Presented in a warm and cosy atmosphere, it is a great stop for all occasions including the after work pint, awkward first dates and Moms 60th birthday celebration.
Impertore offers a very varied cuisine and you can enjoy fresh and homemade products such as meat, fish, legumes and our fine and delicious handmade pasta.
Our restaurant is BYOB!
Service is very slow and not as attentive as should be. Food was great. Second time service was fair.
The ambience with Michael gently and sweetly playing wonderful melodies on the guitar was truly special for our 38th wedding anniversary! We will go back many more times!
We love it there - but our last visit was disappointing - the service was less than acceptable by our VERY young waiter ... we were celebrating a special occasion and were less than thrilled . Some dishes were excellent ... but the burrata tasted sour and our meet Entree was served without the slightest sear - so the fat was still very rubbery ... mgr brought new dish - but by then our celebration had lost its appeal while everyone’s else waited for the last person to inhale their meal. We will go back - but not every week or so as we had been !
Quite a bit better food than ones average Italian red sause restaurant.
Outstanding Food and Service. My go t o here is the Branzino and rack of lamb but everything is delicious.
Every one in party of 5 enjoyed their dinner. The lamb meatball appetizer was a hit as were the two veal entrees, both seafood pasta dishes and the dover sole special. Would recommend highly.
Imperatore never disappoints. Delightful food and good service. The chef/owner clearly cares about his customers and wants them to be happy.
The service was extremely attentive- the food was superior - I can’t wait to go back !
Relatively new BYOB right in our neighborhood. Met my friend for a girls night catch up. Enjoyed great food, excellent service and not rushed so we got to enjoy each other’s company as well. Extensive menu choices made even better with varied dinner specials. Portions perfectly sized- filling but not “stuffed”. Definitely will be back!
I am never disappointed! The food is always very good.
We had a delicious lunch. I loved the artichoke soup and the strawberry salad. I shouldn’t have had the chocolate hazelnut pie but I couldn’t resist. My friend had the lemoncello cake and loved it. If you want a quiet place for a delicious lunch, this is it.
It is a lovely restaurant
The only, quite big, disappointment was that this Italian restaurant did not serve Italian (or any for that matter) wine! We, from CA, are not used to restaurants only serving half of the culinary spectrum that a country has to offer.
Second time there in less than a week. New favorite restaurant!
The restaurant was new to us although I had heard good things about it. We were seated early and everyone was very attentive throughout the entire evening. The burata and calamari appetizers were very good and the specials of Branzino fish and veal chop with lobster Mac and cheese were very excellent. Noise level was low and by the time we left the restaurant had filled up. One suggestion: the specials they offered on the night we were there were very good but a bit higher priced than the rest of the menu. It would have been nice to have the staff indicate the price when they ran off the list of what the specials were. I also should have asked but it would have been nice for the staff to also announce the price.
The chefs here really know what they are doing and the produce incredible dishes! Service was great, but there is some room for improvement. As a new restaurant I am sure it will only continue to get better! Looking forward to many more visits.
Imperatore is one of my local great restaurants. We had dinner on Valentine's Day and they planned their regular wonderful menu. They had a great deal of specials to offer besides the menu. We decided to have salads and two appetizers each instead of a main course. I had the mussels and clams and it was just fantastic. The broth was to die for. I used a spoon and bread on the broth after the seafood was gone. My second course was the grilled calamari. It was cooked to perfection. The calamari was juicy and very tender. Many other restaurants overcook calamari but the chef at Imperatore knows how to do it correctly. Our dessert was a almond cake and it was just great. The sound level was very low which is a real plus and rare in the restaurant business. The service was very attentive as well. What more could we ask for! Great meal for a good price.
Food was delicious. Thanks to the chef. Service was excellent Thanks to Dominic Maria and Adele. Five star
Like this local BYOB and had delicious Dover Sole with mixed fresh veggies and Potato wedges. Dessert was good as well. Husband liked his oysters and seafood risotto. The only thing that I didn't care for was the shrimp bisque soup which was the special that day. (Too bland)
Every time we go to Imperatore the food is excellent and the service was great.
Delicious food with great service.
Second time in the past month. Both times the reservation was honored very timely. The service was terrific. And most importantly the meals were delicious. Altho, the portions on our first visit were much more generous.
Our new favorite BYOB, excellent interesting menu. Finally a restaurant where you can hear each talk
The appetizer specials were delicious and fresh. I loved that there were a lot of KETO options on the menu.
excellent food, service, and value!
have been here several times & always have great specials
Had a wonderful meal. Started with a chestnut soup special. It was wonderful. This was followed by salmon on lobster risotto which was also great. Portions large. Both my wife and I took 1/2 meal home. Not at all noisy. All in all, wonderful meal. Definitely will be back.
The salads at Imperatore were very good. The Cobb salad was a good size and presented nicely. The salad Nicoise was excellent and served with anchovies by request. The service was excellent. The lunch menu was large and it was difficult to decide what to order.
Great food and service. We will be back!
Don’t let the strip mall location fool you..... The food was excellent and the service was wonderful. We love this BY0B option in Blue Bell. Our appetizers, meals and dessert were spot on.
Delicious and great service. Great neighborhood gem
Great food, Great pllace
Second time and it was as good as the first. Great neighborhood restaurant. Please keep it a secret.
Had a wonderful dinner was amazed how attentive staff was. They were able to tweak two entrees was most appreciated by that! Felt like we were in Italy enjoying a evening of conversation with good friend good food. Love when I am not rushed out of a restaurant! Second time back will follow by a third time!
A great dining experience and BYO! Service is personal and plentiful. The food is creative and delicious. Take your good wine!
This is my third time at Imperatore and I should say they still impress me with great service and great food, the additions to the menu are very creative and delicious, I had the porterhouse steak well executed, my wife had the Dover sole and she said it’s the best she ever had , the BURATTA salad is amazing, I will keep going back and support this hidden gem even it’s getting harder to get a reservation .
Dinner was a 180 from our experience the previous week. We got there earlier vs. 8pm so the pace was more relaxed and service better. Arugula salad was delicious, Gorgonzola gnocchi were decadent and creamy, exactly as you would want them to be- we could not get over how delicious they were! We then split a special fish over blueberry pasta that was incredible. I will chalk the previous visit up to them being overly busy that night, excellent experience this round!
Surprise birthday dinner
This is a very noisy restaurant so it was really hard to hear the soft spoken servers. Food presentation was very good, but the quality of food was average for an upscale restaurant. All of the portions were on the small side for the price. Would not go back.
Great from start to finish. The chef was even willing to make a special dish using only my childhood memories. Ambiance was great. Service was great. Food was great. I will be back!
