This place has the best sandwiches, salads and pizzas in town. The people that work here put love into this food it's obvious. The deli items are wonderful too. The one thing though, you MUST save room for dessert. They have a real gelato bar and soooo many desserts to choose from. Nothing seems to come from some company that... More

Great lunch spot but go early or late. The hospital is around the corner and they get a pretty large lunch crowd. Summer eat outside because it is NOISY! Opt out on the cole slaw or potatoes salad. Sandwiches and pizza are fresh and very tasty -- don't forget to order your condiments or you won't have any mustard or... More

My wife and I went to Basilico for a light dinner before seeing a play at the University of Mary Washington. The weather was so pleasant that we were able to eat outside on their patio. My wife ordered the antipasto salad and I ordered the New Yorker Sandwich. Both items were prepared with fresh ingredients and served quickly. We... More

Basilico never disappoints! The food is delicious. The staff is friendly. The bakery is divine. A frequent 'go to' for my husband and I.

Warm welcome when we arrived. I ordered the Baked Ziti and felt it was excellent. We were tired and hungry upon our arrival and didn't have to wait too long for our meal.

We've come here many times over the years during our drives to from FL from NY and look forward to a nice relaxing quick sit down dinner. We haven't come in a couple of years so we were excited to stop on our way home to NY. Not sure if it was an off night but we weren't very happy... More

Great italian deli plus super desserts and pasta. Had a quick dinner last night. My friend had a pizza with potato and ricotta...she couldn't stop eating. Great crust and toppings. I had Cuban black bean soup and crusty bread. We skipped dessert this visit. Aside from all the other great reviews, I have to mention that this great place is... More

The menu has a wide offering of soups, salads, sandwiches, pizza and entrees for dinner. Everything sounded delicious and it was hard to choose. Serving were large and generous; we each took half of our meals home. Although we skipped dessert, the bakery and gelato were very tempting. They also offer coffee and wine.
