Iozzo's Garden of Italy Ratings and Reviews
The atmosphere was energetic and vibrant. Our server was great, very cordial, detailed and unobtrusive. The food : Very good, but not the best I've ever had. I would say a tad overpriced for what we got. Portions were big, plenty of food, but depth of flavor was a little lacking. Kind of ordinary. Certainly nothing bad or wrong, just a bit unimpressive, but filling. Still, an overall good experience.
Wonderful experience. The restaurant is beautiful and service wonderful. Quaint and intimate dining area made for an even more enjoyable experience. Thank you to the wonderful team! Amazing authentic Italian cuisine. And the blackberrycello was outstanding!
Our appetizers were fried mozzarella and crab cakes. The fried mozz tasted like my store bought frozen sticks, not fresh at all. Crab cakes were a lot of breading, but better that the mozz. The salads that came w/our dinners were oddly the best part of our meal. I had shrimp Diavalo(?) the shrimp was good, but the pasta and sauce were not my fav. My husband had an unmemorable dish. Lemon drop martini was great! We had a great waitress though! Would not recommend this "Italian"
The food was out of this world. We had a party of 6 adults and everyone got something different and all loved their meals. Wine pricing was reasonable as was or dinner. Staff was friendly and server was knowledgeable on all dinner entrees and wine selections. Will be going bake.
Our server, Kendra (?) was excellent. The recommendations for our appetizer were perfect, our drinks (Italian Margaritas) were delicious and the pacing of when our appetizer (prosciutto wrapped shrimp), salads (wedge & Cesar) , entrees (Chicken Penne & Portabella Orzo) and dessert (Italian coffee-sooo good!) arrived was excellent. We had plenty of time to enjoy our meal and conversation without ever wondering when our next item would arrive or feeling rushed. The atmosphere was festive but our table felt private and we thoroughly enjoyed our entire dining experience. It was exactly what he hoped it would be for our night out. They were especially accommodating when we called and needed to push our reservation back a bit as well. Highly recommended!!
Dinner was FANTASTIC! I cannot recall having a better meal anywhere.
The cocktails were terrific, the lobster meatball appetizer was recommended by the host and it did not disappoint.
The three main courses in our group could not have been better & the dessert was on par with the rest of the experience.
It is easily our new favorite spot in Indy... can’t wait to return.
Went to Iozzo’s for a quiet anniversary dinner. They were very accommodating and seated us at a secluded table. Service by Anthony was excellent—just attentive enough. Food and cocktails were also excellent. Been there several times and never disappointed. Look forward to our next visit. Thank you!
I love the character of this restaurant inside and I especially love the patio, where I just discovered that on Wednesday evenings they have live music. The food is good and the staff is very friendly, although each time I've been there the actual service is a bit sketchy. The servers are wonderful, the service is sketchy. Maybe it's a training issue, maybe it's a kitchen issue, or maybe it's both, but each time I've been there it takes forever from the time you order until the food comes out. And this time the server brought out our salads first and THEN brought out the appetizers, then while we were still working on our appetizers she brought out our pizza.. So first we waited forever to get our food and then they piled it all on the table at once. Oh well, we had a great time, the ambiance on the patio is always great and the live music was a nice surprise. I still recommend the place and will still go frequently.
We had a great dinner at Iozzo's. Our waiter Brian had the table pre set & ready for our anniversary. Complimentary champagne for us both, which was really tasty. We typically don't like champagne. All our appetizers we off the charts, good soup & salads were perfect, as was our entrée.
My boyfriend and I love Iozzo’s, it’s our special date night spot. The service is always great here and the food is delicious. In all the times we’ve been here, it’s never been a disappointment. This is the perfect cozy spot to enjoy a meal. I 100% recommend it.
This is one of our favorite Italian restaurants but this was not one of our best experiences here. The service initially was slow (which to be fair is unusual here). Maybe the server was overloaded but there were long gaps between her appearances. We love the spicy shrimp appetizer and it did not disappoint this night. For an entree we split the platter for two. We liked everything on it and the portions were fair but we both agreed we would order our own entree next time. The Fettuccine Alfredo was a bit rich for my tastes but the veal more than offset it in my opinion.
We will definitely return but the service took some of the shine off of the evening.
