Luke was so friendly and so was our waitress Kayla. They made our night and we probably stayed longer because of them! We’ll definitely be back. It’s nice to have friendly and fabulous service on top of great food. Thank you for a wonderful evening out!

This was our first visit. The Hostess was so kind and seated us quickly. The waiter was good and attentive. The food was very good. The only thing was we had ordered saganaki and never received it. May have not been heard through the masks. Other than that I would recommend.

We were regulars at Basil's so we were very disappointed with how rudely we were treated upon arriving. We did not stay for dinner and will not be going back. Here's a tip for the host/seater. Please don't scold grown adults. You were overly curt when speaking to my husband, which upset him VERY much. He was taken back by the tone and volume you used when scolding him as he was just about to sit down. And, you're welcomed for keeping you in business during Covid...

Basil's is one of the best restaurants in the Naperville/Aurora area. Always friendly, food is always good. Greek restaurant as good as any of the Greek restaurants in the Chicago Greek Town area. It is somewhat pricier than the Chicago restaurants but the experience is top notch. I've always found the times I've been there to be a good value.

Currently doing the social distancing thing.

Try a glass of Ouzo on the rocks with grilled calamari for a starter. Grilled, not deep fried.
