The locally owned Fallston restaurant is opening a second Basta Pasta in the old Steak & Ale spot in Timonium. The target date is Feb. 1, said manager Matt Clary.
The new restaurant, which has seven separate dining rooms, has been refurbished with paint, new flooring, and lots of granite. The owners—Mike Sakellis and Yanni Livaditis—kept a lot of the wood from Steak & Ale. But the place isn’t as dark and dim as the old restaurant.
"We use the word intimate" to describe the ambiance, Clary said.
The menu will stay much the same with Italian and seafood dishes, though there will be additional offerings at both locations, such as more salads and seafood. Basta Pasta is open for lunch and dinner.
People in Harford County love this place. I kept meaning to get there, but didn’t. I can’t wait to try the new one.
