Basta Italian Restaurant
For 30 years, locals have become regulars and traveling foodies have raved. What can we say? We are flattered, grateful and more than ever, determined to exceed your expectations. For this reason we recently underwent a comprehensive renovation, updating and upgrading every facet of our restaurant, from design and equipment to menu and energy. We are so proud of the result and we know you are going to love it.
We invite you to join us to experience Basta for yourself. Our locally sourced, internationally influenced menu, AVPN Certified Neapolitan pizzas and robust wine offering will combine to create an unforgettable experience for you and your friends or family.
We look forward to serving you soon!
The host/man at the reception desk was very abrupt and rude. Not a good first impression for my friend who was there for her first time and celebrating her 60th birthday. With a personality like his, he shouldn’t be in a position greeting people.
Taking into consideration that many restaurants are having a difficult time finding help, our server, Justin (who was also tending the outdoor bar) was excellent. He was friendly, professional and proficient. Doesn’t get better than that! Our busboy was also friendly and on top of things. Food was great. Had a great time with our brother and sister in law, whom we had not seen in over a year due to Covid.
Slow service and poor food — everyone said their food was bland or overcooked.
Food and service always excellent . Went there for Mother’s Day. The only complaint would be wishing their regular menu was available
Outstanding food and a fabulous waitress Just love this place
Tuna wasnt delivered (available)
2 bolognese came to the table 1 had hardly any meat
1 had more pasta and meat
Both were on the hard side
Salmon was on rare side
This us why i dont go out kn holidays to eat.
Very loud music , small portions for the price ,
One of our favorite places. Had some amazing meals there. But last night—one of the worst meals we have ever had in a restaurant. To say the food was inedible would be an understatement. Was so disappointing. Waited over two hours for dinner to be served. Ordinarily would not care but the same was for the wine. And the food was just awful. Maybe it was a blip—but what happened to my favorite restaurant? Won’t be hurrying back anytime soon. I hope I am the only person who feels this way because it really was our go to place.
Delicious food, great atmosphere, and awesome outdoor patio space.
Cheese board was disappointing. Lacking variety and quantity. Our wait staff was fabulous. Disappointed that the manager rushed us after we had already cashed out and were clearly wrapping up. It was very unnecessary.
It was so loud - noise wise- that it took the enjoyment of the eating a delicious meal. Couldn't even speak to the person across the table.
Food and service was excellent. u need to try the veal parm.
Fabulous hidden gem in Edgewood. Food is fabulous and the staff is gracious.
Had a wonderful meal with co workers before heading to the Lantern Festival at
RWPZ. The food was excellent and service was quite timely.
Great Food! Better than I remember. Very busy, service is a bit slow but good. Highly recommend
I had the tortellini alle vodka. It was really mazing! I was really impressed by the service and the quality of the space. The outdoor area is really nice.
Service was excellent. Food was very good, ample portions and served warm.
Fantastic place for a special occasion! Amazing food, the ambience is perfect, and the service was absolutely exceptional. The food is ever so slightly overpriced for the size of the plate, but you're also paying for the experience which is totally worth it.
Very lovely establishment and service was excellent but it was very rushed.
Heather was an amazing waitress! Cannot wait to go back!
enjoyed our dining experience food was delicious service was great and would recommend to others.
Great night! We love Basta and will be back as soon as we can!
Food and serves were excellent. Little bit noises but highly recommend
Excellent service we had a really good waitress and food was awesome !!!!
Can’t count how many times we have been here. Always friendly, inviting and the food is delicious. Top marks across the board.
Accommodated food allergies. Haddock was fantastic.
Basta has become our "go to" place to celebrate special occasions. We used to dine "out" more frequently, but the pandemic prohibited most of that, but when we had a reason to celebrate, Basta employees made it special!
Staff here are great. Very focused on creating a inviting, relaxed environment. Sat at the bar (covid safety features in place). Started off with some fresh oysters and shrimp and perfect dirty martinis.
Great service! The pasta special the night we were there seemed more like an appetizer than an entree.
Missed you last year
The service and meals were excellent
We did not have to ask for anything!!!
Such a gem !!!
Great choice for ambiance, food and service. We will definitely be back!
A little too dark, but overall food was amazing !!
My husband and I have been to Basta several times. The food and service is always amazing. I felt as though the portions were much smaller than I experienced in the past. I was a little bit disappointed with this experience.
Outstanding experience - food, service, comfort, ambiance! Definitely one of our favorite spots.
Great food and wine selection! Nice service. Back patio area was lovely.
Great food and service!
An excellent meal with great service.
My wife and I have been there many times, always great. This time, not so great. First, they don't remember us, and we've been there at least 12 times. I ordered Sangria - watered down greatly. No taste at all. The bread is usually warm, crusty, this bread was cold, and had no taste to it. No crust, like store bought. My wife ordered Salmon with Brussel Sprouts as a side instead of the risotto. They brought out Broccoli Rabe. I ordered Chicken parm - tasteless, like it was a TV dinner. I'm not writing this to complain, as we usually LOVE Basta. I hope they're not losing their touch as I know it's very hard to be consistently great. Ambiance, and especially the music is awesome. Our waitress was wonderful.
