Love Basta but disappointed that the beetroot ravioli has been taken off the regular menu and is offered as a special. Reckon it's the best pasta dish. Put it back on the menu please.
Thanks for your feedback Karen. The Ravioli are back on the menu now.

Very tasty food- loved the bruschetta. I tried the porchetta and it was good. For the size you need an entre to go with it if you have a larger appetite. Service was very good. My wife tried three entre meals for her dinner and they were all good. The staff were willing to change any meal as desired. Waiting time for meals was not too long either.
Basta Team are very happy to hear your kind words. We work hard every day so that our guests can enjoy a wonderful experience. As we are keen to please you again.

Great atmosphere, great food. Loved the meatballs. Some nice non-alcoholic drinks (eg mocktails) too.
Thanks John

About Basta

Not too much, not too little! Basta is a new Italian restaurant concept in Fitzroy established by the owners of Casa Ciuccio. The word Basta means ‘enough’ – and talks to the ethos and mantra of Basta of creating and serving delicious food from simple, yet delicious handmade pasta and fresh locally sourced produce. Not too little, not too much, just enough. The menu includes everything from delicate antipasti to hearty pasta dishes and rich meats like porchetta and Gippsland grass fed flank steak! Best dish: squid ink gnocchi with mussels, prawn, squid and smoked tomato sugo.
