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.
Been going there for years… It was my birthday and our waitress, Majia, was wonderful! Very very special birthday, and the food was spectacular as always! The very favorite restaurant
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
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.
Very pleasant. Good food, nice service. Ambience was nice.
Birthday celebration. JoJo did an excellent job. Food was good, as always.
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
One of the worst experiences I’ve had at a restaurant. The food was terrible and flavorless and the servers were not attentive. Was embarrassing to take family here. Decor is old and creepy
We really like this Restaurant, family owned and they make you feel very welcome. The food is really good, authentic Italian, and if you would like something that is not on the menu they will prepare it for you. The baked rigatoni with meat sauce was great as was the chicken parmesan. Making this Restaurant a place to dine at least monthly!
We were greeted at the door with smiling faces. The Menu is extensive, except a little low on appetizer choices. All the food we excellent. The waiter was knowledgeable of the menu and the various items. Prices were reasonable. Will return.
Have been going to Basilico for years. It is one of my favorite Italian restaurants - great food, great service and very reasonable pricing. For the first time, I was disappointed. Ordered the chicken special Saturday night. Chicken was dry and had no flavor. It was supposed to be served over linguini. Instead, I was served a side of penne marinara. My wife ordered salmon over linguini and was also disappointed. I will return for another meal hoping this was just a one time mistake.
Nice meal, odd but pleasant decor. Comfortable, clean dining room.
Excellent as always! Good food, good, friendly service. Very generous portions.
As always food is excellent
Great martinis awesome service
Price is great
Food was outstanding as were the menu options. Cavatelli with vodka sauce was best ever! Service was just so so and in fact our server disappeared for quite a while and never checked in with us after our food arrived. We ended up not getting dessert because had to get a friend to her flight, even though we did have time and desire, disappointing.
This place is great. We try and eat there whenever we come to Chicagoland to visit friends.
I eat out fir a change in routine. I despise having a televion on in restaurant dining room.
Restaurant was about 1/3 full. Was seated at a table immediately. Basket of bread was brought out to the table & never received any service afterwards. Left establishment after 20 minutes.
The salmon was listed as being served in a white wine sauce but the sauce had the consistency of jelly. It tasted ok but I knew it didn’t look right.
