Transported us back to Italy. Great feel and lovely homemade pasta. Thanks Dimmi ‘special restaurant month’ for helping us discover another great restaurant. We’ll be back!
Thanks Mark

Grazie Mille Maurizio !

Great place for pasta. Highly recommend their Tiramisu post dinner. The ambiance was super good and cozy. The only suggestion would be the service time. Had to wait 40 mins between Entree and mains but I believe that was due to it being really crowded that evening
Hi Abhishek, thanks for your feedback. Unfortunately Fridays people tend to run late, due to traffic or been kept at work at little longer. That effect service time and many restaurants(especially the ones with small kitchen like our) end up getting too many people at once. Thanks for understanding. We hope to see you again soon.

Food was great, but my favourite was definitely the pasta. Basra has a nice and relaxing ambience. And the service staff were very friendly and approachable. Only downside was that the food was slightly pricey.
Thanks for your feedback

The price for a main dishes are around $30-$40. Taste nice but the portion is comparatively small. A bit pricy. But we got dimmi 50% off deal for restaurant of the month. Pretty good deal!
Thanks for your feedback. Our prices are similar to other comparable business in the area, and we strive to offer good value and quality service. Please send us more feedback to fabio@basta.com.au in regards to portions size, pricing and what you would compare that too. We hope to see you again soon.

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.
