Italian
Genuine Italian flavors fill an airy, modern space accented by lime-wash, white brick, blonde butcher block and silver lighting pendants. An antique pizza peel dating to the 1850s hangs on the wall, portraying Indaco’s dedication to authenticity. The restaurant boasts a craft cocktail program featuring Italian classics such as the Negroni and amaro on tap and housemade Italian sodas. This concept introduces traditional Italian eating to Upper King’s booming, fine-dining scene. A 2,900 square foot restaurant, Indaco offers 100 seats inclusive of the bar and patio.

Hostess made us stand and wait 10 minutes while they set a table... most of the restaurant was empty being a Monday night at 8:30. Manager had to come over and move them faster

Slightly let down by my experience here. My drink (The Boulevardier) was excellent, but the meatballs were too tough. The entrees looked great though, I would go back again to try more of the menu.

Loved it. The pizza was excellent and we really appreciated when the waitress told us that we didn't need a pizza each! We did however eat the 3 (instead of 4!). Appetizers were well proportioned and tasty. The wine was good and well priced as well.

Indaco is my favorite restaurant! Our server, Bob, always takes such great care of us and happily accommodated my request for a mocktail. He is very knowledgeable about the menu and does a great job timing each course. Trevor is an awesome manager and takes his time with each guest. Chef Micheal's menu is always fresh and delicious! We loved every dish! Thank you Indaco team!

Not one to normally write reviews, but our experience was worth sharing. The food was incredible. We’ve been to Italy several times (my husband and I were even married there) and the authenticity Indaco offers is the real deal. Between the knowledgable/friendly servers and the quality of the food- I highly recommend. They also have complementary valet!

The food is expensive for the portion size. I got the Agnolotti and the plate had about five pasta pieces on it. For being valentines week I would think there would be specials but there were none so that was also disappointing. Pictures are deceiving. The bread though with pesto dipping was great. Probably will not be back.

When I first walked in I was very impressed by the decor and the helpfulness of the bartender. After that most of my experience was less than average. The waitress disappeared half way thru the meal and my wife's black pasta meal was so salty she would have sent it back but did not want to embarrass herself in front of the other couple we were with. The portion size was also extremely small. Sorry to say I won't be back. Looks were deceiving.

The best and freshest pizza I have ever had. I could taste the freshness of the dough and every ingredient on the pizza (highly recommend the brussel sprout pizza). The half roasted chicken was incredibly moist and tender from wing to breast. Every element of our dishes was packed w/flavor. Finished w/the pistachio gelato that was sandwiched between to pizellelle cookies, so amazing. Scratch kitchen, excellent service and great ambiance. I would HIGHLY recommend.

The food here is always first rate as is the service. Everything is reasonably priced but Sundays are an especially good value with half price on some wines. The regular menu is small but its all good and there's a good range to chose from.

Highly recommend the tasting menu. We always do this when we bring big groups in.

Indaco is one of our favorite restaurants and we love bringing guests from out of town there. The menu has so many delicious options and the wine list is beautifully curated. We’ve always loved the service as well, but Friday evening was out of character. Our server was unsmiling and unfriendly and even got a bit peeved when we asked questions about the menu instead of ordering right away. She wasn’t very attentive either. We had brought guests from out of town and I’m pretty sure they didn’t feel welcomed. The food was wonderful as always, so we’ll definitely be back. Hopefully this was an aberration.

Too noisy to carry on a normal conversation.

Seated in the “patio” in order to avoid very tight seating in the dining room. Totally devoid of any kind of ambiance.

Food was acceptable but hard to enjoy.

Recommend offering a fish option like every other restaurant in the area.

Indaco was wonderful! I was in town with my dance company- on tour from NYC. We are a group familiar with fine dining, farm to table, and in general highl standards for food/flavor. We loved Indaco. We happily are there two nights in a row. Very delicious and beautiful simple decor-

The seating is very close, you can reach out and touch the person at the next table. (I'm a petite 105lb woman) "Cozy" but, too close for comfort. The service was average. Our waitress wasn't too friendly but I still left her a good tip. The food was barely edible. I LOVE Shrimp so I tried the Shrimp appetizer, they were awful, had to spit it out. Our chicken entre was burnt to a black crisp. The only thing edible was the veggies on the side. I normally like to take my food to-go if I don't finish but, not this. Olive Garden is better, in my opinion. I was referred here by a client of mine but will never return.

The food was absolutely perfection (if you go be adventurous and get the charred octopus - you will not regret it). Service was attentive but not pushy, the pace of the meal was on point. Although the restaurant is a little loud, it just makes the meal more fun since there’s a buzz in the air.

Perfect for visitors to town, girls night out or a date!
