Based on the demise of its Facebook and Instagram profiles, it seems Casa Ciuccio on Gertrude St has closed. I enjoyed a fantastic dinner there (but did not write about it) and also liked the cafe for lunch, as well as the cafe’s predecessor.  A job ad reveals that the owners who took over Ciuccio are now redeveloping the site as a new place called Basta.

    This isn’t a huge surprise. When it changed hands the new owners immediately jacked up the price of the best thing on the menu- the grilled octopus- and then took it off completely. I don’t know what their business plan was about.

    Basta- interesting to know what that will be about. ‘Basta’ means ‘enough’ in Italian, so I’m thinking a low end -all-you-can-eat pasta place.
