“MORE THAN A PIZZA PALACE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Arrived after 8:00 pm. Was seated quickly and served more than adequate portions. The bread sticks in buter were special as well as the pasta with ground sausage. It was Saturday evening and the area was alive and well. Parking was a bit tight and traffic in the area was heavy, plan on a return fest on next visit.

“A Treasure Trove of Taste!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

This one is a little off the beaten patch for tourists, but it is one of the best pizza places I have ever encountered. I heartily recommend that you make your way down the Bardstown road to experience the flavor of Impellizzeri's!
The restaurant has a bar which will allow you to get a glass of wine or a beer while you are waiting for a table on Friday or Saturday nights. Even if you have a long wait, it is totally worth it. Everything on the menu is made fresh and has distinct aromas and flavors. You'll come for the food, but you're going to come back for the service. I was amazed that the waitress who served my group remembered one of the guys in our party. he said that he had been there once before (about a year ago) on business and it was he who recommended it. I almost felt like family we were treated so well. The server was attentive and had great answers to our question as well as recommendations suited to what we told her we liked. I cannot wait to go back to Louisville and have another slice of their amazing Za!

“Favorite pizza in Louisville!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

The pizza here is amazing. I can't believe I lived here my whole life and only discovered this place a few years ago. The only downside is they don't deliver, but it's worth it to go get it.

“Good pizza and pasta...Good portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

We ate before a Louisville game at the downtown location. Atmosphere is nice and service was good. Pizza was good with ample topping and the fettuccini was creamy with good flavor. I had the Stromboli which was ok maybe not the best choice on the menu. Overall good food and service and would return

“Game Day - Downtown location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Perfect place to meet for game day pre/post festivities for CARD fans. The beer is frosty cold & you will not leave hungry after devouring one of their specialty pizzas. Our gang enjoyed the meats & veggie and both were excellent. There are plenty of TVs to catch the action on and a great variety of seating, including the sofa area. This is one of our favorite downtown pizza places.
