I had dinner here before watching the Tattoo. It was simple and I can’t vouch for the Pizzas as I didn’t have one. Minestrone was pretty average and used leftover veg - or seemed to be. Spaghetti carbonara was very bland. I asked for the...veggie version i.e. no ham but it was still very run of the mill. No desert as it was all ice cream from a preset menu. Including the Tiramisu. Service was very good though. Friendly and relatively quick.More

My Honey Bee & me were in Basel for the first time; we were tired from the flight and wandering around the city. As we strolled toward the train station we came across this treasure; neither of us were starving but felt like eating a...little something. We had pizza with anchovies & mushrooms; our waiter, David, brought us some thin sliced jalapeños. It was Oh So Fine; we had a local beer and finished with a glass of Suisse wine. The pizza was divine and our 1st night in Basel a Grand success! If I see you there I'll buy you a beer! ENJOY!More

They have lots of outdoor seating, the food is fresh, simple and very good. They have options for every palate including vegetarian. They have menus with English and the staff speak English as well. The service is leisurely not rushed and the prices reasonable especially...for Basel. They have a Swiss Beer on tap and a small but decent wine list. I would definitely recommend it.More

Reasonably priced for Basel. We all enjoyed our meals and service was attentive and personal . Comfortable seats and tables with linen tablecloths and napkins

The menu card is huge! I've had lunches there a couple of times and most of the times, I went for the pizza as this is something they do very well. The price is reasonable and the staff friendly (boss always goes from table to...table to ask whether everything is ok). However, sometimes, we had to wait a bit longer to get our meals. The restaurant also offer all the pizza for take-out for considerably less money.More

Had an overnight in Basel and we stumbled into a gem ! Had the pizza, thin crust . It was delicious. Selection of wine was excellent. David, our server couldn’t be more attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Subdued atmosphere;noise level low. Great location if...you’re making a connection.More

The service was caring and honest. The food (both Italian and local cuisine) was exceptional. Might just go back again before we leave Basel for our next stop on this vacation. Wonderful!

I've been here a few times and usually the food is good, but there have been times that I or my friends have been deeply disappointed with our meals.

Just wanted to take a moment to compliment the service we received from David in the evening last week. You guys were super busy, the restaurant was at capacity, and he was fantastic! I appreciate a server who does a great job, and he handled...our table of 8 adults and 2 children with a perfect display of relaxed competence. Well done! He also helped us to choose food and drinks which turned out to be delicious choices. We go out every week to diff places but this one is my new favourite restaurant with top service.More

Sat outside in garden area, very pleasant on a warm evening. Very impressive menu, partially in English but easy to understand. Food was tasteful and service was very good. Prices were fair and reasonable. If we return to Basel again we will surely eat here...once more!More
