Iozzo's Garden of Italy Ratings and Reviews
My wife works Wednesday evening (Valentines Day) so we did a "pre-Valentines" day dinner Tuesday. We got there early for our 7:00 PM reservation and passed on the table available by the door. we headed to the bar where we grabbed a couple of glasses of wine and talked while we waited while snatching glimpses of the Winter Olympics on the TY.
We got to our table and were served by Anthony, who did a really good job for us. My wife ordered the Clams and Linguini and I the Basil Pesto with Pine Nuts on Fettuccini. Both were delicious and my Fettuccini was probably a bit overdone as it tended to clump together - a minor inconvenience as the flavor was wonderful. And the bread?? Delicious! Hard crust and soft chewy inside. Magnifico!
The food was wonderful. The waiter was very pleasant, explained the specials and menu well. He did however forget the wine and had to be reminded. Tables had candles and flowers on them although our flower was almost dead. Ordered the tour for 2 and had enough leftover for next day. It's a small place so larger tables can get a bit noisy if you're looking for a quiet place. Overall excellent food and only minor downfalls. Would return and recommend.
We had a somewhat large group of adults and teenagers on a busy night, but Tony went out of his way to accommodate our extra diners. Our waiter explained the menu and history of the restaurant very well. No one at our table was disappointed because all of our meals were incredible. From the Alfredo and the Bolognese sauces to the Marsala and Diavola, everything was fantastic. Can't wait to dine at Iozzo's again!
Great place for a true Italian meal. Our server gave us the history of the restaurant, the family and the recipes used. It is in a great location, not downtown but close enough. Had reservations (highly recommended) so we were seated right away. Again our server answered all our questions about the menu, went over the daily specials etc. Our meal was paced perfectly so we were not rushed to finish our appetizer for the salads etc. The GM stopped by and gave us some more history of the family, the original restaurant and the current location. It was a fantastic meal with fantastic service with a fantastic staff and a really great location/building! We will be heading back there sooner rather than later!
Iozzo's is a great place to meet friends for a casual lunch. Their menu has a very nice selection of meals and everything we've ever eaten there is good. The waitress we had this week was Linda and she was exceptional. Very attentive and our orders were delivered perfectly!
This was my second visit to Iozzos Garden of italy.
My first trip was a Valentine's dinner last year and it was such a great gem of a place that I had to go back on this visit to Indianapolis.
I find the place has great people,great ambiance and great food.
I completely enjoy when I get to go there and will be back again.
Waited 20 minutes on our table (had s reservation)
I indicated it was a special birthday when I made the reservation but there was no acknowledgment of that and when I mentioned it again, there was no response.
Appetizers were delicious; entrees were good, but not the quality I expected for the setting and the price.
Disappointed in my first visit.
Eating at Iozzo's is one of my favorite restaurant experiences in the past few years! The food was AMAZING, and the service was truly the best we've had in a long time. Everything was perfectly paced, and we never felt rushed for a moment. Can't wait to come back!
We always enjoy IOZZO. The food is authentic, prepared wonderfully, and a treat for the palate. The service is beyond exceptional. Tables are a little crowded in the winter when no outdoor seating is available. Consequently, noise is a little high. The menu is surprisingly varied for a small restaurant, and includes Gluten Free Selections.
