The pizza here was so good -- Greek style, with a crispy crust, cut into small pieces. Delicious ingredients, and the place is run by a family that seems to love what they do. Highly recommended.

Salad - too heavy on raw onions, shredded iceberg. Two small tomatoes, feta and two olives. Really no flavor. Pizzas were ok. Lacked any fresh herbs or tomatoes.

We Love Basil's! They have been our favorite pizza place for over 30 years. Now that we no longer live in Northfield, we still try to get there at least once a year. A family owned pizzeria, they know you when you come in (and knew us on the phone) for what you wanted. Pizzas, pasta, gyros, Greek salads, all... More

A great family owned pizzeria! Good pizza crust, fresh toppings, beer and wine list. We dined in the restaurant, but it looked like a popular takeout place too.

Loved their pizza since 1968, and it's still just as good. We love the house special. The pizza sauce is perfect.

We felt that the pizza was good, nice thin crust. The service was not good. We had to go get more napkins, ask for missing food to 3 different servers, and weren't told how or where to pay bill. Our waitress was young college age, not friendly, happy, or personable. I would order take out if we wanted pizza again.

We have been going to Basils for years. The kids LOVE the pizza, and I like their Spaghetti and Meat Balls. Always friendly service, good food. Their delivery is great too.

Been wanting to get there for awhile now and now it looks like we have found a place to stop by for a great pizza on the way home to Iowa. Just a few miles off I-35 and well worth it. We had the Hawaiian Pizza and the Garlic Cheese Bread (get the marinara sauce)....very cool pizza dough machine expertly... More

The place is a typical "Italian" (style and decor) pizza place. It is a no fuss, have a seat at a table. The pizza was very good and would be back if ever in town.
