The oldest restaurant currently operating in Staten Island, this historic Italian bistro is located in the same 19th-century carriage house where it opened back in 1921. Once a favorite place for the City's Italian immigrants to congregate and play a little bocce, Basilio has a broader clientele these days, but still offers a traditional menu of house-made pastas, alongside Italian rustic classics like fried calamari, veal piccata and fresh mussels—and the bocce court is still there too, just like the old days.
