"Basso is a sleek basement gastro pub with an Italian accent and a playful attitude. Descend the winding staircase and discover a restaurant abuzz with activity. The 5,000-square foot, 150-seat space features a blend of comfort and rusticity. The 40-seat bar is apropos for a venue that serves up 32 beers on tap. An Italian-centric wine list boasts a variety of unique pours, and a cocktail list sure to please those who appreciate a unique beverage.Basso’s menu celebrates authentic Italian cuisine with its creative use of ingredients largely found in the surrounding community. The culinary team is committed to forging relationships with growers and purveyors who can deliver high-quality products that translate into exceptional guest experiences. The diverse menu – available for dinner and late-night – incorporates house-made pastas and breads, wood-fired pizzas, roasted meats and veggies, and great items for sharing. A 40-seat bar is the anchor of Basso, so of course the beer, wine and cocktail lists are exceptional."
