I've come to bacco for years and my family and I have always loved your food at service. within the past six months the prices have sky rocketed and the service has plummeted. The other day our waiter completely forgot about us and another waiter had to help us out. The prices and service was rediculous and I willl not... More

Foodie delight! My dad and I ate there after my dad saw a video of the place that was done 2 years ago about pairing beers with pizza. My dad has a special interest in wood-fired ovens as he has built his own and cooks great pizzas out of it each summer & fall. For dinner, we shared the wood-fired... More

Love this little place! The atmosphere is hip and welcoming, the service is always great. The food is beautiful. Simple, clean, wholesome and wonderful. The pizzas are the stars of the show but the appetizers are wonderful. The Duck Rillette and Burrata are fantastic along with the cheese ans salumi boards. Even the salads are great!

Always of the highest quality whether it is their super thin crusted (flash cooked in their 900+ degree oven), the whole fish (only place in Boulder to have a whole salt water fish) or the hand cured specialty meat... Pizzeria Basta is truly a hidden gem. BTW, the house wines are exceptional and so are the desserts.

I have lived in boulder for years and didn't know about this place, I recently visited to celebrate my birthday and the food is by far some of the most impressive I have ever eaten in and outside of Colorado. the pizza is exceptional, they make their own fresh cheese and crust and their meats come from new york. I... More

I was so excited to try this place because of the great online reviews, but unfortunately our experience didn't measure up to the hype. Our waitress was nice, and recommended some meat and cheese starters, she also informed us that the oven can only hold 3 pizzas at once so not everyone in our party would be able to order... More

Great place for quality pizza. What a wonderful meal! The cart pusher pizza was wonderful. The oysters were also very good. I would recommend this place for sure!

Westword voted Pizzeria Basta as the best in the Denver Metro area and lunch today proved it. I am a bit of a pizza snob and this is by far one of the best Neopolitan-style pizzas I have ever experienced (very much on a par with the best found in NYC). We went in for lunch (they only open for... More

Basta has an amazing menu to include what I think is the best pizza in BOULDER. The roasted vegetable salad and pork belly is my favorite. Off the beaten path, this place is a treat and a place to be frequented. As of recent, I notice they've started serving coffee in the morning with a few food items. Go to... More

The food is fabulous. The pizza is just like you are in Italy. The prices are high, but well worth the treat.
