Authentic italian with a modern twist


Dedicated to using organic, sustainable, and locally-sourced ingredients. 

Basta Trattoria opened on December 31, 2004. Our founder, Frank Criscuolo dreamed of Basta for decades, wanting to run a sweet little Italian trattoria just like the ones he and Claire visited in Amalfi, Atrani, Ravello, Capri, and Vietri Italy. A little restaurant using only the finest, freshest organic and sustainable ingredients, so fresh that a freezer would not be necessary. This dream became a reality the day Claire phoned Frank to let him know about a vacant space right next door to their award-winning vegetarian restaurant, Claire's Corner Copia. At first Frank was concerned about the size, "It's so small" but Claire assured him that "it is enough." Every concern was turned around by the word "enough" which is why when it came time to name the restaurant, Claire asked Frank "How do you say 'enough' in Italian?"

All of your food here at Basta Trattoria is cooked fresh to order. If organic zucchini is our vegetable for the night, then we cut it only when you order it - we do take freshness very seriously - you are worth it! This takes longer, but we promise that you’ll notice the difference. Thank you for your understanding.

Thank you for joining us and for supporting our mission to bring delicious, pure Italian foods and wines to our sweet little place. We hope you enjoy it and want to come back often. Grazie Mille.
