The new location is a bit less charming but still ok. Staff is very friendly and flexible, they changed the main course of the lunch menu without any question or discussion, very much appreciated. The food is good, salad and pasta are good, the dessert...More

I'd give this place a miss. It looked promising at first. Near the hotel. up one flight from the street. Small dining room. Friendly greeter. We started with calamari. It was ok. just ok. Then we had salads. Wilted iceberg lettuce, a handful of garbanzo...More

Nice little restaurant and friendly service, however, we didn't particularly enjoy the food. The pasta of both the carbonara and the Amatriciana we ordered was good, but the bacon which was borderline burnt in both, didn't taste like bacon anymore and ruined the taste. This...More

Fresh ingredients, impeccably prepared. Recommend the buffalo mozzarella-the tomatoes tasted like summer. Cacio e pepe was delicious-pasta perfectly cooked with wonderful flavors. Not too expensive for Switzerland. Highly recommend. Good for business-small restaurant, not noisy.

The Trattoria Aroma is a fantastic gem in Basel. Its located in the heart of base, in a small alley. Don't let you fool by the entrance, as its a small door that does not reflect what you will find inside. Inside, you will find...More

The pasta didn't look home made, it just taste like at any normal restaurant. The carbonara was very thick and sticky, nothing special. We asked for the cheese which never arrived. All was really not with amore. Finally, the price was to high for that...More

Finding locations in Basel is not always easy and we struggled to locate this restaurant. Turns out we were actually on the street but hadn't located a street sign and there was a light out on the sign. Fortunately we looked up from the map...More
