    Voted Best Pizza in Westword's Best of Denver 2011!

    Traditional authentic Italian pizza joint, but the strive for authenticity leaves mixed results with the pizzas. Try the "Daisy" pizza. Mains $7-$32; pizza $10-$15; apps $6-$16. "See more for review": Read more

    Get a jug wine. Wine is always better by the jug!

    Basta is a wood fired eatery that dishes out a variety of items from handmade pastas and Neapolitan pizzas to oysters and hearty dishes like short ribs cooked sous vide. [Eater 38 Member]

    Ask for Jordan, tell him you want "The Motorboating Special," and prepare for a wild ride!

    The Daisy pizza is deliciously addictive and always a faithful standby but Basta never disappoints with their local, market fresh specials like their latest Summer pasta with pea pesto

    The s'mores are fantastic. Try the Daisy with prosciutto added. The lasagna is creamy and superb.

    Calzones were not bad, definitely better places in the area for pizza or italian food. Small limited menu.
