“Excellent Food....Poor Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Today I visited Besta One again and as usual the food was fantastic. However, the server left a lot to be desired. She waited a good 10 minutes before she even approached our table to take our dirink order and we ordered our food shortly after the drinks arrived. Then we waited and waited and waited. All we ordered were two salads and 2 slices of pizza. ( There were just three of us.) The salads were finally brought but the third woman had to wait an additional 5 minutes before her slices of pizza arrived. Our server never seemed to finish what she set out to do. We asked for checks and she came an took one at a time. One of my friends asked for a box for her left overs and again we had to wait while she took an order from another table and the she brought the check to someone else and when we asked for the box again she said "oh ya", "I'll get it". Needless to say our tips weren't up to our usual but then again neither was the service.

“Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

This is one of our favorite restaurants in the area. Great food, great service, and the garlic knots are to die for as is the antipasta salad. We have eaten there many times and have never had a bad experience. Very reasonable prices.

“Family dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

I love this restaurant. It is by far the best in the area. I've been there three times and the food is fantastic. The pasta dishes are large and can easily make a second dinner the next night. I have never seen a serving of eggplant parm that looked and tasted as good as theirs. The garlic knots are not low calorie but are divine. The service is great and the atmosphere is nice. I can't wait to try more items.
