Spur of the moment choice from reviews on TA. What an excellent choice it was!! .... Located in a small strip mall that is undergoing MAJOR cosmetic renovation but worth the trip under scoffolding to get inside the door. Food was fantastic for all 3 diners. Authentic Italian dishes. Marinara Sauce utterly divine. Not too tart or too sweet. Service was excellent also. No hovering but stayed attentive to our needs. Pricing was reasonable for being so close to the city proper. If ever in the area would go again. Close to O'hare Airport and hotels so any travelers with an overnighter or longer should consider this as a choice when wanting authentic homemade Italian dining.

Great food at comfortable price. At first we didn't think much of it from what it use to look like from outside. Now the restaurant is getting a face lift. On the inside the restaurant has plenty of space, even for private parties. If you want exceptional waiter, I recommend Jose. Did I mention the great food!

I was sent to Basilico by the bartender, desk clerk and shuttle driver from my hotel. In fact the shuttle driver drove me to the restaurant. When we pulled up I was a little disappointed because the exterior looks like a restaurant in a strip center. Needless to say that is all I can say bad about this excellent restaurant. The food was off the charts and the service was top notch. The pasta sauces and the clams casino was to die for!!! If you are staying in the O'Hare area do not miss this great neighborhood Italian restaurant. It has made my list of favorites!!

Have been going there for 20+ years. Food is excellent. Had a small wedding dinner (30 people)in one of the banquet rooms last year and it was great. They are very accommodating and basically let you run your party whatever way you like. Always go there for a work lunch when it's a "special occasion". Restaurant is not too fancy, but there are many menu choices and the food is authentic. Highly recommended!

Traveling from out of town and gave this local place a try. Good, fresh pasta, but not a quick meal. Serving size was good-fills you up, but not lots of leftovers.
