We had such an amazing time at impasta! Chef Antonio’s dishes were so delicious. We received excellent service from Ilyas and Ali. Thank you all!

Very tasty pasta dishes, good portion sizes and at a reasonable price. You can tell the food is freshly prepared. Would recommend.

Very very poor service and the food was exceptionally average. Bill was completely wrong and the waitress was rude when asking to see the bill…. No wonder. Wouldn’t bother unless it’s quick lunch or no where else to go.

It was just OK. The service team weren’t particularly friendly. They offer a range of pasta and sauces but the. Push pairings rather than what you ask. The mushroom bruschetta was nice as was my pasta dish, but the group generally felt the food was...too salty. The al dente nature of the pasta was fine but the amount of salt was a common comment. OK for a relatively cheap eat but given the other choices not somewhere I would rush back to.More

Smart solution for pasta restaurant. You choose type of pasta, add sauce vegetarian/meat/fish and size of your portion. I ate pasta with pork faces and it was delicious. They did have no change. Had to pay by card only

I’m not usually one to write reviews, but the customer service was horrible. The older gentleman was rude, saying that “people abroad don’t understand Italian cuisine”… odd since we live in Europe and have visited and eaten at authentic Italian restaurants in Italy… not chains...such as this in Malta. Their chef stands at the window and stares at the customers. I understand wanting to see customers enjoy your food, but this was excessive and uncomfortable. Now for the food reviews… Carbonara- Keep in mind their pasta is al dente, we had to request it to be well done to get our forks through. Sauce was smokey and burnt flavored, overpowered with the pork. No creaminess, just thick and left a bad taste in your mouth. They stated they only had pork cheek, even seemed insulted when we asked if chicken was an option (religious reasons or allergies would be a good reason for them to broaden their options, especially for a chain). Caprese Salad- cheese and tomatoes… or really a ball of cheese and some slices of tomatoes. When I questioned it they said that was my order, again very rude service. I think it was an appetizer, although no salad or even lettuce followed it and they still charged us. Would NOT recommend. There are so many other food options within walking distance. This place will automatically kill your appetite.More

Food wasn’t great and honestly the rudest service I have ever encountered from the waiter made it a very poor experience.

Great pasta! We love eating there and also in their restaurant in Sliema. Cacio e pepe is my favorite pasta there! Staff is friendly!

The offer, however they will serve you a very small dish, since they argue "because it is Gluten free". Better don't go
