Wish I started coming here sooner! Came here with some coworkers for the first time and may have to start making this a frequent visit. I love, love, love, pastas, breads, and all the carbs! They have it all: sandwiches, pizzas, pastas, loafs of bread, and salads. Usually the thought of a high-carb meal like pasta in the middle of a work day sounds like a terrible idea. Basil is great because of their 1/2 and 1/2 combos, giving a better balance. I order d the chicken Alfredo and the Greek salad combo. Yum! I feel like chicken Alfredo from restaurants can be a gamble on tastiness. Basil checks all the boxes! I also loved the Greek salad dressing. Would order this salad again. All meals came with 3 slices of bread. You will not leave this place hungry...I promise you.
