“Fantastic Italian in NYC”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Best Italian outside Italy! The food was of a very high standard and waitress very informative,because of her enthusiasm I picked all specials off the menu. Washed down with a lovely toffee tasting dark morietti bottled lager. It a nice atmosphere and somewhere to go for a special meal, enjoy.

We enjoyed our evening at Basso56. The atmosphere is intimate and the food was fabulous. Our waitress was very professional and we were never rushed.

Went here for our 35th wedding anniversary dinner and were really impressed by the food and service. The atmosphere is great and we really felt right at home. Check it out while in NYC!

“Best Italian we've had outside of Italy”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

We spent 5 days in New York in September and this was the best meal we had. We were so lucky it was on our block, and came highly recommended by the hotel. The staff were friendly, and the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere, but it's the food that makes it. We started with a crab cake to share - it was all crab and no filler, we also were given bruschetta and olives, both of which hot the spot, we followed with a venison ragu with tagliatelle and a wil boar ragu with taglietelle. The wine was reasonably priced and one of our favourites from Puglia. Seriously good food and a really good price! Highly recommended.
