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.

We love Ambrosia and have visited many times with friends and family. The food and service is ALWAYS outstanding. That being said, there is little to no social distancing and our table was right next to a full table of patrons. We will either wait for them to improve this situation or not return until after this global pandemic.

Ambrosia is our "go to" place for a "date night" dinner. The food is excellent and the servers are attentive without being intrusive. In these current times, they have taken precautions that make us feel safe. I recommend Ambrosia for a quiet, romantic dinner.

Ambrosia was an amazing, last minute date night! They have all of their tables properly spaced per Covid guidelines and you can tell they take it very seriously. We sat in the bar and the bartender served us. He was so pleasant and knowledgable. He made my husband a cocktail that he was obsessed with! The manager Mike came over and chatted with us as well as the owner Dan. Food and service was beyond exceptionable! We are already planning our next trip!

Despite being short-staffed, Ambrosia was great. The staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable - wearing masks, distancing tables, etc., and the food was excellent as always!

Honestly, not a great experience. We got seated in the bar at a table. Our server was the bartender. He was so busy between making drinks and the rail that he ran around like crazy. Our food came out, an entree was missing chicken. The gnocchi which was a recommendation by him and the other couple we were with, was so salty and gummy. The chicken finally came out and was so dry it was crunchy. (Not breaded either.) Honestly, dinner would have been sent dinner back if I felt like it wouldn't have taken forever to get another entree. At the end, not a great example of where I want to go spend my time and money. Sorry, Ambrosia. We won't back.

the food was absolutely delicious and the service was great... until it wasn’t. I didn’t get the food I ordered - I said it was no problem as I was hungry and the wrong food looked - and I’m happy to say WAS - delicious. But our second drink order never arrived, the extra order of bread never came and we really didn’t understand what was going on - because up to the point until our food arrived the waitress looking out for us did an amazing job. She comped my meal, despite me several times saying it wasn’t necessary, so there was acknowledgment something was off.

Anyway, whoever runs the bar makes WONDERFUL Aperol Spritz and despite some hiccups this was a wonderful evening in a pleasant little Broad Ripple place. Definitely will be back.

We had another great experience at Ambrosia recently. Excellent cuisine, prompt and friendly server. The only issue there is the street noise level when dining outside, which is preferred until we get a Covid vaccine.

Went for my mom’s birthday dinner and it was incredible! Our server was so helpful and provided samples of wine before we purchased a bottle. We sat on the patio so the noise from College Ave was a little loud at times but the patio is so beautiful it was worth it. The food was so fresh and flavorful. Love Ambrosia!
