We came with 50% off through dimmi which made it such great value. We sat watching the kitchen, which was great. Dinner was really delicious - in particular the chicken liver pate and the paccheri. There's a lovely atmosphere, and great cocktails.
Thank you !

Food is just normal. Ordered the pasta and its normal. Desert is better than the mains.

Generous portion for entrees but slightly smaller than expected portion for the mains. They taste great nonetheless.

All dishes were good, only disappointment was the wholemeal pasta with pork which tasted bland. Oxas highlight, highly recommend.

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.
