On my visit I had a sandwich and a salad. Both tasted extremely fresh. The salad, in particular, had wonderfully fresh vegetables. I've been to very nice restaurants whose salads didn't seem nearly as fresh as they should be. I liked this place a lot.

This restaurant is a jewel. Not only do they offer great sandwiches and tasty pasta options, but they meet gluten-free customer needs very well. Their dessert selections are among the best in the state. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Great food cooked fresh. Good service. Love the 1/2 salad and 1/2 soup. The turkey cranberry panini is awesome.

The gelato is amazing. The pizza and sandwiches are really good too. You really can't go wrong with anything here.

Pastries are top notch considering the location. We ate dinner and lunch here in November 2016. Food was great considering the low price. We had a few vegetarian dishes that were great. Pizza is wonderful. This isn't Alfonso's of Staten Island NY but they get a great review for what they do have.

Although I wouldn't say its perfect, this is one of our favorite lunch spots in Fredericksburg. The menu has many options and the sandwiches/Italian wraps are always spot on. They have a widespread of desserts, soups, salads and pasta dishes. The pasta dishes are average so if you want traditional Baked Ziti or Lasagna then don't expect to be blown... More

Basilico is located in a shopping center behind Mary Washington Hospital--an unsuspecting place for such a surprisingly delicious restaurant! I have been here several times, and each time I am more delighted with the food and service. I especially enjoy their brick oven pizzas and baked ziti. The eggplant parmesan is also one to try. Their selection of desserts is... More

We chose this establishment because of the ratings/reviews and we were not disappointed! Ruben panini with Tuscan pasta salad side and the New Yorker with mac'n cheese were amazing. We have found a new spot for lunch or carry out. We stopped by at 4pm on Saturday and there was no crowd. Very fast and impeccable service. Do yourself a... More

This restaurant has held the top spot in Fredericksburg for some time now, and it's earned it. The food is always quality, and they have a nice menu of pizzas and sandwiches to choose from. The food quality compares to that of New York. The dessert selection is absurd. They have so many delicious homemade cakes that it's hard to... More
