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."

Excellent food and service. I was met at the door by the hostess who opened the door and welcomed me with a warm smile. I chose to eat at the bar as I was dining alone. Rober, the mixologist, was friendly, helpful and interesting as we talked about the cocktails he was crafting. He had a deft hand and an impressive grasp of the various components he was using. Other staff were attentive to guests and friendly as well. A hidden gem that is worth the search.

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!
