I order from here every week and have been impressed with the quality of food and the quick delivery. I highly recommend this Trattoria for lunch or dinner.

Fast delivery and wonderful service. Moderatly priced (under $20 for an entree). Meats seasoned to perfection, and crisp fresh vegetables, a tasty treat. They don't call them Fresh Basil's for nothing.

I waited an hour and a half for food that was not that good. And when I called to inquire about my order, the woman had a very nasty attitude. She didn't even offer to call the messenger/delivery person to find out where he was. Bottomline: if you're hungry and at work, do NOT order from here--you'll get your food cold and you'll be irate by the time it gets there.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Horrible woman who mans the phone, delivery boys who work at a snails pace

I stopped in here with a friend who lives in the neighborhood. Fresh Basils is a traditional take on Italian food with plenty of regulars and an unpretentious, cozy attitude. Waiters are extremely friendly, decor is homey and comfortable and food is excellent! I don't know anything about the lunch menu, have only been there for dinner but, there are some dishes that will surprise you. The Pasta Bolognese, Penne Vodka and Jumbo shrimp are simply DELISH! Good wine selection and reasonable prices, I now stop by if I'm in the neighborhood.

I have been getting lunch takeout from Fresh Basil for seven years now. Always great food. However I am a little upset over the recent price increases. A Chicken Francaise plate is close to $20 bucks now after you factor in the tax and a reasonable tip. I don't mind paying these prices if I am sitting down in the restaurant for dinner. But they should consider having a separate "lunch" menu with more reasonable prices. I will still order from here occasioanly when I have money to burn. But instead of ordering say 5-7 times a month, I am now only doing it about once a month.

My daughter and I was looking for somewhere to eat, we first past the Fresh Brasil/s Trattoria, and then came back to it, the waiting time was next to none, the service was wonderful and the food was the best we have tasted in a long time.
Wonder place must eat there when in the city.

I have eaten at Fresh Basil numerous times and never encountered anything but good food and good service. The waiters were attentive to us. My friend and I had arrived at the restaurant and we still were waiting for 2 more members of our party. Our 2 friends didn't arrive until an hour later! We got there at 6:30 and stayed until 9:30 PM. Our waiter was great to us the whole time.

1 positive - their gnocchi & mixed green salad with balsamic dressing is excellent, the rest of the menu is just ok. calarmar was so so, sauce was cold. svc was terrible - unattentive & curt. waited for our bill long time - you would think they want turnover. pricey for this quality of food & svc. SUM IT: again gnocchi & mixed greens were best, otherwise try elsewhere

Not to far from Bloomingdales & the N/W/R 456 trains... this is a great place to sit and relax for some fine Italian cusisine. Priced moderately for Manhattan, I highly recommend this place for a nite out with friends, or a night out with your significant other.

Pros: Great Food, Candle Light at Night, Spacious

Cons: Can get busy

The ambiance leaves something to be desired, but the food doesn't. Fresh Basil has great Veal Marsala. Great Value. You get a salad and a small plate of pasta with every entree. And the tomato sauce is really tasty.

Mediocre food served by rude waiters who really don't care. Extremely crowded at lunch time. Don't bother it's not worth it!

The food could be better, the ambience is loud and unwelcoming during lunch, and the service is not only inattentive but also disgusting.

Let me qualify the "disgusting" comment: one of the wait staff was carrying our food in both hands and suddenly sneezed into our food. Instead of taking it back, he nonchalantly placed our plates on the table without a word. We were mortified, and that's enough reason for me to never want to go back even though I can think of a few other reasons.
