I have been hearing about this place for some time and finally had made it. So glad we did. This is the best place for a family dinner. The special mussel appetizer was so good. We did not know a bowl of salad and bread came with dinner. Between the four of us we had the Chicken Saltimboca, Spaghetti Carbonara,... More

We loved the bottomless salad with house dressing. It was delicious! Breadsticks were large, hot, and yummy - they are also bottomless. Breadsticks & salad are included with entrees. Shrimp mac & cheese was also very good, as was the honey salmon. Eggplant parmesan is also a good choice here. Lasagna was good - but not outstanding. The cons: service... More

Dang! The Waldorf Salad was so tiny and soooo expensive and $14 on a tiny little plate. I hear the pasta selections are better, but I will never no since I wont go back. Spend you money 10 minutes north for a far better value at Madonna Seafood.

Thursday's is the 4 course prix fixe dinner for $24. Our meal consisted of soup (MD crab for me - white bean vegetable for... More

While visiting family they took us to a very nice restaurant (a litte out of the way) with exceptional Italian food and dessert bar.

This is our favorite local Italian spot. The bottomless salad and bread sticks are amazing. My kids love the chicken dishes. My husband & I love the veal saltimbocca! Huge cake display for big dessert. Great Sangria. Can't say enough!

Consistently good food and service at a quality Italian restaurant. Nice atmosphere. It's one of our default places when we want to take out a nice meal or have a quick sit down. There is a bar side and a restaurant side. It's nice that they have them separate.

The food was good. More of a sophisticated and upscale menu. Not your everyday pasta selections. Not for the budget conscious. Everything tasted good though.

Yesterday we were hankering for italian, so we headed to one of our favorite spots (Basta Pasta). My husband ordered the special, which was Lobster Pot Pie. He didn't care for it much seeing it was quite salty and the sauce empowered the lobster taste. I ordered the Fettuccine Villa D'este which was very good. It is pasta with a... More

I usually love paninis but this was dreadful. My friend was new to paninis and decided to try the caprese since I was ordering it. Very bad decision. The bread was toasted with griddle marks but was completely dry and the sandwiches were not even warm. I mentioned it to the waiter who offered to talk to the cook but... More
