Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Found this restaurant online a few weeks ago so decided to try it out this lunchtime. So glad we did. It was really good. We chose penne arrabiata and the chicken breast from the £10 lunchtime menu and shared bruschetta to start. We had a sparkling water and a bottle of Peroni to drink. Our bill came to £28 which is very good value for money for the quality of the food and service. So good to have somewhere nice to go to in the town. We will definitely be going back.

Basile’s goes from strength to strength. We have visited since Francisco took over and Villa Ada became Basile’s, in my opinion it is better now than ever. The decor is simpler and more modern with new, very attractive, pictures decorating the walls. Artem the chef is very talented, I have sampled different dishes and they are all wonderful with tasty sauces and expertly cooked ingredients. We visit at lunchtime as our ageing digestions prefer this but it doesn’t detract from our dining experience, we feel very privileged to experience this level of cooking and service in Luton.

I very frequently travel from London Luton airport and often stay in or around the town. Last week we returned to this idyllic Italian restaurant for the second time, it’s a very welcoming and friendly restaurant with great team members that created a lovely ambiance. The menu is not overloaded with lodes of dishes and confusing ingredients as unfortunately we experienced in few other local restaurants.It’s very straight forward Italian dishes . The food in our opinion is great flavourful and consistent every time. Staff are very helpful. Chef is obviously passionate and very knowledgeable. The kitchen is open and he can be seen cooking a ninja of pots pans knives and flames great show peace. Can’t recommend enough thanks to Francesco Artan and Elda keep up the great establishment

This was our first visits since it had been taken over by Francesco. The place looked very fresh and very inviting. We was made to feel very welcome from the minute we walk in the place The food was excellent all freshly prepared and cooked to order. The service was very good and the whole experience was top class. Would highly recommend and will definitely be revisiting

We went for our first visit last night after the refurbishment many months back. The restaurant has had a major revamp from its former incarnation (Villa Ada). It has a lovely, clean, fresh decor and beautiful art work. The table is laid with fresh linens and the Maitre d' and chef both very attentive. Our starters were the King Prawns and Tagliatelle ai funghi; mains Sea Bass and Sirloin Steak. It was ALL completely delicious (photo does not do it justice). I am gf and they would willingly adapt any dish to accommodate me. (On this occasion they had no gf pasta in, but as I didn't want pasta, and there was still an extensive menu available to me, that suited me fine.) We missed out on dessert due to attempts post -Christmas to cut our sugars down, but next time hope to try the recommended panacotta too! Will definitely be back.

This restaurant is a little gem. The ambiance is great where dinners often talk to each other like a typical Italian Tratoria back in Italy. It is so friendly but the main event is the great food. Artan, the Chef, is the owner and he is passionate about cooking and customer satisfaction. His wife Elda is the Maitre d' and she couldn't be more friendly and helpful. I took some friends there for dinner and one said it was the best steak he'd ever eaten. My Wife loves the Octopus and for me the calves liver is wonderful. Artan cooks everything just how you like it too perfection. Another bonus is the parking is never a problem.

Came to Lartista Ristorante a couple weeks ago and it was absolutely amazing from start to finish. As we were reading the menu and trying to decide what to order the Chef came out to serve another table. He told us the specials and gave his personal recommendations. We chose the scallops to start which was a special, and for mains had the sea food pasta and the duck, which was another special. Each dish was gorgeous and so tasty! The sauces on all the dishes were absolutely gorgeous!! The panna cotta was recommended for dessert and was so creamy and tasty! The house wine was lovely as well! The value for all this gorgeous food and drinks was brilliant, and the chef and waiter were so friendly and helpful! Would definitely recommend Lartista Ristorante to anyone!!

We recently had the pleasure of visiting this restaurant and having a wonderful meal. Italian food at it's very best. The menu offers a wide range of starters and main meals. Specials were also available on the night we dined there, all served by the friendly and attentive staff who all made us feel very welcome.

What a fabulous find! We arrived just after opening and were greeted at the door by the Chef/Proprietor Artan. The warm welcome was an indication of the kind and attentive man that he is. Crisp white linen, appropriate cutlery and sparkling glasses were much appreciated. And the food did not disappoint! My choice was the whole sea bream, so fresh and perfectly cooked. It was served with a white wine sauce that at my request Artan added capers and lemon to. My husband chose the lamb, very tender and served with a delicious sauce. Artan took the time to leave the kitchen to see how we were doing and presented us with a complimentary glass of his homemade Grappa at the end of our meal. We were too full for dessert so cannot comment but we highly recommend this restaurant within walking distance of Luton Mall. Sadly we were visiting Luton for one night only otherwise we undoubtedly would be regular customers. Don’t miss out!

I was looking for good food in smart, elegant surroundings. Basile’s doesn’t disappoint and delivered the upmarket experience I wanted. The surroundings are very smart and the food was top notch. Most important of all, though, was the service which was friendly and attentive. If you want an evening (or lunchtime) with good food in smart surroundings then I can’t recommend Basile’s highly enough.

We took a party of friends (18 of us) for our wedding breakfast at the weekend. Everyone agreed the food and service were fabulous. We agreed a menu with Edmondo and gave him our choices in advance, except for the 4 extra guests who came on the day! Thanks for giving us a wonderful evening.

Highly recommend this lovely Italian restaurant. Good food, warm welcome and a lovely atmosphere. The mozzarella in carrozza was very good followed by the fresh Ravioli filled with lobster. As for desserts you have to try the panacotta, delicious!! If you like authentic Italian food cooked freshly then go to Basile. Looking forward to trying the lunch time menu.

We have known Artan since his early days at La Dolce Vita and have always loved his food. We finally found him in his new restaurant and plan to visit as often as possible, our new favourite restaurant in Luton. We visited on Wednesday 12th June at 6:30pm for my birthday. There were 6 of us, 4 adults and 2 teens. We were met by Artan and his great nephew, who's service is second to none. Nothing was too much trouble and the drinks were kept topped up, despite being busy. Artan's food was spectacular as always, he even put a candle in my dessert and got everyone to sing happy birthday to me 🥰. Our favourite dishes were the tbone steak and the chicken with spinach and pancetta in a creamy sage sauce. We couldn't fault a thing though and the tiramisu was superb. Highly recommend Lartista Ristorante. You won't be disappointed. Make sure you book to avoid disappointment as word is getting around about how good the food is. They also have a function room upstairs which is perfect for around 25-30 people. We will be making use of that in the near future.

We met our friends there last night - the restaurant has been decorated really nicely, the service was excellent and the food was exceptional. We all said that is the best meal we have had in the UK for ever - the menu was lovely, spoilt for choice, could have selected most things on the menu. We will definitely be back

Wonderfully cooked food from a menu that isn’t over complicated. I had a starter of fried calamari which was perfectly cooked, aromatic and tasty. All of our menu choices were cooked to perfection and the wine choices are very good. Service was excellent: attentive, helpful and friendly without being over bearing.
