Impastatos vs Sal and Judy's

  • 8

Can anyone tell me whether Impastatos Restaurant is as good as Sal and Judy's? I've been to Sal and Judy's many times over the last twenty years but I have never been to Impastatos.....I believe that the two proprietors are brothers and the menus look similar. I don't mind going to Sal and Judys but instead of going across the lake I would like to know about the quality of Impastatos. Is it similar?

    1. Honestly, I think Impastatos beats Sal & Judy's hands down. You have to give Impastatos a try, you owe it to yourself. I am craving the crab fingers now. I can almost taste that lemony butter sauce!!!!!

      1. Totally agree with koogle. Sal and Judy's used to be much better. Impastatos has always been great.

        1. I much prefer Irene's, Eleven79, Domenica (lasagna is very good made w/ fresh pasta).

          1. Went to Impastato's with my husband the other night and we were very pleased with everything. We shared the dinner special and chose the seafood canneloni, and the ossobucco. We also saw someone eating fried shrimp and had a half dozen of those. The salad was lovely the service was very good. We will definitely go back with friends next time.
            I have never had a bad meal at Sal and Judy's. The food has been consistanly good for years in my opinion, but having Impastatos here in the city is a great choice when you don't feel like going to Lacombe.
