The menu is pretty easy to navigate, and well written. The assortment of salads are likely to please just about any palate. The salads are large enough to serve as a very light entree. The pasta portions are generous as well, so if you want to keep it easy and reasonably health, get a salad and split a pasta. You... More

I have been here twice and the food is great. I need to go back more often. They are very good as well with customer service. This place always seems to have a crowd so make reservations ahead.

Good place for the Millburn. It's fairly reliable and has a nice patio in the back. Food is good....I wouldn't say it's amazing, but it's a solid local place. Nice for couples to meet up.

Was at this restaurant with a party of 13. Each had a variety of dishes and all thought they were fantastic. I had the Halibut which was spectacular. The desserts were also thought exceptional by all. The waiting staff was attentive, filling water glasses and wine glasses (you can BYO). In all a fantastic dining experience.

Caprese salad appetizer - I think they had just pulled the mozzarella fresh from the bath - wonderful beginning!! Around the table: short ribs, salmon and the fish dinner special - everything was fantastic!! Dessert was okay, I can't recommend the tiramisu which was not traditional and not good. My colleague had a berry cobbler that looked great and he... More

I have been dining at Basilico for years & years. It is a great "during the week restaurant" that you can always grab a good meal. The food is consistently high quality. What many people don't remember is that they have a really great lunch menu. I have the Salad Nicoise with Seared Tuna (NOT CANNED). Love it. I order... More
