In the Rallo family, cooking isn’t merely about food, it’s a way of life. Victor Sr., Victor Jr. and Bobby spent the majority of their lives perfecting the art of fine Italian cuisine. Evidence of this quest for perfection can be found at The Original Basil T’s, a long standing restaurant that is their tribute to “The Italian Table” located in Red Bank, New Jersey. With a menu and ambiance that is deeply-rooted in tradition and features authentic Italian and original recipes which many hail as the best dining experience in Monmouth County. Everything is homemade, from the sauces and dressings to the mozzarella cheese, as well as the spectacular desserts and award winning beers.
Upon entry you are transported to Italy with an open antipasto bar in the center of the dining room were fresh tomatoes, cheeses and other imported produce can be found ripening in baskets. The Prosciutto di Parma and Auricchio Provolone hanging throughout simply make your mouth water. By the time you’re handed the menu, which includes authentic Pizza Napoletana and traditional Italian pastas like ravioli and gnocchi, all made in house, your senses are ready to take what Victor Jr. refers to as, a feast for the body and soul.” The menu also features prime meats and sustainable fish and seafood products that are hand selected at their seasonal peak. While your reviewing the menu, don’t be surprised when you’re greeted table-side by one of our expert sommeliers they will walk you through our regionally renown Italian wine list.
