Excellent evening dining in a pleasant formal atmosphere. Food is medium to high priced, but deliscious and well worth it. Service is excellent, friendly, and accomodating.

The large homemade butternut squash ravioli with a brown sugar and butter sauce is mouthwatering and to die for. The spicy sausage and chicken over a bed of gemelli pasta with a fontina cream sauce does not dissapoint either. Highly recommend!

We were here for a christening and many members in our party have food allergies. If I remember correctly, they have gluten free options. However, I would call ahead, just in case.

Basil is a warm neighborhood restaurant serving American cuisine with an Italian soul. Chef and owner Tom McGue changes the menu seasonally and offers nightly specials that reflect the best of what is fresh each day. The main dining room is a quiet, comfortable place to enjoy a fine meal with friends and family. And the pub offers a more relaxed setting and a casual menu. Basil also has an upstairs room that can be reserved for private parties and functions. We would also be happy to cater events in your home or at other locations.
