Basil Pasta Bar offers up a wide variety of pasta dishes to choose from as well as allows you to create your own dish from a large selection of pastas, sauces and toppings.
Cheap and pasta is not really my thing, but I had to make an exception for Basil. I had heard great things about it so, without a better place or thing to do, we came here on Saturday night for dinner. We had been here in the past and wanted to try out the create your own. Essentially, you get to choose your own pasta, veggies, sauce and extras. There is a lot to choose from and the restaurant has paid extra concern for healthy aka vegetarian, organic ingredients. The ratios are good for the quantity and price - yes, you might not be getting authentic Italian pasta, but the taste is still very good.
I JUST LOVE THIS PLACE! My buddy and I have been going to this little gem on Davie since the day it opened. EVERY TIME we order the pasta is just delicious. It is fresh made, lots of choices and for under $10. One of the best food deals in Vancouver. The Shrimp Pesto Linguini is excellent, as are the salads. Fast, friendly service. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
The Basil Pasta Bar is a small cafe on Davie in Vancouver's vibrant Yaletown neighborhood. I had a simple green salad with goat cheese and a Gnocchi dish with bolognese. They use fresh ingredients, it was well executed, terrific presentation, and best of all my meal with a salad and a drink was $15. One of the best values I've seen in any type of cuisine. It is a relaxed atmosphere with pay at the counter before and seat yourself policies. Its a must go if you are in the area, I loved it.
one of the worst places to buy food from. very disorganized. The web site said phone ahead. Then the guy who answers asked me to wait while he serves 20 people.
Then he forgets the phone . Lucky I have speaker phone. but these people do not know what they are doing
The pasta here is decently well also the salads.
The prices are very good and the service is great as it is fast.
Definetly having my weekly pasta there.
I like to seat there and eat ravioli four chesse and a ceaser salad.
the only thing i dont like about this place is that they dont offer you bread.
pasta without bread is like living without hands.
