We do not go to Basta’s as often as we have in the past (the last time was February 2015), but with owner/chef Marco Frattaroli raising money for the Italian Red Cross in connection with the earthquake in Amatrice, it was all the incentive we needed to return. For one week he added the town’s pasta specialty, Amatriciana, to the... More

We took the advice of Heather who was tending bar and had two memorable dishes-- an albacore salad and a ravioli with salmon. Great flavors, very well prepared. Also solid wine list including good variety of wines by the glass. We'd definitely go back

We decided to go out for a cocktail & snack. Our antipasta plate was superb, four types of meats, a good selection of cheeses, balsamic caramalised onions & rustic bread from the best bakery in Portland, Kens ( just a few doors away). We ended up with the to die for, tiramisu.

We enjoyed ravioli and gnocchi with pork tenderloin, as well as caesar salad. We were impressed by the quality of the entrees in terms of freshness, taste and authenticity. Indeed, the gnocchi was...
