My fish dish was amazing. Wife's pasta was quite tasty too. Would go back for sure. Price was very reasonable for the quality.

Four of us had a pre-show dinner on a Saturday night. The food was delicious. My partner had one of several specials, a seafood risotto that was excellent. I had the fettuccini with spinach and mushroom, equally delicious. My friend had a ravioli that was wonderful.
Our Russian waitress was very attentive and service was great. Very pleasant, relaxed atmosphere.

Picked this place as it was close to the theater and was the top choice on tripadvisor. Was happy with my visit. The service was friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was casual yet elegant. My friends loved the sangria. The lamb ragu, recommended by our server, was tasty and plentiful. Overall a very pleasant visit and I recommended it for good Italian food near most of the theaters in NYC.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Basso 56. The ambiance is very nice, the food was great, and the service was excellent. Our waiter suggested a wine that was perfect. Close to the theater district.

We were not blown away by the food, but overall it was a very pleasant dining experience. We were seated at one of the best tables near the kitchen and was very comfortable. We had home-made Sangria which was terrific and was given tasting of a few wines before ordering one. Portions were plentiful, especially for NYC. The meals in terms of taste, were good quality same as you might expect at any decent Italian place. For taste, solid standard fare, not exceptional.

We were a party of 2, had 4 drinks, 2 apps, 2 entrees and bill was $128 not including tip. Nice vibe for a small restaurant, excellent service. Good time. If food was great, I'd be going nuts.
