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

This is a place you can take the kids or just the two of you. Staff was very good from the time we were seated never waiting long for our food. The stuffed shells were great my wife had ravioli that were also very good!

I've been there three times and have never left less than satisfied. They have a very attentive and courteous staff, a nice atmosphere, and every item I have ordered so far has been really good. So far, the Chicken Chesapeake is the best thing I have tried on their menu.

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.
