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.
wonderful foot and quaint atmosphere!! great service and good drinks!
Excellent all the way around, European ambiance, personal attention and service, the way dining should be.
Perfect. Patio awesome
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!!
One of the best meals I have had at a restaurant. Creative and tasty food. Service was excellent.
This restaurant never disappoints...loved it as usual.
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...
Tiny place. Tight spaces. Hidden gem. All about the food.
Food and service were excellent. Once we placed our order, the food arrived quickly.
Amazing food and atmosphere, will definitely be back!
Excellent experience. Good food, great service.
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!!!
Absolutely stupid good food.
This was an amazing place excellent food with good staff, and fun to watch the kitchen
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.
Awesome food and service!
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.
A lovely staff. Best Italian cuisine in Columbus. Small, intimate and friendly. Not pretentious.
Basi Italia always meets expectations. All was excellent.
They do a lot of different foods with combined flavors you can't find anywhere else. The overall taste is not worth the price in my opinion. The venue is very small and felt as though I was having dinner with a another couple next to us (all that separated us was a structural pole). The outside patio looks like it would be nice in the summer time.
Went for restaurant week. The options I chose from the preset menu were satisfactory, not great. It won't deter us from going back though.
Hadn't been to Base Italia for many years, so Hubby and I decided to revisit during restaurant week. We went on a Tuesday night and it was packed. It is a small dining area with very little space between tables. As a result, it was very noisy. We enjoyed our food choices very much and got different items from the pre-fix menu to try. The service was impeccable. If you've never tried, it's a definite on your footy bucket list. Although it's name suggests Italian, it's more eclectic Italian. Only one pasta dish on the menu when we were there.
Incredible charming place....
We were well cared for and as usual - the food was fresh and delicious!!
Just fantastic- every time! Not much else to say. I dont go nearly as often as I would like, but have never been disappointed, only thrilled. Menu is smaller, but has something for everyone. Very intimate place that is just great value with great food!
Probably a top 3 favorite restaurant in Cbus for me and my wife. We went here after we got married last year and have loved it ever since. Food is incredible and reasonably priced. The only con is that seating is very limited, and on our last visit we ended up at a table for two beside a very annoying and loud couple right beside the entrance to the restrooms...other than that, every experience has been very good. P.S. try the beet salad and eggplant parm...two best things on the menu IMO.
The food and service were very good. However, the table was freezing cold!
