Good value food, well-prepared. Friendly staff and service good. Good average family restaurant. Lunch time specials are a good deal, but not many customers. Corked wine (glass) was quickly replaced. Tables beginning to look a bit tired.

Visited Basilico with my wife and 1 year old. Was quiet when we entered, maybe a mid week thing, but by the end of the night we thought the place should be busier. Having a 1 year old it's always good to get a child...More
