I view this restaurant as a sort of upscale Olive Garden. The entrees are more authentic and there are more diverse selections than you typically find at your local OG, but the place still had a chain restaurant feel to it. The food was really good though and they are generous with their portions (food and drinks). The service was only fair as they were understaffed but the waitstaff's teamwork was solid. My wife is not really big on Italian cuisine, so the restaurant has to be really stellar for her to want to go back and I don't think this place did it for her.

We have gone to the Basta Pasta in Fallston but never Perry hall. We met friends there for dinner and had a great meal! Our server was GREAT! She really made our experience there wonderful! She was so friendly, on top of everything, made recommendations and was even pregnant and still full of energy and great at her job! Our meals were all really good! We will be back!

The seafood pasta combinations were scrumptious, the salad, bread, and soups were excellent. And the portions were generous. Prices were very reasonable. Quiet enough to enjoy conversation with dinner. Highly recommended.

It was our first visit and we were very disappointed. They lost the ticket for our child’s meal. We waited close to 50 minutes for our food. Even the salad and bread took forever. The grilled cheese looked like it wasn’t grilled; bread was white. Crab dip had a sour taste. Best part was the veal Marsala. We won’t be rushing back.

Really need to do something with the dining room. Too bright, very open. Has the feel of a high school cafeteria. Booths in the middle of the room next to each other, other diners leaning over asking us what we got for dinner.

Basta Pasta never disappoints! Huge portions, delicious food, beautifully presented coupled with friendly attentive servers - checks every box for a family meal - even on Christmas Eve. Crab Cakes are a tasty work of art, and my husband believes BP serves the most delicious broccoli he's ever had! The Chicken Chesapeake is topped with a full size crab cake of its own and packs up well to go home for a second next-day meal. The home-made cheese cake this night was the absolute creamiest ever - almost a whipped consistency, it was so light. Left-overs are affectionately boxed up for you (like Mama used to do) at the end of the meal - just like a family dinner should be!

I've eaten here and at the Timonium location several times. The food is always great. Have to give a shout out this time to our waiter Tom. He was ever present filling up our soda, iced teas, water. In addition he also make sure there was enough salad and bread. When only 2 ordered dessert, he brought plates for all and even brought 2 additional desserts to share. And he was even willing to give us all separate checks.
