Very old-fashioned ambience... The restaurant looks like you're in the late sixties.... Very good Italian food at affordable prices... The restaurant is at the end of the block in a residential area... The staff is very friendly and assertive..

This restaurant reminds me of what it was like in the old days, the atmosphere is very rustic, the service is excellent. And then the food...I never usually eat Italian food out, my Mother has fed me the finest Italian food my whole life so it is very hard to please me when it comes to Italian. This place is... More

Basillio Inn is one of the oldest restaurants on the island. It is located on a cul de sac just a few blocks from the bridge. There is an outdoor eating area and even bocce ball courts

My parents and I had a wonderful dinner to celebrate my dad's birthday a little before Christmas. My parents have dietary restrictions, including celiac disease, and Maurizio and his assistant couldn't have been more accommodating. It's very tricky to keep food tasting under those circumstances, yet with their help and the skill in the kitchen, the results were outstanding. Their... More

If you've read my earlier review, you know I'm a fan of Basilio's. We went there for dinner on Saturday, and it was as good as ever -- maybe better. The steak was memorable -- perfectly cooked. Only comment was that the salads -- we shared one featuring pears and another featuring beets -- could have used more taste, but... More

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 !
