We love this restaurant and frequently visit. Unfortunately our last experience we had a very rude waitress, in the past our service has always been fantastic.

Wonderful establishment with a very interesting history. Ask your server about the owner’s great grandfather if you ever dine at Iozzo’s.

So delicious on Thursday, we are returning on Sunday!!! Delicious pizza, chicken parmigiana and the Italian cream cake is unbelievably wonderful! (And I don’t usually like coconut or pecans). Visit soon, you won’t regret it!

We had a reservation for 8:15 on a Friday evening and were seated immediately upon arrival. There was plenty of free on street parking available. Gregory, our server was very knowledgeable and professional. Dinner was excellent and timely. The after dinner Baileys & Coffee was awesome and worth every penny. Overall it was a great dining experience and we would definitely recommend to everyone.

All the food was disappointing. Very under seasoned. Over priced. Chicken was dry.
Pizza was tasteless. I’m sorry to report this, but it is how all 4 of us felt.

Best Italian restaurant in Indy. Food is very good & reasonably priced. Service was “uneven” but didn’t detract from overall great experience.

Not many Italian restaurants in Indianapolis mostly all chains and corporate places we found this place from going onto open table and it only had a few spots left for reservations. We stole the 5pm reservation. Living in Philadelphia we prefer the mom and pop places and this place was just that. The restaurant had a great family feel. Our server was the brother of the owner he was very knowledgeable with menu items. I ordered the fried gnocchi with spinach, squash and goat cheese. Was amazing! Followed up with cappuccino and chocolate chip cherry gelato. Everything was great I highly recommend.

The food was absolutely delicious and high-quality! The atmosphere was just what we wanted. It was a quaint small restaurant that met all of our needs. We were from out of town and absolutely loved it. The waiter Mr. Cummings was also amazing. We also tremendously enjoyed the delicious desserts. My husband loved the homemade pasta sauce and my salmon was out of this world. We will Definitely return to eat there again!

Our server Phil was wonderful. He provided suggestions based on our tastes and had so much information to share about both the food and the restaurant. The ambiance was perfect for a quiet dinner and the food was amazing. Phil even provided flawless instructions on how to best reheat my pasta leftovers. We will be back to Iozzo’s!

My boyfriend and I love trying different restaurants around Indianapolis, especially Italian restaurants. I wanted to surprise him with this one, and after careful consideration and reading of many reviews, I settled on Iozzo’s. I was drawn in by their history, the aesthetics of the restaurant, and the fact that it was quite hard to come across a negative review. Safe to say, we’re glad we chose Iozzo’s. They were very hospitable, the restaurant had a lovely ambience, and the food was wonderful (we ordered Linguine in White Clam Sauce and Shrimp Florentine—both very delicious). For dessert, we shared the Chocolate Pavlova, a dessert made with baked chocolate merengue, and topped with whipped cream and berries. The only thing we didn’t like was the Italian Wedding Soup. Definitely a 9/10.

Great place with great food. Well decorated, fresh bread. Had the alfredo with blackened chicken. If I could order pounds of that chicken, I absolutely would. It was as tender as can be and spicy enough to be amazing but not overpowering.

We has talked about going to Iozzo's for years, so I thought my wife's birthday would be a perfect tie to make our first visit. We chose the combination platter to share and it was wonderful. There was plenty for use to enjoy, and the service was as wonderful as the food. We've already chosen entrees off the menu for future visits, and are planning to come next time with friends.
