Basta was amazing! Great staff, awesome food. We got the burrata and bread to start, which was delicious and a definite highlight. We then had a nice, fresh salad followed by a Daisy pizza. The standout was the chicken, which was crispy and tender and pretty mind blowing. Nice atmosphere, but weird location in the middle of an apartment complex. We will definitely be back though! Really great food and wine.
This is a hidden gem in Boulder. We moved to Boulder after living in France for the previous 20 years, and this is the closest to a French\Italian neighborhood restaurant that we have found in the Boulder area. Their whole fish is like served on the Mediterranean.
Not really Italian, a bit out of the way, but really excellent food. The bread with burrata and the pizzas were amazing. The salads were great. Since we are from New Orleans the octopus was underwhelming, and the shortribs were really not $70-worth of delicious. Nonetheless a special place with great servers.
We had an amazing meal at Basta! From the service to the food, everything was perfect. The short rib was out of this world! I suspect they don't get a lot of young diners (our 10 month old was with us) but they were super friendly and welcoming to our family which we appreciated. We will definitely be back for special occasions.
Seriously blew away our expectations! Our friends said it would be amazing but we had no idea what talent existed here. So glad we made the trip from Denver! We fortunately dined at the chef's counter and were amazed by everything being prepared in the oven. Looking forward to coming back soon!
LOVE Basta. The pizzas are fantastic. The plain lemon, olive oil and lettuce salad is great. The half chicken is outstanding. We love the atmosphere and the food!
We live in Dallas and go to Basta every time we're in Boulder.
Dinner was delicious with everything cooked in the "fireball in the kitchen" according to our waiter, the stone oven. 1/2 chicken was crispy on all the skin, pizza perfect and sweet peas smokey. Campfire vanilla not to be missed ice cream for dessert!
Food options are minimal and it is extremely overpriced. You can go to Blackbelly or Spruce and get a better meal for the same price. There were no special drink prices. Cost us $80 for a couple of drinks and a pizza...oh did I mention that if you order a 2nd glass of iced tea that you get dinged for that?
Seems expensive for pretty basic pizzas. Could be better
The food and wine were good but canned beer cost $8 and the pizza is around $18 for a 1-2 person pizza. Their prices were generally too high. Also, they do not offer happy hour which I find to be unacceptable. Though, the pizza was tasty and our service was good.
