Very historical and different. Simply if you like ousso Buco this is the place to go! Wine list is pretty decent, rest of the menu/dishes are your normal Italian

We've been going to this restaurant at least a few times a year for 11 years. We love the owner, Maurizio and his staff. In summer, since they grow some of their own vegetables and herbs, we see the chef coming from the garden with...More

Had the most delicious calamari for appetizer and was not disappointed with the main course of Pollo Basilio. The salad and dressing was crisp and tasty as were the green beans and potatoes. Only one waiter for a Monday night with about 14 eating dinner,...More

Nice grandma style Italian, but not great. The ambiance is a little more run-down than rustic, and the service is average.

The place is nice for lunch, but the service is poor. The waiter would only provide a large wine not a small wine, he also spilled half of one of the meals on the floor and did not relace what he had spilled on the...More

I'm a native Islander, and have been going to Basilio since they used to close down for the winter. The owner mostly looks like he's been running all day, but he's always pleasant and nice. The food is excellent, one of my favorite places for...More

Hi profdu201, I'm sorry I am not familiar with Morris County but I'm assuming you would be taking 278 towards the Goethals Bridge to Staten Island. Once you cross the Goethals, you stay on I278 toward the Verrazano... More
