“An absolute MUST in Basel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

This is by far the best place to eat in Basel. We got the last table by the door, but it was no problem. Very friendly owner, helpful staff and wonderful food. We had the day menu: bruschette with olives, peppers and tomatoes - fresh, crispy and delightful. Than tagliatelle with chanterelle mushrooms - simple and exactly al dente. Gamberi with grilled vegetables - the best gamberi I have ever had. Torta di limone - light and refreshing. A bottle of Verdicchio was the right choice to match it. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to anybody who wants to experience real italian cuisine and spend a nice evening in the centre of Basel.

“A great evening, fantastic food, super service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

I was taken to this restaurant on a date and had a fantastic time! The ambience was just right, the food fantastic, and the attention from the staff was the right balance of dedicated service without being intrusive. Highly recommend!

“Best experience in trattoria aroma”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

Went to aroma on suggestion, with picky clients. The whole evening went fantastic - best Italian food in a long time, great venue (not too big, very well designed, better reserve in advance), wonderful, personal and attentive service, ALL food made right there by the chef, down to the incredible desserts. Came back with a different group right next evening. From now on my favorite place in Basel for sure.

“Nice Italian but food overcooked”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

Tried this restaurant based on Tripadvisor reviews together with a friend. I had the oven baked aubergine and was disappointed that it had been overcooked. My friend had a pasta dish which was very nice. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very good and the service was good.

“Good Place to go in Basel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

We went to Aroma in April during our visit in Basel. I love the atmosphere as it is a small restaurant with around 8 tables. People are nice. We tried various appetizers and hand-made spaghetti. It is delicious!!! I must go Aroma again when I have chance to visit Basel again.
