Quick and easy

Lunch with a friend or a group of co workers is great at this cute cafe. It's Italian food - no surprises there.

We have been eating at Basilio's for over five years. It's one of our "go to" places when no one want to cook dinner and we need a fast easy meal. Our last trip, two weeks ago was a little disturbing. The cleanliness was defiantly sub-par. The tables had a film of "oiliness" which was quite apparent. The table salt... More

From the street, Basilio's looked inviting through the large front windows. The seating arrangements seemed comfortable and not packed in, murals were on the walls, and the restaurant was well lit. At Basilio's, the meals are ordered at the counter and are brought to your table. I ordered Chicken Parmesan which I got with a spaghetti with marinara sauce, instead... More

We have been in here quite a few times. It's a fast lunch place and you get good food for a reasonable price. The staff is always very friendly too. I'm not sure why it's always so quiet in there but take advantage and go get some baked pasta!! The chocolate cake is always good, and huge!!

The food had great flavor but not enough heat. Can't beat the price but this is a very basic Italian restaurant and didn't offer much than a great atmosphere.

Basilio's aims to be an above average Italian restaurant, but is more Fazoli's with better decor and beer. In all fairness, this is a college town and the place is likely crazy busy with students. The staff are fast and friendly. The restaurant has a nice view of the downtown. Not sure we will return.

I'm Italian, I was in Pullman for my semester abroad. I tried this restaurant and nothing is close to italian food!!! However I like the idea that in U.S.A there is spaghetti with meatballs cause it's really tipical of Italy of 1950 but all the rest it's not italian.

Ate here on a recent trip accompanying my daughter to a vet school interview at WSU. We got into town rather late, and were looking for a good Italian restaurant... but on a quick scan, this was the best we found. I was hoping for something of at least (say) Carraba's standard, but this place is really more of a... More

Pleasant staff and good average food. If you are just looking for a good lunch with undue delay. This is a nice spot. Salad with Italian dressing had good flavor. Spaghetti was dressed with a simple and straight forward marinara sauce. No real wine selection but good enough to accompany your basic meal.

Working out of town I found this place on the main street. High open cielings and big windows made this place an open airy place to enjoy a meal. I had a pizza which surprized me It was great ! The salads are fresh and cut small.Friendly service and prompt service. The restrooms are clean. I will be back.
