Fresh Basil's Trattoria
Posted by Rashedia on 09/26/2006
If you are not observant, you will walk by Fresh Basil on Lex and not even notice it...i guess this is what I like best about it! The food is excellent & service is good. I always order lunch from there like atleast twice per week!! I've taken my sister, friends and bosses here and they loved it. Definately affordable excellent food.

I order take out usually once a week. The food has always been quickly delivered and always hot. The value is great. And I like what I eat enough so that I'm happy to give them repeat business. Nice work guys!

For a good meal without spending a fortune; this is the place. I too (having frequented the place on occasions) have walked in and found that the waiter remembered me and knew exactly what I like to drink. The waiter and bus boys are always courteous. Sometimes they're a little slow in bringing the bread or your drink but I was never in that much of a rush that it mattered. All-in-all, it's a nice place to eat if you don't want to spend an arm and a leg.

Great, fresh Italian food; excellent fish, nice sauces; order lunch here several times each week; great value

It takes a real talent to put together a completely mediocre and bland plate of pasta. But Fresh Basil may just be talented enough. My pasta was as dull as can be - the sauce tasted like it came out of a can. Sure, the value is decent as compared to some of the pricier Italian places in town, but you would be better off buying a box of pasta and a jar of Classico

For Italian, this place is average at best. Waiter was not very attentive. Salad was OK. Main dishes were not great. Carpet was dirty and decor dated. I would not go back.

You cant beat the value. I eat in there often enough that my waiter knows what I want to drink, and the bus boy(s) know that I dont want bread on my table. I've even had them make something for me that's not on the menu. I am sure there are more expensive places with better food, but the value here is fantastic.
