Food is tasty, good flavor. The Chef Richards Bow tie pasta is excellent! Food has a very home made appeal to it and is seasoned well. Good atmosphere and fair priced. Restaurant was a little dark which made it cozy but difficult to read the menu.

Thank Richard G

Been going to Basil's for several years now, we enjoy the freshly prepared food and different choices not found in town. Richard does a very good job coming out and talking with his customers as well.

Okay, from the outside it kind looks like a pizza place, but you will find white tablecloths on the table inside. Don't let that deter you from coming in with shorts on. We had a visit from the chef, who told us all about his food and recommended one item which we added to what we were already ordering. We... More

Rather than eat at the tourist restaurants on restaurant row we went to the old downtown Corbin to eat with the locals...it was there that we found Dimaggio's Basil Italian Restaurant. We had the chicken parmesan, a basic pasta dish and... More

Chef Richard is delightful! He took the time to sit down and welcome us, and tell us hilarious tales. Oh, yes, the food was some of the best Italian I have eaten.The chicken parm and salad with scallops were awesome. If you are in the area make this the restaurant for dinner. The price point is excellent...a great value for... More
