    As usual, our dinner and the dining experience at Quanto Basta was superb. This visit, we were seated in the waiting area near the front, with views of the street. It was surprisingly pleasant. Our server Bella was outstanding. Since it was our anniversary, we each received a complimentary glass of Prosecco. The evening was a hit.

    Despite no specials, no seafood entrees, only three beer options, and they charge for bread, we still liked it a lot. Live music was a pleasant surprise. Can honestly say that it's as good as some of the better rated Italian restaurants in Wilmington.

    Celebrated our wedding anniversary with dinner at Quanto Basta, we were very pleased with our meal and the service. Food and drinks came out quickly, the food was exceptionally good and reasonably priced. I recommend Quanto Basta and plan to return again soon.

    Awesome food! One of my favorite places to eat. Downside is it’s way too loud to talk to the person you’re with across the table. So if noise level is a concern I’d keep that in mind.

    First visit- arrived at 8 on time! Ordered drinks and appetizers - appetizers came at 8:30 before beverages! Claimed the internet was down…. Cantalloni was supposed to be mushrooms, chicken, spinach and Asiago- one bite of chicken and spinach - full of mushrooms only! Caprese was so disappointing! Short rib was good. The way the restaurant is set up servers are rushing around your table- wasn’t relaxing at all. Won’t return- too many awesome places in town!

    We sat on the "quiet" side of the restaurant (away from the bar area) and found the ambiance wonderful. Elegant, delicious dining with reasonable pricing. Excellent selection of wines. Wednesday was also apparently half price on wine bottles under $100.

    The closest to real Italian cuisine in the Wilmington area. Their signature white bolognese sauce is unique and delicious. So is their olive oil cake dessert . Excellent service. Just a little too much noise when it’s full . Definitely we will return again and again .

    Good service, food came out fast but could have been hotter. I have had better meals at this restaurant, maybe because it was earlier in the evening but ziti and meatballs were lukewarm. To the server’s credit they discounted those items.

    Quanto Basta has quickly become my favorite Italian restaurant in Wilmington. The atmosphere is lovely and the food is always delicious. My favorite is the baked ziti, and they make a killer espresso martini and French 75. Definitely try the brownie affogato and the olive oil cake for dessert — both are soooo good!

    It was our third time in the restaurant and we have always been pleased. My only negative is that the wine list is very limited in white wine by the glass. A few more options would be nice. But we will be back.

    Cuanto Basta is located in a great, convenient downtown location. The ambience is elegant. The service could not have been better and the food was delicious and fairly priced. The noise level were we sat was low making conversation easy and comfortable. I’d highly recommend it.
