CHRISTMAS EVE 

There’s nothing all year quite like the special and magical feeling of Christmas Eve. All of the hard work is over and it’s finally time to get comfortable with the ones you love. Join the Basta family for our celebration of the joyous holiday season, without all of the stress of hosting a dinner. While you’re enjoying our unique Christmas menu, keep your eyes open…you never know who might stop by!

NEW YEARS EVE

Live music, fantastic food, and an incredible atmosphere are the hallmarks of our annual New Years Eve celebration! Join us for this incredible night as we say “addio” to 2017 and welcome 2018 with our most festive day of the year. As the clock strikes midnight we’ll be serving champagne to toast to the new year. Two seatings are available with our prix fixe menu, call for details.

taste the tradition

Since we opened our doors in 1989 many things have changed; we've updated the menus, undergone a renovation, and added more staff to our Basta family. Still, our commitment to fresh, authentic Italian food has always been the same. In fact, we work to improve each and every day to continually dazzle our guests.

So whether you enjoy our fresh, hand-cut pasta, local day-caught seafood, a signature veal chop or a Neapolitan pizza from Rhode Island’s first-ever VPN certified restaurant, we are sure you will never have “enough” of Basta!
