Great atmosphere. Great Service. The food is average. It used to be great. Plus I just think the menu is limited really.. like too much pasta. The kebobs is something I used to go there for but they changed it and the rice is like this sticky mexican rice kind of thing.. too much stuff added in. Gyros and basic... More

Friends took us to this restaurant for lunch last week. They asked fi we liked Greek food....YES...we usually went to another restaurant and they said this was even BETTER. It WAS. The watermelon salad was so unusual and refreshing. Our entrees were delicious. This is not a chain restaurant... everything is prepared fresh and to perfection. The owner and his... More

Beautiful patio, lovely inside. Server excellent. Food was delicious! Potatoes to die for! Lamb was perfect! But prices too high.

My husband and I stopped for lunch. We wanted something different, and boy did we get it. He had a shrimp and scallop medley. Large shrimp and tasty scallops. I didn't try it (it has bell peppers, ugh), but he said it was delicious. I decided to try the bolognaise. Our server, Ross, said it is made with lamb meat... More

I went here for lunch. The food was delicious! I ordered the chicken walnut salad & it was a very large serving. The restaurant is very nice. It would be good for a business meeting or other event. The service was excellent. The restaurant wasn't too busy, so we were seated right away.

My husband and I went in for dinner early one evening. The restaurant was spacious and had a very nice atmosphere. We were a little taken aback at the prices of the entrees--they were standard offerings for a Greek restaurant, but we spent significantly more than we've spent at Greek restaurants in other communities (including Chicago).

I wasn't expecting much when another couple suggested that we join them at a Greek restaurant by a mall. Wrong. It's very, very good. If you love lamb, good lamb, this is the place. We went on a Saturday afternoon and had the restaurant to ourselves. It is packed for dinner, so go a bit earlier and there's no waiting.... More

I had a taste for Greek food and found Basil's on Trip Advisor. I'm so glad I did. The food is excellent, the wine choices offer Greek and California wines, and very helpful service. It was a Saturday night, but the restaurant was less than half full. That's disheartening. My husband and I will happily return, and hope others support... More

Our first visit to the Aurora/Naperville area so we tried a bunch of different restaurants. This was our favorite in the area. We enjoyed our visit and the food was excellent. Great selection and Mayra was a fantastic server. She knew the menu and made great recommendations and was back to check on us frequently.

This is one of my favorite places to eat in the Naperville area when dining with my wife or friends. The service is always super friendly and high quality meal. Recommend the eggplant and zucchini chips as well as the gyros.

Thank Amit P
