My friend and I split an appetizer, salad, and pizza, and it was all very well done. Creative, wonderfully executed, and beautifully presented. Server was very helpful and engaging. We had some trouble finding the restaurant, even with GPS. Signage could be better.

BASTA, from the Italian word for “enough,” is a boutique restaurant in an unassuming apartment complex in east Boulder offering supper seven nights a week. The kitchen is centered around single wood fire oven and a stone mill. Our beverage team curates a focused menu highlighting small production beer, natural wines and seasonal cocktails. We source from a variety of locales with significance placed on Colorado and West Coast farmers, ranchers, and fishers.
