My husband and I went to Basso56 to celebrate my friend's birthday. We absolutely loved our experience. The food was excellent, but our highlight was our server, Alfredo. He made our visit truly remarkable. Once again, thank you Alfredo!

Our first night in New York, we were tired and hungry. When Basso56 popped up as one of the restaurants a block away from our hotel, it was a no-brainer that we'll end up there for dinner. Basso is a tiny cute restaurant in what looks to be the basement of a building, but for a NY restaurant they use... More

We went here on a recommendation from a friend. The noodles in he spaghetti were delicious! Some of the best. However, my chicken Parmesan was lacking when I compare it to many other chicken Parmesan dishes I have had.

We are in NYC 2-3 times a year. My wife and I go to Basso every time we are in NYC. The food is always done to perfection and the wait staff go the extra to make sure we are taken care of. We make reservations and never wait more than five minutes. James

The service at this restaurant is exceptional. I ordered the bruschetta (not on the menu) and it was amazing. The wine was also very good. The atmosphere is a little plain but I would still highly recommend this place!

We were a party of four and all ordered different entrees. Each was excellent! And the service was fantastic. Our waitress was friendly and patient. None of us had any complaint or negative comment at all! See for yourself!

This place is right next to my work and I come here probably once 1 month if not more, they have a pre-fix lunch special $24.99 (3 course). Tried almost all of the menu, the food is incredibly always spot on and never disappoints. Very friendly service and good atmosphere. Would love to come here for dinner one day. Great... More

We came here for a post theater dinner, in a large part based on the reviews here. The service was excellent from the moment we walked in the door. All the staff was friendly and professional. We shared a few dishes (Frito Misto, the BEST Rigatoni Bolognese I have ever had, and the Veal Marsala). One of the finest Italian... More

We wanted to have dinner in New York near the theater district in or near Times Square before the theater. We wanted to have a menu with a broad variety of food as some people in attendance had dietary issues and others were vegans . The menu had a broad range of options with traditional Italian dishes such as pasta.... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
