Service was terrible. I had to walk to the bar at one point to order another glass of wine. No one came up to the table to check up on us, to offer us a drink or anything. Very dissatisfied. Even when I tired to speak to someone about the service, no one seemed to be interested.

Ambiance is very nice, it’s a beautiful location! My friends ordered the pasta with truffle which was amazing. I had the risotto with seafood, which I would not recommend. The seafood is very fresh and nice but the risotto very dry. Not how it supposed to be. Service wise, after we finished our main course no one asked how it was. They just took away the plates without asking anything. They also didn’t ask if we wanted a desert or coffee, which I found very strange. The waiter that we had for our table only wanted to talk in Italian to our friend. I would recommend this place because it’s beautiful and the starters and pasta is great, but service was just poor in my opinion.

Although we had a reservation, we still had to wait for 20 mins to be seated. The waiter forgot to order from the kitchen our beef carpaccio, so we never got it. We ordered the pasta in the parmesan wheel, but they didn't prepare it in front of us, as they did for other tables. However, the food was very delicious. I would definitely go back and request to have the pasta prepared in front of me! Nice restaurant!

1) eten was bij het serveren onvoldoende op temperatuur
2) personeel was niet in staat om koffie te maken
3) de tijd tussen hoofdgerecht en dessert was veel te lang
4) voor de fruits de mer risotto waren de zeevruchten niet bij het gerecht; niet geleverd door de visboer
5) enige in het restaurant; te weinig aandacht cq focus door de bediening.

Al met al niet de kwaliteit die we gewend zijn van imperior!

Friendly waiters, good food. Probably of good quality but I do not have enough experience with this type of fancy Italian food to say anything about that. I was dissapointed by the lack of anything vegetables or healthy on the menu.

Amazing truffle pasta. Amazing service. Even when we reserved a table for 2, a friend could later join us after we got relocated to a new table. No problem what so ever. Lovely people. Amazing wine!!!!

I enjoyed every single moment in the dinner with my family. The waiters were all attentive, patient and willing to help. The restaurant was packed with people but they didn’t seem to be stressed by it. Very professional. Food was excellent. Portion is in good amount. And we have enough waiting time between courses so the timing of presenting each course was also very good

Het eten was lekker. Alleen vervelend dat er zoveel obers rondlopen en de hele tijd met elkaar staan te praten , en naar je zitten te kijken hoe je eet. En als je drinken dan op was , je zelf moest vragen of je nog wat drinken mocht (wat lang duurde voordat iemand op je afkwam). De service is niet heel goed. Voorderest is het een goed restaurant met lekker eten en een fijne sfeer.

Terrible service. It is not the fault of the waiters because they just dont get any training. Red wine poured into a champagne glass. When you say you want a nice glass of Valpolicella, they do not know what it is. Not recommended.

We had the parmesan truffle spaghetti, which is a dish that they seemed to be well known for. The spaghetti was literally just parmesan and fresh truffle, and nothing else. It could have been made better by adding something more to the dish, and also to have them prepare it at our table, as it then would have been an experience and more worth it. The tiramisu was very good though.

The experience at Impero Romano was wonderful. My husband and I both had the pasta specialty and it was delicious. My only criticism is perhaps the water was not quite salted enough when they cooked the pasta as it lacked a bit of seasoning for my taste. But the dish as a whole was wonderful once salt was added. The service was very good, friendly, attentive, and genuine. The atmosphere was very cozy and busy without being overwhelming or too loud. We had a really lovely evening and plan to return.

Het eten was erg goed! Het personeel was over het algemeen erg arrogant en de gerechten liepen op een erg hoog tempo door. Wij waren net klaar met ons voorgerecht, en kregen al het hoofdgerecht. Ook kwamen er 2 tafels van 4 naast ons zitten die erg luidruchtig waren op een halve meter afstand. Ik zal enkel terug gaan voor de kwaliteit van het eten.

It feels like home
My boyfriend and I went to Impero Romano last Saturday and I guess that’s gonna be the first of many other times. From the interior design, to the service and the food, everything reminded me of home. We had antipasto della casa, paccheri all’amatriciana and gnocchi al ragù. Everything fresh and homemade, just amazing! The waiter was also kind enough to offer us a portion of tagliolini cacio and truffle (their signature dish) and it was soooo good.
Totally recommended

Zeer sfeervol restaurant met ongelofelijk lekker klassiek Italiaans eten. Minpuntje was wel dat wij er voor de lunch kwamen en de enige gasten waren. Hierdoor werden we wel helemaal in de watten gelegd door de gastvrouw.

This a nice Italian restaurant where you can't go wrong really. We had a variety of appetizers, main courses and drinks (wine + aperitif) and all was served well, fast and nicely. Staff is friendly, prices are mid+ range. Location is nice. if the weather allows it, sit outside, so chilled!

Overall rating 8.5 out of 10.
