Though the “delicious” pies are “like a gift from Naples” , chef-owner Kelly Whitaker's modern Italian-inspired spot "hidden” among luxury lofts “definitely does more than pizza – try the wood-fired chicken” and burrata that “melts in your mouth” , along with “interesting, well-priced” wines and "excellent" cocktails too; bolstered by "friendly, professional" service, the dining room overlooking the open kitchen is small and "simple" but always “full of life."

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!

Pizza and lasagna were quite good. Fish was ok. A little on the pricey side but over all good experience. I do recommend trying it.

Nice and happening place, you may have to wait for a table. Staff is awesome, they talk to you very politely. I ordered a pizza for my friend and half chicken for myself and both of the dishes were awesome. The only problem is to find the location, according to Google Maps it will show you the destination on Arapahoe but you have to go inside peleton parking lot and besta door is there in the middle of the block.
