This village icon specializing in Italian fare has re-opened, under the same name but with a new staff and menu, a few years ago. However, high pricing and small (albeit tasty) portions make Basta a place for just an occasional dinner.
At the lower end there are many, many bars, pubs and pizza joints in the village; all offering carbs, salads and booze for a quick bite. But there had to be more...I found myself looking for great dining with affordable prices for that night-after-night reliable good dinner.
