We usually love this place. The last time we wenter, however, the "regular" waiter wasn't there are the sub/new person wasn't as solid. We will still be back though.

...this was a terrific recommendation from those who proceeded us and submitted kudos on-line. There are multiple pluses about this restaurant...great food...attentive wait staff...very attractive surroundings & extremely clean bathrooms. If your hesitant about driving and parking there's no need to worry as there is a public lot less than 300 feet form Basil Brick Oven Pizza.

Saw the great review on Open table. We were staying in Long Island City so it was a short train ride to the restaurant. It was easy to find. Everything about this restaurant was excellent! Best meal we had in 4 days of being in New York. We would definitely recommend this restaurant- you won't be disappointed!

This is a restaurant/pizzeria serving both regular plates and neapolitan style pizzas. While the food is good, I prefer the thinner style Roman pizza, so I wasn't blown away by what we ate. The wine list is nice, and moderately priced.

First visit to Basil's. Had a weekday lunch with a cousin I hadn't seen in ages. The restaurant was very pretty and really quiet, which was ideal for us. We were happy to share one of their gorgeous salads and a delicious multi-mushroom risotto which was also excellent.
The prices are about average for Astoria (which means at least 20% less than Manhattan).
It's very close to the Astoria Boulevard Station on the N or W.
I want to ret many more things on that menu, and I will be back!

Came here on a rainy day with my fiance and mother-in-law. Had a wonderful dinner that left us stuffed (the Popeye pizza is our favorite)! Service was incredibly attentive.

Good for a pizza and beer if you're in the area, but not worth traveling to from a distance. Pasta with clams was made with an odd addition of paprika and the restaurant had an overwhelming smell of bleach.

The food was very good. We had three of the personal pizzas between our group and every pie was better than the last. We had an enjoyable experience and the staff were very friendly.

Ashamed to same I've lived in Astoria for some time now and while I've passed Basil many times, it wasn't until a friend recommended the pizza (and tiramisu) that we joined others for dinner on a Friday night. The service was very friendly and the food delicious. I wish we'd splurged on Tiramisu rather than a salad, but the Popeye pizza with creamy ricotta, mozzarella, sauteed spinach, and an egg stole the show!
