Iaria's Italian Restaurant
This place is by far my favorite in Indy for Italian food. We were there at 730 on a Friday night and it was hopping. But regardless of how full the place was, and it was packed, every table full, the staff was awesome and friendly. I had a great meal, starting off with a drink, cheesy garlic bread, salad, spaghetti and cheesecake for dessert.
I highly recommend this place, but if you're going in the evening, Reservations are a MUST.
Best in Indy
Excellent Italian Restruant, the red sauce is fantastic!
WONDERFUL!!!! The food and service is amazing.
Iaria’s is that neighborhood Italian restaurant that everybody loves, and has a nice family atmosphere. Great spaghetti and reasonably priced.
We have been visiting for many years and the food is always delicious. The atmosphere is warming and friendly.
Great Italian food and excellent, affordable prices. Our server may have been new, he was a bit slow in bringing out bread and appetizers and seemed to forget our order as well as the table behind us. Overall though this is an excellent restaurant.
Always love to go here with friends!
My drogato sauce was so salty I couldn’t eat it, which was uncharacteristic of the food quality. Usually it is spot on.
We also had to wait 20 min for a table which we had a eeservation for. Ordinarily it wouldn’t have been a big deal and we would have had a drink at the bar, but we had a two year old in our party, and it would have made things easier if we could have been seated right away.
Food was awesome. Service was a little bit pushy as in they were hurrying you up.
Our 32nd year anniversary was celebrated at Iaria’s. This was our first visit and we were most impressed. The cuisine was remarkable and the service was friendly and attentive. We will certainly return.
Always a favorite for the whole family! Kids arrived in from Montana, and this is where we went!
Food was very excellent along with the service and atmosphere. They were extremely busy and our waitress was very attentive and provided excellent service
Best Italian food in Indianapolis
Been going here since Nick and Kathleen took over. One of the top 5 restaurants in America.
Our food was not hot when we received it, it was warm at best. Service was excellent. And the food did not have a lot of flavor that you would expect from Italian food. Not much garlic, or Italian seasoning..
Casual atmosphere but cold. We complained about the cold temp inside and as we were leaving realized they had just turned on the furnace. I would not make the 60+ mile drive again but if I am in the neighborhood and wanted Italian i would go back and try it again. 100 years in business they can be off their game once in a while.
Great lunch of chicken parm sandwiches with my son. We sat in the bar area and it was a little louder than I’d prefer, but the food is worth the noise!
We always have a great time there. The service and food never seems to disappoint us.
Great food and service!
Great service, great food, great atmosphere! Our servers were very attentive and the environment is unique and fun. Definitely recommend!
I probably cannot complete this very well. We had a delicious dinner and enjoyed dining with our friends. The only thing that was a little bother some was we were close to the door and it was very cold each time it was opened.
Everything else was great!!
nice and simple italian restaurant, the food is good and the prices too.
service was attentive and fast,
presentation of the food is simple, with basic flavors, nothing unexpected.
Overall it was ok. I had heard a lot of great things and just didn’t have that experience. The food was bland and not what I expected.
Always top quality authentic Italian food.
Food was good as usual. Best meatballs ever.
Great Italian Food as Always...love the bar and the cheese garlic bread
Sandy is wonderful. Always greets us like the friends we are
This was a great experience and very good food. Our waitress (Wood High School grad) made terrific recommendations. Thank you!
Eating at Iaria's before the tree lighting is our new family tradition. We receive fantastic service and the meal is always delicious.
Always love the food, and it's really a great restaurant. Have had the same waiter a handful of times that has a problem of ignoring small tables in favor of large ones. Waited 20 minutes for a beer, couldn't even make eye contact with him to see when it was coming. Every other server is great, but it's the last time I'll sit in his section.
Very busy weekend evening, every table was packed full. Definitely make a reservation for this one - its popular!
Food was well prepared and an excellent value. Service was stellar.
We had four in our party. The restaurant was quite loud. The spaghetti and meatballs was the best tasting meal. The seafood pasta was not as good as at other Italian restaurants. The service was great.
Took out of town customers, who wanted Italian. Iarias was perfect, old Italian atmosphere. Food & service were great. Going back soon with my wife
This was a birthday dinner for my Hubs. They very attentive and kind waiter brought him a dish of spumone on the house for his bday. Great food, great vibe and great location with free parking!
Very friendly staff and outstanding food. Relaxed atmosphere, including a party of about 15 celebrating a birthday. I definitely plan to return, and I would recommend Iaria's to others, especially for authentic Italian cuisine.
A group of girlfriends and I got together for dinner at Iaria's. The food was delicious. The server was friendly and helpful. This is a casual restaurant - not fancy. We like to come here a few times a year for the delicious food. This time we had eggplant parmesan, lasagna, Margarita pizza, and spaghetti and meat balls.
Food is excellent!!! I'm from Chicago and their pizza is as good as ours! We were lead into this restaurant from the great smells outside a few months ago and planned our girls weekend in Indy based on going to this restaurant again. We will definitely be back
Dinner out with friends
The wife & I had a tremendous meal. We did have to send a couple of items back as they were over cooked but the replacement dishes were excellent! The waitress was outstanding, service was excellent & we will return! The only issue was that it was very loud in the bar on Saturday night.
It’s an awesome Italian restaurant. Joe was amazing. Try the French dressing with blue cheese dressing for your salad.
Everything we ate was spot on delicious
