Amazing food and service!
Best meal ever! Table decorated in foil hearts and rose petals! Excellent 4 course dinner beginning with Kir Royale cocktail and topped off with a dessert sampler and expresso martini! Felt like we were on a cruise ship! Wishful thinking!
Basile is the kind of restaurant you think is going to be nice, and then it’s kind of tacky. Food was solid - we came for the Valentine’s Day prefix and had no issues with the food (It was definitely a lot of food too) But service staff was unorganized and poorly trained. We had an early dinner slot and they didn’t even look like they were open or ready for service. They shouldn’t have offered our slot as a seating if it was going to look like that. Just kind of a let down honestly.
Very good fine dining restaurant. Service was great, food was delicious. Menu has a lot of different options. Great place for a special occasion or date night.
We had a perfect night. Great food, great wine and great service!
Dinner was delicious but I dont Recommend going with a very empty stomach. The bang for your buck is nonexistent but for the food we did have, it was delish. I went For my birthday and got a free creme brûlée which was very good
They decorated the table for my girlfriends birthday, which was greatly appreciated. The food was amazing and our server was top notch. Couldn’t have asked for a better night
the food is so good. and the service??? outstanding. it’s one of Boston’s hidden gems
Great food great service great atmosphere
The restaurant advertises gluten free however no GF bread available... The pasta at 30$ do not look or taste homemade. The gnocchi GF are a shame for Italian people. The crabmeat ravioli are definitely industrial and the shrimps are not fresh.
For the price it is not worth it. The glass of wine at 12$ is scientifically measured and ends up being half a glass. It gives a cheap image.
The food was remarkable. One of the best meals I’ve ever had. Dishes were complex, presented beautifully, and simply delicious.
The server rushed me and seemed out of sorts. She was the only bad part of the experience. It doesn’t take much to be genuinely friendly.
The tiramisu, by the way, was the best I’ve ever had. Don’t leave without having it.
Basile was fantastic from the service to the food. If you want to try something different, I would suggest the 5 Course Chef's choice meal. It was a perfect amount of food.
Great for anniversaries and birthdays
Excellent food. I really enjoyed the pasta and I would recommend the Veal Chop.
Superb cuisine in a relaxing environment; staff all very attentive; look forward to returning in order to explore the rest of the menu!
We had a wonderful New Years Eve dinner. The owner took great care of us and accommodated our kids as well. I will definitely be back!
Amazing, top to bottom. Went for xmas, loved it so much went back for New Years
We went to Basil,s on New Year’s Eve. It was a fixed menu and it was excellent.
Excellent Christmas eve dinner. Very gracious staff and quiet evening. Great dessert plate
Beautiful, classy, elegant, European décor. Our first impression coming in was "Wow, let's come back here a lot!" Some mistakes with the food, slow inattentive service. Our last impression was "Maybe we'll come back sometime."
Excellent food, great wine list and wonderful ambiance. Highly recommend.
We went for our anniversary, they left real rose petals on the table upon our arrival and a free dessert to celebrate. The staff was incredibly helpful and worked as a team. The food is delightful the environment is romantic and unbeatable. I have never felt so pleased at a dining experience. Highly recommend for couples and families.
The 3 course meal is absolutely amazing treat.
The drinks are good as well.
Perfect ambience for a romantic date or special occasion.
Exceeded expectations. Carbonara was the best I have ever had. App sampler is a wonderful tasting delight. Cheers!
I would encourage anyone who wants a great dinner to try this restaurant. The food was great as was the service. The staff couldn't have been nicer. There was plenty of room between tables and we both felt very comfortable. Would return in the future.
Excellent dishes, great service and very charming place. We can’t wait to go back and try more!
Tried the pre-fixe Thanksgiving dinner and we were very impressed with the food, ambiance and service, especially on a holiday during unprecedented times. Felt safe with the set-up of the restaurant and truly appreciated the staff’s helpfulness. We will be back again I’m sure, thank you for being there!
I had an amazing Thanksgiving dinner here with a friend. The service and food are both outstanding.
Went for an anniversary dinner. Very accommodating and great atmosphere. Will definitely come back!
It was absolutely amazing. Food is delicious!
Atmosphere is nice and cozy.
I love to come back!
We choose the 3 course Sampler Special. Antipasti sampler had four appetizers. We selected three different pastas for Pastas Sampler and the best was the dessert platter. Our server suggested the Wine Flight (sampler) to go with the dinner. It was simply great. We have never seen such unique concept of sampler dinner. Got to try different variety of appetizers, pastas, desserts and wines. Very smart and creative. Loved it. We will be back for more.
Lovely restaurant specially for outdoor patio dinner. It was a warm day in Boston and had a good Italian dinner with great cocktails. If you like a unique and authentic Italian experience than go to Basile or go to usual corporate owned boring restaurants. We will be back.
We had a nice quiet dinner on the patio on a weeknight. The restaurant is located in a quieter part of downtown Boston on Columbus Street. The service was professional and the food was very good. The cocktails were pretty good also.
Service was very good. We started with the calsmari and can understand why it's a cutomer fsboritr and popular with cutomers, as noted on their menu. my husbnd had the chivken parm which wan't anything speial. my chiken piccatta was very good. th dessert sampler was ec=xcelent,It had the chocolate souffle which was amazing and a really yummr apple pastry. Highly recommend the desserts! We sat oustide and it was verypleasznt. Tabkes were comfotably spaced aprt and the restsursnt was observing vovid guielines (9masks, gloves etc) Overall solid experience.
Will definitely be going back. The food was delicious, the drinks were amazing and the service was outstanding.
Excellent food and service. Staff was very attentive but not intrusive. Highly recommended
We tried the 5 course tasting selection.
Amazing food! Great staff. Friendly service!
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
