and have been individually prepared and executed to perfection by the same trio of chefs for over three decades. The platters are delectable, being prepared daily from only fresh, high quality ingredients, served in enormous portions, and complimented by an extensive selection of fine wines. Prices are extremely reasonable and the service is outstanding.
The main dining room is decorated with old world ambiance providing a comfortable, casual feel for families and business groups and a romantic, private setting for couples. The entire ceiling is comprised of individual, hand painted canvases from various local artists from Spain and Italy and is sure to be a topic of conversation.
Basilico never disappoints. (Try the light-as-air gnocchi appetizer; it's terrific. )
The gold standard. Great food, attentive service easy parking what’s not to like
Great service. Great food!! Very underrated in Chicago area.
We had never been to this restaurant - found it on a search. We dined with another couple. The lighting was on the darker side which was ok, Service was great - food was great. We would definitely go there again.
Great food. Comfortable place. Will be back!
Waiters are friendly, food is reasonably priced and the chocolate lava cake is delicious!
Great food and good value
Food was good, ambiance it kitschy and dated. I suspect they serve an older clientele.
Always a great experience.
We have eaten at Basilico Ristorante many times over the years. Without a doubt, the food and the service was Excellent, as usual. I had the veal; it was fresh and tasty, it came with a side of pasta, which also was fantastic. My wife had the Risotto, and she loved it... cooked just right. The prices are all well within reason for the area. I would gladly recommend this restaurant to friends, family and everyone.
The food was excellent. The restaurant allows substitutions--in my case, spinach for pasta. In addition, the portions are ample. Both my dinner companion and I took home leftovers. Finally, the restaurant added a free tiramisu because we were celebrating a birthday. That was a nice touch!
Been going to Basilico for years… It was my birthday and our waitress, Majia, was wonderful! Very very special birthday, and the food was spectacular, as always! My very favorite restaurant! Thank you for making my day exceptional!
Outstanding food and service a gem.
We enjoyed our first time at Basilico. It had a very friendly neighborhood feel to it.
Always an excellent meal with prompt, friendly service.
Best Italian food around for consistency. Always fresh food the eggplant parmesan is to die for.
Superb food. We both had the specials. One was Sea Bass and the other was Chicken Tetrazzini. Both were excellent. Our server was foreign and young. She was just ok. We have had the more senior server many times and she is so kind and on the ball. It won’t keep us from coming back though.
As always food was excellent. Great cocktails
Service was wonderful ....a favorite restaurant
We love the "strip mall Italian place." That's what my kids call it. The food is OUTSTANDING. My kids (10, 13) can't get enough of the gnocchi with vodka sauce. I'm partial to the eggplant rolotini and this past time my husband cleaned his plate of the chicken vesuvio. I appreciate you get a soup or salad WITH your entree! It's definitely out go-to when craving Italian!
The two of us had dinner here. When we first got there the restaurant was one third full. As it filled up the noise was really loud. We had trouble hearing across the table. The wait staff was good. The food was pretty good, but certainly not the best. I would recommend it if you can stand the noise.
We have been eating at Basilico for years - It's our go to neighborhood spot. As always, the service and the food were great! Will be dining here for years to come!
Spectacular, service, great food what more do you need ? Wonderful
Great service. Great atmosphere. This is the old school Italian joint you’ve been dying to become a regular at!
As always we were extremely pleased with the food and service
This is one of my favorite restaurants
Love going back there
Service was a little slow and noise level higher than expected. Menu has a great selection and food very good. Recommended for good Italian food.
Wonderful food. Neighborhood atmosphere with excellent service.
Basilico is one of our favorite restaurants. Food is always good and the staff are very friendly.
Rave reviews on portion size and quality of food. All sales team members really enjoyed Basilico.
We decided to go to dinner with my brother in law and his wife who have never been to Basilico. As always, the staff was awesome, and they enjoyed the food and the all around experience.

Wonderful place great food and even better service .
Thank you to all the staff for a wonderful family party and delicious food!
We looked for a good restaurant for dinner before a show at the Rosemont Theater. This place was perfect only 5 minutes away. The reviews read were right on. Great atmosphere, friendly people, great service. The food was perfect. Met the owner and had a great conversation. Wife Italian so they got along very well. Prices were very reasonable compared to the local restaurant around the theater. You cant go wrong with this place. Definitely a place to go to...and we well.
Hidden gem in a strip mall. One of the best gravies I have had. Staff is very attentive without being overbearing. Owner is very involved and it shows in the quality of the food and service.
A great little Italian restaurant tucked away where all the locals go regularly and the know their customers. Food was great only dampen by slightly below grade service.
Very friendly atmosphere. Service is excellent
Heard it was good... not so much.
We visited Basilico Ristorante recently and the food was excellent, the service was great. Marsha was very nice and explained everything thoroughly. Highly recommended!
As always the food and service is excellent
A favorite restaurant
