Bazil is a casual-dining experience created by Mario and Flora Daniele to showcase the rich cuisine of their native Italy. Start with the standard bearer of Italian appetizers, calamari, served crispy (with aioli and marinara; $7.95) or served Sicilian style (tossed with banana peppers, olives, and garlic; $8.95). Savor each lip-smacking bite while sipping a glass of chianti ($5.75) or a specialty cocktail, such as a chocolate martini or Bayside Bellini, in the ambient, stone-walled dining area. Unlimited soup or family-style salad complement hearty pasta dishes such as the Taste of Italy platter, chicken parmigiano swaddled in lasagna and manicotti ($15.95). Linguine di mare features shrimp, scallops, baby clams, and mussels culled from the sea, bathed in white wine, and plated alphabetically, according to Italian food law ($16.95). For dessert, get the best of a carnival without being forced to walk a tightrope with an original funnel cake, topped with caramel and vanilla ice cream ($5.95).
