Service was rather average, could be friendlier. Only capo said good bye. Food was ok but not top class in Basel. High priced.

Party of 10, very good service initially, food was prompt and good. The lasagne was not great some said. I had Saltimboca and had no complaints. It is not cheap but it is good. The downside. Teh men's toilet is evil. One other those waterless things. Such a pity to have such a rancid thing close to food. No2...normally after... More

Good pizza at a reasonable price. Staff are freindly and the other choices on the menu are also good. The location is tucked away behind the tram station so this isntba place you stumble upon. Having said that, follow the signs and you less than 1 minute away. My advice... worthy of a visit if you like good itslian pizza.

Went as a solo diner early in the week. Restaurant was quiet but maybe to do with the football as well as the fact it was somewhat tucked away. Still was welcomed in (not always the case for a solo diner) and service was friendly and quick. I had a steak which was a very good cut but overcooked (having... More

The Crew is the same since years. This speaks in favour of Management. One of the best italian food Restaurants in Basileia (Basle). Try the tagliata!

We had the best Italian here while staying in Basel. We went with a large group and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal!

We came here for a quick meal and there was nothing much to complain about but nothing much to rave about. We enjoyed our food but it was nothing special. The atmosphere was a bit flat as there was no music which we enjoy. Overall, friendly staff and a decent meal, that's it. Not far from the train station. Wine... More

Beautifully decorated. Lovely atmosphere. Service friendly. Tasty and well presented Northern Italian food, but not outstanding. Lots of pizza options on the menu, but they are average at best. I appreciate they probably don't specialise in pizza (and I consider myself to have a lot of knowledge of what is a good Italian pizza). The owner and chef, Dino was... More

As we used to do in many italian restaurants, we ordered Antipasti: the worst I ever had, very bad quality. The main course was spaguetti, not bad but not great for that price. The surprise came when we decided to pay using the Prozent Buch, the waiter said we had to comunicate it to her before ordering anything... which is... More

"Da Rob's" as we knew it back in the 1980's has undergone a transformation! It was a regular Friday night 'watering hole' for quite a lot of (largely) English-speaking office workers, and the bar/waiting staff were always tolerant and welcoming to their 'regulars'! Back about 30 years ago I remember it as being quite dark, crowded and noisy, but on... More

Dear JJ-Whippet53 We love these types of stories – a real trip down memory lane! We have just celebrated our 40th birthday and we have tried hard to evolve over the years to meet the expectations of our regulars but also our new guests. We look forward to seeing you again soon (do not wait 30 years!). More
