This was our second dining experience at this restaurant and it continues to be a new found favorite when visiting Indy. A friend referred us. The food is plentiful as well as delicious and the service outstanding. The restaurant itself is what I call quaint. Highly recommend and make sure you make a reservation.

Iozzo's sent out an e-mail offering some Lenten non-meat dishes, which we really appreciated as many restaurants don't seem to acknowledge the Lenten traditions, so we made a visit last Friday. The seasonal feature Salmon Florentine was exquisite and was a tough choice having also the Red Snapper to choose from. A re-visit is in store soon. The service was outstanding, as usual. We have eaten there often and it's always a five-star experience. Nice job, folks!

Recently discovered Iozzo's and it is now my favorite place to dine! The service is top notch and the food is always fresh and perfectly prepared. I highly recommend the Halibut (baked in parchment) -- amazing! Falls apart flaky and not overly seasoned or covered in sauce like some restaurants do. Solid wine selection here, as well as full bar for mixed drinks or beer. There's a bit of a noise level but it's cozy and still easy to converse. Plenty of parking on street sides and adjacent lot.

They are pretty good about taking reservations (I mainly book on their website), but wish they would be more accommodating for small reservations in the bar area. However, I do understand this is a small venue so maybe hard to do at some times.

Love Iozzo's - never had a problem till this visit. Server was definitely having a bad night. Got 2/4 orders wrong. Waited extra long time for food - server said it was because kitchen "ruined" the filet, so he had it redone. Disappointed when he told us to save room for dessert because it was on him, only to find that just 2 of the 4 desserts were comped. I'll definitely be back because I'm sure it is a one time thing, and I love their food!

Martini was suboptimal. Two small olives and not cold served in a punch bowl glass. Really, for $13.00? Lobster Ravioli was of marginal taste and presentation, yet one of the most expensive entrees. Restaurant needs upgrading, old and tired looking. Service was fair, not great.

Came for lunch with work colleagues to celebrate a birthday. First time for all. We were very impressed with the food and ambiance. Noise level low so we could talk. Service was very good but for lunch a little slow as it was 2 hours but in fairness we did get appetizers and desert. No complaints on the food for sure! Price very good too.

Our book club often meets at Iozzo's for dinner. This February we found a warm and cozy environment where we could discuss our book and warm ourselves on a cold winter night. The Martini's were half priced, my salmon piccata was perfectly cooked. One ordered the meatballs in the martini glass and really enjoyed it. One ordered the Iozzo spaghetti, her favorite. A cozy restaurant where friends can enjoy visiting and eating great Italian food. Highly recommend this restaurant.
