I love this restaurant so much. Really enjoyable meal, I especially loved the cheese creme brulee appetizer and eggplant parmigiana. We had cannolis for dessert which were so tasty! The ambience is lovely and intimate and the staff is always so friendly and accommodating.

Celebrated my wife's birthday there. Nice, affordable wine list. Our waitress was exceptional - good suggestions, there when you needed here, friendly, knowledgeable. My wife's scallops and my lobster risotto were very good. Her canolli and my tiramisu were outstanding. In fact, the best tiramisu I've had anywhere. Great experience! Thanks so much!!

The food was wonderful but it was so noisy we could barely hear ourselves talk. We were also seated right next to the bathroom in the back, and there was an awful smell coming from it. I actually had to get up to ask someone to spray it down it was so bad. Not really a great birthday evening for my boyfriend...

This is the best meal I've had since moving to Columbus following nearly 20 years of living and dining in Northern California's Wine Country. Thanks Basi!

This was hands down the best meal we have had since our last visit to Basi a few years ago. We have no clue what took us so long to return, but you better believe we will be back ....tomorrow? This was our 6 mo wedding anniversary and from the wait staff, to the budino, it couldn't have been better. There are no words. You must go and experience it yourself!! We got the sautéed calamari, the soup of the day, shrimp and cauliflower, we split, we split the scallop dish that was an experience in itself with the flavor combinations of the sweet sweet potato, salty Brussel sprouts, and perfectly cooked jumbo scallops wrapped in prosciutto, and the eggplant parmesean. Thank you so much basi for an amazing night!!!

Basi Italia is the ultimate neighborhood restaurant. Located in the middle of a residential neighborhood just north of Goodale Park, Basi Italia is a quaint, cozy restaurant in which several of the patrons appeared to be regulars. While the atmosphere is very pleasant, the food is the reason to frequent Basi Italia. The salad, main course, and dessert are all outstanding. Regardless of the food ordered, one will not be disappointed.

I'm a regular at Basi but have to report a disappointing experience. Food which is always great was just average. Scallops way overcooked, brussell sprouts burnt, sweet potatoes overcooked and mushy....chicken dinner was good but odd accompaniments...Egg plant parmesan had way too much cheese. Disappointed with few pasta choices on the current menu..

Great ambiance. Very personable service. The space is very small so noise can be an issue but the food is amazing. We were there to celebrate a birthday and our server asked who the birthday person was as soon as he came over. Also very accommodating to gluten free restrictions.
