In the USA ‘hope Springs eternal’ and now more than ever we need some very positive vibes.

Impasto Italian Eatery opens to the Public on Thursday, May 20, 2021. Come and enjoy our tasty menu. Some traditional dishes and many that have our own twist. Our team of culinary professionals creates mouthwatering food! Talk to them in person in our open kitchen……up close and personal.

Enjoy our specialty cocktails, divine wine, quality beers, and more in Impasto Café.

We look forward to seeing and serving you.

    Nice open kitchen, the focaccia is a great way to start your meal. I also recommend the osso bucco entree. The budino dessert was outstanding.

    The clams in white sauce was very poor. There crunchy unidentifiable items and very few clams to be found. No bread was offered. They bill themselves as "finally a real Italian experience, but there are much better in the area.

    The food and atmosphere was excellent. The only downside was our server. He was either new or just not meant to be in the business. The other servers in the restaurant were clearly picking up his slack, and he was relatively inattentive.

    Service was fabulous, friendly, knowledable, responsive. Server could describe the wine characteristics, was very helpful; volunteered to bring samples. Food was good; the risotto was very good, pizza was pretty good. Noise level was a little high for us, but fairly normal for busy, popular restaurants these days.

    Service was slow probably due to lack of help. Waiter was very good considering his work load. All pastas were a little spicy for our tastes. Waiter should have warned us while ordering . Pizzas looked good from across the aisle.

    Nice wine by the glass menu (loved the Nero de Avola), nice mezclun salad but the fresh pasta was over cooked and the scampi overly tart. Distracted service.

    The swordfish and duck confit dishes were wonderful. Wine selection features some good Italian wines. The service wait staff were exceptional especially in these covid times. The owner stopped by table twice to greet us and check on our meals. One of the best meals we have had during these covid times. Got quite crowded for a Thursday nite around 7:30.

    I like Impasto very much - this was my third time there. The Cesar Salad with anchovies and Shrimp with Pasta are especially good. And wonderful Focaccio! Usually the service is excellent, but this time we tended to be forgotten - until I finally had find a waiter to complete the service.

    Despite the apparent effort to dampen the noise level in this previously extremely loud space with sound absorbing panels, it is virtually impossible to conduct a sociable conservation in an even moderately-full crowd of diners. So while the food is reasonably good and our server was very attentive, even comping a glass of wine when it wasn't delivered to the table in a timely way, it's doubtful we'll return for a weekend-night meal. Maybe lunch.

    Dinner was delicious! My husband had shrimp risotto & I had steak pizziaola (?sp). My steak was cooked to perfection. Food was presented really well. Our server, Simon was attentive, knowledgeable & pleasant. We were visited by the host/manager & he was equally as nice. We tend to be Italian food snobs since we live so close to Boston’s North End. This was just as good!! Will definitely be back!
