Went there many times and was a decent place. Last time I went for lunch, it was not crowded at all. Took my Grandmother and Mother, they decided on a dish and both have small appetites so they decided to share it. Nothing was said about a plate charge until the bill came and they decided to charge me $7.95... More

My family and I met at Basta Pasta after church to have great meal. Everyone enjoyed their meals and some had to take some food home because it was to much. It's nice place for family and friends.👍🏻

We eat here about once a month, best red sauce, best lasagna. Try the blackened shrimp and chicken. The staff is also very friendly. No need to go to Little Italy, food and prices are better here.

Perry Hall Basta Pasta food is generally very good, the downside to each Basta Pasta we have been to is the servers continuous walk back and forth up and down the aisle, constant interruption while trying to have a conversation and enjoy the meal....and I mean constant-----the servers we had , talked way to much, interrupted way to much----very very...

I have been going to Basta Pasta for years and I have eaten a lot of lunches there. I honestly don't think that I will go back. I think that they have gotten pricey for one thing and the service lacks. I went there yesterday with my husband and my mother in law. I dropped them off at the entrance... More

We had just finished visiting the sunflower fields in Monkton and stopped here for lunch on the way home. I had been here once years ago and recall it as being pretty good. The décor was very dark. Service was fine. What bugged me most was a sticky menu..yuck! We had a cup of cream of crab...not heavy on the... More

I have been hearing about this place for some time and finally had made it. So glad we did. This is the best place for a family dinner. The special mussel appetizer was so good. We did not know a bowl of salad and bread came with dinner. Between the four of us we had the Chicken Saltimboca, Spaghetti Carbonara,... More

We loved the bottomless salad with house dressing. It was delicious! Breadsticks were large, hot, and yummy - they are also bottomless. Breadsticks & salad are included with entrees. Shrimp mac & cheese was also very good, as was the honey salmon. Eggplant parmesan is also a good choice here. Lasagna was good - but not outstanding. The cons: service... More

Dang! The Waldorf Salad was so tiny and soooo expensive and $14 on a tiny little plate. I hear the pasta selections are better, but I will never no since I wont go back. Spend you money 10 minutes north for a far better value at Madonna Seafood.
