Great location and ok staff However the food is mediocre at best. Given the number of Italian restaurant is the area, I will definitely pass the restaurant and go somewhere else.

I have only been to Basil Leaf Cafe for lunch. The tomato basil soup was the best soup I have ever had- it is something you must try! The sandwiches are pretty good as well.

I have been a regular at the Bas Leaf Cafe for years--ever since I can remeber, really. There is amazing food ( i would particularly recommend the butternut squash soup and the gnocci with sun-dried tomatoes) and great service. I have almost never had to wait for a table. My father knows the owner and he is a very nice gentleman. The deserts are also fabulous. They are smll enough so that you are not too full or overwhelmed after eating them but big enough to split betwen two people.

Pros: Very good food and great atmosphere

Cons: Menu does not vary very often.

Love this place, good bread, nice atmosphere, recent remodel with a sleek but welcoming bar area. large portions with plenty to take home. Also really enjoy the entree salads, good portions with fresh and interesting ingredients

My favorite italian restaurant as of last weekend. I've been there a few times and have never been disappointed.

Pros: Food, Ambience and service

Cons: long wait for food on busy nights but it's expected.

Great place to hang out and read a good book, or sip some wine from the house list. The staff serves up a bread basket which, if you're sitting on the patio, is passed to a waitress out through a service window in the wall. They serve decent pasta, as well, which always comes with Bruscetta Bread, topped with pesto, tomatoes and a lot of garlic. Prices are good.

Basil Leaf adds some creative to italian staples and always has great specials. I almost always order their specials which are always great. Service is much better than anything else i have ever seen at a moderately priced restaurants. servers are attentive and know the menu. complementary bruschetta is great as well.

Basil Leaf Cafe is an exceptional Italian restaurant in the Lincoln Park area. The service in this restaurant was superb, the food was moderately priced, and atmosphere was relaxed and simple.

Basil Leaf is easily one of the best finds in Lincoln Park. Everything from the complimentary Bruschetta when you are seated to the fresh fruit water adds the extra touch that makes this dinning experience one you'll remember. The wait staff is impeccably trained - which is a very pleasant surprise considering the very reasonable prices. Try the grilled vegetable pasta - excellent. The outdoor seating is one of the best in chicago.

The Scene
The Basil Leaf's dining room is small and haphazardly decorated in a European country style. Every sizzle from the kitchen is audible, and the place buzzes nightly with dating couples and gathering families. Servers are…
