A wonderful experience with my wife in one of many excellent eateries in Midtown. NYC is so competetive restaurants must consistently perform at a high level to survive. We enjoyed excellent food at very competitive prices. Good wine list, attentive service. Most satisfying evening. Highly recommend.

Having visited a 5 star french based restaurant the night before, I was looking for a different experience. I could not have been more pleased with Basso 56. It is a small but very quaint restaurant. The menu reads as an authentic Italian experience. Having visited Italy several times, the food we ordered more than met our expectations. Everyone at the restaurant from patrons to employees seemed to be genuinely enjoying themselves. My only complaint is that they do not offer the cannolli on Sunday. The pasta was fresh and homemade. The wine was reasonably priced. We enjoyed the evening and will return if given the opportunity.

We have been to Basso 56 between 8-12 times during the past 4 years and the reason why we keep on returning is their superlative food and outstanding service. Paolo runs this wonderful Italian restaurant near Columbus Circle that is our benchmark to fine dining thoroughout the city. I can't emphasize how wonderful the food tastes and is presented at this cozy establishment, only to be outmatched by the outstanding service that is consistently impeccable. Wioletta, Alexandra, and Alfredo have been our historically superb servers and they are courteous, polite, warm, friendly, and very knowledgeable about the dishes at this establishment. The wine list is varied and very nicely priced, the cocktails are great, and every entree we have ever ordered has been outstanding! We have been to many restaurants, but Basso 56 is our favorite and will continue to be our benchmark for fine dining. Keep up the great work!!!

The service was brilliant, neither our wine glass or water glass ever went empty. The Sommelier was quite knowledgable and pointed us to a great Borolo. We invited her to enjoy a tasting and she loved it as well! The muscles were really really good (a bit spicy for my wife) the burrata was exceptional. We had the homemade pasta with ox tail and it was to die for. We will definitely be back

Our first experience with Basso 56 was for a friend's birthday - party of 14 - perfect service, extensive wine list and superb entrees all around the table.
So when our daughter and son-in-law were traveling to NY, we eagerly suggested this restaurant for their 1st anniversary dinner.
Knowing their plans, we called ahead and arranged to have their meal taken care of and a bottle of champagne waiting for them. The service they received was prompt and attentive allowing their evening to be the special experience we had hoped. From their descriptions, the food was every bit as delicious as our large party had previously experienced.
Intimate evening or larger party - this restaurant is highly recommended.
