  •  Awesome local Italian joint. Cash only and always full. More convenient to order take-out which usually takes 20-30 mins, instead of waiting forever outside.

  •  Lamb shank is incredible

  •  One of the best spots in Needham. Cozy -- dim lights, funky toned down music, and (fake) candles :) get the Gouda cheese appetizer and homemade ravioli!

  •  Goat cheese and beet salad is amazing!

  •  Portion sizes are huge. You can easily split an appetizer before your entree. Slow service, but worth the wait.

  •  Amazing food here, got the portobella sandwich and it is amazing. Found out the hard way they only accept cash. This is now my out of Boston favorite place.

    55555 by Shane M.

  •  Bring wine, cash (no cc) and an appetite. Sweet Basil is my favorite place - I eat here weekly when in town. They've really ruined me for other spots - I love the food and the staff.

    55555 by Mark B.

  •  Incredible food!! Bring your own bottle of wine and be sure to bring cash. HUGE portions, but they make great leftovers. Strike up a conversation with their awesome staff

    55555 by Evan M.

  •  Make sure you bring cash!
