About Basta

Recreating the flavoursome culinary ethos of Sicily, Basta osteria and café on Gertrude Street in Fitzroy delivers homemade Italian fare made to be shared with family and friends. The brainchild of Sicilian turned Melburnian Fabio Candolo, Basta means ‘enough’ and that is exactly what you will get; from enough food to enough room inside and out for any kind of gathering. Spread over two floors, there are cosy corners for a romantic evening, bar stools for catchups with friends while watching the theatre of the kitchen and large tables for a big family reunion. Say buon appetito to starters of Port Lincoln sardines, wild fennel, couscous, raisins, pine nuts and lemon zest; before twirling your fork around pasta plates of housemade parsley-infused tagliatelle, lamb ragu and ricotta salata.
