Excellent evening dining in a pleasant formal atmosphere. Food is medium to high priced, but deliscious and well worth it. Service is excellent, friendly, and accomodating.

This is the most upscale, white table cloth restaurant in Medfield, and food and service were very good. Our party of four had the haddock and the swordfish, both of which were well prepared, and the salads were good. We also enjoyed the fact that...More

Service was friendly and attentive, adjusting to some of my unique requests. The food was absolutely fabulous. The clams zuppa featured a mildly spicy tomato based broth with other bits of veggies and some garlic. Not overpowering. My entree special -- haddock and shrimp provencal...More

The large homemade butternut squash ravioli with a brown sugar and butter sauce is mouthwatering and to die for. The spicy sausage and chicken over a bed of gemelli pasta with a fontina cream sauce does not dissapoint either. Highly recommend!

Food is excellent, atmosphere is also very nice. I would have rated a five but the server was very unfriendly.

The Marsala was wonderful and just couldn't be better. Homemade breads were scrumptious. Service was very good and attentive. It can get busy but worth the wait. This place is off the beaten track in a local neighborhood so if your from out of town...More

There was literally no wait and we were seated right away. The menu is Italian and their food was very delicious. The wait staff were very experienced, fast and pleasant so what more could one possibly want (well for free would have been nice!)

We were here for a christening and many members in our party have food allergies. If I remember correctly, they have gluten free options. However, I would call ahead, just in case.

Basil is a warm neighborhood restaurant serving American cuisine with an Italian soul. Chef and owner Tom McGue changes the menu seasonally and offers nightly specials that reflect the best of what is fresh each day. The main dining room is a quiet, comfortable place to enjoy a fine meal with friends and family. And the pub offers a more relaxed setting and a casual menu. Basil also has an upstairs room that can be reserved for private parties and functions. We would also be happy to cater events in your home or at other locations.
