We came in without a reservation on a Friday night about 7:30pm. It was about a 15 minute wait and well worth it. Everyone was extremely nice, very friendly. Our meal was delicious, very flavorful; half orders are available on most dishes. We had bread along with the meal that was homemade. Also, we ordered dessert, wonderful. The dining experience...

We had our wedding reception at Basilio's 28 years ago and have been enjoying the food ever since. Yesterday, we celebrated my niece receiving her Masters Degree and Basilio's provided the perfect backdrop for our large party to enjoy ourselves. We started with a bottle of Prosecco for a toast, followed by one of every appetizer on the menu:Mussels;Fresh Mozzarella... More

We have been coming here for a few years, and love the place. The food is very, very good. Seafood is always fresh, the portions are sizeable, and the service is very good. It can get crowded, and is defintely a place for birthday and communion celebrations. It has a small parking area, but so far, have had no problem... More

Good food, home made Italian. A bit loud when all the tables are filled and a bit outdated interior, but worth a visit!

Friends of ours raved about this place. We decided to cross the Bridge and try it with them tonight. Well worth the trip and toll!! Food was great. We all ordered the Duck-Loved it. Service was terrific. Owner very personable. For those folks who do not live in Staten Island, this place is easy to get to coming from Brooklyn... More

Food was basically OK. We were a party of six people. Two people had the Branzino special and enjoyed it. A pasta dish was excellent as was the review of the veal parm. I had the duck breast and it was at best fair. Duck was tough (previously cooked) and dried out and in a MUCH to sweet sauce. Salads... More

Tucked away behind a residential street is this little gem of a restaurant. Delicious food, good service and old world charm.

Basilios restaurant is the best Italian restaurant on Staten Island. The food is authentic in 3 ways. 1- Presentation of food. No fanfare no garnishes.
