The Sweet Basil is a delightful place to share good food in a cordial atmosphere. We were celebrating a family birthday and what a great time we had. Service is great, never felt rushed and the food was delicious. I had the stuffed eggplant which was a great and large enough that I took home leftovers. I recommend this gem... More

The atmosphere and staff are great. Great food. Good combination of seafood, sandwich and steak options with great daily specialty choices. Pizza is great too. The salad is a spring mix which is great! The only negative is that you are not able to choose a vegetable side with your meal and children's menu items only come with french fires,... More

Sweet Basil occupies a comfortably refurbished house in the small village of Tully, NY; eating there is like going home to mom's for a nice meal. The recent (last year) addition of a large deck for enjoying meals al fresco during the summer months is a nice plus. The food may not be as "homey" as mom's, but it is... More

Good food, fairly varied menu, cozy decor, a bit pricey but not over the top. Service can be slow at times but is friendly and they try. Have used them in the past for catering and they met all expectations.

The atmosphere is friendly, the servicers are also friendly and attentive. The biggest problem is the kitchen is slow, but I will say when I was there last week they overall time for lunch was 1 hr and 15 min and improvement over and 1 1/2 hours.

The food has been mediocre at best and the service only average. However the nice location is attractive but not enough to make up for the ugly feeling my guest and I had when we saw a political campaign message posted prominently by the door. I have never seen a restaurant use the premises for political propaganda and it was... More

my wife and I decided to give it a try and it was the best. You can't go wrong with small town USA. Servers were very attendant to our needs and never let the water run dry.

If you are every near Tully, New York stop at the Sweet Basil. The atmosphere is awesome, the food is terrific, and the service was excellent. In fact it was so good we ate here two nights in a row.

The person at the hotel reception desk suggested that we go to Sweet Basil It was a very good choice. Very friendly restaurant in a origin house. The service was excellent. It has a good menu. We tried the pizza, and I am very critic on that but it was delicious. We brought the half home and it was as... More
