    Our party of four enjoyed a superb dinner recently at Basta Pasta. Service was excellent (thank you Maddy) and our food was awesome. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience! We will be back…

    The waiter was excellent! He checked back many times. Even the manager came by to say hello and ask if we needed anything. The food was delicious with generous portions for a lunch menu! We loved the salad and bread that came with our meal too! We met friends and we’re told no rush to leave to stay as long as we want! Definitely will be back!

    We had another wonderful meal at the Eldersburg Basta Pasta! The food was great and our server Jordon (not Gordon) was excellent!! He had a great personality and was on top of service!!! Next time we go we will request one of his tables!!! The crab bread is still amazing and the salad is delicious!

    Basra Pasta does not disappoint! Eggplant Parmesan was delicious! I didn’t taste everything, but the seafood and pasta dish as well as the chicken Marsala were enjoyed by those who ordered. The only downfall was the crab cake. We should have known better with the extraordinarily high price of crab. The server described it as all lump crab meat. It was mostly filler, but the crab was lump crab meat. That being said, I will return to this restaurant. The food is great, the staff is nice and it is a fun place to meet friends.

    Given that we made reservations more than a week in advance, didn't expect to be headed to a table with bar chairs in bar area. Not seated mind you, just headed to that direction. We politely asked for a table in dining room, and the teenage hostess was quite rude and put out, even when it was explained that we were looking for a family celebration including children, and had one of the party who had trouble hearing. In the bar area it was deafening. Our server Jason couldn't have been nicer and more attentive, which made the meal much better overall. It was very busy, and we arrived as multiple take out orders were being served, so chalk it up to a hectic day for the restaurant. Teenage help could use a bit more training in customer service though...

    This was our first time at Basta Pasta and the food was absolutely amazing! Our waitress smiled all the time and took care of us without disrupting our dining. I am so glad we have such a quaint place to dine in Sykesville! We will definitely dine with extended family there. I highly recommend the chicken umbertina.

    Basta never fails us!! While many restaurants post pandemic are understaffed and not operating as smoothly as pre- Covid times, Basta stands out. Fully staffed, as they were able to maintain all of their staff during this past year. Things were seamless. It’s was as if the pandemic never happened there. Food was phenomenal, service from Sarah was outstanding and our overall experience, just perfect. Indoor and outdoor dining both available!! Most all of their staff is proudly vaccinated to keep customers safe, too. This set us at ease. Owners are very transparent about it. Can’t wait to return!

    Excellent food and good service. Noise was moderate as we were seated near the main entrance. My only complaint is that seating is a little too close in some areas. The waitress could barely pass between chairs.
