“Very good food.”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

I can have reactions to the food in many Italian restaurants. We visited Basilico on Saturday nite.
My dinner was excellent. No food issues also. Had the Veal Piccata and the Arugula salad, Zabaglion for dessert.......Great meal as was the wine.

Actually, we were at the PAC in Newark on Sunday and would ordinarily go to one of the Portugese restaurants, instead, we returned to Basilico. Very good service and food. Highly recommend this place.

“Quality in all aspects”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

From the service to the presentation to the food itself...quality in every aspect. My wife had the veal chop; excellent. I had a grouper special that was indeed special; not overcooked as most restaurants are prone. The service was exceptional.

“Great local restaurant”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

It is our "go to" restaurant in NJ. Love the Caesar salad, Antonella salad, Branzino, chops, pasta, and recently had a shrimp/scallop dish that was terrific. Also have really fabulous desserts: chocolate caramel tarte and soufflés are among the favorites. Sometimes hard to get a reservation but try!

“Good service - Average food”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

Four of as went to Basilico this past weekend for an early dinner. The service was very good but the food was just average. I had the sardine appetizer special which had 3 small sardines with a lot of vegetables. This was the theme of all the dishes. Overload with vegetables and it looks like you are getting a big portion. The other appetizers were alright and the same with the entrees.
