    We always loved the restaurant when it was Basil's, but now we love it even more. It's a little noisy, it was tolerable and the service was a little slow, but we were in no hurry. We had the salad special and rice balls for starters and both were outstanding. For dinner, the potato pizza, vegetarian pizza and the Sunday gravy. All were delicious. Desserts were good too. The chocolate pudding with hazelnuts and caramel was really nice, as was the pistachio gelato. We also had the biscotti, which were a little dry, but the nicely flavored cannoli cream helped. Even the coffee was great. We've already made another reservation to go back!

    The food and service were excellent but the noise level was ridiculous hard to hold any type of conversation. Our server had to repeat everything she said at both ends of the table. They should look into finding a way to keep the noise from bouncing off the ceiling. Otherwise I woul have given five stars.

    Overall wonderful experience from the moment we entered to the food, service. The new look is great. I like it better over Basil T. Fried olives, bolonaise and flat bread excellent. We'll be back

    Our sever Alex was outstanding. She had great eye contact and talked up the specials, one of which we ordered. The sauce with rigatoni, sausage, and meatball. Wow! It was great. My wife had the salmon and our 10yr old son had the chicken parm. ALL of our plates were clean ! Would come back at the next chance !

    This restaurant was just updated. It looks much more current now with a more open and energetic vibe. The food is outstanding . You can get reasonable bottles of wine and great food! Eat anything from a salad to a hearty meal. Great pizza, meatballs, fish, pasta. One of my favorite restaurants.

    The renewed space looks. They opened up the main dining area very nicely. However, the remodeling also seemed to apply to the food. The prices remained the same, if not higher yet the portions seem t have gotten smaller. The prices are not worth the trip. And, the place is as loud as it ever was. Would be suitable enough for 1st time people, but for us who frequented the old Basil T's, it was disappointing.

    The excellent food is completely overshadowed by the poor dining experience caused by excessive noise. The acoustics of the dining room make it impossible to hold a conversation, and we all left with a headache. I might order food to go, but will not return to sit in the dining room. The bar was actually quieter, and that is not saying much!

    Visited on Saturday, first weekend opened. Service was excellent. Food was excellent. A little noisy inside, not much to absorb the sound. Very pleased and definitely recommended.

    Food was excellent, Main dish is not that much so you have to order sides if your hungry. The pork saltimbocca as excellent! The new room is very noisy. they need to tone that down as it was hard to have a conversation.

    The menu is great and the food terrific. They have kept the prices reasonable by not serving huge meals that you end up taking half of it home. Yet the portions are sufficient to satisfy you.
