If you have never been to Columbus, Ohio, you might not know that the city has some great restaurants. While I am back, I am visiting my favorites and sharing with all of you.
When it comes to a nice dinner out, Basi Italia is my favorite.
If I am looking to celebrate (aka splurge), my go-to restaurant is Basi Italia. I think I may have actually celebrated four birthdays there. And fellas, if you’re looking to impress a woman, this is the place to take her.
What Is So Great About Basi Italia?
Basi is modern, gourmet Italian with that tiny, hole-in-the-wall bistro romanticism.
I have had many excellent dining experiences at Basi before, but I have to say that my most recent dinner here was possibly the greatest meal I have ever had.
And that is saying a lot!
My go-to appetizer has always been the zucchini. So we had to order that.
I usually order the gnocchi at Basi because they just do it so well. They change up the type of gnocchi frequently, so it’s usually something new to me.
Asiago Cheese Gnocchi (aka THE BEST GNOCCHI I HAVE EVER EATEN IN MY LIFE)
One of the staples on their menu is the sausage rigatoni. It is one of the most flavorful dishes I have ever eaten, and it is consistent every time. Luckily, my friend ordered it, so I could have a few bites.
Basi Italia is located in the Victorian Village neighborhood at 811 Highland Avenue.
