OUR COASTAL MENU IS COMING SOON!
True to our name, the new Quanto Basta Wilmington offers a warm welcome to friends and family looking for a dining experience that defines QB…”as much as you like, as much as you need.”
Located in the heart of historic downtown Wilmington, QB’s diverse yet comforting flavors are reminiscent of a casual but unique Italian neighborhood restaurant, complete with seating in a lush, private courtyard with a stunning fountain ~ a true oasis in an urban setting. The building was originally built in the 1800’s and is now a fully-renovated adaptive re-use project that completely transformed its former purpose as Law Offices. The brick and plaster walls were uncovered and restored to create a rustic counterpoint to the custom seashell tabby walls in the space. An expansive bar seating 17 guests with additional soft seating offers a wonderful gathering place for friends and family to begin their evening.
The kitchen showcases freshly prepared pasta with long-simmered sauces; rotisserie fire-roasted meats and poultry; hand-crafted pizzette; and a full-range of old-world Italian specialties. Highlighting curated artisanal provisions from Italy, our food is created with the freshest ingredients and prepared with an uncompromising dedication to Italian traditions. Our menu honors the founder of our original award-winning location in Winston-Salem, NC, and the earthy and authentic family recipes of Chef Timothy Grandinetti. We also features nightly Chef Specials that nod to the bounty of the sea in this beautiful seaside locale.
The QB Wine Bar boasts a comprehensive wine list of both old- and new- world offerings. Each member of our staff is trained and knowledgeable about our wine list, and can help guests navigate to find the perfect taste, glass, and bottle. We showcase Wine Flights that allow guests to experiment with new varietals; and also feature a full selection of top-shelf liquors, seasonal craft cocktails, and an espresso/coffee bar.
Our custom-designed Grotto promises a perfect venue for private events, from wedding festivities to business presentations. With seating for up to 36 guests, the room can also be used for beautiful reception-style celebrations for up to 60 guests when combined with the lovely Outdoor Courtyard. Our in-house Private Events Director is happy to assist in planning your special celebration.
An Italian-inspired Eatery & Wine Bar – Quanto Basta Wilmington celebrates the art of food and the joyful voice of the Italian culture. Cooking with purpose and passion, while providing the depth, ambiance, and value found nowhere else in the coastal region.
We invite you to gather, to taste, and to enjoy here at QB…as much as you like, as much as you need!
