Stopped by for a business lunch with an American colleague and we were both impressed by the flavor, simpleness and color of our sushi! A must try if you are in the neighborhood

We based our choice on Trip advisor and once more it didn't fail. The quality of the food is really good and the presentation of the dishes is various and attractive. We took the ricciola carpaccio and it was amazing. Very good also the seared mixed carpaccio. We tried a couple of rolls and were very tasty. The warm dish... More

Small place, small and not so comfortable tables, some of which squeezed against the wall. Poor quality food. Nicely presented, but not so good as the reviews hint. A few examples from last night dinner: sushi rice was too sticky, flambe carpaccio was swimming in an oily sauce, bigne starters had a really weird and debatable combination of tastes, chocolate...

My wife an I had an excellent meal at Basara tonight, in fact it was amazing. We sat at the Sushi Bar and watched the chefs create exceptionally high quality dishes of many varieties, all gorgeous to look at. We had a Sashimi sampler (chefs choice), the spicy salmon tartare and the lobster avocado roll. All of them were outstanding.... More

A table at Basara Sushi restaurant in Milan was booked for me. Despite being a vegan, I love Sushi. More animated than a normal Sushi restaurant, some of the food was prepared in front of us by entertaining staff who seemed to thoroughly enjoy their work. There wasn't tofu but the staff thought of interesting and new vegan Sushi for... More
