We went on a Monday evening and the restaurant was packed. The service was great and we loved the happened twist on Italian food. The dishes were all very good, each wth their own unique twist. I would definitely return.

Japanese inspired Italian food. What a surprise. Food was outstanding and service was great. Try the pasta made table side in a cheese wheel. Get there early and or make reservations. A gem of a spot in the Union Square area. Will definitely go back....More

The pasta are great made and the texture is amazing. i tried the Uni pasta, once again, pasta is great, but the sauce and combination taste isn't as amazing as those i tried elsewhere. The chicken is very well made.

We tried a range of pasta options and each of the dishes stood apart in taste. The Japanese chef out here surely knows his Italian food. The service is good.

We went to Basta Pasta following a recommendation from a friend and we were not disappointed. The place is small and they don't have too much tables then you need to reserve to have a spot. People were friendly and the food was really good...More

Not formal but don't go there like a total hippie. The clients are very respectable and classy. I wouldn't suggest shorts and tan top even in summer.
