casualfood is further expanding its presence in Hamburg by opening a Basta! outlet at Hamburg Central Railway Station. It is the first time this concept has been rolled out at a railway station as it was previously only used at airports. The new Basta! offers rail passengers an authentic taste of Italy to take away. Made using proprietary recipes and high-quality ingredients, the food is quick, easy and delicious. From pinsa and pasta to filled panini, everything is freshly prepared on site. The menu is not the only thing that’s impressive at Basta!, however. It also boasts a stylish design and high-quality fittings which underline the concept’s premium ethos.

Ranging from Margherita to Diavolo, from Pasta Napoli to Pesto Verde, from Panini Vegetale to Salame, and from aperitifs to espresso, the menu is distinctively Italian and made using top ingredients. Basta! prides itself on offering simply delicious food with no fuss. Customers can order pinsa by the slice or whole and combine their favourite type of pasta with their chosen sauce.

“Hamburg Central Railway Station is Germany’s busiest station. We’re delighted to be opening our Basta! here, offering rail passengers a tasty and healthy alternative to conventional fast food,” says Michael Schorm. “The new Basta! is our second outlet in Hamburg because casualfood already has a Quicker’s at Altona station since many years. We’re already planning to open other outlets at stations in Hamburg, but it’s too early to disclose any details as yet,” says Andreas Förster.

Basta! is a flexible concept which can be adjusted to suit specific airports and stations. It works as a takeaway-only outlet – like here at Hamburg Central Railway Station – or as a self-service or full-service restaurant.
