We dined early and our service
We dined early and our service was great. The food was reasonably priced and tasty. It was quiet at that early dining time and we were able to converse with ease.

5 stars again and again!
Had a wonderful experience, as always. We would (and have) recommend Sangiovese to anyone looking for a phenominal meal experience.

I'm a regular at Sangiovese.
I'm a regular at Sangiovese. It is by far my favorite restaurant. The serves are polite, friendly, and well versed with the menu. My experience there has always been excellent. The food is absolutely wonderful. Chris is very interactive with guests and has a great staff!
Although children are welcome, I feel the atmosphere is more conducive to an adult clientle.

Impressive dining experience.
We had a group of 14 and received great service and excellent food! I was relieved because I'd never dined here before. It turned out to be an excellent choice!

We went to Sangiovese for Mother's Day/Our Anniversary this year. We had never been before. I went out on a limb and got something I like, but usually don't get (veal marsalla) and my husband had the ravioli special. We had our 3.5 year old and 7 month old with us. They do not have a childrens menu, but could do any of the pastas as a half order. I could see that other than Mothers Day, it would be a better experience without kids. Both meals were delicious and the service flowed nicely. I can't wait to try it again without the kids and actually enjoy a quiet meal there!

Food and drink always go better with appropriate live music. Sangiovese often offers up a small group of musicians and vocalists that compliment the ambience and good food. The intimate setting is complimented with attractive menu items and gracious service.

Our reservations were for 7PM and we were seated immediately The waiter was there to ask us for drinks and very helpful in answering our questions. The food was prepared with our requests and came out hot and quite tasty. Everyone smiled and you could tell they were enjoying their jobs that evening.

Great as always
Another pleasant evening on the outdoor terrace. Filet special was great, service was great. We will be back again.

Missing out on a treat
Maybe we hit a special weekend but this wonderful restaurant only drew a small crowd on a recent Friday night. This open tables amaszed me as the service was outstanding, the food excellent, and the value right on target for a high end restaurant. If you have not tried this gem on the North side, with live entertainment, you need to treat yourself.

Great dining atmosphere. Lots of outdoor seating overlooking the river. Nice bar area for dining and viewing, listening to the entertainment.

My friends and I had a lovely dinner on Sangiovese's beautiful patio - perfect quiet spot for dining outside with a view of the river.
We shared the yummy torta caprino appetizer and each had a good pasta. My shrimp fra diavolo was tasty with just the right amount of spice. The service was friendly, attentive and not over-bearing. Sangiovese is consistently good and never disappoints.

The food was excellent! We didn't care for the seating outside (not on the balcony but below as you go out the door). We will be back.
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food, the service, the ambiance were all excellent. We celebrated my wife's birthday and she was treated royally! The tiramisu was to die for! The best we have had in the city.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good food and great service waitress was very friendly and attentive. Ate on the patio it was a beutiful view. We will deffinetly go back.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is one of the best restaurants I have eaten at in Indianapolis. The food and service were excellent. We had the scallops special. I can't remember ever having as good scallops and the amount was just right.
We ate outside but in walking through the inside the ambience was really nice. The piano player was a nice touch and it wasn't overwelming.
Service was great! The waiter stopped by just enough times-not too littler and not too often.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service is excellent and so is the food. They have a large covered patio with and interesting view. We ate in the bar. Very cozy!

Our local favorite -
great italian food and friendly service - would recommend to anyone!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
1st time visiting this restaurant, but not the last time. Dinner was very good, service was very nice, and out of 4 diners, not one doggie bag was taken home. We ate everything placed in front of us! This will be our "go to" Italian restaurant from now on.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dinner prior to show
Being a Sunday night at 5:00, it was a bit quiet in there. Certainly early for dinner. The weather was beautiful, and the '400 had just been run, so that could have impacted the crowd. Perhaps this is more of a Thursday-Saturday place. All we can say is the food and service were outstanding. We came in from out of town to see a concert at the Palladium, and let's just say the food and service hit all the marks. We both had pasta dishes that had shrimp in them, and they were cooked just right, a nice healthy size, compared with what we are used to. It's near the Keystone Crossing area, and we highly recommend that you check it out.l

Good food, okay service
Our meals were excellent. However, our waitress Connie was not very attentive or friendly. She seemed to just be doing her job and going through the motions. Loved the tiramisu, though there was too much chocolate syrup in my opinion.

We just love this place...!
We just love this place...! Great food, great service.. a hidden gem....

The mussels in white wine and garlic are the best I have had in Indianapolis. The food is consistently excellent - wait staff knowledgeable. My husband believes that their lasagne is the best, by far.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fabulous food and atmosphere!!
The chocolate martinis were great. I had the tomato bisque which was very thick and tasty. Then we each had the fish special of the day, followed by the fantastic tiramisu. This was our second visit in a month - celebrated a birthday last month and an anniversary this month. Will return to try other dishes! Also, the waiting staff was very professional and friendly.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Service and Food
This was our first time trying this restaurant and we will be back. We sat in the bar area and there was a piano player that night which made the evening more enjoyable though next time we will try the outdoor dining, it was booked by an event so we were not able to try that. We had the steak filet with mashed potatoes and vegetables which my husband said was very good and I had the stuffed pork loin that was very flavorful but a bit dry perhaps over done but otherwise very good. Next time I will try a pasta dish. The waiter was very nice as well as the rest of the staff. We are looking forward to dining outside next time. The prices were very reasonable also.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were a table of 4 and we all had excellent dinners. Great service as well!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant will not disappoint! The food and waitstaff were great! It was a a little bit louder in there, but that did not bother me. I will be coming back!

We were at the restaurant for an anniversary. We had a very nice time. The food was excellent and the atmosphere very relaxing.

Very warm and friendly staff along with fine food made circa wonderful birthday dining experience.

Yummy and laid back
The whole experience was great. Fantastic food, both starters and entrees. Service was great to start with, then kind of faded, but good overall. Highly recommend for a not-to-pretentious Italian night out. Great wine and bar selections...

Our go to Italian
We enjoy Sangiovese about once a month. The food is always excellent.

This place was amazing! Although I probably went when the age group was older people at the time, I still had a blast. Our waiter was funny and accommodated to all our needs, he was very friendly and welcoming. The restaurant was beautiful and each corner of the place caught my eye. It had a very light and calm environment and the pianist was delightful as the background music. I truly preferred him to the usual radio music. The food arrived so quickly it was astonishing and we were seated the moment we walked through the door. Firstly, the food was amazing I loved it, not only was it prepared timely but the flavor it held was extraordinary. Overall the service was superb, the food was out of this world, and the setting was wonderful.

The food tasted excellent! Great flavors. The service was fantastic and friendly. I recommend dining at this restaurant. Oh, the prices are reasonable too. Nice wines.

Perfect spot for a quiet conversation and good food. Great atmosphere. Felt like we stepped into a different city,

Wonderful upper edge Italian food
All the food was prepared perfectly. The veal was perfectly done, and the veggies and whipped potatoes were great. Wife's seafood Ravioli was cleaned up, so she must have certainly enjoyed it. Was a beautiful night to sit on the back patio, and our waitress was the best. I am in there for Biz dinners at least once a month, and decided to take my lovely wife there last night. That must tell you something, with the choices we have on the north side.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Northside Nights menu
Went to this restaurant because the Northside Nights menu included a glass of wine. Excellent choices of entrees and a very fulfilling evening out.

Recently dined at this restaurant for a friend's birthday, we had an awesome time. Drew was our waiter and made sure that everything was to our liking. I recommend this place for a romantic dinner, business meeting, catch up with friends, any occassion. The night a went they had live music, planining my next visit soon.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We first ate at Sangiovese 10 years ago for a special occasion with family. We have since eaten there numerous times and selected it for our anniversary. They did not disappoint. Greetings of "Happy anniversary" at the door and flowers picked up at the florist by the owner were only the start. We both selected fish as an entree. Cooked to perfection would be the only way to describe both, and the accompanying saucs were perfect complements. Thank you to all who made for a wonderful dining experience! We will be back...
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was the second time iin two weeks that we went to this restaurant and we weren't disappointed. The food was very good as was the service. All dishes including the specials were nicely done. We even requested a specially cooked calamari appetizer which the chef made and it was excellent. This is a sign of a very good chef and a well functioning kitchen. Great job!
Sangiovese is definately one of the better, if not the best, Italian food restaurants in Indianapolis.

First visit to this restaurant.
First visit to this restaurant. The host sat us quickly and we were greeted by a waiter. We were served a different wine than we ordered but enjoyed it anyway. The food was good but had some issues with the training of our waiter. He reached across the table to fill glasses or remove plates while we were eating. Overall, the restaurant was full and the menu was priced reasonably.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time here, and we were not disappointed. Great food and decent service.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
I have dined here several times, have always been pleased with the food and the service They sometimes have live music, not sure if that has changed slightly or not. A while back I was in on a Saturday evening and there was duo with a keyboard and they sang some lounge type songs that were cheesy in a very good way. On my most recent visit, they had a baby grand piano in the bar area...very classy, nice touch. The food and service were both good. The deck makes for great dining when the weather is nice. Skip Maggiano's or other chains and come here!

Sangiovese fits in with the
Sangiovese fits in with the several upscale restaurants in the area. It was surprising to find such a place there. This was our second visit, and were not aware that there was additional seating in the "L" shaped rear. The selection was great and varied; both the menue items and the specials were excellently prepared and served. Walleye with crab topping was especially good.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Awesome spot to eat!
I absolutely loved this restaurant. We were celebrating my boyfriends birthday and they made it special for us. The food was outstanding and the service was great as well. I would recommend the five cheese ravioli (it was a special). I would go back for sure!
