Delicous Dinner and friendly staff

We had a delicious dinner for reasonable prices. Good price-quality ratio. The desert was great! The staff is very friendly, personal atmosphere. As the Restaurant is quite small which is really good, not as noisy as other restaurants. We enjoyed the evening.

Interesting place for those who want to try some "Roman" food, which I know very well. Most dishes do have a certain Roman touch to it. But it`s quite expensive...

As the title says, the starter was good, but the rest just average. you can easily find better Italian restaurants in Basel.

We had a very delicious dinner, great food, very friendly staff. The restaurant is on the 1st floor of a house, nicely small place. Will definitely return!

lucky to get a cancelled reservation we had a most wonderful meal. attention to detail was prominent and the food was authentic and perfectly cooked. Friendly service made us want to return the next night, sadly for us they were fully booked for several nights hence. No surprize, top marks!

Authentic Italian restaurant with excellent pasta. My Carbonara dish was prepared with homemade rigatoni, Roman Guanciale bacon, egg and pecorino. That's unusual in Switzerland, but really tasty! Prices are a little bit high, even though the pasta is really fantastic.

I was considering either 3 or 4 points for this restaurant but choose to rate it with 3 points because of their little choice (and only expensive ones) of starters. We wanted to order a ordinary green salad but this was not possible, instead we ordered the Caprese for 21 Chf. The primi piatti was a good portion and really... More

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.
