Excellent food and service. The tables and bathroom were clean
One of my favorite to go places when friends are in town or a meal that never disappoints me
The food was great. The service was horrible. I made reservations for 7:15 didn’t get seated until 8 once seated our waiter was rude, rushing and wasn’t attentive. He seemed overwhelmed and though we weren’t asking for much, he barely did the minimum. We got rolls no butter no salad (that we are charged for) only asked us once about a drink (got that wrong) when we asked about the salad he got irritated and told us “in a second” by the time we got our food we had to go due to our other reservations so we had to pack it up as soon as it was put on the table.
Wonderful food! Nice service. A little updating would be nice
When ever we go to Basta Pasta Timunium MD we always know we will have a good dinner with our friends. The food is great.
The food and thee service were both excellent. We enjoyed them immensely. The only problem was difficulty parking. We plan to return to try more of their extensive menu.
Brett was our server! Dinner was delicious as usual.
Service was excellent!!! The food was incredible. This will be one of our favorite restaurant.
Good food and good service. Very noisy to be seated where bar is in front room on the left.
I have planned many party dinners and get togethers at this restaurant and have always been pleased with all aspects of the experience. Stephen, the manager, is exceptional and always goes out of his way to ensure excellence. He is extremely helpful when we make special requests and it's a pleasure working with him and his staff.
Incredibly slow service. It took a long time to get our drinks, appetizers and entrees. Our dinners were not brought out for about 1 hour. Not sure what the problem was. The food is quite pricy. Chairs need to be replaced as they are in bad shape and cracking. The food was excellent.
Everything was great.
Our service and food for the most part was very good. We did have to alert the manager as there was a living insect in my friend's dessert. We did not cause a loud scene and he was very apologetic. However, he only took the dessert off of her bill. We were a party of five and I feel he should have taken her whole meal off of the bill. The fact that she may have already ingested more prior to the discovery was very unsettling.
We eat at this restaurant often. Love the unending salad. Huge portion size. Food is always very good. Our waitress tonight wad outstanding.
One small complaint tonight - i ordered the halibut with crab meat special. I would have expected crab meat lumps but instead was served a halibut filet without sauce on top of mixed vegetable. The veges were mixed with an ounce or two of crab flakes -backfin i guess. It just didn't work well or deserve the price. Having said that this is overall a very good value restaurant.
We will return.
Very ample portions, nice rolls and salad. Always can rely on good food and service. Good quality for the moderate price.
It was a busy night, the day after Valentine’s Day . Bar service was a little slow-other than that it was a great night . We were celebrating our Son’s engagement.
Food, great. Service, terrific.
Please, make a trip to this restaurant.
Waiter was great!! She was very attentive!!
A very busy night. Our reservation was honored within ten minutes of the time. Service was good and the food consistently good as usual.
Good meal, well served.
The crab cakes are awesome. And our waitress was phenomenal! She was attentive but not intrusive. Really enjoyed our meal.
Great salmon and Bolognese sauce. Crabcakes are also outstanding. We love the salad and breadsticks… Everything at this restaurant is really good. Great service as well.
Each of the three of us ordered something different including a carry out order. Each dish was rated excellent and one was the BEST chicken she had ever eaten. Not super busy busy number of tables were occupied in our room, and server was busy but super attentive as needed. Basta Pasta is my 'go-to' place whenever I have guests.
We were big fans of the Perry Hall location so we figured the food would be just as good at this location. Nope not at all. Unfortunately this was our first and last visit. Crab toast was horrible and that is my favorite and the crab dip was strange. Good luck but we won’t be back.
Food was good. One person in the party said something about her dish having a lot of empty shells in it. The manager came over at the end and took half off of her meal.
Server and customer service was 5 star. The only upsetting thing was I ask the server if they could sing happy birthday to my daughter and it never happened we had to sing it ourselves and I spent $380.00
Our experience Saturday was much better than our last visit!
Everything was just what I expected, except for the wait. Usually when I make reservation I'm seated at the time of my reservation. This time we had a twenty minute wait. Maybe restaurant week had something to do with that.
Restaurant was slammed. Very poor table management. Should have stopped taking reservations. Parking lot was worse. And who was blocking the travel lane? The managers F-150!
We waited 30 minutes for our reserved table and wound up sitting in the bar.
Not an acceptable performance.
Never any surprises. U know that the food will be good and large size portions. Service is always excellent.
Excellent Restaurant week menu! Steak was phenomenal as well as the creme brûlée!
Our waitress was great. I can’t find my receipt to call her out by name, but she was attentive but not intrusive and right there when we needed her.
Food was delicious as usual.
Be back soon!!
Our waitress was very nice (Lyndsay) but could use a little training, I think. She didn't tell us her name (saw it on the receipt), was rushed, reached across me and the table to put a plate down next to my partner, and it was hard to get her attention when we needed something as she rushed in and out of the room (the lounge) without looking around.
Went out to celebrate Moms birthday and had a wonderful dinner. Food was GREAT! Ali our server was attentive, efficient and worked hard to see that we had what we needed. We will be returning!
Had lunch there with two friends. With a few exceptions, most of the entrees come with salad and side. The salad is very good. It includes cucumbers, onions, cherry tomatoes, and croutons as well as lettuces. Two of us had chicken entrees. I had chicken piccata, and my friend had chicken marsala. Both were excellent. The portions are generous and we all left with doggie bags. Our server was very attentive and friendly. It was lunch time, and the place was not too noisy to talk. I thought it was good value for what we got. We were too full for dessert, so I can't comment on that. I would definitely go back.
Never disappointed at Basta Pasta. There are great selections in the different categories. Highly recommend the zucchini chips and the fried calamari for appetizers. My wife loves the Seafood Cioppino and I'm partial to the Seafood Primavera. However, we have ordered from different parts of the menu with equal satisfaction. Buon appetito!
Basta Pasta has consistently good food, Service as expected much better when the restaurant is less crowded as it was this particular night. However overall the service is relatively good.
This is a place to go for a large group or just 2
They have large round tables
It was crowded , noisy and my maine course did not taste good at all . I paid for what I did not eat. I ordered salmon with dried tomatoes and spinach and mushroom. The mushrooms were as hard as a rock. My husband ordered pasta carbonara and it came with asparagus, it tasted so weird.We were very disappointing.Either they changed the chef or something was not working. We used to enjoy the meals at this place.
The food at Basta Pasta is always good. The service, depending on your server is ok to great. This time our waitress was great! Very attentive and sweet.
