Thoughts on...Basta Pasta or Bertuccis ?

fogfog | Oct 8, 2009 11:23 AM

Ok Reading from reviews on various venues leads me to believe for Basta Pasta

zero atmosphere
homey food
very inexpensive

So even if its not the "foodiest" will this be for a carb loading dinner?

A student at MIT recommends Bertuccis....

We are doing steak etc at Green Street Grill Fri night...

Are we better just taking the T to the northend and taking a chance there with a busy parents weekend/tourists/regatta crowds?
We are el dente kind of people (lived in Italy) but if I have to go to the line of Olive Garden food for the sake of eating at all that weekend...sigh..we will..
If I can--I would prefer to make a reserv today or tom and have a table...

What say ye? ;o)
