“Rainy day rescue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

We got caught in torrential downpour riding our bikes through Santa Teresa one afternoon and ducked into Pasta Basta to seek refuge and some beers. We met Navi, surf bum from Israel who surfs in the day and bartend at night, dream job if you ask me. We came back the next night for some more beers, good burgers and more of Navi. Fun place to hang out.

“Yummy with great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

The food here was excellent and the service even better. We enjoyed a pleasant conversation with our server who was from Israel. We were informed from another review to get the mojitos. He knew exactly who wrote that review and the mojito didn't disappoint. It was amazing! Thanks bro, pura vida!!

“Great service.....great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

Eating in Santa Teresa is not the easiest of affairs. Marginal resources and trying to placate the multinational tourists has to be difficult, but this place did great. I think we ate there 3 or 4 times over as many days. The hospitality was notable, especially after our first couple of visits. While I don't eat pasta, I had no problems enjoying fresh sliced tuna, whole grilled red snapper, and even the tal burger.....and I don't even eat burgers here in the states. this is 100% thumbs up.
