Basta Pasta - Eldersburg
As always, had an excellent meal and great service. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Absolutely love this place and apparently, so do many others because it is always filled with people waiting for seats. I always make a reservation and am seated right away. The food is delicious, plentiful and the service is always good. Great selection of appetizers, drinks and entrees and they always have a few specials each night. One of my favorite places to go in the Owings Mills/Eldersburg corridor.
I have been to Bssta Pasta many times, just love everything about the place. I have NEVER gotten s meal that I was not very pleased with. Keep up the good work!
We eat out almost every night, but had not tried this place yet. We loaded up the kids, age 5 and 14, and headed there about 5:00 on a Friday night. We arrived to no wait and excellent service, being checked on throughout dinner by numerous people. Food was delicious and pretty fast! Highly recommend the crab imperial! We will definitely go back.
While the entrees are usually very good, sometimes they are underseasoned. We were also disappointed in the appetizer special - which was supposed to be shrimp scampi served on Crostini. The bread was very soggy under a glutinous sauce with 4 boiled shrimp. Not what we expected for $14 and we did not eat most of it. All in all, we enjoyed our food but there is definately room for improvement. We would enjoy some fresh herbs or spices on our pasta dishes, which would bring them up to the next level.
Basta Pasta never fails us. My husband and I love having dinner there.
Sweet place to eat great food. Everything on the menu is appealing and our choices were excellent. The drinks were great and service was impeccable.
We usually have crab cakes, which are outstanding, but sadly don't get to eat Italian, which has always been good in the past and I expect remains that way. Next time there I plan to eat Italian again as I expect it will be as good as it always was in the past.
Super service wonderful food everyone is happy and helpful
Was our first time there so wasn't sure what to expect. Went for our wedding anniversary. The food was great. The only issue I had was seating. Would have preferred seating away from the larger groups and noise however the place was very busy so seating was what it was. Would go back for sure.
Always a beautiful setting for a date night. Love this place as long as I have made a reservation beforehand.
Food and service was awesome, very friendly atmosphere. Would recommend, great Italian food at a great price. We will definitely be dining here again.
Great night with friends. Everything was wonderful as usual !!!
Great as always. Good food, good service
Great food. Pleasant atmosphere. Decorated beautifully for the holidays.
Staff was friendly. Service was fast. But our first table was way too close to the party at the next table. It was very cold and somewhat loud.
Basta Pasta has been consistent in food, service and attention to detail. I am glad it has become a "count on" place to relax and enjoy the evening with friends and family. Until next time....thank you.
Food was great. The shrimp and orange roughy imperial was delicious. We also enjoyed the sangria. We will definitely go back.
Food was great. It was a busy Saturday night so dinner took a little longer than usual
My first visit to this lovely place, I was not disappointed. Planning to return at least once a week!!! The Honey Salmon was amazing and the Cream of Crab Soup was heavy with nice crab meat. The House Salad with its House dressing, that is serve yourself on the table, In my opinion was a perfect addition to the meal, very fresh and light. And the basket of bread was warm, light & seasoned nicely.
I highly recommend Basta Pasta! Treat yourself.
Great experience! Great service!! Mike was amazing and really made our friend feel special on her birthday!
This is a nice place to go for dinner with family and friends. The server was friendly and accommodating, and the food was delicious, making it a very pleasant dining experience.
The waitress spilled my drink all over the table Ian’s me it was cleaned up. A manager never came over and apologize d.
Reserved a table for 6 - 8 folks showed up and we were very easily accommodated. Our servers Sarah and Anna took GREAT care of us - and even gave us all separate checks. GREAT! Came to see band Liberty Road - which was great too. Hope you continue to have them back again and again!
The crabcakes are phenomenal! All lump... no filler
Awesome as always!!!
Great seafood and pasta meals...huge portions.
Good service as well
Service was impeccable.
Plenty of food.
Crab cakes were heavy and tasted great. Perhaps slightly undercooked.
Came as a group at six and they accommodated us by adding an extra table so we would be comfortable. Service was quick and friendly. Our waitress was very sweet and accommodated our every need... food was delicious... we happen to go on Tuesday night which was crabcake special night so a lot of us got the two crabcakes ...some of the best crabcakes around and we really enjoyed them ...they also made us a special soup of cream of crab soup with a scoop of vegetable crab soup in the middle ...we all love that as well and the crab toast appetizer. The only recommendation is maybe they should sell half craft wines instead of just by the glass ... we all got desserts which were some of the biggest deserts I’ve ever gotten at any restaurants ..
Definitely will be going back again
We made reservations for 4, were seated upon arrival. Waitress was cordial and seemed efficient. It seemed to be very noisy in the restaurant. The biggest problem, however, was we had barely started our entrees when bus boys or people assigned to bring food to tables kept coming and trying to remove dishes from the table. That was annoying. Then 3 times while we were all still eating, they came to interrupt us and ask if we wanted anything boxed up. Each time we said we were still eating. However, we all got the feeling that perhaps they wanted to get rid of us perhaps because none of us ordered alcoholic beverages. We most probably will not return to this restaurant. We have been to other Basta Pasta restaurants in the past and they were quiet with nice background music. wonderful service and good food. We all rated the food as mediocre. My husband and I were embarrassed as we had recommended the restaurant to our friends.
Visited on a Saturday evening with a party of 8. Our table was ready for us when we arrived, and from beginning to end our service was outstanding. Anita was our server, and she was perfect. She knew the specials thoroughly, answered questions cheerfully and was so helpful. Food was fantastic, we loved everything we ordered. Special favorites were the zucchini and eggplant chips, ants the crabcakes. Portions are huge, and we all took home at least half of our meal. We will certainly return.
Great food, service and value for your money!!! Our server was delightful and my Asiago Risotto with Shrimp and Veggies was delicious! My husband loves their Spaghetti Bolognese!. We also enjoy their breadsticks and salad. Another nice touch, is a manager is sure to stop by your table, to see how things are going. We're not frequent flyers, because we don't live in the area, but we always look forward to eating there with our C.County friends.
From the moment we sat down our waitress Aretha pressured us to order without anytime to relax or get comfortable. Our salad and food were our table within 15 minutes of our being seated. I informed the manager of our issue but nothing was done.
It was as though they wanted us out ASAP so they could seat the next customer.
Had a very nice birthday dinner with family. Food and service were very good. Restaurant was pretty crowded, so it wasn't quiet, but we were able to hold conversations without too much trouble. Food was very tasty and well presented, and portions were quite generous. They gave my husband a lovely slice of cheesecake on the house for his birthday. We will be back!
It was a wonderful evening, the food was delicious, the service was outstanding and the evening was very enjoyable. We have never had a bad meal here and will return again and again.
Food and service were terrific! We had noted that it was our anniversary, so at the end of our meal they presented us with a complimentary (large) piece of homemade cheesecake. It was delicious! It is a little loud in there as we were in the room next to the bar, but it's not terrible. Will definitely go again!
Great as usual. Stuffed salmon was amazing
We were unlucky in being seated next to a table of 3 rambunctious children. Our 3 children were very well behaved. Everything was delicious and Anna, our server, took excellent care of us. One person in our party has severe food allergies and Anna made sure that all was well, including making sure she got a special that was not being offered.
Can't wait to return.
Took my daughter and two children to dinner to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Reservations were easy to make ..... service was excellent ..... food was very good ..... staff was friendly. Been here before, referred several others and will definitely return !!
We have never had a bad meal or been disappointed when dining at Basta Pasta. I do have one recommendation. Add a French champagne to the sparkling wine list. The California wines are acceptable but a Moet, or Piper, or Mumms is a much better choice than the California Chandon that was offered.
