“Great coffee shop but also really nice food”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Excellent staff, really nice food, easy relaxed environment. We went here for an afternoon coffee and also had some lunch here as it was close to our hotel. Great for any kind of meal.

“Fantastic! a memorable meal of creative flawlessly cooked food”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

I can't say enough good things about Impronta Cafe. Unlike Bistrot di Venise and Osteria di Santa Marina, the chefs at Impronta love to cook. You can taste it in the food. The restaurant isn't particularly cozy, but the food is so good you won't care. Thankfully the lighting is good. As someone who likes to cook, it was exciting to see how they were doing new things with familiar ingredients. The service was great. I look forward to my next visit to Venice so I can go there again!

“Modern, Excellent Italian Food”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

It was quite a transition to move from the narrow and disjointed alleys of Venice to the sleek, clean, modern and upscale Impronta Cafe. It was a nice respite from the "graceful decay" of Venice to enjoy amazing Italian food, friendly and proficient service at reasonable prices. It was refreshing to see that they considered every detail, from food preparation, to ultra-clean facilities, to the sleek leather and ostrich skin covered menu books. We would definitely recommend and would love to visit again. If you do visit, don't skip desert -- amazing Tiramisu and panna cotta.

“Modern twist”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Among all the similarly dimly-lit traditional Osteria of Venice, this restaurant stands out as a beacon of modernity and chic eating. Bright and welcoming, the Impronta Cafe serves interesting traditional dishes like rabbit with a contemporary twist. Two courses with wine and plenty of bread came in at less than €65. Lovely staff, great food and a welcome change from the usual Pizza and Pasta dishes of Venice, it deserves its ranking

“Went back twice for Black Pasta in Seafood Sauce”
Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

This review is really about the above as that was all I had in Impronta for 2 nights in a row! Having said that, the food is generally of good quality and not at extortionate prices. No sneaky cover charge and it sure beats getting ripped off by the many other tourists traps dotted around the island.
