These dishes taste authentic and more home-cooked than any other Italian location in F'burg. And the desserts are awesome - although typically we are too full to order any. It isn't fancy, but the food quality is the reason we go.

Excellent food. Amazing dessert display. I had the new yorker piled with plenty of corned beef. My companion had the rustica pizza.Only downside is not enough seating.

What a gem. At first glance this little strip mall restaurant looks like a limited menu cafe. Upon further inspection (grab a menu), Basilico has a wonderfully large menu with pastas, soups, sandwiches, pizzas and more. In addition, they have an enormous pastry selection and...More

Thanks to the recommendations of other TripAdvisor raters, we went to Basilico after an information session for prospective students at the University of Mary Washington. Just a 3 minute drive away, in a shopping center. This restaurant deserves the rave reviews it has gotten. Four...More

They are pretty accommodating, I alter the items on the menu all the time. It's a great place to go to eat and get take out, think it's worth a call to see how they could help you. I've never looked for anything gluten free... More
