We dined on a Tuesday night, so it wasn't super bustle-y, but there were still quite a few tables dining around us. The first thing we noticed was the fresh, hand-made pasta greeting you at the front door ( a great sign) and the warm, rustic, yet modern decor. The hostess so graciously dealt with our change in table size and request to sit at a table not assigned to us. We are in the restaurant industry, so we know how frustrating these requests can get, especially since we noticed a few tables after us ask the same thing. We landed in a booth, parallel to a wonderfully clean open kitchen. My guest, being a chef was super excited to watch a little action. The server, Ivy, was very accommodating with our meal and went above and beyond to help us with the celebration we were visiting for. I even got a special 'mock-tail' to keep the surprise on track. Props to the barkeep as well for the help. The menu has something for everyone, very well curated and prices are surprisingly moderate. We began with the stunning cheeseboard with towers of fried dough above an artful selection of cheeses matched wonderfully with fruit preserves. This is a must get. The meatballs were just the right size, tender, and flavorful. I cannot pass up fresh pasta, so I ordered their namesake dish.. the papardelle(?) convivio... I forget the first word, but not the taste. Pasta- cooked perfectly, sauce-just enough...honestly I would have been thrilled with the dish even without the tender chicken that came with it. Everyone else at the table was thrilled with their choices, portions were perfect. We also ordered pizza to go for the folks who couldn't make the drive... Don't tell them, but they aren't charging enough! They were some of the best pizza's I had in Indiana, and I didn't even get to taste them until the next day. Take it from me, save room for the tiramisu! Some of the best I've had! More

Long time Carmel residents and our first visit. A friend recommended it and she was right! The owner/chef met us at the door and seated us at a comfortable table. Our waitress took her time explaining the menu and wine list. She answered all of our questions and make helpful recommendations. The food was fresh and similar to the dishes we enjoyed in Rome last year. The wine was excellent but the deserts were superb! The owner has a gelato shop in Carmel and we enjoyed a pistachio that was smooth and creamy. Definitely will return and we are telling our family and business partners to try it. More

The bar was very crowded when we arrived at 7:00 but we were able to obtain beverages easily. We were celebrating a birthday with a table of 6. Our server Debbie greeted us promptly. Debbie was warm and engaging with a great sense of humor that added to the enjoyment of a celebration dinner. The food was good. I had the walleye dinner which seemed slightly small on portion size, but it was good. My husband and I have eaten here many times. It is a great place to go before a Palladium event! More
