We were disappointed in our table and the manager moved us to a more comfortable booth. The waitress was very pleasant and attentive to our needs. The meal was delicious and the drinks were generous. It proved to be a very relaxing evening.

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.

Salad and bread were very good. Eggplant parm was heavily breaded, too heavy for my taste. Overall, meal was good.

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.

Very good food, great service. They were able to roll with us when we were 15 minutes early and a party of 7 instead of 6. It would have been good to know that the salad was served dressed, so we could have asked for the dressing on the side. We know for next time. Lisa, our fabulous server, was great to bring a plain salad with oil and vinegar for my hubby. The portions were very large and almost everyone had food to take home. It was a great choice for my group, which included vegetarians, lactose intolerants, picky eater, and omnivores. The Tuscan sangria was really good too!

My husband and I went for dinner for our anniversary. The restaurant was clean and I thought the booths were interesting they were situated. Salad and bread are offered with meals. I had the Chicken Piccata and my husband had the Baked Rigatoni. My meal was good but I thought it was just slightly over salted. Our server was great and our food came out on time and hot. I will definitely go there again.

Our party of 7 dined there on a Sunday after noon to celebrate a birthday. The restaurant was not very busy at all so we were somewhat surprised at how slow the service was. Among the entrees we ordered were the Seafood Pasta, the Lasagna, the Eggplant Parmesan and the Blackened Chicken with Penne. Each of these were very good. We also enjoyed the salad that came in a large bowl for the table (although it would have been nice to know as we were pondering the menu that salad and breadsticks - also very good - were included with every meal). Overall, this location of Basta Pasta is a very welcome addition to the neighborhood's offerings and we will likely be back.
