Pasta Basta: "Original Pasta" Pasta Bast - CLOSED Tip by austen1973

Pasta Bast - CLOSED, Brussels: 2 reviews and 1 photos

This place is one of my favourite italian in Brussels. Located near the trendy Halles St Gerry area, this restaurant is fabulous.

Decor : everything is black, with some white and burgundy here and there, slighlty lit that gives the place a very cosy and intimate atmosphere.

Music : good chilly lounge with a DJ playing there twice a week but still in that style without being loud (yes, you can still hear people opposite you talking)

Service : A+, one of the best service I've ever had in a restaurant

Food : as the name is Pasta Basta...they mainly serve fantastic and original pasta. If you feel like eating vegetarian or a steak, don't worry, you still got a large choice in the menu.

Price : where else in Brussels can you pay $35 for a fantastic creative 3 course dinner ?

Booking preferable on week-ends

Favorite Dish: Lettuce soup
Goat cheese toast
Bruscetto italian

Scampis linguini
Penne gorgonzola (very strong) and spinach

Address: Rue de la Grande Ile 34
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: When you have the Halles St Gerry in front of you (main entrance), turn left, right, left and walk 50 meters, it's on the left hand side
