All flask-restful does is providing you a very basic scaffolding to write
restful APIs.
With only flask, you would be lacking even that and would be building it on
your own ...

So the answer "depends" on your goal.
 - Are you trying to learn flask itself: go with barebone flask.
 - API is a subtask, you have a much bigger fish to fry: go with
flask-classy / python-eve.

Hope it helps, and does not confuse you more than you already are ;)
