Brian was our waiter once again & as always did a great job. We were comped a half dozen oysters. I gotta say these were some of the best oysters we have ever had. Everything ws cooked to perfection & served promptly. We shall return.

Great service, house wines good and were half off so even better, excellent apps (we got scallops and calamari), mixed reviews of entrees. I had the carbonara, the sauce was not creamy, seemed thin/watery and it was brown. Not what my expected carbonara sauce would be. It tasted okay, but wasn’t creamy and had little flavor. The linguini was cooked perfectly with nice bite. The chicken was prepared blackened and brown sugar (optional). I knew I may not like it but wanted to give a try, I would probably not order it with brown sugar in future and didn’t realize there would be an up charge for that.

Another person in our group ordered a medium filet and it came out well done. They offered to remake it. 2 others ordered salmon and one of them bit into a bone, hard to always avoid bones in fish but not usual with salmon.

Waitress was very friendly but would have appreciated heads up that brown sugar and blackening spice would be a 2 dollar up charge.

Personally I had a really nice dinner and we ate on a Monday night, a night when many places in food world tend to sway in consistency. Would go back again if I was in the area.

Our group of 8 adults and 3 kids had a wonderful dinner celebrating a birthday. The food was spectacular and the service was even better. We were not made to feel like kids were a problem. In fact the table next to us kept playing with the kids! It could not have been better

Everything about this place is amazing, service, food, atmosphere. It was one of the best meals I have ever had and by far the best ever in Indianapolis. If you looking for authentic family Italian look no further. Can’t wait to go back when the patio is open.

Great place! THE BEST ALFREDO SAUCE and I lived in Europe for over 10 years and spent plenty of time in Italy. Just a great staff, everyone works together, smiles all around and it shows in how they treat you and the food the have. It is really an absolutely great place!

Hands down the best Italian restaurant in Indy! I've been going to Iozzo's for many years. Celebrated my Father-In-Laws' birthday this time! Great food as always! I had my usual Lasagna Bolognese and a house salad with Iozzo's homemade blue cheese dressing! Everyone's meal was fabulous!
I must say it's the first time I didn't order the ZoZo Shrimp appetizer! It really is a must if you've never had it!
The Tiramisu desert was served in a tulip shaped champagne glass and loved by all. I tried the salted brownie with ice cream, chocolate caramel sauce and whipped cream for the first time and it was to die for!
Our Waiter Anthony was awesome and really took care of us! Thanks Anthony you made our evening exceptional! We'll be back soon!

Food was pretty good, but unfortunately the service was subpar. Our waiter forgot the drinks of the table next to us, threw the bartender under the bus and seemed to generally be struggling despite only a moderate crowd this evening. We would definitely give them another try as the food was good, and they were very good about working with my wife’s nut allergy.

Celebrating our daughter’s 21st birthday. All of our kids joined us. The food at Iozzo’s is the real deal. Six different and six favorites! Love the ambience as it reminds us of our favorite family Restaraunt’s in Italy. Monday night...packed house!

My wife and I went to Iozzo's last Friday and had outstanding meals. We especially liked the seasonal menu in addition to the regular menu. The Parmesan Encrusted Grouper over Penne was superb and plentiful at a great price. Iozzo's is likely the best value of all downtown premium restaurants. Keep up the great work, team!

This one of our favorite Italian restaurants in town and this night it was as good as ever. We love the shrimp appetizer and my wife also had Italian Wedding soup and loves it. She had lobster ravioli and really likes it but said for some people it might be a bit rich. I tried something different which was Pork Ragu and really enjoyed it. Great place for a good Italian dinner in a historic building.
