Good seafood

Every Monday features half-price wine, all day. I ordered a crab cake. It was good but not great. There were a few big lumps of crab meat, the rest filler. They used to be better in the past. It came with a very fresh and delicious salad and breadsticks. I chose the French fries for my side and... read more

Good food and a warm friendly place. Staff are friendly and fun. The cream of crab is delicious as are the crab cakes. A nice place for family and special occasions.

When in the mood for good crab cakes, this is close by and a great choice. The Italian menu is very good too! The staff is very nice and friendly.

I love the entrees here. They are very diverse and will please the seafaring as well as the land lovers. The crab cakes here are fantastic. Pasta dishes are as good as mine, I usually choose one wheni don't feel like cooking at home.

Basta Pasta has a huge menu of Italian offerings, great pasta combinations and all the traditionals like ravioli, lasagna, etc. We were there on Christmas Eve, it was packed with families celebrating, such a lovely atmosphere! We really like Basta Pasta but are not huge fans of pasta itself, so we always have their other menu items, which are also... More

Local neighborhood restaurant that is consistently good, you get an unlimited salad and breadsticks with your meal so don't fill up on that first as we often do. Depending on your meal and drink it can be just a tad pricey but it's nothing outrageous. Overall I think its a good place for dinner.

We've eaten here for years. Always good food. The salad is plentiful and you should bring an appetite.

My wife wanted to have me try the restaurant since she has enjoyed the food during other visits. Maybe Sunday night was an off night, but most of the foods my family ate was below standard. My eggplant parm seemed like the patties you might buy in bulk at Wal Mart, rather than fresh cooked. The broccoli was swimming in... More
