Reviews for Basta Italian Restaurant

comfortable atmosphere – I went to Basta on a girls night out after much deliberation... I hadnt been there in years, not since Bobby Gaudiana was the chef, and even though it was not nearly as comparable as it was then, I was also not disapointed. The menue was creative and the food was quite good, our server made the night fun and i was glad that Basta had not lost its friendly atmosphere. All in all it was an excellant evening.

Best Italian food in R.I. – Outstanding food and excellent cocktails. THE BEST Veal I have tasted in years. Thier fish dishes are usually topped with lobster, shrimp or scallops. MMMM. I don't know where they purchase thier meats but from the 2 ' pork chops to the steaks you get outstanding cuts. The pasta dishes are out of this world delicious. CHING CHING to BASTA'S

Editorial Review by Christy Buena – Authentic Italian cuisine is served at the restaurant that offers lobster bisque, lamb and veal entrees in a comfortable atmosphere.

Excellent Italian food. Rhode Islands best kept secret. The staff, especially Giuseppe and John are exceptionally superior. This restaurant is a AAA++++++, a must visit for everyone.

Wonderfully tasteful. – Ample parking and the attentive staff compliment the always superb food. Usually crowded and can get noisy at times but all that pales to the wonderful food.
