We wanted somewhere different, tasty, and not crowded. We drove in from Texas straight to Basta and was not disappointed. YUM! The Burrata appetizer bread was good, the mushroom pizza with raclette was amazing as was the "peppers" pizza. Then we had dessert...we tried three: tiramisu, chocolate mouse, and doughnuts. The doughnuts have potato, chèvre, and orange as ingredients - sounds weird, right? They are amazing little beignet bites with Chantilly cream. Wow! The service is on point too. All the way around, great restaurant.
Superb food, fantastic service, reasonably priced. I can't believe we lived in Boulder for four years before discovering this place! Being from the Bay Area, we have had a hard time coming to terms with the quality of restaurants in Boulder. I often have to modify my recommendations by stating that a restaurant is "good, for Boulder." Not Basta. This place is good, period. My expectations were low coming in, because the acoustics are quite bad and it was very loud. But the service was great from the start and melted my normally grumpy mood. We shared the Kampachi Crudo, the Burrata Piada, the Cart-Driver Pizza, and the Half Chicken. Let me just skip to the chicken - oh my goodness! It's so yummy! Rich, juicy, and full of flavor. I'll probably order it every time I come here. The Piada, considering how simple it is, was also fabulous. The crudo and the pizza were very good too, but not exceptional. If I'd only tried them I might have placed this restaurant on the level of, say, Pizzeria Locale. You know: very good, for Boulder. But the Piada and chicken put this restaurant on another level, and I look forward to coming back to try their other dishes. Did I mention the service was terrific? Personable and very professional. The whole experience was wonderful.
For a potentially high quality restaurant I was dissapointed with what I saw. I had the same pizza at a movie theater. The good was way over priced for what you got. The meat was undercooked. The best thing was probably the bottled Coke.
