Having been to this "Hidden Gem" years ago and having enjoyed it immensely I might add, we recently returned for a private party. After the VERY delicious meal, we commented "why don't we come here more often?" Well we have returned three times since and each meal was better than the last. The fried calamari was cooked to perfection served... More

Excellent food in a cozy home like atmosphere...the place has been there forever. Many occasions have been celebrated here....and for good reason. The smell of garlic is in the air when you're passing the street in your car....for me that's always a good sign !

They've been here many decades and try to keep their reputation intact. There's a bar and a couple of dining rooms and parking. The food is what you expect on the island, having so many Italian restaurants. Good sauce and good old fashioned Italian cooking. They won some awards years ago, I think for desserts. The dining room gets noisy... More

The oldest restaurant on Staten Island. We haven't been there for quite a while but visited in May 2014 and were very pleased with the food and prices. We went on a Sunday when they have a price fix meal and the choices were very good. They also have reasonable prices on wines. The service was great. Looking forward to... More

Basilio Inn is like stepping off a plane and dining in Italy. It is such a charming setting and there are no pretenses at this charming Italian home style gem. It is set back from the street and has a lovely outdoor seating area that overlooks an herb garden and bocce ball court. The food is simple and delicious. The... More

Incredible food, good service, and a value. This Staten Island gem is the oldest restaurant on the island, and there is a reason for its longevity. The owner personally shops for food and serves large portions that are fresh and delicious. The Pork Osso Bucco is fantastic!!

We literally found this great place because another place we had picked had a wait oh an hour and half for a table. We pulled in and got a table for five in a corner of the dining room. What fantasic dishes , everyone in our party loved the food. Service was a delight. We most definately plan to return.

The food is always fresh and prepared very well. You can taste the freshness in the pasta sauces. In the fall, they grow their own pumpkins for pumpkin soup; I even give up the delicious pasta fagioli for it. The owner is very personable and the staff is very friendly and efficient. They are closed for the winter until March... More

We've been going to Basilio's for more than 30 years. It used to be open only in warm weather, but some years ago, they added a heating system for the dining room and it now stays open. Located on a little dead-end street about 3 minutes from the Staten Island side of the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, you will be dining... More

My friends and I celebrated one of our birthdays there this year and last year also. Since she lives in Staten Island we took the short trip over the Verrazano. The quaint restaurant is only a few minutes from the bridge literally! We all had something different and we all were equally satisfied. I had a calamari casserole in sauce... More
