I have eaten at Fresh Basil two times and both times I had the penna a la vodka which was delicious. My most recent time I also had the ceasar salad which was absolutely amazing. I have eaten at several Italian restaurants in Manhattan and none compare to Fresh Basil. The service was good, the price reasonable especially for mid-town, and the food amazing. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!

I ordered Penne alla Vodka and it didn't taste anything like it. I have eaten at many places and many places weren't good, but this was downright cheese in every bite and no taste of penne. I threw 3/4 of my food away and i am not the kind of person who throws away food. However, i did eat the Tira Masu as, it was worth the money. So my suggestion if you need to go there order the dessert and go.

I have been taking out from here almost every friday night for over a month now. The food is delicious, always hot when it arrives and perfectly priced. It also completely fills me up before a big night of drinking! I always get the chicken marsala and sauteed veggies...delicious! But i've also tried the veil parm and chicken francese which were also great!

Just ordered the gnochi, sundried tomato pasta, chicken ceaser and "SHRIMP COCKTAIL". The gnochi was OK, but the pink sauce was great. The Sundried tomato pasta was extremely bland and fair at best. The ceaser was average and what I expected. HOWEVER, the shrimp cocktail was a slap in the face. Not only was the cocktail sauce simply ketchup but the 3, average sized shrimp were well over cooked. Delivery took about 30 mins and the portions (other than the shrimp) were decent.

This is one of my favorite places to eat lunch in midtown. I have it delivered and they are SO fast. I always get the penne with vodka sauce and it is always warm and delicious!

My best friend and I decided to try this place, only because it is close to Hunter, and it seemed good from reading all of the reviews. Well I must say the food was delicious and the service amazing. I plan to go back to Fresh Basil soon. It is def worth the trip, and the value is excellent, considering its location.

Working in Midtown it's very hard to find a good Italian place that has good Italian food that won't cost you a fortune. I have never had a bad meal at Fresh Basil's. Try the Shrimp Scampi or Penne Arrabiatta (Yum!)
