“Our Favorite, never had something we did not like!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

I was disappointed to see so many negative reviews about this pizza place...Let me start by saying it is a smallish pizza place with a small restaurant in the back and some seating up front. It can be loud and crowded because the pizza is amazing! I dont know when people started rating pizza joints as if they were a five star restaraunt. Okay enough of my rant....

Some suggestions, I find the specialty pizzas worth the price. My pick is the Eggplant Delight. If you like eggplant this is covered crust to crust with eggplant, sauce, ricotta and mozzarella. It runs about $16, this pizza is heavy. One slice fills you 2 slices will stuff you. We have tried several of their other specialty pizzas and had similar experiences with the abundance of toppings and great taste.

As for the service, always quick most the time friendly. Sometimes they are busy and work hard to get you in and out fast. However, after being repeat customers (about once a month) for about 6 years these guys know us and you can tell they respect our repeat business.

Give them a try and enjoy a slice of this delicious pizza just don't expect a 5 star restaurant. It is just a nice place to enjoy a tasty slice!

“Popular spot.”

The noise level was very high due to the hard surfaces echoed on it. The food was pricey for the quality offered

“Not for us”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

We've been trying the local pizza places and this one came highly recommended. I don't really know why. Well, when I went back to one of the raving fans and asked she said, "Oh, you can't just order a plain pizza. You have to go with one with one of the specialty ones." I guess that was our mistake. There was nothing special about the restaurant itself. The staff wasn't welcoming by any means. I'll give them, they had a lot of specialty pizzas - that looked like they'd been sitting around a while. We won't be back.

“Awesome Thin Crust Pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

If you crave New York style thin crust pizza, do yourself a favor and give Basillico's a shot. Location isn't the most convenient, unless you're shopping around the Viewmont Mall area, but it's worth the trip.
P.S. It's way cheaper to buy a pie than by the slice, if your not alone.
