A light-hearted Italian eatery, Sweet Basil offers diners an authentic Italian experience out in the ‘burbs. Located in Needham, the cozy restaurant features eat-in and take-out menu boasting more than thirty varieties of hand-made pastas from classics to originals like beet rigatoni or rye bread gnocchi. Whenever possible, chef-owner David Becker sources from New England farms and buys from local purveyors. Even the plates on which the food is served are made locally – by Becker himself at a nearby pottery studio.
Becker keeps things simple at the unassuming spot where it’s bring-your-own beer or wine, and cash and check-only. The restaurant doesn’t accept reservations, but guests rarely complain as their patience is often rewarded with samples from the menu.
