About us

In medieval Japan the Basara were a group of samurai who did not conform to the costums and traditions of society. The BASARA brand is inspired by this philosophy of independence and strength.

The BASARA was inaugurated in 2011 in Via Tortona, in the pulsating heart of Milanese fashion.

The brand's second restaurant was launched in 2014 in Corso Italia offering an innovative take away and delivery service throughout Milan.

In 2018 BASARA was enriched with its flagship: the founding of a sushi academy and Japanese cuisine presenting some of the sector's great experts. The ideal opportunity for anyone who wants to achieve their working dream and for all those who simply want to learn more about the ancient art of sushi.

The new Milan venue in Via Washington, opened in 2018, offers an innovative Kaiten system and a traditional Zen garden. 

During 2019, BASARA Rinascente was born, inside the Food Hall on the seventh floor of the store in Piazza Duomo, Milan.

At the end of 2020, Basara reaches a second destination in the Veneto region: Padua, in a location a stone’s throw from picturesque Piazza della Frutta, in Via Vincenzo Stefano Breda 5.

In 2021 the Bologna restaurant: it comes to life inside the historic Torre De Galluzzi, dating back to 1200, keeping the original walls almost intact, and is characterized by refined furnishings.

In 2022, Basara moves from Padua to Abano Terme, inside the Plaza Hotel.

The latest venue to be inaugurated is that of Rome, opened in 2023 in the capital in the CaputMundi Mall in Via Urbano VIII 16c, with an entirely new concept never experienced before by the Group.
