“Understandably high ratings.”
Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

This was the highlight of the Venetian meals.
Smart, spotlessly clean and modern, staff extremely polite (and bilingual.) Just down a street from the Frari.
Excellent orange gnocchi, marinated salmon, buffalo/tomato/ham salad, shrimp pasta dish - give the chicken a miss - overcooked and dry. Couldn't manage dessert! Excellent cappuccino.

Impronta is near other restaurants totally empty. This place is full with a wait at the door. You need a reservation and they were attentive to email.

A 'definite' for the list.

“Viva Impronta!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Even though the address on the Impronta website and on TripAdvisor is wrong, we found the Impronta Cafe nonetheless! Our reservation was for 7:00 pm, but after arriving at 6:00 pm, they took us in right away and gave us a table. We had local region Italian wine recommended by the waitress and it was very good. The restaurant was very clean and contemporary and has a lovely view of the sidewalk in front. The staff was very attentive and we had a really good time! Although the restaurant was not very busy when we arrived, it soon became full of people from all over! We really had a nice time and the food was great!

“Modern Italian”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

As with many places in Venice, we found Imprompta Cafe by chance. Enjoyed a superb lunch of black squid ink pasta with pesto and marinara, tomato and mozzarella salad and a glass of crisp white wine. Excellent coffee and service. If we can find it again, we will return!

“Great Modern Dining”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Booked online for this restaurant & glad I did as was very busy on a Friday night in Venice. We did have to wait 15 minutes for our table in the bar area which was quite cramped but had some drinks and enjoyed watching everyone else's food come out.

We had the mozzarella and prosciutto starter which was incredible quality, just the freshest ingredients. Then we both had pasta for main which again was very good. The atmosphere was busy but not cramped, it was a welcome change to be somewhere modern.

The only slight negative for this place was the service which was a bit hurried and abrupt, it was a busy night so can understand the staff being busy but a bit more friendliness would have been appreciated.

Overall would definitely recommend though for a good value, top quality, modern meal in a beautiful part of Venice

“Good service and prices”
Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

Just ate their with my girlfriend. They spoke good English and described to me what the Venetian sauce is after I wanted the ravioli. I got the gnocchi as my prima instead as I don't like salty sardine sauce.
