Basilico is a bit of an odd place as it looks like just a normal house advertising Italian food, but it's much more. Park out back and make your way in. You'll find a real cozy family like atmosphere where the people have you actually sitting in their kitchen/dining room with a giant hot table filled with Italian favorites.

I ordered the lasagna special while the girlfriend ordered a Chicken parm sandwich. Both dishes come on a plate and they come messy so make sure to ask for more napkins. The lasagna was good. I could tell it had sat out for a bit, but I think it actually made it better because the sauce was absorbed fully and the cheese was all melty.

The chicken parm was a good sandwich. The cheese and the chicken melted together to form an oozing gooey center that is both warm and inviting. The sauce is layered on heavy and is rich. Definitely the kind of sandwich that requires multiple napkins. Both dishes were priced fairly.

I love the people here as they are so friendly and make conversations about your day. They weren't awfully busy, but he came off as a genuinely friendly guy who cares. The place itself is the ideal family restaurant that operates as a home business. Definitely worth a visit, despite how odd it might look on the outside.
