It's okay. But nice gathering friends and relatives for lunch. Clean place. Servers were good. Only problem that is the restrooms is only for 2 (1 toilet each) even there were many tenants in the same building to shares these 2 toilets (1 man and 1 woman rooms). Waiting lines up to be the next turn. I would not be... More

Held a birthday party in one of the private rooms. About twenty people and every one of them loved their meals! The owner and his staff are so very accommodating. You will definitely not be disappointed whether visiting as a couple or in a group. Special Note: This venue specializes in Italian fare and their seafood is outstanding. Be sure... More

This will be short and sweet. Great Italian food, great service. Get your butt over there. They make their own sausage and it is excellent. We had a family style meal and everyone loved it. Very reasonable prices.

I have had many dishes here and loved them all. The 8 finger cavatelli is by far my favorite! It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food is great and so is the wait staff!

Basilico Ristorante is located on Cumberland Ave., just south of Lawrence Ave. It is in a small strip mall where there is plenty of parking. The restaurant was decorated nicely for the Christmas holidays. It was not too busy, so we were seated quickly. Our busboy brought warm bread to the table which you can't pass up. We ordered two...

I am going to start by listing the positives: - A large, free parking lot - we were seated promptly - a lovely private room which is available - wheelchair accessible - they have roundtables for some - arches which are outlined with white lights. But is that a big stop light glowing at the end of one of the... More

This area is full of new, large hotels, outlet stores, and chain restaurants. Basilico is a small restaurant that has been here for many years (at least 40??) and offers fantastic freshly made Italian food. Their hot spinach salad was out of this world. They make a great vodka sauce, and the eggplant rolls were unbelievably good. I have high... More

Everything is made fresh to order. Never disappointed. One waiter even played guitar and sang to my daughter. Then on our next visit told me he learned a new song she had asked him to sing just for her. Such a cool joint.
