Italian
Ambrosia was founded on the principle that the best food - and the best times of our lives - begin with love. In the Pizzi family kitchen in Liguria, Italy, the dinner table was a treasured space for family and friends. Since 1979, the Pizzi family, which now includes Gino's daughters Manuela, Anna, and Francesca, has been bringing that same love and commitment to the Ambrosia kitchen. Regular patrons and staff are all part of the family, and first-time visitors are welcomed like old friends.

Third time going. I like it well enough, I’ll continue to dine here. If you like finer Italian, you can’t go wrong at Ambrosia.

SUPERB experience. White fish special and the cod were OUTSTANDING. Waiter David added humor, Joy and excellent suggestions. And Ohmyword the tiramisu and cannoli were the best. Today we exercise and remember the fun we had with friends.

We had dinner to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The food was tasty and true Italian flare. The staff are very nice and made our evening very nice. A special shout out to Manager Mike Cook for making the birthday celebration extra special with a delicious Lemoncello cake! ( maybe it will become a regular dessert choice in the future!😉) Thank you. Susie & Tim

Chose Ambrosia for a birthday dinner. Everything was delicious; tricolore salad, fettuccine bolognese, spumoni and the Cosmos were great. My husband loved his minestrone soup and spaghetti with meatballs. We ate outside which was nice and they have shades for the late afternoon sun. Meals are always memorable at Ambrosia for both food and service. I have to give a special shout-out to our waitress last night; she was exceptional- I’m sorry I don’t remember her name!

The food is good at Ambrosia, but sitting outside was not as great with the noise from motorcyclists, cars, horns, blaring music. While that was intermittent, it was enough to detract from the ambience. The server was wonderful and good-natured!

First night out since having a baby. The staff recognized that and treated us very well. My favorite Italian restaurant in Indy by far. Best service hands down. When we get a chance to go out again for date night, it will definitely be at Ambrosia.
