    Great Service

    My daughter recommended this place.... not in best location but convenient to midtown... the Service was exceptional, the price was very reasonable - good un-inflated wine list. The mozzarella appetizer was one of the best ever had. The meal was good -service GREAT.

    Authentic modern Italian

    We (4 business guys from San Jose) ate here on July 30 after having read reviews on this site. 4 thumbs up; really excellent food at realistic prices. We had salads, entrees, 3 large bottles of spring water and a bottle of red wine for $200. The restaurant also served bruschetta on the house as well as bread. My colleagues all requested that I must post this review as the meal was so good. There were several Specials on and the waiting staff, were extremely knowledgeable about the ingredients of each. I tried the evening special spaghetti with a baby clam (described as smaller and sweeter than vongole), cherry tomato and basil sauce - excellent! My only slight marking down on the evening was that we were never offered dessert or coffee although the staff could have been put off by the amount of paperwork we had spread across the table at that point for our informal meeting. For someone who has spent a lot of time in Italy on business (twice a month for 12 years) this was a very good culinary echo of what I would expect to be served at a good quality restaurant in Italy. Basso 56 was definetly a great find and you won't be disappointed.

    We loved Basso56!

    We visited on June 23, 2007 and everything was excellent! I almost didn't want to write a review out of fear that we would not get a table next time we are in town! The service was first rate, we loved the atmosphere, but the food stole the show. We shared an appetizer of baked smoked mozzarella & speck- wonderful! There were only a couple bottles of Pinot Nior, our knowledgeable server helped with the difference between the two - we enjoyed our selection & it was fairly priced at about $40. For my main course I had a pasta crepe filled with lobster confit, my husband had a special of seafood risotto. My husband enjoyed the risotto (it was missing the promised scallops, but still good) but could not keep his fork out of my dish--the flavors were amazing! My only regret, I could not squeeze in dessert and they do not pack them to go. If this restaurant were in my town I would not be able to stay away every night!

    Very good service

    We had dinner from 7 to 9. It was very nice and not crowded. We were seated immediately and the waitor was very attentive and helpful. We ordered Tagliata Di Portobello as Appetizer and then Salmone Alla Griglia and Fileto Di Dentice In Brodetto. The fish was well cooked - but the flavor has nothing special. The Tagliata Di Portobello had a special flavor though. My favorite part is the olive oil - great with the bread. I will definitely go there again.

    Great Restaurant

    Saturday,June 2,2007. We were 4 for dinner. We went to Basso because of the reviews in menupages. and the only minus was the level of the noise-but it was Saturday. We had specials of Wild Striped Bass, Osso Bucco, a marvelous rissotto. The host was charming and helpful. Freebies of olives, etc. were terrific. Atmosphere is warm, contemporary. We heartily recommend Basso and will go back soon.
