A good restaurant in NYC is not hard to find -- a good restaurant that is also unique, however, is hard to find ... but look no further than Pasta Basta. Here they meld Italian and Japanese cuisine in a most unusual and successful way. Perhaps the best indication that the odd combination is a success is that there were so many interesting and good sounding items on the menu that we will definitely be returning just to see what the dishes taste like. By NYC standards the prices are reasonable -- the service was friendly and attentive as well. Reservations are needed as this place is apparently on the tourist radar screen.

This restaurant never ceases to be perfect in every way. The food, the service, the presentation and the special and interesting combinations. It is one of our favorite places that we don't get to go to often enough living outside the city.

The food was good, and interesting...it was Italian with a decidedly Japanese influence. I'd never have thought to put them together, but the avocado-radish salad was fascinating and totally delicious!

The food in this place is just heavenly. Sure, it's not cheap if you go from appetizer to dessert, but it's well worth it. It may not be authentic Italian, but in my opinion, it's better than authentic Italian. The big wheel of cheese where they roll the freshly cooked pasta in is such a novelty and a cool thing to watch because it happens right in front of your eyes! It's really clever they thought of that. The risotto was also extremely tasty. The place is very classy and modern so it's perfect for a date too.
