In a neighborhood where you can find multiple options from almost every type of cuisine known to man, there were surprisingly few brick over pizza spots before Basil. Set in a homey space right off the Astoria Blvd stop on the N/W, Basil was a welcome addition to this area. They crank out some of the best thin crust brick oven pizza in the city with service as welcoming and friendly as it gets.
You can get as creative as you’d like with toppings, but the classic Margherita will never disappoint either. In fact it will hold its own against any of its elders around Manhattan and Brooklyn that have become tourist attractions with hour or more waits every night.
