two types of meatballs = ground beef, and ground beef with veal. The veal added meatballs have more flavor, I think. Every restaurant advertises that they have the 'best crabcakes in town', but I think Basta Pasta DOES have them. they have the best flavor compared to other restaurants' crabcakes that I have eaten. Salad bowl has a nice variety,... More

Tuesday night is the night to go for a delicious 2 crab cake platter with salad and a side (might I suggest fettuccini with marinara sauce - quite superb). Great price $25.00 and we had wonderful service.

Basta Pasta is one of our go-to restaurants when dining with the family or a spontaneous meal with friends. We usually have a good time and good food. This meal was the exception unfortunately. Perhaps it was because besides their usual crowdedness they also had two large private gatherings in the back and the kitchen was overwhelmed? The usually ample... More

Came for the crab cake because it has a great reputation. It was ok, not great. It looked beautiful on the plate but was wet and mushy on the inside with lots of shell. Steamed broccoli ordered on the side had no seasoning and was ice cold. Salad was great and plentiful. One family member got chicken cacciatore and loved... More

We were a large party and we had two servers that were responsible for us. While there is always a little confusion with larger parties, I feel that the servers we had could have performed their jobs a little better. While some of us grabbed alcoholic drinks from the bar, soda/tea/water were included in our price. Since some of us... More

My fiancé said that she wanted to dine at Basta Pasta in Timonium, MD. Basta had catered a lunch event for her company.
