sweet-basil-tbone-steakWe arrived at Sweet Basil on a sunny April evening. We noted that the ride was very pretty and the restaurant was easy to find, right off of the Tully exit on 81. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and seated in a comfy booth. We decided to start our meal with an order of deep fried ravioli; they were breaded, lightly fried, and stuffed with a delicious Italian cheese mixture. The fried ravioli was paired perfectly with the warm marinara sauce. For an entrée I decided on the Shrimp Riggies, a huge portion of rigatoni, giant shrimp, mushrooms, peppers, and onions in Sweet Basil’s very own secret sauce. sweet-basil-chicken-riggies-shrimpThe portions were enough for lunch and the secret sauce was right on! Sara decided one of the specials, a porterhouse steak served with a side of French fries. Her medium rare porterhouse was cooked to perfection and could have been cut with a butter knife because it was so tender. Although we were both stuffed we couldn’t pass up a slice of white chocolate raspberry cheesecake, or as we liked to call it, heaven.
