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.

The food is great and legit (which is hard to find in the U.S.). Basil's is owned by a Greek family, and has good options of pizza, gyros and snacks.

Basil's is a small, family-owned pizza restaurant. The pizzas are well made and delicious. The staff is often overly busy but are courteous and helpful. The pasta dishes and gyros are good, too, but we most often have the pizzas usually with the Greek salad. The small salad is large enough for two of us to split. When our grandsons... More

Really good pizza here plus the cheese bread and mozz sticks were very good. Seating is somewhat limited so go early. Friendly staff!!! Would definitely come back here when in town.

Punch Pizza is my all time favorite, with multiple locations in MSP but this is a close 2nd. Plus, it's located in the quaint town of Northfield. Owned by a Greek family, and they make the best cracker crust pizza. The booths are worn and you can expect a wait on the weekends but it is worth it!

Along with George's and B&L's, Basil's serves up Greek "style" pizza to the Northfield area. Of the three, Basil's is easily the most consistent and enjoyable. Expect thin-crust pizza cut into squares with standard fare (pepperoni, sausage) alongside specialties like gyro meat. Haven't found anything quite like it anywhere else. Definitely a must-try if you're in town.

It had been so long I can't even remember the last time I had a Pizza at Basil's-(Bill's) must have been the mid 70's. Regardless of where I live or visit, all pizza's are rated on a scale with Bill's pizza as the standard. So now that it is Basil's I heard that the pizza was still good but in... More
