Good Italian food

Good Italian food, large portions. Piccatta had extra capers I requested. Asked for a meat sauce side and received a full dinner plate of pasta with a sausage for $5. Family liked their penne with onions, peppers and sausage and the pasta with marinara.

We love Basils! A year ago we had a surprise 86th birthday party for my dad and we have been back at least 6 times in the last year. They have a very varied menu with a focus on Italian cuisine. My parents who tend to go to the same restaurant now go to Basils they were so impressed with... More

Been there many times over many years. Food is always great, as is the service. Some very interesting dishes. Love the portabella mushroom appetizer. On a side street off of Medfield Center.

We went to Basil Saturday night for dinner. we were told there was a 30 minute wait for 2 but happily it was only about 15! Linda, our server, was delightful. The décor could use an update but the food is excellent. The veal Florentine was delicious and my husbands prime rib was cooked perfectly. The staff is knowledgeable and... More

Went here in June with friends and enjoyed our dinner. Inside was a little dated but the food was good. It is a good casual place to go for a bite to eat. Nothing fancy. We had chicken Marsala and split a salad. Service was good and had a good bar. We would come back to eat again.

As a visitor to Medfield I didn't know what to expect and the location of the restaurant is not exactly picturesque. But the staff was friendly and attentive; the food was very good and the portions generous; and the price was right. I would recommend the establishment and would dine there again.

We love Basil!!! The food is exquisite, the staff attentive and the atmosphere very nice and quiet so that you can hear each other. It is always our first choice for special occasions and weekend or weekday evenings out. I love the butternut squash ravioli and always save some to take home. All of their menu items are delicious as... More

we dine at Basil 3 or 4 times a year and the food is always terrific. The chicken piccata is always great and the specials amazing.The bar area has had a renovation and is as eclectic as any Boston restaurant. This is a gathering spot for locals and the bartender Betty is quick efficient and personable. The only negative is... More

We had made an advance reservation for a family gathering here and everything was ready for us upon arrival. The host was extremely welcoming and our server gave us ample time to look over the menu since the majority of us had not been here before. At first glance, I found the menu pricey until I saw the huge portion... More

Basil is good and reliable. its a reasonably priced traditional Italian family restaurant. it is popular and can be loud on weekends. wine list is ho hum. good attentive service . good and varied menu. Not as good as Carlos la cucina in Brighton but easy to get to and easy to get reservations.
