Niemand van het personeel sprak Nederlands, meerdere malen om de kaart moeten vragen, vragen om drinken, ook meerdere malen, en de rekening kwam ook pas na twee keer vragen. Het eten is goed, bediening zwaar chaotisch, maar wel vriendelijk :)

The food was very tasty. The service was poor in the beginning. I guess they were short on staff and pulled someone from the kitchen. Later on we got a better waiter.

Food was, like always, amazing. Service was even better. It is a bit dark inside which makes rhe restaurant a bit winter-ish. But with the doors open it is okay.

The plates were not taken, untill we asked. They didnt asked if we want coffee or tea or a dessert. I had the feeling they were not really intressted in me because I didnt order a expressieve bottle of wine or something else. Food was good but very bad service.

+ Great location / great atmosphere in the restaurant
+ Very nice bar with great looking cocktails / nice decoration of the restaurant
+ Round booth tables were very nice to sit in with friends
+ Quality of the food was great
- The waiters seem to be in a hurry, food comes out very quickly
- The special pasta made in a big cheese wheel is great, but again the preparation of the food by the waiter went very quickly, not much effort or show, no nice talk or anything. The waiters all seem to be having a bad day.
- We ordered a bottle of wine by name, but after check-out we noticed that there were 2 bottles of wines on the menu with the same name. Without asking which bottle we wanted, they just served us the most expensive bottle and charged us full price.

The ambiance was great and the staff was almost fully Italian what made the experience better but the food wasn't outstanding in my opinion. It was nice but we ate for 40 per person (with a bottle of wine included), but didn't feel blown back by it.

Maybe a little over rated.
The pasta from the big Parmazan cheese is more like oil/butter then cheese. Pasta is very taste full but there is a big lack of cheese flavour.
The meat dishes are moderate. Noting wrong, nothing special.
The building en ambiance are very nice though!

Heerlijk eten en lekker buiten gezeten. Personeel spreek geen Nederlands en soms beperkt engels dat maakt het soms wat lastig. Maar eten en ambiance maakt alles goed. Beveel dit restaurant zeker aan.

This was a really great place to have our last meal in Amsterdam before returning to the US from vacation. We made reservations through Open Table and were immediately seated upon arrival. The service, meal, and everything was great.

Dear Sir,

I myself was really disappointed
I ordered spaghetti vongole and the taste was not perfect
I also missed the fresh grated cheese on my dish.
In my dessert, the Tira miso was absolutely no alcohol ?
But the people who were with me. They enjoyed the spaghetti parmezan and they were enthousiastic
I think that unfortunately I will not recommend my friends to go to your restaurant.

The food was amazing and restaurant very beautiful. The service was not that great, they mistaken with the daily fish and meat and the selected wine was no longer in stock. Also the wine was served late as the food was already on the table and then they still had to get the wines.....

The service wasn't as good as I was used to: there were missing 2 waterglasses of 5, not noticed by staff, champagne wasn't served well: totally full glass so they can empty the bottle. I think the antipasti plate was way to overpriced for what you get. The pasta was delicious, but there was a lot of difference in amount of sauce over the 4 plates. I really love love the place, but I hope the service will be leveled to the price of dinner, because otherwise I will not come back..

Expected bad service because of the other reviews, but it was not bad at all! We could see that this restaurant is always a busy place, which may be why the staff can come across as cold. But when we wanted to move from outside to inside after the starter they made no point of it at all. And when the drinks took a little longer (but by no means too long) they apologized immediately. A good thing to keep in mind though is that most of the staff is from Italy and therefor doesn't speak Dutch. But no problem if you speak English (or Italian)! The food was great! It is on the more expensive end of the spectrum for Italian food, but for a Dutch restaurant it is not overpriced at all, especially considering the quality of the food. Also, the offered water and bread was on the house. Great experience!

Had a great first experience at Impero Romano for my best friends farewell dinner.
I am for sure coming back and will order the truffle pasta again.

Staff was extremely friendly and the Limoncello shots got me pretty hammered, loved it.

Het restaurant ziet er erg gezellig uit! het eten is ook erg goed maar vond het personeel erg afstandelijk weinig tot geen contact met de gasten! jammer want de interactien tussen bediening en gasten is erg belangrijk voor de beleving van de gasten.
Misschien dat wij te vroeg waren ( rond 6pm) waardoor de bediening nog niet goed voorbereid was maar al met al zal ik dit restaurant zeker vaker gaan bezoeken en ook aanbevelen aan mijn vrienden en relaties.

What a great evening! fantastic food, the nicest people, and the best thing is that all the staff is Italian (including the great chefs of course). It felt like a dinnernight out in Italy. and whatever you choose from the menu, make sure you try the tagliolini al parmigiano with truffle!
We'll be back
