This weekend a Winston-Salem Italian eatery hot spot is making the Port City its second home.

Quanto Basta: Italian Eatery & Wine Bar is bringing the taste of Italy to the heart of Downtown Wilmington on 107 North 2nd Street right next to Ironclad Brewery.

“The concept of Quanto Basta [QB] is true to its simple Italian culinary definition: ‘as much as you like; as much as you need,’” their website says.

They have all your Italian favorites from baked ziti and chicken Parmesan to shrimp scampi risotto. There is something for every taste palate. Diverse yet comforting flavors mixed in with the casual atmosphere will make you feel like your dinning in the center of Rome.

According to their website, Chef Timothy Grandinetti created a menu of earthy and authentic family recipes which also features nightly Chef Specials from the local waters of the Port City. Looking through their menu and the mouthwatering images on their Instagram you get that comforting feeling of Sunday family dinners. It’s obvious Chef Grandinetti takes time and care with every dish he prepares to provide that warm feeling of home to every person who walks through the door.
