Come together with Rotarians from around District 7910 for an excellent dinner at a beloved restaurant in Needham, Sweet Basil. 

Up to 50 good people -- Rotarians, their family and friends -- can enjoy a fabulous dinner with a fixed price and the opportunity to BYOB.

Dinner will be served "family style," which means you don't have to decide and you can try each dish. Here's what we'll enjoy: 


  • Baked gouda wrapped in filo dough over mixed greens and fruit, topped with truffle vinaigrette
  • Mushroom Risotto special of the day  
  • Steamed mussels in a garlic and wine broth with tomatoes and fresh herbs over crostini

Main Courses: 

  • Lamb shank, slow braised and served with polenta and roasted vegetables
  • Seafood fra diavolo with shrimp, mussels, clams, and calamari in a spicy tomato brodo over linguini
  • Chicken scallopini with garlic, lemon, capers, tomatoes, and pasta on the side

The fixed price cost is $50, not including gratuity. 

To reserve your space(s), please RSVP here. Sweet Basil can welcome 50 guests, so first come, first served. 

To confirm your reservation, you'll be asked to make a non-refundable $10 deposit, which will go to the restaurant as your gratuity. 

Background: This Friendship Dinner is the result of a collaboration initiated by the Natick Rotary Club with the Needham Rotary Club because Sweet Basil in Needham is a favorite restaurant of Natick Rotarians. Sweet Basil is featured in the Natick Rotary Dinner On Us fundraiser, which runs through February 29th.
