Wow. What a fantastic experience. Server Staff, Sandy was great. The menu was perfectly sized for a holiday. I really loved the authentic Italian cuisine. Everything was just perfect. The restaurant is so old school it's just perfect. My family absolutely loved it.

An old, vintage 1921, restaurant, Basilios offers great food, great service at reasonable prices. Whether it's a family gathering, or just dinner for two, Basilios is certainly an exceptional choice.

There was nothing wrong with the food or the service here. It was just okay for me. When dining out, I look forward to not only the meal but the ambiance of the place. Except for the history of it's age, which in parts you could tell, it was nothing warm or inviting about the space, and I just hate... More

Feels as if you were traveling the Italian countryside and happened upon a welcoming villa! The menu is varied with authentic Italian dishes. They often use herbs and vegetables grown in their garden for their soups and sauces. The owner shops the market himself to be sure to offer the freshest items and different specials. The atmosphere is comfortable and... More

Staten Island has the very best Italian restaurants in the Tri State area! However, this is NOT one of the best....especially if you really like good old red sauce pastas. The place is charming (a euphemism for needing to update), and the owner is absolutely lovely. The service is comfortably slow, and the food is fine. I guess I just... More

The food is consistently good, flavorful and well proportioned. The atmosphere is warm and comfortable... It's like eating in an Italian Villa. I've had many selections from the menu and they never disappoint.

What a pleasant surprise to have discovered Basilio's Inn on our bike tour exploring the sites of Staten Island. The restaurant offers a variety of unique authentic Italian dishes, fresh veggies picked from the backyard and the best mozzarella you ever had the fortune to taste. Everything we tried (from mussels to tomatoes-cucumber-salad to the mozzarella to the bread) was... More

Oh my goodness this is the greatest Italian Restaurant I have ever eaten at. That is from Naples to Roma to Palermo. The food is cooked to order. And the atmosphere is slow and easy. For the greatest experience In Home cooking, don't pass this up when in the NYC area.
