In general the food can be called good at this restaurant. The service was initially slow as it took 15 minutes to even order a drink. Three of us had lasagna as a main course, which was burned on the outside and top. Therefore an average score. The spaghetti with seafood was very good.

We chose this restaurant based on the mainly positive reviews and the proximity to our hotel, we were not disappointed, it was a nice meal and a nice evening.The owner was very nice, he chatted to us, made us feel welcome. There seemed to be a lot of locals eating there, which is always a good sign. Only small negative... More

The food is excellent, I was there three times during my visit to Torino (lunch AS well AS dinner), particularly the Gnocchi are really great, obviously housemade and delicious.

We sat outside (not the much of a view but nice and fresh) and tried the pan fried anchovies, to kill for, a tagliatelle with game ragout, excellent and gnocchi sorrentina. Great service, very large portions, perhaps a bit too heavy the taste

Excellent food, good wine, friendly waiters. At a first glance it doesn't seem anything special, but once you are inside you'll be overwhelmed by the great dishes and the friendly staff most willing to give you advice.

Exellent restaurant, not only pasta, the Moscardini are also fantastic. Excellent choice of good whine, from reasonably priced good local whine from Piemonte to Grand Bordeaux. Reasonable prices (If you do not go for the Grand Chateaux...!!!)

Pasta e Basta is one of my favorite places in Torino. The food is great and the staff is so friendly and welcoming. Plus it's always fun to go and do some karaoke. I took everyone here when I was in Torino and I can't wait to go back someday!

Ate here for lunch and dinner. Happy with the portions but thought the cooking was average. Waiter was friendly. No atmosphere. There are better places.

Went for the first time last week and definitely will go again every time I go to Turin. Large portions, magnificent taste, wide variety and fantastic atmosphere. What would you expect more?.......Oh yes, the owner is a Juventino so that's added value to the place :) Keep it up! Ci vediamo alla prossima!
