This is one of my favorite places to eat in the Naperville area when dining with my wife or friends. The service is always super friendly and high quality meal. Recommend the eggplant and zucchini chips as well as the gyros.

Another fabulous evening at Basil's--our favorite restaurant! Angelo, Nico and Maggie always make us feel like we are at home. Last night Chef Oscar had another home run. His scallops were the best I ever have had and the grilled baby octopus was incredibly tender and tasty! We highly recommend everything on their menu--great for lamb, steak, seafood and vegetarian...

A white tablecloth Greek/Mediterranean experience. All the classic Greek dishes in a comfort food style. Classic spanikopita (opa!) Tender fried calamari. Well/charred delicious octopus. My lamb chops were expertly grilled with a savory rub. Pasta dishes are all well executed. A nice lamb shank too. Specialty cocktails and interesting wine list. Creative deserts. Service is friendly and professional.

My wife and I recently celebrated our 38th Wedding Anniversary. To celebrate, we made reservations at Basil's Greek Dining and when we arrived, we told the Host (Angelo) of our special day. He asked our names and then took us to the bar area where he told the bartender to give us each a drink on the house to celebrate... More

Beautiful meal in mid afternoon. Starting with avgolemeno soup obviously home made and freshly brewed iced tea. Hot day called for a refreshing watermelon salad, and one of us got a perfectly cooked medium rare ribeye sandwich. Will also return for delicious grilled mushrooms.

We brought the family for dinner on a warm evening. What an experience to eat on their patio. So estecially beautiful with beautiful flowers and shade. Our service was once again terrific. Every part of the experience truly made you felt like royalty Our meals were also simply terrific. From presentation to ingredients to taste. All phenomenal.

I went there for a company function. The service and food were good, however we were in a separate room from the dining area. Prior to going to the tables I was enjoying drinks at the bar again excellent service. It has been a few years but at that time I did enjoy the atmosphere and food.
