    Pasta Basta: Italian

    by Acirfa Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After walking the length of the high street, we decided on sampling dishes from Pasta Basta, a good move!

    Between us we ate a Calzone and a chicken salad, both of which were very tasty and huge servings to boot.

    It was clearly a venue used by locals and tourists alike. We sat in the 'conservatory' area, watching the world go by and enjoying a relaxed and almost homely feeling, that may have been due to the chef popping in now and then to cuddle his baby and speak to his family, who were 'eating out tonight'.

    The cost was quite the opposite to extortionate, approx £25, not bad going when we bumped into people who had paid £110 for two in an average restaurant.

    Pasta Basta: A Great Italian Place

    Cozy ambience, good service, and great food. Pasta Basta is a good place to go to if you're looking for a break from the hot dogs, hamburgers, sandwiches, and other common foods that are a product of your cash rationing.

    Within minutes of sitting down, you are served warm, soft bread with an olive tapenade. I tried the lasagna and was fairly pleased.

    Favorite Dish: Panna Cotta (a thick Italian cream dessert) was awesome at this place!

    Pasta Basta: Don`t miss the Lamb

    by Jarra Updated Apr 4, 2011

    As Italian as apple pie! What?? This restaurant is slightly eccentric Italian restaurant where beside the aforementioned dessert, you can dine on pasta, fish, lamb, and other culinary delights in a pleasant century-old building. A lunchtime favorite is the homemade pasta buffet.Dinner menu includes a selection of lamb, seafood and other delictes. Popular with a younger crowd.

    Favorite Dish: Seafoodsoup with basil as a starter. Grilled lamb with tomato and garlic and fried vegetables and Italian coffee dessert (Tiramisu).
