Best service, crabcakes and sweets around! I would recommend going there anyday!
Always enjoy eating at Basta Pasta! The food is excellent!
Food was great but a bit pricey. Hands down for me much better than Olive Garden.
We are new to Eldersburg area. This was our second time going. Everything was delicious and service was excellent. This will be our go to place.
Excellent food and good service. Noise was moderate as we were seated near the main entrance. My only complaint is that seating is a little too close in some areas. The waitress could barely pass between chairs.
VERY NOISY. Tables extreme close together. Server even had trouble getting around to serve the food. Felt RUSHED!!
We were sat at a table that was squeezed into a spot that was very close to other tables around us. My chair was in the pathway and I kept getting bumped onto when people walked by. Will not go back during busy times
The food was absolutely delicious. It was a little noisy, but it was a Friday night, and we didn't mind because the food was so good!
I would definitely go there again. The food was enjoyable although a little costly.
Great food, great service
Fast and efficient service and excellent food. Crabcake was wonderful, broccoli cooked just right and salad always good. I always stop in on my trips from Florida. Never disappoints!
We have eaten here before and had much better service and atmosphere. Our waitress visibly tried to stay away from us, was quick and abrupt when she interacted with us and she was not friendly. She was not mean but did not make the experience for my daughters birthday pleasant. We were sat up front and every time the door open we were blasted with cold air. This was constant throughout dinner. They were busy and could not move us. I would have left if this was not for a planned occasion. I will not be back for a while at least and am truly not sure if I would recommend them
Amazing food, fantastic service, delicious drinks. All around great experience.
Even on a busy Valentine's evening, service and food was excellent!
Great food. Portion size is outstanding!
Service was fantastic!
Basta Pasta is our favorite place to dine. We have never had an issue until now. My lobster ravioli came out cold. I told the waitress and she took it to the kitchen and microwaved it, which overcooked the shrimp and made the pasta chewy. Everything else was excellent as always.
While the overall experience was good we were disappointed that our request to move our table from the direct sunlight was abruptly denied saying the many unoccupied tables were already reserved. We did however enjoy the amazing food and excellent waitress.
Our WAITER was GREAT! FOOD wAs AMAZING!!! CHEESECAKE is the Best’
The dining area was very loud. The music volume kept increasing and therefore everyone in the restaurant was trying to talk over it.
Food was outstanding and so was the service. This was my first time here
Excellent steaks and pasta dishes. Very gluten free friendly. Side dishes so so. Roasted potatoes were overcooked and dry. Asperagus not seasoned
Food was excellent service as well will be back. Food arrived very promptly was great, and our waiter who was doubling as bartender was on the ball. Never an empty glass and all dishes taken away promptly, wonderful server
I had the pleasure of dining with my daughter on a Friday night. Because I had made a reservation online, we were seated almost immediately upon our arrival. Our server, Josh, quickly brought us out drinks and gave us time to decide on our order. The food was delicious and Josh was attentive without being intrusive. We had a delightful time and an enjoyable meal.
Dinner and service excellent as us3. We live about a mile away, and dine here often.
Food as usual was outstanding and a good value for the money. Unfortunately on this occasion our server was waiting on too many tables and we waited a bit longer than usual. Overall the service was satisfactory and we will not hesitate to frequent this restaurant.
This has to be my 500th visit and again, never a disappointment!! If you are looking for the most amazing food in town, and out of town- this is your spot!! Also impressive is the low turnover in staff. We again, had unprecedented service by Tony, whom we always request. It’s rare to not have to ask for anything like a drink refill. Just the best, all around place!!
Basta Pasta has come a long way since they became a newbie in Carroll County. They have straightened out the kinks and have become more efficient in service, consistent in their flavors and have created an enjoyable, relaxing atmosphere for all to count on. That's all we need!! Thanks.
Excellent as always.
Basta Pasta is a regular for us. They are consistent in the quality of food they serve, cleanliness (even bathroom), and good service. We look forward to returning each time.
We have been here dozens of times and never a bad meal ! In fact, the one thing I can say is that the food and service are consistently fabulous. Madison took great care of us. The crab toast is never to be missed. Lasagna like no one else makes- I mean, who else makes their own mozzarella cheese in house!? Crab cake and lamb chop special was out of this world. As was everything else we ordered.
A place to frequent and not to miss!! Fabulous owners, fabulous staff and the most fabulous food.
Great waiter great food
Always get an awesome meal, just wish tables weren’t so close together. Staff is awesome!
Basta pasta is the neighborhood gem that it claims to be with one minor note. The one hostess will stare you down until you decide to leave. My group and I went and spend over $200 for just the four of us and once this hostess felt we had been there long enough just stared at us until we were done. The food is absolutely amazing and the waitress was friendly and attentive but if a laid back dining experience is what you want this isn’t the place. Come in with purpose, eat your delicious food and leave before she makes you feel like you haven’t spent enough to still be eating and drinking your food. And she’s been there every time I’ve been to Basta Pasta and every time has been the same. Stare at me if you must but I’m going to take my time and enjoy all the wonderful offerings your restaurant has before they are ruined by your awful hostess. Don’t worry we’ll be back but for carry out (although if you need help with this she won’t help you either “you’re at the wrong stand”). Might be awhile but till next time Basta Pasta!
Fabulous place. Ambiance is wonderful, service is spot on and food was delicious! Always a pleasure.
What can I say about Basta Pasta? A lot! This restaurant is a European oasis in the middle of Eldersburg! Can you believe it? The food, drinks, and desserts are simply outstanding. But it’s more than a restaurant. It’s a place to hang out and see the locals and chill and just enjoy fine dining and good friends. Let me start with the soups which are not to be found elsewhere -- crafted by master chef Yanni. Comfort doesn’t begin to describe his delicious and savory stews/soups/stoups. To die for. I officially nominate him as the Soup Meister of 2019 (and 2018 and 2017 when they first opened). Food Network would be lucky to have him as a master chef. And if you’re looking for the best prepared steaks that melt in your mouth then this is the place for you. I’ve tried the steaks elsewhere and I’ve been all over but Basta Pasta has without a doubt the best steaks you can ever want. Succulent and juicy and cuts like butter. Don’t know how they do it but they do! Forget the “steak houses” and come here instead. I have to mention that the crab cakes are simply the best I’ve ever had. So meaty and tasty…the kind you’d only find in the best seafood restaurants. Do yourselves a favor and get the crab imperial and you won’t be sorry. And now I must acknowledge the wait staff. They know how to treat their customers and know the menu very well. They will make your dining experience so pleasurable. They take their skills and bring it to your table as an art. Can’t say enough good about them. They love what they do and it shows big time. I like sitting in the bar area with the wall televisions. Their Happy Hour will make you VERY happy. Great selection of foods and drinks. During the warm season there’s a beautiful outdoor seating area for dining al fresco (and you can bring your fur babies with you). Reserve your place with Open Table because seating goes fast and it’s no wonder why. I have to stop here because … I’m heading back to Basta Pasta! Se
Great, attentive service from Tony. Excellent food. Becoming a favorite venue.
Food and service fantastic!! Thank you Sarah M for the best service.
Excellent dinner as usual. Although the restaurant was very busy, the wait staff was attentive. I do wish they offered more low carb offerings. I would like to swap out the noodles for spinach but there is an up charge to do this.
