Quanto Basta Restaurant Review

: Italian themes permeate the kitchen, the d├ęcor and the wine selection, which is Italian and Californian. A few are available by the glass, and they're good choices. Start off with prosciutto-wrapped figs, a lovely fall concept here marred by puddles of over-reduced balsamic vinegar. Pasta carbonara is nicely done, not overdressed, and rich without being drowned in cream. Duck with gnocchi is a notch too rare. For dessert, check out the hazelnut terrine on caramel sauce, two wedges of rich, thinly sliced, not-too-sweet chocolate with the texture enriched by ground hazelnuts. Quite lovely, it's plenty for two. Ask about wine tastings, held the third Wednesday of the month.

The best restaurant you have never been too.

John is an absolute genius when it comes to assembling an Italian menu the way it was intended to be.
The mix of old family recipes and using the best ingredients available make Quanto Basa a great outing for the entire family.
