“Basilico is definitely the number one restaurant in Woodbridge. Been to this restaurant many times and every time is better than the last. Best Chicken in town, I highly recommend trying their "Polo Matone" it will not disappoint.”

“I have been to Basilico a number of times for parties and and dinner and have had a pleasant experience every time I went, the wait staff is friendly and accomodating The baked beans appetizer is pleasently different from your normal baked beans, the pasta dishes are not a lot to choose from but are very good, they bring you a nice loaf of bread drizzled with olive oil and rosemary, and is very fragrant , the cold antipasta tray is also varied with a nice assortment of cheeses , olives and proscuitto and salami, the hot fried calamari was not greasy , I like a nice marinara sauce with a touch of hot pepper to dunck my calamari in, they will accomadate you. The wines are good and not overly priced, and they really are doing things right.”
“Loved the pizzas because it was thin and just tasted real!”
