    Once you walk in.. it is such a neat and comfortable environment. Very clean and everyone was so nice. Our server Dale was absolutely amazing. So informative and attentive. Will definitely be back! They do live music on Wednesday’s on the back patio.. I am sure that would be a wonderful time. So happy we found this place!!❤️

    Food was just not good. Burrata way too salty, scallops not fresh, wrong pasta for both cacio e Pepe and carbonara (not sure an egg was ever used). Wine list not updated and 2 different versions used so made things confusing. I wouldn’t waste your time or money here. Arby’s is close by.

    A gem! We had one night in Indy and did a careful research before we booked a table at Iozzo's. The service and food were outstanding. Great wine list by the bottle. The Brunello of 2015 we ordered was promptly decanted (a rare thing this days, isn't it?). Of the food we ordered, the cacio e pepe, the hanger stake, and the cannoli were quite memorable. And the aged negroni! Our waiter, Wayne, was very professional, friendly, and accommodating.

    I have been here multiple times, always great, but in my opinion the old menu was better. The qualities are smaller than they were in previous years but the price has went up. Food always tastes great though

    Our waitress was amazing, she was very knowledgeable about the menu and very nice. The hostesses were also very nice. The restaurant was beautifully decorated and had a nice vibe. The pasta carbonara was very runny and had a very strong black pepper taste, it wasn’t creamy or anything so I sent it back and got a different dish. The waitress was very nice about this and I got the new dish in a very timely manner so I was still able to eat with my family. I would come there again and order the gnocchi again, that was a 5/5. Overall, our party enjoyed everything.

    My boyfriend and I went for our anniversary because we saw all the great reviews and pictures of good looking food. We ordered the cheese bread as our appetizer and it was pretty good. They serve complimentary bread and oil but it wasn’t that good. I ordered the ricotta gnocchi and I had high expectations for it because the photos online looked very good. The photos online showed a pretty big portioned pasta dish with lots of cheese sauce and juicy steak on top. What I received was a small bowl of pasta with barely any sauce on it, a bunch of sage, and burnt steak. It did not taste good at all! My boyfriend will eat anything and he didn’t even like it. It was so bad that I couldn’t finish it. I had to drink a lot of water to get it down. My boyfriend got the salmon and he said it was good but not the best he’s ever had. I had high expectations for this restaurant but my meal was definitely not worth $32. You would have better luck finding good tasting food at Olive Garden for half the price.

    We've sort of made it a tradition to come here for celebrations. Cute place, great service, and AMAZING food if you love authentic Italian cuisine. If weather permits, try sitting in the outside patio, very cozy.

    The food, as always was very good. We had to take a later reservation, 8:30, assuming because of limited wait or kitchen staff as there were several open tables when we arrived. Our server was fair and all over the place. Maybe he was just rushed and trying to cover too many tables. The saving grace and what keeps bringing us back is the food. All 4 entrees we had were excellent.

    We found Iozzo's when we were in Indy in April (we're not at all local) and it impressed us so much we wanted to come back. We had a late lunch, food was excellent, waitress was so, so good. My daughter is working her way through the menu but I'm stuck on the lasagna. We're already looking forward to eating there again the next time we're in Indy.

    We love this place. Mostly for the food, but also for the family-owned, neighborhood-hangout, ambience. Had the Cheese Ravioli and Rigatoni Vodka (I think that was the name), and oh my gosh, both were so good. Complex-flavors, comfort food? Is that a thing?

    We love it there usually, but the fruit flies were terrible. I had to have killed at least 20 of them, flying into my wine and all over everything. I am in the business and I know this problem is hard to control, but it CAN be controlled.
