the service was so bad, we were never checked on. We asked multiple times for water and never got it. When sides were asked to be substituted, they just weren’t and then were going to give it after we were done eating. There were so many people waiting on our table that the miscommunication between the staff hindered on my experience.
Amazing food. Service was great. Very clean and professional staff. Would recommend for other people to definitely try this spot
The wait staff was super attentive and the food was delicious.
The staff was excellent, attentive. Our drinks were delicious. One espresso martini and 2 lemonchello Margaritas. Delish. We enjoyed everything except the meatballs. They were like hard golfballs. We would definitely come back. Their red pepper dipping sauce was delicious.
everything was great. the food was incredible and the service even better. first time here and we will definitely be back!
Great overall experience. Thank you for having vegetarian options
Exceptional dining experience! Great dinner, dessert and wine! Also superior customer service! Highly recommended.
Food was amazing. Service was great.
Very nice Italian restaurant. Unlike some of the corporate restaurants in the area, BASILE is boutique and has great authentic Italian food. We will be back !!
Drinks were downright lousy. Food is hit or miss - the watermelon salad and Indian fusion ravioli were forgettable, but the lamb chops were quite good. Service was friendly but very slow. I only saw one waitress taking care of several tables, which is unfortunate to see.
Excellent service and choices of wines
Went for our anniversary and had a fabulous meal. Service was great, dining room not noisy and food and cocktails fantastic. Would highly recommend BASILE!!!
The food was sub par the service was excellent and the location, look and sound are fantastic .
We ordered the Chef tasting and really enjoyed our experience. Food was customized tour taste and preference. We couldn't finish the five course dinner and ended up taking some food home. Food and service were excellent. Will be back for more!!
Great restaurant in Boston for authentic Italian dinner with good selection of Tuscan wines!!
I am Italian and I loved the food at Basile. Some of the sauces have that authentic Italian flavors. Basile is now my favorite in Boston for Italian food.
While in Boston for our anniversary we decided to treat ourselves to a nice dinner. Basile did not disappoint. Staff was super friendly and well organized. Food was exceptional. Only complaint would be it was very warm, but we would absolutely go back.
Celebrating a birthday, we opted to get the tasting menu for two. Although the waiters/waitresses were very nice, neither of them could tell us what we were being served. We shouldn’t have had to ask to begin with, but even when we did ask, the answers were very vague. The final entree course (whatever it was) was not very good, but everything else was delicious so four stars on the food.
Great restaurant. From freshly baked bread to start with to freshly baked dessert, the dinner experience was simply fabulous !!! Service and ambiance was great too. Loved it.
Spacious interior with attractive wood architectural details, vaulting ceilings, handsomely appointed. Service was efficient and respectful of Covid protocols. Dined here with a party of four. We enjoyed a variety of starters followed by pasta in a deliciously rich bolognese sauce, and two others pasta dishes; respectively, lobster and a medley of seafood, both tossed in a light cream sauce. Certainly worthy of a return visit.
Boutique Italian restaurant with European touch. Great food and service. More importantly, we felt safe as they were very clean and looked in compliance with COVID protocols. Staff appeared well trained in safety standards. Overall, great experience !!
Food and service very good for our table of four. we sat inside and felt safe.
First I will say the food and drinks were great. Our server was bad and that is an understatement. We were out for our anniversary so not in a rush, ordered an app and were enjoying drinks until they were empty and waitress kept walking by purposely looking away as she passed our table. This went on and on. The waitress took our order and that’s about it. The runners did all the work.
The manager tried his best to make up for her shortfalls but a glass of wine on the house doesn’t make up for her terrible service. I didn’t catch her name cuz she only came to the table a handful of times.
The manager certainly acknowledged her faults. Hopefully she can work on her customer service skills.
Food was amazing rivals north end and the staff amazing
Great restaurant for Italian food. We had lamb chops. Must try!
Very nice restaurant. Only placein Boston with Wine flights and Pasta sampler that we know. We will be back!
Fantastic anniversary dinner complete with dessert on the house. Perfect.
Had a wonderful experience, service was excellent the food Fantastic
We went for the Chef Tasting at BASILE. Absolutely delicious five course dinner. Each course was customized for our taste and preference. Best experience we had in Boston.
Great selection of Pasta dishes and Wines. BASILE signature wine - Ad Agio is a great super Tuscan wine. One of the best Italian restaurants in BOSTON.
Basile is a boutique Italian restaurant. Must try. Great food, ambiance & service. Highly recommended!
We ordered the chefs tasting and the servers did not know what any of the courses were. We asked three different people and they had no idea. We were also disappointed that the fish course was cod. (Kinda basic) Also, the dessert was late and took 20 minutes to come out and when it did, the server had no idea what any of the desserts were either. There was what looked like a chocolate cake on the plate in a ceramic cup that was so hot that we felt we should have been warned not to touch it. We nearly burned our hands.
Overall, I think the manager should make sure that the staff knows what the dishes are before they bring them to a guest.
We ordered the special 'Surf&Turf'. Absolutely delicious !! Great food and wine list. Staff was very friendly. We will be back.
Great restaurant. Our favourite Masala Ravioli is the best.
Best patio in Boston for safe outdoor dinner. Hidden gem !!!
Boutique restaurant with the best Italian food in Boston. I personally don't like big corporate restaurants, where authenticity is lost. Glad to discover BASILE with authentic and tasty Italian dishes coupled with good service and wine selection.
Loved our dinner experience at BASILE. Best authentic Italian dishes in the Boston area. Will return soon.
Everything is absolutely delicious here! I feel like it is a hidden gem that people don't know about but should! I have never had a bad meal. The bolognese is spectacular! I also Love the Indian fusion Ravioli! So many goodies on the menu. Fantastic wine and cocktails as well.
Beautiful and cozy restaurant. All the COVID protections were in place. Food was amazing. Wine flight was new to us. We ordered 2 wine flights and got 8 different types of wines. Good food and service. Highly recommended.
