Five of us went to Basilio's Tuesday night. I had to pick the restaurant and I am glad I picked Basilio's. We all ordered different appetizers and entrees and all were excellent. Service was helpful and pleasant. We had a good night and I would recommend this place to others.

If you are in Staten Island, this is a great representation of good old traditional Italian food. We were there last year and the food was just wonderful!

We drove by this restaurant one night when it was off season and closed. After reading the history and reviews we decided to come back.
So glad that we did! The staff was very nice and friendly. They made us feel welcome and at home.
The food was delicious.
We started with the cucumber and tomato salad, mozzarella in carrozza and the fritto misto. Everything was great.
Next our table ordered the home made whole wheat fettuccine with eggplant, gamberoni al cognac, and costoletta di maiale alla parmigiana. Everyone was completely satisfied with their meals.
Finally we ended our meal with homemade delicious and warm cheese cake and sfogliatelles.
We had a great time, excellent meal and will definitely be returning.
I highly recommend it.

After sitting in traffic for two hours, my wife and I were hungry, and looking for a place to eat. The reviews for this place were very good so we decided to try it out. We stopped in at around 7:30. The building is old as advertised. We found the outside and inside appeared to have and unclean feel to it. Also the inside had a slight musty smell. Perhaps that is their appeal. We were seated by our waitress who was very nice. We noticed this place had plenty of table seating, but there weren't many people dining. Maybe Thursday evenings aren't their busy nights. We were brought warm water with no ice, and some stale bread with rock hard butter. We should have taken that for a bad sign. We were hungry and decided to order dinner anyway. We started with their Baratta with Zucchini which was very good. For our main course we ordered off of the their specials menu. Veal Chop Parmigiana with Green Beans and Potato, and their Ricotta and Spinich Ravioli. The Veal Chop was tender but lacked flavor, and the Ravioli was under cooked. Although our waitress was very nice, and attentive, the ambiance, and food was not good enough to have us try again. Still trying to figure out the great reviews.

The Long Island duck with fig reduction was beyond compare. The ambience is old school high end Italian. This place is one of the few places that actually reminds me of ristorantes in Europe
