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 is a hidden gem! The food and service were excellent. The decor needs a little updating, but it has a charm that I truly enjoyed. We will definitely be back!
Great service and great food every time
Great ambiance, very friendly and attentive staff. The food was exceptional, best Italian food in a predominately Italian neighborhood. I can’t wait to go back!
Food was good
Service not so good
They were short staffed
We sat in the banquet room
You wouldnt think of it as a good Italian restaurant from the outside but Food was very good and we plan on going back soon. Good quality food at reasonable prices, staff was attentive, everything you want in a good meal
Food was great everything was perfect. Nice hidden gem
Food was great. Service was great. We’ll come back again.
The main dishes were all extremely delicious. The salmon was fresh. The chicken was tender and flavorful, and really good portions for the price too.The minestrone soup was sub par, however, as were side vegetables. The soup tasted like vegetable soup from a can and had no flavor. The vegetables were just steamed with no seasonings. The bread was good, but hard. The service was extremely good. The atmosphere was lovely and comfortable and a perfect place to entertain out of town friends.
Basilico Restaurante provides good, traditional Southern Italian food along with excellent service. It is the type of local spot that even tourist or business people from O'Hare manage to discover.
As always, Basilico was outstanding—great food and amazing service. My friend and I both chose one of the specials—chicken scallopini. So good! And we both brought home leftovers. Basilico’s portions are generous.
This is a really great restaurant! Check it out!
This is a neighborhood treasure! Great, authentic Italian food, friendly service and real old school Italian neighborhood ambiance! Just good and fun!!
Always outstanding food quality and service. Been this way for years!! Can’t go wrong here!!
Great service, good food, accommodated guests needing to depart early with separate checks. Definitely will return. Easy free parking as well.
Nice little place! The interior is a little dated! Very good food! I had Veal Piccante, it’s my go to when trying a restaurant for the first time! It was good veal and pounded slightly . Very tender. We also had the antipasti, it was a good starter for conversation!
As always the food was outstanding and the service was excellent

New Years Eve very busy and still excellent service and food
A favorite place to go for dinner or lunch
New Years Eve dinner - great menu for this occasion. Loved the atmosphere and the food was amazing.
I was very impressed with Basilico and I had Chicken Marsala. It was delicious!. I would return again for a future visit and it is not far from ORD either.
Beautiful place with great food and excellent service.
Everything was overcooked and seemed like it was pre cooked?
Stuffed artichoke soaked bread crumbs & artichoke mash.
Outstanding food. Accommodated a large party. The atmosphere was great. Did not feel rushed.
Food as good as ever. Great service. Always my go to place for Italian cuisine.
Needs remodeling badly though. Has looked the same as my first visit in the eighties .
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.
Basilico’s always delivers. A hidden gem near Rosemont. We hold business dinners here every year for the past 20 years at the PLMA Show. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
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.
