Since opening doors in 1992 Bastas has always taken advantage of our Northwest bounty. We use local organic produce, meats, forest ingredients as well as fish. All of our fresh pastas as well as sausages, pancetta, breads, 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 is Italian, like the owner.
