About Basile’s Pizza

Basile’s (pronounced Basil’s, like the herb) is a no-frills pizzeria that focuses on one thing: serving quality pizza. It has been in operation for over 10 years, per Patch, and has the same owner as La Casa, located at 54 Newark Street.

Owner Russell Basile was inspired by his Tuscan roots when creating the pizza for the shop.

“We want to give it that Tuscan taste, where my family is from,” Russell told Patch.

Marketing itself as a family business, Basile’s has become a popular pizza spot in Hoboken. It has pick-up, delivery, and dine-in options.

Back in 2015, Basile’s partnered with Slice, a tech service that helps improve pizza delivery. This partnership has helped make delivery one of the prime offerings for Basile’s.

When it comes to the menu at Basile’s, it has all of the usual suspects. Whether you’re craving pepperoni, margarita, vegetable, or white pizza, Basile’s has you covered. There’s also an option to create your own pizza with a choice of 5 toppings. According to the website, the Grandma pizza is one of the shop’s most popular options. Spinach, pepperoni, and broccoli rolls are all also offered as sides, as well as garlic knots.

The Hoboken pizzeria is open from 10:30AM – 9PM every day, with later options available for delivery and takeout.
