Good service and ambience. Nice bruschetta, gnocchi and dessert but some of the other dishes were average and portion sizes are small.
Thanks for your feedback. I am disappointed that you believe you are not been offered value for money. Our prices and portion sizes are similar to other comparable business in the area, and we strive to offer good value and quality service. We hope to see you again.

I'm very thankful for Dimmi Restaurant Month as I never would have discovered Basta otherwise. We dined here as a group of 4 on Sat 21 July (upstairs) and again as a group of 3 on Tues 31 July (downstairs) for dinner. We have almost tasted the entire food and dessert menus and nothing has disappointed us, it was all incredibly tasty and authentic. The wine list is also well curated; we had beautiful Sicilian red wines to complement all our savoury dishes. We thoroughly enjoyed the apperitivo hour that consisted of well-prepared cocktails by an excellent female bartender on both nights. A very special shout-out and huge thank you to our european male waiter who was consistently attentive, friendly and professional on both nights - we were so impressed that he remembered us from the first night and what wines we had ordered, especially given how busy Basta was during Restaurant Month. We felt well taken care of and never rushed. Please send our many thanks to the waiter! We had such a wonderful experience on two occasions and can genuinely say that we can't wait to return to Basta as we clearly can't get 'enough'!!
Thanks for you feedback Danni. We will pass you compliments onto our team. Grazie.

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.
