Pork belly is excellent, always great Brussels sprouts, short rib special was very good as well as the veal bean special soup. The lamb ragu pappardelle is always great. The service for years has been solid. They are very attentive.

Winning praise from The New York Times, Basso Cafe is an energetic yet intimate Mediterranean haven in Norwalk, offering an innovative menu that includes world flavours. Diners are welcome to bring their own alcohol, with only a small corkage fee charged.

Strong, classic Mediterranean flavours are combined with Latin American and world fusions on the Basso Cafe menu. Passionate about pasta, the restaurant serves superb combinations of freshly made spaghetti with mussels, as well as eclectic vegetarian creations like homemade gnocchi with shitake mushrooms, drizzled with 36-month old white truffle oil.

As well as hearty meat and poultry dishes at Basso Cafe Norwalk, tastes of the Orient are showcased in the tuna and mango sashimi. A rich, irresistible dessert menu offers up such treats as chocolate molten lava cake.

    Excellent food & service. The place was smaller than I expected & quite loud however I would still give it 5 stars.

    My husband and I dined once at the restaurant with our daughter. We had a fabulous meal and recommended the restaurant to two additional couples. The six of us dined there last night. We had fabulous food, appetizers with entrees....desserts, coffee...lots of wine (byob) I would highly recommend the Mediterranean salad and scallops. As we were finishing our coffee and desserts, it seemed that the entire staff of the restaurant was buzzing around us....taking every plate, cup, piece of silverware, etc off the table, returning many times to collect the bill...I think they did everything but physically escort us out the door! We were all quite surprised, as there was no one waiting for our table (9:30pm or later at nite) and there were many other diners who arrived before us and were still seated. I don't think we will be able to return to the restaurant for some time....and I don't think my friends will consider returning, either...

    A local friend of ours highly recommended this place to us and we were not disappointed. The staff are very knowledgeable about the menu and had a very interesting choices of small dishes. The food was really out of this world. We would have gone there every day of our time in Norwalk if we had heard about it sooner.
