Never though I could find a real New York Style deli/restaurant out in VA! This place was the perfect spot to stop off and eat!! I travel frequently up and down I95. I have a Gluten allergy and was able to get a Tuna melt that was pressed on the best GF Kaiser roll!! My boyfriend got a French dip and he loved it!! We also ate outside which was a plus too! In Jersey you cant go out and eat anywhere!!

We absolutely love this place! My fiance and I have both tried various menu items and they never disappoint. Plus the dessert at this place is to die for! The service is always great and you definitely get your moneys worth too! I always make sure the get the cucumber salad here, it's my favorite!

I wanted to try something new and looked up restaurants near me. I saw the 4 stars and tried it out, and I must say the food is the fkn BOMB you will not be disappointed. I mean, I had to call them to personally tell them this joint is bomb AF. Due to the lockdown, I don't have to feel bad about not wanting to cook everyday. Thank you so much- I must come back, like tomorrow.

My family and I have enjoyed our food here. The wait staff is cordial and helpful. My church used the large gathering room for our women's ministry and we are were delighted with everything. I am so glad they are able to stay open during this crazy time.

In addition to the very friendly, communicative staff, the food is delicious! It looks exactly like the pictures and tastes ver good. It’s also very well priced. I would say the pizza is big enough for 2-3 people.

Great food! Great Dessert bar! Fantastic cappuccino/espresso bar. You need to visit this place on an empty stomach!

Flipping. AWFUL SERVICE!! Ordered an Italian Hero online, came as a sandwich. They chalked it up to a glitch in the online service! ITS CALLED AN ITALIAN HERO!!!! In my world heros are not sandwiches! Manager had no care or Concern at the Fredericksburg Harrison road site. Basilcio sucks! I will never ever EVER give them my business again! Thought I was helping out fellow service industry during this time of pandemic, but just fueling a failing uneducated bunch of people!

A nice clean Italian restaurant located in a strip mall. At first we thought it was a fancy pizza place but pleasantly surprised to find that they offered a wide range of Italian food. Excellent entrees, gelato, wines, and according to my well traveled Italian friend authentic pastries that are rarely offered I.e. sfogliatelle in most bakeries. Friendly service.


Baked goods and pastries look so delicious and taste better than they look. You can feel the calories jumping on as you gaze at them. A full menu accents the comfortable atmosphere. Pleasant servers attend to your every desire. A must for all to put on their bucket list.

Love the food, they have amazing Italian desserts, gelato and coffee bar.

Authentic - the real deal. You know it's real NY Pizza when you fold it, the pizza tip droops, and orange-like colored olive oil slowly drips. That is NY pizza. The Italian sandwich is just to die for. Finally, the deserts are incredible. I wish we had a Basilico Deli on RT 610.


Exceptional assortment of food options. Great quality and timely service. Deserts are fantastic too.

Basilico has the best sandwich combos around, made fresh to order and their desserts can’t be beat. 2 locations to serve you. The one at Harrison Crossing is the largest and best I feel. I wish they would open one in Stafford near Geico and UMW.

Lived here all of my life and am just now getting to it. I've definitely been missing out. I got the chicken pesto panini and it was everything that I expected and some. Also, I sampled the gelato while waiting on my was very refreshing. I definitely plan to come back sooner and more often.

Family favorite. Great pizza, sandwiches, bakery, gelato, and service. You can't go wrong with anything here, bit I highly recommend the Chicken Pesto Panini.

I really wanted to like this place. I think we just ordered wrong. The gluten free pizza was not great and the orange salad too sugar laden. The tiramisu was nice. The people friendly. We would go there again and order differently.

I really like their food 80% of the time. I'm not sure if sometimes the chefs change or if they can't handle bigger crowds but there are times that I come here when the food just isn't the same. Consistency is something I really look for when I visit a restaurant again. Otherwise their spaghetti and meatballs are the best I have found in the burg and their pizza is excellent as well!

Great Itanian style food pizza great verity the best deserts in town all home made great location easy to get to


We stopped here after reading Trip Advisory reviews. Everyone was right. Great service and delicious food. Menu full of interesting choices. Topped our meal with some great gelato. Easy access to I 95.

This is a high quality alternative to Panera. It gets crowded on Sundays, mothers day, etc, but the sandwiches and salads are great. It isn't the cheapest eats, but they're fanned tasty and never disappointing

Mary Martindill

My husband and I love this place for our “dessert dates” a great selection is always available. Lemon cheesecake is the best!


Good food and service. Service is fast. Food is good. Desert bar is off the chain. Pizza has a good crust

The best gluten free pizza I have ever had. Definitely seems like a freshly made crust. I had it topped Granny Smith style. Amazing!!! My BF had lasagna and said it was delicious.

Basilico's is really a cute and comfortable place, great vibe, good family atmosphere, neighborhood atmosphere and very clean! The menu is diverse, something for everybody. The place was packed. Service was amazing, the staff super, super friendly! Love the pizza crust cooked in that old timey oven. light and airy pizza. Love the cheesecake and the desserts are huge (but a little too pricey for me... costs the same as a sandwich which is weird). I was going to comment on the food but really, it is good, not the best i've ever had but it was really decent. They should be proud for the good job they've done to put such a nice place together. Next time I think I will try an Italian hoagie and see how it pans out. I like that they have plenty of salads. Also like that they sell some of their meats by the pound so I can make my own salads at home. And, I believe I could get a glass of vino with a meal which is nice for this type of restaurant. Thank you for a nice time! It is rare to get such excellent service and really good food. I would like to see a little more flavor put in the pizza sauce. maybe some salt?

I have loved just about everything I have had here! The honey, arugula. and apple pizza and panini is one of my most favorite indulgences. Their peach gelato is also decadent and don't get me started on their mac n cheese. Definitely a personal favorite.

Melanie Yarboro

I'll never get enough of this place. Awesome food for a decent price, and they have a dessert counter that will excite any sweet tooth with lots of gelato and dozens of different baked goods

Food is bomb but customer service inside the restaurant is 4/5. I wasn’t greeted it’s all very confusing when you walk in
