If your looking for a different italian style this is the place. My favorite is the eggplant parm with a glass of their house malbec. The wait staff are the best part of this dining experience

Living up this way for summers, this was a great find suggested by a friend. Nice wine selection, and a good menu with specials and they will even cook a request. Nice homemade rolls to start the meal and a small salad in usually included. Haven't found anything north of Portland to equal this. My only negative is after eating... More

Have been going to Great Impasta for years. Good Italian food and attentive service, in a small local restaurant.

Quick service, have eaten there several times and always am impressed. The Meatballs are healthy, delicious, and never repeat on me! Lasagna is great too. Antipasto is mouth watering.

Had a piece of fish that was delicious, as was the appetizer. Not a lot of action, but my host really enjoyed his selection too! He'd been there before, was surprised it wasn't busier.

This was probably one of the best places I've ever eaten at while away on business. It is a small, quaint place with great service and awesome Italian food. I'd highly recommend this restaurant.

The Great Impasta is the best place to eat in Brunswick. It has the best service and the food is incredible! I have eaten here about 20 times and have always had an amazing meal.
