Having a similar name to another restaurants in New York and Amsterdam, Pasta Basta is Jakarta's newest contender in the food and beverages industry and has been opening their doors since Feb 18th 2011. Owned by brothers, Alex and Tino Tian, the tiny restaurant is the medium for them to share the love of their own family's recipe to Jakarta.
Pasta Basta is a single menu restaurant that offers Spaghetti Basta as their main dish, made with their family's recipe that has been handed down through generations since 1962. A range of beverages is available with Tinto de Verano as their signature drinks.
Residing at Kemang Selatan I no.20, the small space Pasta Basta used, has been transformed into a cozy and intimate ambience that surely will make you feel like you are in the comfort of your own house. The service is excellent from the first time you stepped in until you walked out the door. The waiter isn't acting like she's only there for work, but actually greet you like friends and chats to you.
You can get a bowl of spaghetti at the price of IDR 39000, and a jumbo spaghetti at IDR 55000. The price for the beverages are ranging from IDR 6000 for bottled water, IDR 8000 for soft drinks and IDR 35000 for a glass of their pleasant Tinto de Verano. Worth it!
Pasta Basta is the perfect place for you to have either lunch or dinner, with your friends, family or dates. Kids will love the place (besides having spaghetti as the menu) as they offer their wall to be written on with chalk by guests. They have both indoor and outdoor seating, and all are smoking area.
The whole concept of one big happy family is really embodied in the menu, service, interior and the people.
