A word from Bastas Trattoria and Bar
Bastas opened its doors in 1992 and has always taken advantage of our Northwest bounty . We use local organic produce, meats, forest ingredients as well as fish. All of our fresh pastas as well as sausages, pancetta, breads, desserts and infusions are made in house. We believe in supporting our local artisans, and even though our chairs are original (recycled) post modern, they were refurbished locally and the couches and tables were made only a few blocks away. The wood on the walls and tables was salvaged from local barn lumber, and even the point of sale system was designed and is maintained locally.

We are at fault in only one way... our award winning wine list is Italian, like the owner.

Diner Reviews
  • "Everyday is Happy Hour, the deals and food are outstanding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I won't be going back. Really plain food with hardly any taste."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "This was my first visit and I will definitely go back. The menu provided several vegetarian options and the house wine price was at happy hour prices until 6:30. The waiter ( Jay) was energetic, helpful with the menu and attentive. I am very happy a friend recommended this spot."

  • "The food was good, and our server was outstanding. This biggest issue was that the restaurant didn't have a high chair for children. I'm not sure how a restaurant could even be operating without a high chair."

  • "Finally made it to Bastas for dinner with friends. We were seated promptly at our reservation time, and our server was quite pleasant. We opted for a mix of small plates and dinner plates. Everyone enjoyed their meals, especially the wild boar dinner plate and the brussel sprouts were perfectly prepared. The wine list was excellent, and the had 5-6 local beers to choose from also. By the end of the meal we were too full for dessert, but many of them listed on the menu sounded excellent."

  • "Basta’s: a foodie bargain! All-night Happy Hour; a $9 ample plate of delicious port-sauced pork-tenderloin or one of the best hamburgers in town, both with amazing Tuscan potatoes. Two can share a huge Caesar salad WITH anchovies. Try calamari uniquely paired with lentils, a grand variety of Italian dishes, and daily specials...spaghetti with bottarga last night. The bartender can make a proper Negroni. Hazelnut gelato and tiramisu are authentic, luscious, and a perfect end to your meal. (The only drawback: a distracting screen, but at least there's no sound, only subtitles.) Servers are attentive, friendly, and fun...we especially love the delightful Shelby! Don't be fooled by the IHOP-style architecture; inside is a very special spot!"

  • "Went in for a Valentine's dinner, first time there. The restaurant had pretty good reviews online, but it was a disappointment. We asked for a steak well , done, came in medium rare, had them recook it with the same result. The other dish, pasta, was average, sauce tasted like from a jar. Service was courteous, though."

  • "Back in the mid-80's my mother and I used to dine at the same location when it was a Chinese restaurant. I even remember when it was a Tastee-Freeze way before too! Then it became a Malaysian restaurant before Bastas. I only ate at Bastas once back in 1996 or 1997, can't remember, so long ago. Our visit on 2/15/14 was FANTASTIC. From the moment we walked in to the moment we said good bye. The service is spectacular! The food, even better. We ordered the escargo for an appetizer, not bad. Dinner consisted of Gnocchi e Maiale (gnocchi with pork), seafood medley baked with spaghetti with a crust in a clay pot (baked, think: pie), and roasted asparagus. All delicious and presented/created with care. So good....thank you and we'll be back!"

  • "The menu had lots of choices ranging from traditional plates to dishes with lots of imagination and interesting food pairings. Wines (Italian of course) were super. We had a Barbera and a Sangiovese. It was a cute restaurant, laid out to use the space well but able to make you feel like you had your own private space. It's on my list now!"

  • "Great service, creative and delicious food. And the wine list is impressive, and NOT marked up nearly as much as most restaurants."
