    Food was outstanding, venue serene but watch out for that “welcome” champagne that was $$$18 a glass . I was shocked to see a $36 charge on the bill for something that sounded complimentary.

    The place and the food are great but the service or better the organization of the dining room was one of the lowest I’ve ever found. I choose a garden standard seating and I was given a table into the dining room with zero lake view, despite the fact I also called the day before and ask for a good table since it was my parents’ wedding anniversary. I ask for a little candle on the dessert of my parents just as a sign of party and they gave the dessert with the candle to me and not to my parents. Not the mention the arrogance and the rudeness of the maitre while We are asking for explanation of the place. Probably they didn’t consider too much the bookings on this portal and I would suggest you to ask for a feedback of their use of your portal and make some investigations about their presence on this portal

    It was my birthday dinner. Food was good. Location is fantastic. View of the lake is amazing. Food is excellent. But I felt discriminated. I was given a table that was set far back while all white couples and families were offered table with better views. I feel it was either racial discrimination or perhaps because I was alone. I tried very hard to enjoy the evening but I couldn’t get this out if my head. Ideally I should have walked out but I stayed. Except the manager, the rest of the service was good. I will not return to the restaurant.

    Ristorante ImperialinoResponded on 24 August 2020I am very sorry for the feeling you had in the evening with us. I want to assure you that this company has no racial prejudice. I'm sure you have seen some of us with different skin color. The real problem is the lack of attention towards you. The restaurant manager did not understand your discomfort and his mistake ruined your evening here. As you wrote, everything else was excellent. Your review has given us the opportunity to improve and I really hope we can have a second chance to prove it

    We got the chefs tasting menu. The first coarse was scallops and was really good. Second was a pasta dish that was too salty and the third was a fish and chips that was was not good. The oil that they fried in was rancid.

    We dined with my girlfriend on Tuesday 3rd and it was spectacular. I have asked a romantic table as it was our first time in Italy, and I was very surprised to have a very private table. Service was discreet and polite, food was excellent, would totally recommend to anyone for special occasion.

    The location is great and we got one of the best tables by the water. However, it was my birthday and I was expecting something like a candle when I ordered dessert. I guess that is not something they do in Italy? Also, our waitress was not very knowledgeable on the menu. In addition, I ordered the Riso e persico reale alla moltrasina and I got a bone in my throat. I mentioned that to the waitress and she could not care less. I mean, she could have give me some advise on how to handle that.

    We had reservations with open table and I had gone to check this restaurant out earlier that day and confirm our reservations. Upon arriving on time at 8 pm, there were three tables for two available. We asked for the middle table for two that sat in the open upper level . We were left standing there while a loud argument started up with a “Prima Donna” SERVER who was saving the table for “someone” and argued with the Maiter D For 5 minutes. I mean loud yelling from this server walking back and forth yelling in Italian. She asked us to sit at another table. We said no, we had reservations and the table we wanted was open. Other servers and the Maiter D tried to talk to her, but she still carried on. Finally, the Maiter D allowed us to sit down at the table. It was so awkward and I was embarrassed. We were dressed up for our anniversary and we were looking forward to a fun dinning experience with a great view of the lake. Because it was her table, she had to wait on us and it was awful. I was so upset, that it ruined what was to be a very special night for us. I have never been treated so rudely at a restaurant. I myself owed an Italian restaurant for years and would never allow a server to treat any customer like this. We ordered wine and sea bass for two and shared a risotto appetizer. The bill came to $150. It was a waste of money. The food was mediocre. Instead of dinning here, Go to a place right next to it called “The Veranda”. Food, service and prices were excellent!

    Not professional service. Waiter dropped oil on the table without taking any remediation. We had to ask to cover the spot. The rest of the service was ok though. Food was smooth and not particularly tasting/seasoned. Location is just great and very nice. Seats were very uncomfortable.

    My wife and I visited Ristorante Imperialino whilst on our honeymoon. It also happened to be my wife’s birthday. I let them know before hand and they arranged a beautiful table in a pergola next to the lake offering the most romantic views, especially when a storm was brewing further down the lake. The service was excellent with our waitress wishing my wife a happy birthday, and being very attentive during the whole evening. The rest of the waiting staff were equally as brilliant. The food was fantastic, we ordered from every course and had the shared sea bass for the main event. This was expertly filleted at the table by our waitress. All in all an unforgettable experience for the celebration, made perfect by all the waiting staff and chefs of the Ristorante Imperialino.

    My wife’s birthday- venue fantastic and able to easily park in the hotel opposite. Service v good despite a new member of staff dropping a bottle of water on the table - was dealt with by an army of staff who descended the table, stripped it in minutes and brought out everything from fresh including drinks. Food good not amazing but atmosphere was top drawer :) will return

    Amazing location on the lake, Dolce vita atmosphere. Wine selection really interesting, with great signatures from famous Italian winemakers. Food is close to great but need some improvements to be at such price level. A we could expect a better service from people. Explain what you are going to eat, the wine you are going to drink with the "degustation" menu. Few things that could make this place unforgettable. Nevertheless, don't hesitate to experience this amazing place.

    Absolutely terrible experience at this restaurant. We tried to order cocktails and the servers were visibly annoyed. Then they brought us aperitivos, explaining they were courtesy of the chef, and proceeded to charge us for them ($42 euro for something we didn’t order). We had an appetizer and immediately left at how bad the experience and the food was. Would not recommend ever. Highly overpriced.

    Ristorante ImperialinoResponded on 10 August 2019Dear Guest, I think your review will not give to other people the correct idea about the restaurant. You order the drinks and those were charged on the bill. The food that was brought to you with the drinks was complimentary. I'm sorry the staff gave you such a bad feeling. I hope there will be a second chance to have you here and give you the most wonderful experience. Please contact me if you with to book, Best Regards, Umberto Butti
