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, as a modular restaurant capable of satisfying the gastronomic needs of every moment of the day. Simple, yet innovative design solutions make it diverse for every occasion, whether it be lunch, an aperitif or dinner; even the venue's lighting can be modified, thanks to a sophisticated home automation system .

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

Following the same proven formula from its previous restaurants, in 2015 BASARA opened its doors in Venice as well, just a few steps from San Marco and in 2017 it became part of the new Costa Smeralda panorama in Promenade du Port in Porto Cervo.

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.
