My clam pasta was a bit bland and little amount of clams. My guests thought the gnocchi was tasty. We ordered pizza for appetizer but it came out the same time as our dinner. I'd go back to try other foods and then make a decision later if I'd recommend to others. The ambience is hip and trendy.

Very nice restaurant, but our biggest issues were: Our appetizer was over cooked, so pretty chewy. We had to wait almost an hour to get our food. Once our food arrived, it was good but not something I would rave about. Maybe we just caught them on a bad night.

Tight sitting quarters. Our little table of 2 was about 2 feet away from the next table, which made it quite awkward when the waiter was tending to them, and his rear was practically in our face (not his fault). Noisy, and scurried atmosphere. As for the food, the tomato sauce had a bitter taste, with a strange aftertaste. Perhaps that is authentic Italian, but we did not enjoy it. Good wine, and very good, friendly service. Too bad the food couldn't match the service.

 (New England)·Dined on October 21, 2017

Apparently no quiet tables exist at this modern Italian spot. We wanted a place to gather after a family memorial service, 3 generations, 2 vegetarians, 4 foodies, 6 people just wanting to eat together and process the day. I'm sorry I picked this place, because it wasn't the right spot, but who knew-none of us live in Indiana.
I requested a quiet table on the Open Table reservation. I repeated this request when the restaurant called me the same day to confirm the reservation, which was at 6:30, I thought early enough not to be in the midst of peak dining time. We were seated at a round table in the absolute middle of the restaurant, which was already buzzing with conversations. The hostess was clueless when I pointed out that this was not by any means a quiet table. They finally reseated us at a banquette, which was tolerable, but the fact that this request was completely disregarded was upsetting, to say the least.
The food was fine, not terrific, not terrible. The best entree turned out the be the eggplant, which I ordered, and was NOT your father's eggplant parm, but rather thinly sliced eggplant encasing ricotta and greens. It was well prepared and flavorful, very nice. The others at the table said their entrees (pasta and clams, and another with tortelloni) were rather bland, not memorable.
This is not a place for conversation or romance. It's more about making a splash, which just isn't all that impressive any more.

The food was very good however the waiter and staff continued to try to take our plates. If we set our fork down for one moment someone would try to grab your plate to clear. We obviously had plenty of food on our plates and were not finished. After 7 or 8 times it became extremely annoying. Otherwise I enjoy food.

The decor is sleek, modern, and clean. We were seated promptly when we checked in at our reserved time. The service was friendly and efficient. A calamari/shrimp appetizer featured freshly prepared calamari that was tender and delicious. The salmon main course was seared perfectly. I look forward to returning when I am in Indy again.

I had a HORRIBLE experience. Booked a 5:15 pm reservation. Checked in with hostess at 5:08 pm. Was told I arrived too early and that I'd need to wait to be seated until my reservation time. Was seated a few minutes later in a restaurant with three other patrons. WTF? Food was mediocre. Italians would be rather mortified. Server was pleasant but nervous. Didn't offer a second glass of wine, likely because the hostess kept checking my table to see when I was done. Couldn't stand having her hovering so often,

The garage parking at the JW Marriott for this dinner, using my self parking was RIDICULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was at dinner 2 hours, 15 minutes and my parking ticket was $33. What is wrong with you???? This will keep me from returning to this restaurant ever at this location. I was a female diner who did not want to be out on the Indianapolis streets alone going to another garage.

Reservations at 6:30, as we had a concert at 7:30. Seated at 6:35, ordered within 10 minutes. 7:10 - asked a manager what the delay was since we hadn't seen our server since ordering. Relayed information about our reservation and asked if we should be able to get in and out in 1 hour. He said yes, but they were really busy that night. Dinner appeared. Manager came to ask if food was okay, but never apologized for delay. Will not eat here in the future. I would hope that management would be prepared for reservations and not take walk-ins if they cannot offer an efficient level of service.

We were disappointed with our entrees. The spaghetti was just OK, although the side of meatballs was excellent. My guest's lasagna was dry and tasteless. (I have previously had the gnocchi and they were excellent.). Antipasti was good but arrived on a cracked cheese board that should have discarded for sanitary reasons. I brought it to the waiter's attention. I hope it has been thrown in the trash.

 (Chicago)·Dined on August 9, 2017

Service this visit was horrible. It took 15 minutes to get a server over to wait on us and take a drink order. I asked for the sea bass with Parmesan mushroom (only) risotto instead of polenta and they brought me risotto with pancetta, etc. I had to send it back and wait for my dinner while my colleagues let their meal get cold. The facial expression of the staff (chef) made me think they were annoyed but my two colleagues agreed that I clearly asked for Parmesan risotto with mushrooms only. The meal was very tasty when I finally received it.

Started with no valet parking, (all full), so parked in self-park...back to this later!

Next a fire alarm and evacuation alert was loudly announced, but after a few minutes of penetrating alarms, was cancelled.

Told them we were celebrating two retirements. The server, sweet but very inexperienced, brought a complimentary dessert WITH our before-lunch drinks. I've heard the saying, "Eat dessert first," but No, thank you with alcohol at 11:30 AM! After lunch would have been wonderful, so don't meant to sound ungrateful.

One had the sea bass and loved it. Two of us had the panini sandwiches, very average, although the bacon on the BLT was smokey and very good.

My first drink was supposed to have been top-shelf vodka (asked for Absolut Citron). Don't think Pinnacle is exactly top-shelf. My friend's mojito was terrible, according to her. The other liked his beer, but the server had to ask staff what the THREE draft beer selections were. We also informed her that two of the three were local, as she didn't know. Nice lady, just not educated in the spirits.

Back to parking. After a 2-1/2 hour visit over a very average lunch, I exited the parking garage...$33.00!!! $11.00 per hour to park for this less than good OpenTable experience. First and last time!
