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.
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.
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.
