The name is Quanto Basta. When do you say you’ve had enough? Dionysus, who we’re sure would be a regular, would say there is always room for good food and drink. When you come to Quanto Basta, you’re sure to leave satisfied. But how much is enough? When you’re enjoying your meal and wine it’s hard to stop in the moment! For us, “non basta mai.” It is never enough! Good food, good drink, good atmosphere, good friends – why stop?

Lena and our server (sorry didn't get his name) gave us an amazing personalized experience. They treated us like royalty. Extremely knowledgeable about every ingredient and the origin of it from the exceptional live oil to the burrata to the best prancing we've ever had. The ravioli in mushroom cream sauce is the best we've ever had and first time we weren't disappointed in the quality of the sauce and pasta. It was exceptional. Cant wait to come back for the Cornish hens and sorry we missed last week's elk! The place was packed on a Monday and unlike other places being slow on Mondays it deserves all the business it gets! 5 stars for this place!!

One of our neighbourhood favourites - never disappoints, and always a warm welcome! The Il Capra salad was brilliant with its beets, pistachio, radishes, currants and arugula in a crumbled goat cheese vinaigrette.
My branzino portion was huge, cooked to perfection and served with rapini and fennel.
It was a Sunday night so fairly quiet, which was really nice, and our servers were excellent.
Thanks Quanto Basta!

Truly a great place with a great vibe, but a bit overpriced for the pasta dishes and far too much sauce went into the preparation. I also thought the salad size was far too small as well.

Quanto Basta is always reliable. The food is consistently good. The chicken salad is very good in the hot weather. I usually have the calamari salad. When I am really hungry I have the pappardella bolognese. It is fantastic. I must keep going back to try something new because every thing I have had has been excellent. Service is excellent too. The people who work here are extremely pleasant and helpful. I really cannot say enough good things about this restaurant.

I must admit I was quite let down during my first (and likely only) visit to Quanta Basta. Several people I know rave about it, so I was expecting to have a great experience. The restaurant is nice, the staff are great. However, my meal was so-so. And what surprised me the most, especially in a restaurant such as this......the cutlery was put directly onto the table surface and the menus were placed directly on top of the cutlery. Call me germ phobic if you want. I call it basic principles of food safety/sanitary conditions. So.....for the blah meal and the fact that I didn’t want to use the cutlery, don’t think I’ll be going back.

The food is incredible but management is horrible. I made a reservation weeks before for 4. Was seated at a poor table next to the busy wait staff section (so your chair is constantly kicked). I asked to move (the restaurant was empty at 6 pm) and the Manager said no then he informed me we had to be out right at 8 pm. I mean, really? How rude. I understand you have two seatings but how rude. Ironically, we left at 8 pm after paying $500 and the restaurant was still empty. Will not go here again.

For a 6pm reservation on a Sat night for 2 people, service was very slow. Ordered 2 soups and 1 pasta and 1 salad for entree. Had at least 5 servers so I think our entree order must have been over looked.
Many of clams in pasta were not opened so I left them and no one asked why. Disappointing as I do go often for lunch and service is much better.

The food quality of this restaurant is very consistent. If I feel like having some good food without any bad surprises, they are always the first that comes in mind. Not a very big menu but enough selection for me to choose something I enjoy each time. Mushroom ravioli is my fav!

I am an extremely loyal patron, especially when I love a restaurant. This restaurant is incredible - food is always exceptional and ambiance always so great. This time - and actually a few other times it's the service that always kills the vibe/mood. Our server was polite but had zero enthusiasm and quite frankly didn't really show us she cared about being there. The staff in general looked in a funk, and the mood was somber at best. I will continue to go - but I've decided next time I will let them know. It's not worth loving something so much to have it slighted by the people that are supposed to be there to heighten the experience.

Won’t ever return on 1/2 price wine Wednesday nights. The noise level was exceedingly high and detracted from the ability to converse and our enjoyment.

The special bruschetta appetizer was delicious and enough for two. My guest and I shared it. The pasta mains were also very tasty and the half price Wednesday wine feature was a bonus.
Our server was friendly and efficient. Good
