We go to Basta Pasta and have never been disappointed. The food is outstanding....from traditional italian dishes to their nightly specials..we always have a hard time deciding!!!
The bartenders, especially Russ and Anna are always attentive, friendly and we always feel as if we have spent our evening with friends. We love the owner, Michael...he is always at the restaurant. I feel good supporting such a wonderful local establishment and highly recommend it to everyone.

OH MY GOSH! Everytime I recommend a restaurant it gets so popular I have trouble being seated...in this case I hope that happens anyway because the experience at Basta Pasta is
O U T R A G E O U S !!! The food is delicious, fresh, prefectly prepared, always consistent! I highly recommend the Chicken Chesapeake or the Chicken Francaise, but everything on their extensive menu is 100% satisfying. DO NOT WAIT to eat at Basta Pasta! Best time is Sunday after morning church service, around 11am! You will love it! Oh and the pizza, breadsticks, and cream of crab soup is to die for! GO, GO NOW. They have a new location in Timonium [the old steak and ale building] I ate there for the first time 2 weeks ago and our meal was perfect, service was exceptional. Love Love Love it~!

Saturday night I could not wait to go to Basta Pasta and have Italian food. We have been there several times. This time we stopped by at 6:00pm. They told me I would have a 30 minute wait. I have two children and we felt for Saturday night that is not a bad wait. After sitting in the restaurant for 35 minutes. I noticed people walking in the door and was given tables before my family and I. When I asked the hostess she told me that they take reservations and then call ins's and then walk In's. I told her I had been sitting there for 35 minutes and they told me that people that called just in the last 10 minutes would still be seated before me. I asked and spoke to the manager. She stated this was their policy. I explained that how can someone call up and be seated before me when I have been sitting in their restaurant for 35 minutes. I was never told their policy. She told me the policy was made before she started working there. I stated this made no sense at all. I asked her if I had called in 35 minutes ago that I could have been sitting at a table and she said yes and again this made no sense to me. I then said you are telling me if I sit there 30 more minutes and 3 more people call in that they will get a seat before me and again she said yes. I could not believe my ears. I have lived in Harford county for 13 years. We go out to eat every Saturday night and I have never been treated that way in any restaurant in harford county or anywhere. I left that restaurant that night very upset that in today's economy a consumer could be treated that way. I have been too Basta pasta numerous times and I have always recommended them to my friends and neighbors but in good conscience I could never do so again.

WOW we were surprised. My wife threw up all night. I understand when a mistake at a restaurant makes someone sick, and I would not make an issue of it, but I do have to metion this. As I said, my wife was very sick all night and we are not complainers. My wife called them to let them know that she was sick from their meal and to be aware of it ( she ate a seafood dish). She wanted to let them know that they should be aware of a possible problem, but the response we received is why we are making an issue of it. They took the attitude that we were a bunch of crazy people and that their menu and preparation techniques were impervious to error. Frankly, that is the wrong attitude. Be careful if you eat there. The management does not care about you even if you mean well for their business. Good luck and choose your restaurant well.

We love going to Basta Pasta! The food is great and so are the prices. You always get more than enough food and have enough to bring home for another meal. The sangria is my favorite and I love the atmosphere!

My husband and I went to dinner there for the first time and I was so pleased with everything. I ordered the Chicken Marsala which was one of the best I ever tasted. My husband ordered the Chicken Chesapeake and he said it was full of lump Crabmeat. The service was excellent. Krista was our waitress and couldn't have been more attentive. This is now one of my favorite restaurants.

Incredible food and atmosphere. Been there MANY times - can never decide on meal - everything is sooooo good! Can't leave without trying the homemade cheesecake - or at least take a piece home! Owners Mike and Yanni are wonderful.

Great atmosphere. Italian style decorations and beautiful paintings by my favorite artist (C. Mannning). The food is wonderful with great size portions. Prices are what you'd expect but well worth every penny! Mike the manager is super friendly and sees that his customers are well cared for!

PROS: Great food, and atmosphere
CONS: Remote location

I called Basta Pasta's Timonium location on a Saturday afternoon to make reservations for that evening. They told me it was first come, first served and we couldn't make reservations. I asked if there is usually a wait around 5:45

We went to Basta Pasta on a friend's recommendation - - and an underestimated recommendation it was. We were promptly greeted at the door, asked for preference of seating, and immediately shown to our table. Ambiance was very nice,
