“Basil's can't be beat”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Basil's is with out a doubt the best place to eat in Narragansett. Basil himself is a legend, and a master at sauces. Take my advice and fore-go joints like Trio where kids do the cooking. It's no more money in the long run, just better meals, professionalism and experiences prevails.

“Always the best”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

We have been going to Basil's for the past 27 years and each time it has been wonderful, it is a fine dining experience.

It's for that special night out, I would expect to allow for around 2 hours of dining pleasure and it is on the expensive side but well worth it.

The food and service is top notch, if you want a grand meal make your reservations now.

“Great little Continental Restaurant”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

Basil's is our favorite local restaurant with continental cuisine and atmosphere right here in our home town of Narragansett, RI. Vasilio, the owner, is from Greece and has been the chef at a number of internationally recognized restaurants. Vasilio and his wife, Kathy, decided to open a restaurant that focuses on fine food and an intimate atmosphere. The main floor dining room seats about 24 at table that can be arranged for couples, 4's or 6's. On a busy summer night the lower floor can accommodate the overflow...but ask to be seated upstairs if possible. My wife and I have dined there often enough over the years that, when the "chef'ing" is done Vasilio will come out and chat with us about his latest trip to visit family in Greece and other interesting bits.
