Very good food and reasonably priced. This is one of those restaurants that feels like home. My favorite is chicken parm, my wife says their lasagna is "to die for" and my daughter loves anything they do with pesto.

We've been here many times over the years and food has been consistently good at a very good price. Just took advantage of Brunswick's Restaurant week promotion and got appetizer, main course, dessert, salad and of course - those garlic knots - for $20.14 each. Although this was an extraordinary bargain, even on regular nights, food is reasonably priced. Each... More

We have lived in the area for years and heard all kinds of good things about this restaurant, but until yesterday had never tried it. We learned that all the praise was well-earned. The food was excellent -- the Linguine Pescatore was loaded with seafood and a delicious creamy Alfredo sauce; the Veal Saltimbocca was very tasty, but a little... More

The food here is always first class. I have been to the Great Impasta many times and have never been disappointed. The food and service have always been excellent. The restaurant is small and cozy and very friendly.

Beyond that I am not that impressed with this restaurant. The ambiance and service is fine, but last time I went the chicken I was served was very dry and quite frankly boring. I felt I could make something much tastier myself for a fraction of the cost. I gave the leftovers to my husband back at home and he... More

I hadn't been to the Great Impasta in several years. I was surprised to find a new and lovely décor. The tables were freshly varnished wood, and the side wall has a pretty intaglio scene. The lighting was subdued but not too much so, and the music was, happily, also at a nice background level, and of good sound quality.... More

The lasagna is very good. The garlic knots are a must. For dessert try the tiramisu. It's homemade and soooo good. One of my favorite restaurants in Brunswick.

A Friday evening so it was very busy we had to wait about 20 minutes. No real place to wait so a lot of us were crowed by the door. Staff very friendly the hostess was great. Got seated near a window. The waiter was sullen but efficient and the food was good and reasonably priced.

This place was excellent. They have a gluten free menu,my meal was fabulous a lot of choices right down to desert. Small restaurant and very popular, waited about 1 hr, but worth it, so make sure you call ahead. Reasonably price and wait staff was friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend and you won't be disappointed. The only real negative... More

Years ago we came here for a cheap Italian meal. The food was not great, but the place was pleasant. That was then. Since then many fine restaurants have sprung up in Brunswick, and hadn't given the Great Impasta a thought until today, when we went in for lunch. The place looked great, and was as pleasant as ever. But... More
