The atmosphere of Basta is lovely and relaxed. Food was great maybe a little on the pricey side if paying full price (I had a 50% off deal). Elvis our waiter was very sweet and charming. Great drink list with a variety of different beers. Definitely worth trying
Thanks for your feedback Maida.

We went with the 50% off offer. Whilst not the best Italian I've ever, food was super quick and quite tasty, whilst the service was attentive but not overbearing. Felt like sometimes they food was a little underseasoned and not as flavourful, but they did have some very original dishes, including the beetroot ravioli.
Thanks for your feedback.

We had the degustation and it was fabulous! So many delicious sounding dishes on the menu that we’ll need to go back for. Great little date spot, and wine is pretty decent too. The atmosphere is very cozy and service warm and attentive. I’d recommend it in a heart beat!
Thanks Andrew.

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.
