Basta

 This from an old draft I never posted…

 

Midway between Warwick and Providence, Gaspee and Pawtuxet area sets the tone of a relaxed atmosphere reinforced by a drive down Narragansett Parkway from Warwick Avenue. Adoration of the style and architecture of housing in this area is required. An area where the uber rich could peacefully reside unnoticed and be comfortable. It’s the setup for arrival in Pawtuxet Village, a place that can be considered, as an overused expression , a hidden gem.
Always over the years, a small smattering of shops in the area and dining establishments to gracefully wind down some hours away. Maybe not that apparent to the seasoned traveler, but to a long time RI resident a different setting than the bustle of the city, Providence, a chance to unwind possibly before hitting a more robust pace or night cap.
That’s purely my take, in this restaurant, the patio setting gives one a feel of a small establishment, a welcome division from a main dining room accessible from the rear easy to find parking lot. No booths, but a fireplace and just enough tables to give the area peace, a level of background music tolerable, and star lighted ceiling effect. Cordoned off from the elements of winter, warm enough for the setting with an occasional reminder that a blustery winter wind blows  outside a la New England!
The menu is not over done. Enough selections for most palates, and even the pizza offerings are pared down, from the classic and several specials including a sampler ,  I have tried to find a brick oven pizza eatery to offer just a plain baked pizza shell,  but usually don’t go the extra step as many diners do to request something off the menu. A true dough-a-holic that I am I would tend to rate a eatery on the quality of bread alone.
Not going out to eat that often one could consider the menu expensive and drinks will drive up the price, but that includes the dining experience finding a place that’s laid out not to be overcrowded with jammed tables and constant people traffic. Cooking at home often, dining out gives me a chance to find something I don’t usually prepare at home whether it’s a drink or meal.
Since food can be a very objective experience, let’s say I was satisfied, beverages are an important part of the meal when visiting a restaurant of this caliber.
Nowadays a well kept and accurate website also gives credibility to a business and Basta is not the exception.
