We were visiting for a game and delighted to celebrate my husbands birthday here. It was a delicious meal and they accommodated our request to sit outside despite it being 45 degrees. They put a heater next to our table so with our coats on, we were comfortable. Not to mentioned I felt so much more comfortable knowing we were outside. There were tables inside spaced apart inside but still too full for my opinions. We're from Chicago and our COVID restrictions are much tighter. I think Indiana has 50% capacity whereas Chicago is the lesser of 25 people or 25%. Anyways our server was great and his recommendation made me change my order. I got the sausage and peppers which the fresh house made pasta (I'm always a snob for fresh pasta) and it was absolutely delicious. Perfectly al dente pasta with just enough spice from the sausage with a well balanced sauce. My husband absolutely loved the chicken diavolo which says "very spicy" but it was in our opinion, just the right amount of the spice. My husband also loved the cozy sweater drink and the house Italian blend red wine was great. Highly recommend you try this place!

Italian Restaurant is the best in Indy with their anthemic cuisine and superb hospitality.
They make you feel like one of their family.

Amazing Italian dinner in Indy! I went with my boyfriend for his birthday celebration and we were thrilled with all of it! Great service, great food, amazing quality and we were really attended to. There was never a moment where we weren't having a great time. Also, amazing history behind the place so I would reccomend asking! Delicious food, would definitely get the calamari again! Can't wait to go back!

Everything at Iozzo's is always perfect! The food is excellent! The family sauce is the best sauce I have ever had. We sat outside and you feel like you are in Italy with the outdoor lights and atmosphere! When we walk in it is such a good feeling because the owner, Katie and the servers always remember us. It is absolutely our favorite place to go for dinner with friends or on our date night.

It was a treat to dine in a local Independent restaurant. Food and service was lovely and the dining out experience was refreshing. I hope the capacity limits are lifted soon so all small business can survive in an entrepreneurial rich environment like Downtown Indianapolis. I can't wait for my next visit.

Totally lives up to it's reputation as the best Italian restaurant in Indy!!! I've been hearing about it for many years from a dear friend and now that I've had the opportunity to visit from NJ, the state "drowning in marinera sauce", I have to say the food it just a good as he said. Loved the black and blue gnocchi and the pine nut pesto fettuccini most of all. Great wine, great atmosphere, GREAT experience!!

We celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary at Iozzo’s because that is one of my Wife’s favorite restaurants in the downtown area. She loves the Chicken Marsala and says it’s hands down the best she has ever had. I enjoyed a thick cut pork chop with mashed potatoes and asparagus which I enjoyed very much. Our sever was very attentive and even brought us a complimentary glass of champagne 🥂 We had the Crem Brûlée cheesecake and Spumoni ice cream for desert accompanied by a nice hot glass of Baileys and cream. Everything was wonderful that is why we always go back the food atmosphere and service are consistently top notch.
