It might have been an off night, but the food was mediocre and everything was very salty.
Our server was really not at the top of his game. Drinks/wine were overpriced.
Our first time there with the kids for an outdoor lunch for Father's Day. The entire team was incredibly welcoming and attentive to all our needs (and our energized Heads Up game:)). We can't wait to come back!
Friendly warm greetings and wonderful service. Food was outstanding.
Tables were a little close together so it was pretty loud and we were all talking over each other but overall everything else was fantastic and we will be back. A fantastic addition to the Westport dining scene!
Great food and service. Diverse and interesting menu. BUT very unhappy that they have instituted no corkage policy. That should be amended.
Loved the new location. Hadn’t been since the move from Norwalk. Perfect setting.
Food - basic, nothing elaborate, but good
Drinks - ok, overpriced for what you get
Service- good, but inconsistent between the servers
Overall- the place overpriced for what they offer.
In addition there is a $25 per person cover charge for the band (not all days) that seems excessive
Minor confusion and delays on our orders, but we understand the difficulties restaurants are having as we begin to ‘reopen’. We LOVE Basso and will return often!
What a great night! We sat in the newly added ally area and it was delightful. Our server and asst server were young and positive, polite & professional and it made our experience better. The suggested gnocchi and tuna coca were fantastic! We'll definitely be back and with friends.
Welcoming hostess and wonderful waiter! Service was timely and the food was delicious. We'll be back!
Best food & service! We keep going back again and again.
Ribeye way over cooked but they made a new one and the overall dinner was great
Wonderful quality and wonderful service a great place to go
I really tried to like it but the service is abysmal (yet very friendly). Seems like a lot of new staff that don't really know the menu nor how to provide a service. Adventure. Tables super cramped. Noise level very high- impossible to carry on a conversation.
Good food, great custom coctails, staff was very friendly, but should be more organized.
Overal, we had good time.
Great food, service, and wine. We’ll definitely be back!
Everything was wonderful, gracious and delicious. Thrilled to have Basso in town and will go often!
So, truth be told, we went with our pickiest friends, they always have issues where we sit... too warm... too cold...
They loved it! We knew they would. Everything is delicious on the menu, the cocktails are sublime and the staff is fantastic. We've loved their paella, cavatelli, and the salads are so great. Highly recommend Basso as long as it doesn't get too crowded and we can't get a table!
Food is incredible. Service was totally on point.
The food was delish. After a rough start, the service was as well. The wine selection was very good, and the specialty cocktails were amazing. The sangria only had oranges in it - which was a disappointment. The tapas was so good. We ordered bread with dipping sauce, Brussel sprouts, grilled calamari (the most amazing), and eggplant croquettes. We also ordered a few main dinners. Then we finished with their sorbet, a great selection of tea, and coffee drinks. We will be back.
loved the food. Delicious. Great staff. Wine and ambiance
Will definitely go again
Food and drinks are great with incredible service, everyone is so SO kind, accomodating and knowledgable.
Great food selection and great custom cocktails! And they were patient with us as we were late for our reservation.
They did not have our reservation so we would up sitting at a table that was directly beneath speakers.
Food was fabulous, guitarist very enjoyable and service was good. Our only complaint (minor) is having to look at the menu on our phones. it wouldn't even load on my husband's phone so we had to share mine. Nuisance.
Loved Basso when it was in Norwalk and am delighted it is closer in Westport now!
Nice restaurant for a casual business lunch. A little something for everyone.
Great food, although our first pizza was very burnt and it had to go back . We were there fir the jazz band but unfortunately had to sit indoors due to
The rain, this made it quite noisy . But otherwise , great food, friendly staff and good price
This restaurant was such a disappointment. The people who work there are rude and very confused. Please save yourself the time and go somewhere else that you’ll actually enjoy
This used to be a superior restaurant - especially the food! We have been at this location twice before last night and it was better. Our friends’First time =they were disappointed. Hopefully, Basso a will get back to being the Superior restaurant we knew!
It was too cold in there for me. Wish one of the doors was closed.
However the arepas were delicious and I’m looking forward to having them again; especially the chicken salad!
Delicious and excellent service! We look forward to returning!
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here and plan to go back for dinner. An extensive menu made it hard to choose which delicious thing to get! The interior is freshly remodeled and very nice.
Love it, will be back soon!
Everything about this beautiful new restaurant was wonderful.
Beautiful space with plenty of fresh air. Delicious meal!
Great dinner once again. Paella was the best I’ve had around here. All food was great. The sangria needs a little work IMO
Excellent food. Attentive service. Charming atmosphere. Fair prices.
Great first time meal. Will return. Often. Now I'm just added characters to meet the minimum.
Great food and service!
