A friend and I ate at Basilica before seeing a show on Broadway. If that is your plan, make reservations. The place was packed. They offer a pre-show dinner special (starter, entree, dessert) that is very reasonably priced and comes with a complimentary bottle of wine. The service is efficient and friendly, and the food was good. But be prepared--this... More

If you need a reasonable great food restaurant near the theatre ... go no further! Try a fresh pasta or one of their specials of the day and you will not be disappointed! Enjoy!

Tiny little place in Hell's Kitchen. This restaurant is so small that you have to go outside to change your mind. This place is so small that 2 dinner plates will not fit on the table. Order the prixe fixe or you will spend a small fortune on very little mediocre food. We had the chicken parmesan and the parpadelle... More

In a city where most things are expensive, it was a delight to discover this little place. I've dined at the Basilica many, many times since 2006 and have never been disappointed. Service is great, atmosphere is warm and welcoming plus the food is just excellent and a good value. I think their slogan sums up why this place is... More

When visiting home over the holidays we decided to stop by Basilica based on some reviews I had read. We were not disappointed. Located near Restaurant Row, this small (and I mean small) hole in the wall offers a fine selection of authentic italian food. For starters we had the bruschetta(fresh and delicious) and the garlic bread with cheese on... More

This restaurant is very tight -no extra space between tables, diners, or... More

Food here was excellent. The restaurant is tiny and unassuming, but we had a fantastic experience. It is within walking distance to the Ambassador Theatre, which was a plus because we were in need of a walk after consuming so much delicious food. Make a reservation beforehand.
