After sitting in traffic for two hours, my wife and I were hungry, and looking for a place to eat. The reviews for this place were very good so we decided to try it out. We stopped in at around 7:30. The building is old as advertised. We found the outside and inside appeared to have and unclean feel to... More

The Long Island duck with fig reduction was beyond compare. The ambience is old school high end Italian. This place is one of the few places that actually reminds me of ristorantes in Europe

When my wife and I returned from Italy many years ago, we were a bit depressed and looking for a good Italian restaurant to dine in. We found the perfect place. It had charm, it had Italian speaking staff and it had great Italian food. We felt like we back at the Piazza Navona in Rome, one of our favorite... More

Every single one of us thoroughly enjoy their dish. Pasta/seafood dishes, ravioli specials, gnocchi with seafood, risotto with seafood, veal Marsala... More

We came in without a reservation on a Friday night about 7:30pm. It was about a 15 minute wait and well worth it. Everyone was extremely nice, very friendly. Our meal was delicious, very flavorful; half orders are available on most dishes. We had bread along with the meal that was homemade. Also, we ordered dessert, wonderful. The dining experience...

Yesterday, we celebrated my niece receiving her Masters Degree and Basilio's provided the perfect backdrop for our large party to enjoy ourselves. We started with a bottle of Prosecco for a toast, followed by one of every appetizer on the menu:Mussels;Fresh Mozzarella... More

We have been coming here for a few years, and love the place. The food is very, very good. Seafood is always fresh, the portions are sizeable, and the service is very good. It can get crowded, and is defintely a place for birthday and communion celebrations. It has a small parking area, but so far, have had no problem... More

Good food, home made Italian. A bit loud when all the tables are filled and a bit outdated interior, but worth a visit!
