room was opened up from two rooms to one, and the appearance is more rustic/Italian countryside. It has a nice friendly... More

Basil T's had some really amazing entrees. And their wine list is amazing! Great place to go with a large group of people or a small group of friends. Atmosphere is a litte loud, but the food is outstanding!!!! Great place, good service worth the trip and the price! Enjoyed it tremendously!

I came here specifically to try the beer they brew themselves. I had 5 different samples and didn't like any of them. Their red ale was the only one worth trying, but the others were no good. We sat at the bar early on a Saturday evening and had a sampler platter and app. $16 for a small portion of... More

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
