We visited this restaurant as a group and found them friendly accommodating and fun! The clam chowder was excellent and the flatbread mar y tierra was very good. The owner chatted with us and it was a fun and enjoyable experience.

Our destination was actually a few doors down where we wanted to try some Mexican micro-brew beer. We thought they served food but weren't when we were there. Basta Pasta came through for us and not just sort of! The food was incredible! We were a party of 13 and our food was out fast and warm. The clam chowder... More

He other pastas are not made in the house. The fettucinni is. It is great. It is not that "heart attack on a plate" dish, but in place of all the butter they use a spicy, chipotle dressing. The owner made a point to come and chat us up. The whole experience was worth the difficulty in finding the place.... More

Had another excellent dinner there last night. It's the best pasta I've had outside of Italy -- and is better than Italy's if you have other than fresh home-made in Italy! Attention to clients is excellent, menu is consistently good and prices are consistently fair. The non-pasta dishes are delicious, too! My favorite is his house-made spinach fettuccini with alfredo... More

The pastas and sauces are creative, delicious and are made from scratch, on-site in a spotlessly clean environment. I sampled several and my hands-down favorite was the cilantro pesto. Fresh and fabulous! The staff is upbeat and helpful. The place has a "fun vibe" but with serious attention to perfection in the meals they serve. We sat at an outdoor... More
