Pasta e Basta is a fantastic Italian wine bar and restaurant. And it's got a unique twist: not just fantastic dishes and delicious wines - there are incredible musical performances by passionate waitstaff.
Ideal for romantic dinners and group outings, Pasta e Basta is a classically decorated Italian cantina with traditional cuisine (as you might expect, pasta features heavily on the menu). Wherever possible, free-range and artisanal ingredients are used to prepare the dishes, and the menu changes every three months.
But they're not just passionate about the food: all of the waitstaff are also trained professional-level performers. They don't just provide you with excellent service - they sing and perform everything from opera to classics and current pop hits.
If that sounds like something you'd enjoy, you'll join a list of A-listers who've spent the evening at Pasta e Basta: Luciano Pavarotti, Andrea Bocelli, Eros Ramazotti, Mariah Carey, Sting. And also Jerry Springer and David Hasselhoff (The Hoff!).
Pasta E Basta is also a fantastic wine bar with a wide selection of wines from all over the world – you can buy the wines either by the glass or by the bottle.
