Had a wonderful meal hear on a Saturday night. Everything was excellent: food, atmosphere, service. Scallops and beef Carpaccio appetizers. Pasta entrée was delicious and highly recommend the tiramisu. We also had a great conversation with our server. Highly recommend.

“Lovely!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

When we arrived at NY airport someone told us that the Italian Restaurants weren't that good as in Europe. After we used tripadvisor to find an Italian which people seem to like we found Basso56. Even when it was very busy, the waitress offered us the opportunity to eat at the bar. This was the best choice we made that day. The (russian) lady behind the bar (We think she was called Helena) was so nice and helpful and gave us some great advise to order. We ate the clams as a starter and the 'Papardelle Con Gamberi e Punte Di Asparagi' & 'Spaghetti con frutti di mare' as a main course. The white wine which she recommend with these dishes was delicious. Overall the prices were good.

“Very good Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

We found Basso56 in tripadvisor and we were not disappointed.
The place is informal but nice, you find people in shorts and well dressed too.
THe menu has classical Italian dishes that are very well prepared. We had a spaghetti fruit di mare that was spectacular, one of the best I have had (including Italy) since the freshness and taste of the ingredients was evident. THe tomato sauce was superb, with a great flavor and "light" at the same time, delicious.
We also ordered a couple of salads that were very well prepared.
Service was perfect since the moment we arrive.
The waiter recommended me a Nero D'avola wine by the glass that was very good, however, it was warm. I noticed that the table next to us had the same problem with a bottle of wine.
Prices are decent taking into account you are in New York and in a good place.
I would had put 5 stars if it wasn't for the warm wine, but in general, the restaurant is a very good option.

Loved our meal, very well prepared dishes. Service was nice as well. Nothing bad to say, would go again if in the neighbourhood. Reasonably priced for the quality of food. Thanks for a great evening.
