This is the third time I’ve come here. Each time I keep wanting it to be good but each time it lets me down. The arancini are good. That’s it. I wish they would do a simple pasta dish but each time they try to add some kind of spin to it. It doesn’t work and the food is just generally bad. The place is cold and has no atmosphere.
Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience. We regret that we have not lived up to your expectations.

While the food was good, there were some elements that took away from a good experience such as one dish being Luke warm, and having to remind the waiter that we booked via The Fork. Other than that the food was great and good atmosphere!!
Thanks for your feedback. It's was a very busy night, I am sure you noticed that the "waiter" was actually one of the chef that came around to help and you can probably forgive him for not noticing the discount that applied on your booking. We hope to see you again.

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.
