    The setting of the restaurant was nice, especially beyond the facade. We decided to dine outside as it was a lovely day. Unfortunately it took almost 50 minutes until we got our food. Even worse the short ribs were too salty, the Calamari were OK. Over all we would probably try something else instead the next time.

    Every thing we ordered was consistently excellent. The special menu was a bit pricey but food was delicious. Octopus appy, black truffle special Italy selection, and stuffed chicken breast.

    Excellent menu. Entrees were all well prepared, tasty and service was prompt and efficient. Kinda noisy, but it was father's day and the place was full of happy people.

    We had roasted baby artichokes, tuna tartare, octopus salad and a crabmeat shrimp salad. All were delicious. Service was good. Recommend it.

    Food and portions were generally good. I don’t like that they charge a 3% surcharge for using a debit card, which is against the law.

    I had a lobster salad special, shrimp, corn, mango, avocado, it was delicious. My entree was a fettuccine with lobster, shrimp and scallops, also delicious, leftovers for lunch heated up nicely. My husband had blue point oysters, he swears they are better at Basilico than anywhere else. He had the pork chop special with a balsamic sauce, roasted potatoes and broccoli rabe. For dessert we had pistachio soufflé, and a Nutella crepe with fresh strawberry sauce. The desserts were incredible. Donna is a wonderful pastry chef. The food and service are always so good. Everything is very fresh and the portions are generous. Congratulations to Mario and his staff for 25 years of deliciousness.
