    After reading all the raving reviews we decided to go. The restaurant is average, nothing to rave about. Food quality is good not great, service was average. We won’t recommend and won’t be going back, there are so many really good Italian restaurants around, Basso 56 is not!

    Very disappointing experience. I have been to Basso about 4 times now and enjoyed it, though the time before this last time was also not great. The food was awful- chicken dish was tough and I left half of it. I brought friends to Basso as I had raved about it but I don't think I will return. Ashame because I like the owners.

    The overall attitude of the staff was they did not want to be there and wanted to go home. By 9 30 they had shut off everything but the lights and the staff had its coats on waiting to leave while the last diners were finishing. Basically, Soviet era service in a restaurant with a pretty good chef.

    We have been going to Basso for years; first in the City and now in Chappaqua. The food is always amazing. From the items on the menu to the daily specials it is consistently great. The service is always warm and welcoming. It always feels like you are having dinner at a good friend’s house. It’s a treasure!
