I had brought a friend who had never been. Her comment was, "you don't even know that you've been eating bad Italian until you have good Italian. This is great!"

Exceptional service. Great food and ambience. Our waiter had an exceptional knowledge of the menu and is one of the only times I've actually received helpful tips on how to best enjoy my food. The food was the best Italian food I've ever had!

My girlfriend and I only just discovered Iozzo’s about 3 months ago but ever since we have dined there for my birthday, her birthday & another casual occasion. This has become one of my favorite go to spots to eat in Indy.

Service was impeccable. The toasted raviolis, fantastic. While I wasn’t the biggest fan of the veggie cannelloni, which was no fault of the restaurant, everything else and the rest of my family’s meals were wonderful. If we’re ever back in Indy, we’ll be stopping by again.

Our waiter was wonderful, attentive, and very knowledgeable about all the food and drinks. He did a great job recommending food selections. The short rib pasta and gnocchi were amazing. Don’t skip the donut dessert. Amazing!

Everything was excellent. They were out of spumoni ice cream, which was a little disappointing, but the rest of the visit was stellar.

We had a fabulous experience at Iozzos for our anniversary We sat in the garden, which is the place to be while the weather is still nice. Our server Kathleen was excellent and gave suggestions that were right on the money. We had the fetticcine alfredo and chicken parmesan, which were both excellent. The drinks are top notch as well, enjoyed the manhattan, old fashion, wine with dinner, the chocolate martini and irish coffee. Desserts rocked as well. Great special occasion restaurant.

The service and food were both excellent. We ate in the outdoor patio which is delightful. It is a cozy set up with propane heaters, so quite comfortable in the early evening on a cool October day. The restaurant was very busy, but the service was outstanding. All of the food was terrific.

Best Italian meal I've ever had. We came on a Saturday night, so the wait staff was busy. Be prepared to relax and enjoy the romantic atmosphere. The staff was friendly and helpful. Lasagna and chicken masala were amazing! (Not sure you can beat homemade pasta.) Looking forward to our next visit.

Such a great experience. Alan Sternberg’s food is incredible. We had a great server too. It seemed like everyone was happy. There were difficult guests behind us, complaining about everything and I was so embarrassed for them. How do you come to a place rated top 20 in greater Indianapolis and act like the food isn’t good? So that was stupid but it was really great. The tiramisu cheesecake was prolly the best dessert I’ve ever had. I wanna make one but I know I couldn’t come close! The value was good too- we spent under $100 for 2 and we ate every course!!! So that was cool too. Hopefully I get to go back.

I really wanted to like it. But alas, it was just ok. The baked cannelloni was jus ok. The carbonara was slightly better and there was a short rib pasta that was probably the best. Tiramisu cheesecake was pretty bland and the pasticcera was only slightly better. Bottles of wine are on sale on Tuesdays, the day we went.

Our favorite place to celebrate special occasions. The service is always spectacular, the food is exceptional, the overall feel of the restaurant is perfection. Every bite is bursting with delicious flavor (omg, like how do you make a simple salad taste that amazing?)! We are never disappointed and are always excited to go back.

Meal started off great! The waiter was very friendly and helpful. Appetizers (fried ravioli and seafood special) were excellent. Wonderful dipping sauce to accompany the bread, although the bread itself was just average. Main course (pasta with truffles) was a bit disappointing, because the delicate flavor of the truffles was overwhelmed by too much salt. The biggest disappointment was the cannoli. Neither the filling nor the shell was especially good.
