The pizza is fantastic but I think there are many choices that do not include a pizza. Their menu changes I think regularly based on what is in season or of interest to the chef/owner. They have the highest quality ingredients such as the burrata cheese with artichoke/roasted farm bread toast points to spread it on, the roasted vegetable salad, we had the calamari appetizer that included a light tempura like squash blossom ... yum! The pizza oven is 800 degrees ... I like the crispy, maybe some burn on the bottom crust and the toppings are delicous. They have a wine steward that will talk with you about their wine selection and he was fun to talk to and we selected a great wine ... they have a small(ish) wine list which includes Colorado wines and I think all regions/varieties are well represented. I think it is a creative delicious menu with lots of choices that might surprise you. Visit and enjoy!

We love Pizzeria Basta - the Pizza's are the best in town - authentic and delicious. The Pizza base is simply delicious and the meats are made in-house. The wine selection and beer selection are also extensive. Delicious desserts and great service.

The pizzas are small and don't have many toppings which can be good because it helps keep the crust crispy. There is a good pasta dish on the menu. We were really excited to try it. It came out and was so small. Yummy but overpriced. I really appreciate good quality food (slow food movement, Alfalfa's grocery kinda person), but the price was pretty over the top. For people that have a lot of money, it works and will give you a "hip" vibe.

Loved the neapolitan pizza here - slightly more unique flavors/ toppings and the crust isn't quite as good as Pizzeria Locale, but the service and atmosphere makes up for it and thus it ranks as the best place to go for pizza in Boulder! The restaurant itself is laid back and you feel like you can just hang out - no pretentiousness at all!
