Great place

went here for dinner on a regular friday evening. We were pretty glad to have a reservation, since the place was fully booked. The service was excellent the food was probably the best Italian style you can have in Basel.

I visited on a business trip to Basel. Colleagues of mine and I had dinner. The food was very good and the restaurant staff very attentive. It was a nice atmosphere where we could enjoy conversation.

We ate here a couple of years ago and had fond memories of both the professional service (from Mrs Giovanni herself) and the excellent food. This particular experience was VERY different. After being mocked at the door for making grammatical errors in our introductory comments in German, we were shown to our table while the mocking continued in front of... More

Small restaurant that usually requires a reservation to get a table. We were willing to wait 20 minutes based on reviews and we were definitely not disappointed! The food was delicious, service was very friendly and efficient, and the atmosphere was nice but not too formal. Will definitely return here again.

Trattoria aroma is really good restaurant. We had a delicious dinner for good price and staff was nice and really cordial. We had some vegetarian options as appetiser and main plus dessert was really tasty. Excellent place for a nice dinner with friends and family.

Went here with 12 colleagues and most of us for the first name. A hidden gem near the main square. Worth a visit. A small place that you should probably reserve. The starter antipasti was exceptional. Could have been happy with just that. Had a wonderful fish as a second - cooked and spiced to perfection. Service was friendly and... More

The trattatoria is a bit hard to find as it is up a flight of stairs and kind of off the side of a main street but it is worth it. We went for a Saturday lunch which was apparently a new thing for the restaurant. Inside is quite nice and they have placed the tables far enough apart that... More

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...
