The Marsala was wonderful and just couldn't be better. Homemade breads were scrumptious. Service was very good and attentive. It can get busy but worth the wait. This place is off the beaten track in a local neighborhood so if your from out of town...More

There was literally no wait and we were seated right away. The menu is Italian and their food was very delicious. The wait staff were very experienced, fast and pleasant so what more could one possibly want (well for free would have been nice!)

This was our second time here. The food is very good and the specials are outstanding. The service was somewhat slow for a week night and not quite as solicitous as I might have expected.

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.
