Another visit to Impastato's and another great dinning experience, Everyone's food looked good and tasted better. Service was excellent. This is my favorite Italian restaurant in the New Orleans area.

I went here for a rehearsal dinner and was impressed with the food. Their lasagna is delicious. My friend had the veal parmesan and raved over it. I highly suggest this restaurant if you love Italian food and/or are looking for a private meeting space.

The restaurant was tired looking, with a jammed in feeling of when there were fewer restaurants in town and a diner had to tolerate poor surroundings. The service acted like they were doing you a favor to bring everything and the food was mediocre at best for pretty healthy prices. Just don't do this.

We spent three days in NOLA and decided to return to Impastatos for our last night. Should have gone every night! Was the best meal and service we had and the cost was half! The homemade pasta and sauces my favorites. Fish very fresh. Sauces just right. And the special 3 item or 5 item dinners are a really big... More

On a recent trip to NOLA, on a whim, we went to Impastato's -- something we have not done in about 15 years. The place has not changed a bit, either physically or quality-wise. It is just superb. You cannot find a better fettuccine anywhere, including Italy. The gumbo and redfish were also excellent. We're going back to NOLA for... More

I have always had an excellent meal here. The multi course special is indeed an excellent deal. The service is also top notch.

Had a birthday dinner with family and friends. Called in a reservation, and upon arrival, Waiter seemed like there was no record of it. Mr. Impastato said "put them here in the back". We were seated next to the reception room, and there was a party for a coach and his teenage girls team. Waiters were very attentive and the... More

Ate here for mothers birthday. Food is just ok! Just wasn't impressed. Ordered the calamari and Ricky Jackson crab claws appetizers, gumbo, and fish Marcello, veal Marcello and veal Parmesan as our entrees. The fish Marcello sauce was watery with little flavor. The veal Marcello was filled with crabmeat but not with nice lumps of crabmeat, the veal Parmesan tasted... More

THe atmosphere, service and food were delightful. There is a gentleman who sings in the evening and even does "happy birthday" for celebrants.

If you are a fan of soft shell crabs, you won’t find a better one anywhere else. This place serves a full course meal with salad, pasta, crab fingers in lemon butter sauce, and desert at a bargain price. The secret to eating the full course meal if you have a normal appetite is to not eat the delicious hot... More
