Location and contact

Chef Christian Gritti (professionally trained in San Pellegrino, Italy) serves a traditional Northern Italian Menu in Baja California. All of our pastas are handmade fresh! We are sure you will be able to taste the difference between fresh pasta and dry pasta. We imported a pizza oven from Europe and make pizza the true Italian way. The chef grew up making pizza in his Dad's pizza shop. We serve wine from an Italian vineyard in the Guadalupe Valley, Villa Montefiori & Casa Magoni. We hope you will feel like family in our cozy location. Come and experience a taste of Italy in Baja!

When you are in Rosarito the idea of grabbing an Italian dinner isn’t always the first thing you think of… This place is good enough to challenge that notion. I live in Rosarito and visit Pasta y Basta on a weekly basis. The chef (Christian)...More

The restaurant is Italian food. Very expensive for Mexico and the waiters were very snooty. Thought it was geared for Americans with American prices, food wasn’t that good and the waiters thought they were great. Tried Lasagna and pizza. Have had better here in Rosarito.

The food was fantastic and the service was astounding! I have never had such great service in a restaurant. The chef personally came and asked my feedback on the special I had ordered. All six in our party liked their dinner.
