My friend and I split an appetizer, salad, and pizza, and it was all very well done. Creative, wonderfully executed, and beautifully presented. Server was very helpful and engaging. We had some trouble finding the restaurant, even with GPS. Signage could be better.

Great meal. Great service. We shared two pizzia sand they were both excellent. They have a great wine list. We ate at the bar and the bartender was great. I will for sure be going back.

We had not gone to Basta for a few years, and based on the 5280 restaurant ratings we stopped in last Saturday. Wow, we had a great dinner. The Piada with burrata cheese was amazing, a beautifully warm round shaped bread stuffed with roasted garlic...More

My friend and I showed up around 5:30 PM on a Saturday to find Basta's about half full. After being seated at an outdoor window seat that looked in on the bar, we settled in and ordered bread and pizza (who cares about carb overload...More

Perhaps it was because of all the hype as a "best of" for Denver/Boulder, but I was a bit underwhelmed by Basta. It's a very informal place that specializes in pizza. It's very good pizza and there are other good items on the menu too,...More
