A tiny restaurant in the heart of the Machane Yehuda market- offering just pasta but that pasta is really something to write home about . Fresh , with large variety of sauce with fresh ingredients !!

The place is more american based than Italian. I asked for a glass of wine. So the girl at the stand poured it on a thick lemonade glass. It was not fresh. Probably sat on fridge for many days. The pasta is average. Like a mall meal at the foodcourt in the 90s. It's good as a light meal. Good... More

In need of a quick, cheap and tasty bite while in the shuk? Pasta Basta is for you. The pasta was fresh and everyone in our party enjoyed the accompanying sauces (rosa, alfredo etc). Finding a seat can be a bit tricky...

Great pasta restaurant, located in the heart of SHUK MAHNA YUDA - Mahneyuda open market. High spirit in the air, lot of smell and sound. Many combinations of pasta, very tasty. Beers, wine and light drinks. Cheep! Recommended...

Pasta Basta is almost always busy, because it's that good - great simple pasta dishes for the price. One of my favorite places to visit in the market. Highly recommend!
