There are so many Italian restaurants in the Rochester area. Everything from upscale to family run places. Bazil's is right on Empire Blvd overlooking the bay. We sat outside & enjoyed a pleasant summer early evening meal. Salads were fairly standard-nothing exciting but they were fresh tasting. Pastas were cooked mostly al dente, but the sauce with my chicken French... More

We went to brunch this past Sunday. We had reservations and were seated promptly. Our server was named Nickolas and he explained the buffet set up. The buffet was good but does not compare to the one that Marios had. But for the price it is a good value. Nickolas did a nice job.

Portions are very generous and flavourful. Wait staff always friendly and helpful. Build your own pasta dishes always a favourite and in the colder months the unlimited soup and salad are a good bet. The setting is quite pretty, especially at the end of a summer day, with both indoor and outdoor seating.

This place is very nice. The food is great and not expensive. Quality. The staff is very good and very polite. We had to wait 45 minutes, but we went to the bar to take a drink. This place is good for romantic supper as well. Big parking

We used to dine at Bazil's very regularly but had not been there in about 6 months after menu changes. We tried it last night after receiving a certificate for bottle of wine to celebrate our anniversary. First, we were told we couldn't get the wine and also get their daily special dish. Not sure what connection those two events... More

Bazil's treated my dad to dinner after my sister called and explained that he was recovering from cancer treatment and hadn't been able to eat solid food for nearly a year. He mentioned a craving for one of their dishes and when my sister called she asked if she could just get a 1/2 or 1/4 order as he wouldn't... More

My family shared dinner at Bazil's last week. We had a wonderful dinner with such a variety of choices. Our party consisted of my sister, Patricia and her 3 grandsons, my son Jade, my companion and me. We each tried something new and different. We were all happy and satisfied. We watched the sunset on the bay and retired for... More
