I went with my wife and daughter. All the staff were very friendly and attentive. Homemade pasta and ravioli were excellent and the marinara sauce is very good and not too acidic. Portions were a reasonable size. We will go back!

My husband & I had a great meal at Basso56 on 6/23. We started with the fried calamari which was delicious. My husband had the veal parm & I had the monkfish special. Both of our meals were very tasty! The service was also perfect!

I dined in this restaurant once only and will never return. Food was pricey, not authentic in the true Italian sense of the word, and not good. I regretted not going to my old standby Pizz'Arte on West 55 St. where the food is always...More

My husband and I ate dinner here and were wowed by how beautifully understated it was. The food was flavorful and plentiful, the service was timely and personable, and the ambiance felt warm and cozy. Well worth the moderate price!
