Thank You For a Wonderful 25 Years

Today, I let my staff know that Basta will be closing at the end of the year.
This was a very hard decision, probably one of the most difficult in my experience.
I feel Basta has run its course, and now it is time to exit gracefully.
I would like to thank my patrons, with whom I have grown older and hopefully wiser and especially my staff who made it all possible.  

A presto,  Marco


Fine Italian Cuisine

Since opening our doors in 1992, Basta has always taken advantage of our Northwest bounty.
We use local organic produce, meats, forest ingredients, and fish.

All of our fresh pastas, sausages, pancetta, desserts and infusions are made in house.

We believe in supporting our local artisans, and the couches and tables were made only a few blocks away. The wood on the walls and tables was salvaged from local barn lumber, and even the point of sale system was designed and is maintained locally.

We reach outside of Oregon for only one thing…
our award winning wine list.
It’s Italian, like the owner.
