I have very much liked this restaurant since it opened, replacing an Italian restaurant that was once excellent, then changed hand and become pretty bad. Today I ordered takeout. I sat at the bar and ordered one drink while I waited. My order arrived, and the bill came with both my bar tab and take out order combined. I told... More

While my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the scrumptious food, we were quite irked by the poor service of our waiter. Removing plated food from the table without asking, and when asked 'What are you doing?' He seemed surprised we would even ask. Removed our glasses from the table without asking if we'd like another at any during our meal.... More

Yes it is a bit loud because the bar is large and in the room. Food is good, and wine selection is sufficient. The cacciatore was nice and the vegetable soup was great- home made. Prices reasonable so all in all, good value.

My husband and I had dinner with a friend at Basta Pasta. We were in Quincy on business and I checked trip advisor reviews for Italian food in the area. Basta Pasta had good reviews and was near our hotel so we decided to try it. We were very pleased. The service was outstanding. The bread was good and the... More

I agree that the arancini balls were yummy! Huge portions of pasta. The Caesar was very good with shaved Parmesan and a great house made dressing. I had the eggplant pizza, crispy eggplant with fresh mozzarella and basil. It was very good. They have a full bar but we were a bit disappointed that when we ordered a bottle of... More

Brought my son for his 13th birthday here! We had a lovely time. The arancini rice balls are delectable! I had Chicken Marsala and he had Chicken with Broccoli, etc. Good size servings (both had to be packed up for home!) and good quality. Very nice surprise! The ambiance was nice, too, and as we went early in the evening,... More

The four of us had just had a nice time visiting the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and we always like to eat at a restaurant for a late lunch or early dinner on our way out of Boston. We heard of Basta Pasta and thought it would be worth a stop on our way home to Rhode Island.... More

I loved my Mushroom Risotto! the steak with it was delicious and the Chicken Piccatta was better than the North Ends I have had. Local spot with the best food at reasonable prices!

We're not quite regulars but we often visit, sit at the bar, and enjoy a good meal at a reasonable price considering the quality of the food. I just tried a pizza with home made sausage and sweet peppers. FABULOUS!!!!!

We live in Marina Bay and we have been on this place many times, even when was another restaurant. The food is very good. Good wines as well. When is full it may be a bit noise. We will return. My wife loves the fusili.
