This is off the beaten path, so you may not have heard of it before, but it's right at a tram stop, so extremely easy to get to. (Parking is a bit difficult in the neighborhood, so I strongly recommend the tram).

The carpaccio was the best I've ever had. Magnificent.

We ordered their daily menu, but I don't like tira misu so we asked if it could be changed for the pannacotta, and it was no problem. The pannacotta was amazing.

I would definitely recommend this for a quiet evening of good food.

This restaurant has two gems: The owner and cook , Enzo, and Brunella who serves with love and a smile and professionalism, even if the restaurant is full!

We always wonder why Michelin has not given them a star and if you hesitate because it's in Kleinbasel:
The tramway is outside and so you can enjoy the wonderful small wines from Southern Italy.
The Decor is modern but still cosy with candles and even if there are some small groups...you are fine, accoustic is excellent!

BUT NOW TO THE CUISINE:

- They have, in the evening, a meat and a fish menu, which makes it easy if you are undecided , two of us had this and it was A DREAM: The Carpaccio, beef and calamares was something you have never tasted! (three course)
- Our guests had salad and again...fantastic!
- Main dish in the menus was ..just great and you have enough but not too much time between the starter and the main course. Meat and risotto... fish just a dream...
- guests had home made Pasta...and all of them said..it was with a sauce they had never had that excellent way.
- Dessert...BEST TIRAMI SU IN TOWN....
the others had the chocolate melted cake or ...Sorbet...

Wine: The card is small but we had the Primitivo and our guestes a wine from Calabria..and the sun..and the taste and a holiday feeling made us all happy!

We can, again recommend this restaurant! This is true Italian, Enzo and Brunella are so talented that we are convinced that this restaurant - and we travel a lot, will be among the best in Basel soon!

IMPORTANT:They serve gluten free pasta and bread and dishes!!!!!! (Not ours but it makes it a place for all
-you better book a table in the evening and choose a table in the corner if you are a small group. The restaurant is becoming a hidden but knwn gem...

We are looking forward to summer time..in the wonderful garden!
Grazie per questa serata!

It seemed to be a tipical Italian family restaurant. Kind and friendly service, very limited menu but whatever we got were great!! Even if we did not get we ordered, but still! :) The manu is in very poor English teanslation, maybe the discriptions are mixed with other meals as well, but who cares? :) You better speak Italian as the staff, but it is nor crucial if you like Italian kitchen! :)
