Basso 56 has some great italian fare in the heart of manhattan. Unpretentious dining room, a menu that is fun and adaptive, and wait staff that are excellent. I have eaten at Basso a handful of times and have always had a good experience.The wine list is also quite impressive, with a knowledgable staff to help you choose a bottle or two.

My husband particularly liked his Veal Scaloppine. I thought the sauce on my pasta with muchrooms and peas wasn't as good as it could have been.
The staff was very gracious, getting us a nice table and being very attentive.

Basso56 is a small restaurant, cozy, lively, but not too noisy. The food was very good and our waitress, Alexandria, was super. She recommended wines, brought samples. Their pastas are very nice, the duck was wonderful and desserts a treat. The tables for two are fairly close, but in this friendly place we had a nice conversation with a young couple at the next table. There were several birthday celebrations while we were there as well. Moderately priced. The meals are very well prepared and presented. Another one that will be on my list for future visits. Hope Alexandria is still there.

Good italian food at a reasonable price and very close to Times Square. Great choice if you are looking for a nice dinner in the area.
