I came with two of my daughters during a Presidents day weekend stay in the city. All three of our dishes were very delicious. I had the seafood risotto. I was worried it might be too heavy of a meal but it was perfect, fresh, not weighed down with heavy sauces and very tasty. Service was excellent. Would recommend to anyone looking for good Italian food in a cozy atmosphere.

Came for a friend's birthday and was worried because we were seated just outside the kitchen. But the table was bigger than most 2 tops and there was more noise from the group next to us than from the kitchen. Service was excellent and our server helped me plan the birthday surprise. Would definitely recommend and will return.

This was a great find on my trip to New York. An excellent dining place after a theater. High quality food, superb service. The atmosphere just right for a nice conversation with a dinner mate.

We had an amazing dinner. We were in town for a trade show and loved this place so much we went there to eat 3 of the 4 nights in Ny. Manager was extremely nice.

Basso56 was average. The food was not voluminous, but it was good. The one thing I really did not like at all is that our table was right next to the bathrooms. Just didn't sit well with me and because of that I wouldn't return.

Every time I eat there I like it better and better. The food is carefully thought out and delicious without a need to be flashy.
The service is friendly and helpful without being intrusive. I’ll be back.

You simply can’t beat the homemade pasta, fresh ingredients, flavors. Service is top-notch. Forget the theatre location, I’ll go here whenever I want a great meal (also not expensive).
