Iozzo's Garden of Italy
Great food and great service.
I am a regular.. usually love the place. Tonight was great until the end of our dinner and the bill was paid. Waiter was rude. Asked us to leave so so a couple waiting could be seated. We hadn't even been there 2hrs for time spent.. regardless not appropriate.
Great atmosphere and service. Lobster ravioli just ok. Could not taste the lobster and shrimp did not have much flavor. House salad also just ok. Very good stuffed mushrooms and Italian Cream Cake.
Authentic Italian food apparently doesn't have very many pork-less or beef-less dishes LOL. My date and I do not eat either so our experience was limited. What we had was yummy, but those meatballs and house sauce (both made with beef&pork) were crying out to us from across the room! It would be awesome if the chefs adopted a turkey meatball and sauce alternative. Our server was fantastic and very accommodating to our needs and gave us great recommendations so we could still enjoy our evening.
Dana did a great job taking care of us. Everything was very fresh & tasted fantastic. They even brought in the type of fish I requested & chef Leroy prepared it perfectly. We love Iozzo's Garden of Italy!
“The best Italian I have had in the past year ! The staff is very welcoming and friendly and I had a great experience in the restaurant Highly recommended! Our server Dan knew the gentleman who referred Iozzo’s to us.
If you’ve never been it’s a great place to eat and learn about the Italian history!
One of our favorite restaurants! The Smokey Manhattan is amazing!
I love this place. The food is amazing, all of it. Our waitress, Dana, was awesome and her recommendations were perfect. This was my second visit, but I’ll definitely be back for a third :) thank you!
We have been to Iozzo's several times for dinner and drinks. Have always loved the atmosphere and good food selection. I have recommended your restaurant to several friends and family. However, last Friday our waitress was surprisingly rude in rushing us out the door. There were 4 of us for dinner for a 6:00 reservation. We had a drink at the bar and then at our table we ordered appetizers, 2 bottles of Iozzo's wine ($60/ bottle), 4 dinners, and 2 desserts. We were seated at 6:15 and left approx. 2 hours later. The entire evening we were spending money and not just hogging the table. Our waitress told us she had others to seat and we needed to finish up! I have NEVER been to ANY restaurant where we were asked to leave so she could seat another customer. After I complained to her, she said, well, I'll give you another 20 minutes but that's all I can do. I complained to the bar tender as we were leaving. He asked who it was but that was all he said. We dropped about $350 in that 2 hour period. Our friends who dined with us were first time visitors. It may be their last. It may be our last as well. Over the Christmas holiday, my daughter in-law had her employee party at your restaurant (due to my recommendation.) I KNOW they dropped a lot of money! I don't know if this is the shortcoming of our particular waitress or if this is supported by management. I hope it's the former and not the latter. Really put a damper on an otherwise delightful evening.
Celebrating our anniversary
Loved all the pasta!!!
Outstanding service, great fresh pasta, and interesting history!
Great food and service!!
NEw Years Eve
Love everything about this restaurant! Incredible food and staff!
Two of our guests ordered spaghetti with the Iozo's family sauce and did not like the taste of it. One of our guests ordered the veal parmesan and said the veal was not tender. I ordered the Penne with Chicken and received very little chicken, maybe 6-8 small cubes.
New Year’s Eve 2018
We had a very enjoyable dining experience. As always, our food was exceptional.
Paul assisted us with house specials, suggestions and descriptions of items from the menu. His knowledge of the restaurant’s history was a true expression of his devotion. We have been to Iozzo’s several times and always enjoy the ambiance, meals and service. We will continue to dine their often.
The place was PACKED!! Even with that we still received great service from Blake & the rest of the staff. Everyone is very friendly & the food is AWESOME!
My family and I have been many times and have always loved the food and the staff. The food wasn't great this time. The steak was burnt and the pasta was bland and overcooked. The waiting staff couldn't have been better, but the quality of the food wasn't what we hoped for or expected.
My wife,14 year old daughter, and I ate dinner before we attended the Pacers v. Pistons game which was part of Christmas celebration.
Excellent food and in a cozy atmosphere. Not your typical quiet, upscale restaurant. Very comfortable and casual yet professional and classy.
Pre-Colts game brunch... limited brunch menu, but includes a couple breakfast items, sandwiches, and meatball martini, regardless of menu. Joyce provided excellent service
It was a great night. The food and wine were all fantastic. We will definitely be returning
Took some of my fellow employees from Lilly to lunch there today... we are regulars so wanted others experience the food etc. Everyone loved it so hopefully you get some new regulars!!
Colts game! Service was awesome but the food is just delicious. Easy walk to the stadium. Full bar menu. Great occasion place or in the bar area, an everyday place!
I made reservations for a date. My first date after a 10 year relationship. This place came highly recommended from some of my very close, classy friends. The food was amazing, and the hostess kept my glass full. I very much appreciated that. The downfall to this restaurant was the extreme noise level. I couldn’t hold a legible conversation with my date because of the amount of noise through-out the establishment. I will not return again.
Food was just ok. Chicken was tough and appetizer was nothing more than cheese melted on bread, nothing special. Server was not attentive. Disappointed as it was expensive for the quality provided. Not up to pass visits.
Our party of 4 had a 6:45 reservation but our table was not ready for another 20 minutes. I know that happens but maybe the restaurant should have provided a complimentary appetizer or drink. Overall, pretty good food and service. We like to support independent restaurants.
Fantastic meal. Recommendations from my waiter were spot on.
Didn’t find/see dedicated parking.
Amazing food, great staff. We always enjoy eating here
We always enjoy our visits to this truly quaint little place in Indy!
Food was good but served warm, if the food had been hot this would have been 5 stars
Had confirmed reservations for 6:00 for party of 4 - didn't get seated until 6:45 - others came in after us and they were seated. No place to wait. Bar was full. Seemed like where ever we stood we were in the way. When we were seated we were in the aisle way between the bar and the restaurant. Again, in the way - high traffic area. Waitress was good took time to explain menu items. The meal was served with bread and tomato's, wouldn't you think it would be Italian bread - nope - rolls of some kind. I know Grandma ate this every day, but not good. The salads consisted of two types of lettuce, tomato and cucumber - little if any "house" dressing. My wife ordered the Lobster Ravioli (their specialty), I ordered the Linguine and clams. The Lobster ravioli dish ($33.00) consisted of 4 shrimp and ravioli's, and was covered in a thick sauce - it arrived at or table at room temperature. Linguine was alright at best. Not a pleasant experience at all. We could/should have went to Shapiro's just a few doors down and had a much better meal for half the price. I had such high hope for this one. Will not return - sorry.
Absolutely amazing dining experience. Perfect for date night!
Have been here several times and am usually not disappointed. Was excited to see veal Osso Bucco on the menu. However, was not as good as expected, a bit too chewy. Most everything else was ok. Will probably wait a little bit before going back again.
We come every year for the PRI Show. You are the highlight of the week...
My husband usually requests to celebrate his birthday at this restaurant. It has become a tradition. It is authentic, the ambiance is lovely and the service and food is great. Intend to go back.
Excellent service and excellent food! Would definitely recommend!
