Definitely not a Value restaurant. Imagine an Italian restaurant that was out of veal at 6:15PM on a Monday, really. We walked out.

I love this place for lunch with the ladies. The soups are spectacular as are the salads. It is in downtown Danville so you can walk around and shop/window shop before or after. Staff is very attentive and friendly.

We hadn't been to Basil Leaf in at least 8 years as we previously had a less than stellar experience. We went on a Friday night during "Danville Prime Time" and were able to get a great outdoor table. We were surprised that the place...More

This restaurant has been in Danville for quite awhile. I'm not sure why, because the food has never been outstanding. But it was always good enough for a lunch. It has nice outdoor seating and a pleasant atmosphere. The Caesar salad with grilled shrimp was...More

My wife chose the Basil Leaf for her birthday dinner. We have not been here in a while and wondered how things might have changed. We enjoyed our meal, on the patio outside without feeling rushed. We had reservations, but being a Monday night we...More
