A very unassuming place on the 1st floor. Close tables and the window tables are best for couples. Food menu is limited but whatever is served is wonderful. The Zabaglione is mouth watering and to die for. Probably the best Italian food in Basel

My visit to Aroma was 'functionally' OK and there were a lot of groups of people in there who seemed to be having a good meal experience. I suppose some restaurants feel better than others for solo diners.

Choice: disapointed to see very limited menu with mainly pasta dishes. I would have expected more diversity including risotto or some special dishes from a particular Italian region. Value: overpriced compared to other Italian restaurant in Basel Food: my dish was pretty good especially if the pasta was home made (but couldnt determine) but the portion was way too small.... More

It is a nice Italian restaurant located in a second floor in a building in old town of Basel. Everything was good but not unusual- what you get in a lot or restaurants in Italy. The prices were almost double of what you pay for the same food and wine in Rome!

My final night in Basel I was solo and looking for a good meal after a few authentic Swiss dinners. It was a beautiful night so I did not mind the walk along the Rhine across the bridge to a neat little area of town. It is on the second floor which took me a minute to find. It was... More

We had dinner here by tripadvisor app. The menu is very limitted. Very few to choose. But the main problem is the taste and the price. Very very average taste at over price. Don't waste your time and money here. The night before we had dinner at 5 signori and it is Superb. Worth every cent. The taste is wonderful.... More

Aroma is a place where you can get great italian food and not the tourist type of food you normally find in an italian restaurant. All the dishes are hand made with great variety of tastes. I have been there many times and each time I am pleasantly surprised. Highly recommend you try it. The owner Stefano is always friendly... More

Naturally, the good Tripadvisor reviews draw crowds to this semi-authentic small Italian restaurant. But even the very good food and the friendly and attentive service did not make our meal enjoyable. The level of noise in the room makes it impossible to lead a normal conversation. So if you are with your sweetheart or with business partners, you better avoid... More
