Expensive but great food
Basta is definition hidden gem: in a random hidden spot, without much fanfare. Yet they seem to do good, as they're often busy (ish).Food is excellent, both pizza and other things. Definitely upscale; small and intimate setting, friendly professional service. Great date spot!
Basta is the only restaurant in Boulder that can compete with Pizzaria Locale in the realm of pizza. With that said, their pizzas are still not quite as good. The toppings are less exciting and the sauces are less delicious. They are also more expensive than Pizzaria Locale. We had a great time dining at Basta. We got to sit at the bar and watch them make all the food. The brussel sprouts were simple, but really good. We got a few mixed drinks which were all OK, but nothing special. The service was friendly and the chefs talked to us a bit when they had a break, which was cool. I would love to go back and try some of their other dishes because they all looked amazing. Everything seems to be cooked in the wood-fired pizza oven, which give it a nice smoky taste.
