Food was tasty with great service. A little pricey but it is a more upmarket place.

Disappointing food, the ox tongue last year was excellent but this time cooking method has changed. Both my friend and I found it quite salty. The fish main was overcooked and too salty, I had to ask for it to be recooked. My friend's roast pork was average, the skin wasn't crispy at all.
Thanks for your feedback.

Perfect location for a meal before visiting imax or the museum. The restaurant was quiet upon arrival and as only one waiter was working there was a wait before he was able to greet us, similarly to have our wine and water topped up. However he made up for this with his polite and patient manner. We sampled the broccoli orecchiette and the Italian sausage pasta, and it was evident the pasta was house made. Delicious. The Italian Pinot Grigio we shared went beautifully with the meal.
Thanks for your feedback.

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.
