Both are graduates of the Hotel Management School in Alassio, Italy. Both from Italy, they have brought their original and authentic Italian cuisine to Millburn.

We usually go to Basilio for dinner on Saturday nights: Today we decided to try their lunch menu. It was a very nice menu and the food was very fresh and delicious.
This is a very nice restaurant whether you are having lunch or dinner. Basilica is one of my favorite restaurant.

Amazing food. Fantastic service. Odd seating. They seemed to squeeze everyone together in one area while the rest of the restaurant was empty. Would have liked a little more space.

The different dinner selections of the four of us were universally praised as excellent. The desserts were truly exceptional.......again, we all agreed. The attentiveness and courtesy of the servers was unusually good and sincerely appreciated. Best dining experience I can remember.

Everything was great. The artichoke app was very good. I had veal with asparagus in brandy cream sauce which was great; rich and tender. The extensive dessert menu makes this place a real find. Everything I tasted was very good, but my favorite was my chocolate souffle.

Starters:
1) Arancini - Rice Balls - lightly fried, and tasty.
2) Carciofini alla Piastra - grilled artichokes - solid choice; nicely grilled and simple seasoning makes for a refreshing start to the meal.
3) Burrata con Condiglione - mozzarella and tomatoes - very creamy and delicious.

Entrees:
1) Orata alla Mediterranea - filet of bass - good
2) Anatra Arrosto - Duck - good

Sides:
1) Gnoochi with Vodka Sauce - excellent

Desserts:
1) Budino - Chocolate Pudding with Graham Crackers - very chocolately and rich; definitely share this with someone.
2) Torta Calda al Cioccolato - chocolate lava cake; standard for most restaurants.

Overall the food was very good.
Place is small and crowded during prime time; you can literally have a conversation with the table next to you because your tables are practically touching.
Service is rushed; it's a popular place, so they want your order in quick.

This is our third time at Basilico. It’s our go to spot for dinner before a show at the Paper Mill Playhouse. There are always interesting specials and everything we’ve had here was delicious. The service is attentive and friendly. We’ll definitely be back!

We enjoyed the small plates we ordered, especially the cauliflower, the garlic shrimp and the meatball. But everything was excellent and the portions were quite ample. We shared a half bottle of red wine which was very good. Our only complaint was a rather loud group nearby. And the parking situation is always an issue in Millburn.

A great place to dine for any occasion, or for no other reason than to just enjoy a totally delicious meal, enhanced by wonderful service.
That's why we dine here more often than any of the other seven restaurants we also dine at regularly.

Took my wife here for her 65th birthday long with my daughter, son-in law and 1/2 old granddaughter. Couldn't have been happier ! Food was excellent, nice size portions, excellent service and was not rushed. A romantic restaurant who caters to children and making everyone feel comfortable.

Service was good, although they kept I wanting to take my plate and I was not done. Bit annoying.

We all liked the many options on the menu. All food was nicely prepared and tasteful. Service happened to be impeccable as waiter - Raoul, would always look over and see if we needed anything without us having to ask.
