We went right as Basil's opened at 5:00 on Saturday night of Family weekend at Carleton and were glad we did. It quickly filled up and had a line out the door. Plus the take-out business was booming. My son says this is the best pizza option in town, although he also seems to think that the other pizza places are run by members of the family that run Basil's. There is nothing fancy about the place, but the owners and staff are friendly, and the service is prompt. We like our pizza on the thicker side and you can order both a thin or thick crust. The toppings are standard, but you can get Greek toppings and also Greek food (spanakopita, gyros, etc.). If you don't have pizza eaters in your crew, there are chicken fingers and fries as well. This is not destination dining, but comfort food. And sometimes that is just what you want!

The meatlovers pizza was fabulous. I like a pizza that has all the meat flavors with real bacon. Not too much sauce, just eneoph to enhance the other flavors. I would highly recommend this place. Dimitri makes a first class tasty pizza, and the wait staff always has a friendly smile.

We were anticipating somewhat more of a soft dough pizza but their pizza is more crisp, similar to thin pita bread dough. The toppings were generous and it was tasty nonetheless. The spanikopita was a bit greasy but tasty as well. Good customer service, lots of space, but very busy and our wait was a bit long for the appetizer.

The Spanakopita is NOT TO BE MISSED. As I mentioned in the review on George's pizza, there are three Greek Pizza joints in town (Basil's, George's, B&L's) and they are pretty similar in most ways. But, Basil's is the original and most authentic. The owners and workers are so very very nice! Located downtown along the Cannon River.

I introduced my husband to the gyro pizza with the lovely cucumber yogurt tzatziki dipping sauce and he loved it, didn't think it could get any better than that unit the next day when we had the Mt. Olympus with gyro, mushrooms, fresh tomatoes and extra cheese. Wow. (Also the salads are nice) Basil's is such good stuff---I highly recommend it.
