Diner Reviews
  • "Have dined here several time before. Always great food, service and atmosphere. The outdoor dining is open and it is wonderful for summer."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Me and my boyfriend went there before prom and it was excellent :) it wasn't too crowded, the lighting was romantic, and there was lovely piano playing. Our waiter was fantastic, very personable and on top of things. I don't think my glass ever got half full before another fresh one replaced it. The food was also amazing. The house bread was perfect, and our bruschetta and pastas were also delicious. Totally worth the price. Service was also quick and friendly. It's a little on the costly side, but coupons made it more affordable. You definitely get your money's worth. I recommend this as a great date night kind of place, but can also be appropriate for business meetings and gatherings for special occasions."

  • "Small, quiet, romantic, super food, great service, full bar, live entertainment. When we want to celebrate something special we always choose Sangiovese Ristorante. The food is outstanding. The service is very attentive. You can have a quiet conversation and enjoy great food and wine. It can't be beat!"

  • "Sangiovese had an excellent menu well prepared. I had linguine with shellfish fra diavolo. We'll done without an excessive amount of pasta. I would have given it 5stars, but the wine list was limited. Service was terrific and the place has a nice ambience. Would definitely recommend."

  • "We had never dined at Sangiovese Ristorante before, but had purchased a coupon book from a neighborhood child that contained a coupon. After eating there, I can't believe we hadn't tried it before! The food was unbelievable, the service was excellent and our entire experience was great! We will be dining there again very soon! (My husband said the lasagna was the best he'd ever had, and he is very particular about his lasagna!)"

    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Excellent service from the hostess who apologized that our table was not ready to the wait staff who were professional and friendly. My glass was never empty. The only negative thing was the lighting. It was very dark and having poor eyesight it was a little difficult to read the menu. I would suggest adding a bigger candle to the tables for more concentrated lighting:)"

  • "We were warmly greeted by the hostess who remembered my parents from a previous dinner there. Same with our waiter. Food was plentiful and nicely presented. Very good service and enjoyed the piano player."

  • "We attrended this reataurant during "Northside Nights". I usually skip Italian on these occasions, but WOW!. I experienced great flavor and fantastic service!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "This was my first time here. I had heard good things and wanted to try it for myself. We decided to go for my husbands birthday and found it absolutely wonderful. It was a little busy and loud when we first arrived but once the crowd started to leave I found it to be very romatic and intimate especially with the piano music. We will be returning the food is all my husband has talked about for days!"

  • "We met friends for dinner. The service was great. The food was very good. We all had something different and all were happy with our food."

  • "We went for Northside Night dining. As always, the food was excellent and so was the service. This is a great choice for Italian food."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "We were interested in the Northside Nights pre fix menu. The selection was great and included a variety from the general menu. A glass of wine included in the set price was an added bonus. We were seated promptly and our server was attentive but not hovering. We enjoyed leisure conversation. It was a pleasant experience and will return when the outdoor dining is available."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "For our money, one of the most consistent and delicious restaurants in town. Sangiovese never disappoints in food or service. Truly a local gem."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Out of 3 diners, only 1 was pleased with the quality of the food. The wait staff kept asking if they could take away the dishes before we were finished. It's nice to have an attentive staff but we felt a bit rushed. It was a busy Saturday night and the restaurant was full."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "My husband & I met another couple we hadn't seen in awhile & had a very enjoyable evening & dinner. It was Northside Nights & while we didn't come for that reason we all ordered from the preset menu. $30 each included salad or soup, entree, dessert & 1 glass of wine. All enjoyed & everything was great including the Josh Cellars wine. Here is what all ordered, Josh Cellar Cabarnet, Goat Cheese Appetizer, Wedge Salad, Tonato Bisque, Salmon, Striped Bass, Chicken Marsala, Tiramisu, Canoli. All was enjoyable Striped Bass seafood special with crab on top hands down was the best!!! Yum!!! Chicken Marsala had great sauce topping but chicken was so-so & kind of dry. Tiramisu definitely better than cannoli. Had a great dinner with great couple."

  • "Normally when they have a fish dish as their feature it is outstanding. Not this time. It was edible but a long way from memorable. Had to use a knife..."

  • "Went there Sunday evening for a belated Valentine's dinner and had a marvelous time. The hostess was charming and our waitperson, Drew, remembered us from a prior visit. As always, food and wine were outstanding, and Drew was an excellent server, couldn't ask for better!"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "I visited Sangiovese for the first time this past weekend. It was a great experience overall. The service was by far the best part of the evening - from entering to leaving - all around great people. The food was also excellent and had great flavor. There have been previous reviews in various outlets about a high salt concentration in the food. I would concur, but it wasn't overwhelming. If you are looking for truly authentic Italian (although there is great debate on that point), Sangiovese comes close, but not all the way. Closer on certain regions than others. The wine list is pretty decent. The bar area is great!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "My girlfriend and I really enjoy this place. Very romantic atmosphere with dark lighting and light piano accompaniment. What you would expect of a classy Italian restaurant. She had a delicious red snapper and I had the risotto with beef medallions, both were delicious, but the real treat was the antipasto before the meal. Decent wine list and very helpful, knowledgeable waiter."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Took my fiance here for Valentine's Day, and they were great. The waitstaff was very helpful and knowledgable about the menu- even with a special valentine's day menu. I ordered the Risotto off of the special menu and it was very good. My fiance ordered the fettucine bolegnese from the regular menu and it was excellent- A dish I would order if we dined here again, which I am sure we will do at some point."

  • "This is a hidden gem even though it has been there for many years. This restaurant is individually owned, the food is impeccable and the service as well!"

  • "Went for the veal but was enticed by the specials. Had a risotto with blackened beef cubes, artichokes, and gorgonzola which was fabulous. The red snapper special was equally outstanding. It was my birthday so they brought me a piece of their tiramisu which is probably the best in the area. The service was impeccable as expected. One of my favorite restaurants in Indy. Rarely a mediocre experience."
