They are NO MORE. CLOSED. They were great. Best value in NYC. I sorely miss them. Family illness was reason for closing. Sorry to see them go. Excellent Italian food.

This is an okay Italian place. The food is average. The attitude of servers and host - not so great! I didn't feel invited. They have a lunch menu ~($10 +2).. So I just gave it a try. Food is certainly freshly cooked for you including soup. In fact soup was pretty decent but entree was okay. Overall there are... More

A friend and I ate at Basilica before seeing a show on Broadway. If that is your plan, make reservations. The place was packed. They offer a pre-show dinner special (starter, entree, dessert) that is very reasonably priced and comes with a complimentary bottle of wine. The service is efficient and friendly, and the food was good. But be prepared--this... More

If you need a reasonable great food restaurant near the theatre ... go no further! Try a fresh pasta or one of their specials of the day and you will not be disappointed! Enjoy!

Tiny little place in Hell's Kitchen. This restaurant is so small that you have to go outside to change your mind. This place is so small that 2 dinner plates will not fit on the table. Order the prixe fixe or you will spend a small fortune on very little mediocre food. We had the chicken parmesan and the parpadelle... More

Our mains- two veal with lemon sauce, the other a very nice gnocchi pasta. For desert 1 chocolate mousse and 1 canoli. Both very good. A bottle of wine for 2... More

In a city where most things are expensive, it was a delight to discover this little place. I've dined at the Basilica many, many times since 2006 and have never been disappointed. Service is great, atmosphere is warm and welcoming plus the food is just excellent and a good value. I think their slogan sums up why this place is... More

When visiting home over the holidays we decided to stop by Basilica based on some reviews I had read. We were not disappointed. Located near Restaurant Row, this small (and I mean small) hole in the wall offers a fine selection of authentic italian food. For starters we had the bruschetta(fresh and delicious) and the garlic bread with cheese on... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
