My husband and I love Maialina
The food is always fresh and served hot, the service is great and the use of the older building is perfect! The gnocchi bolognese and Aperol spritz are favs!

We dined on New Year's Eve. Our server was delightful and the food was excellent. When signing the credit card receipt, my husband noted that the price for the amount of delicious food we enjoyed was incredibly reasonable. We will definitely return.

This has become my very favorite restaurant in Indianapolis. The food is amazing! The portions are generous and the service is very very good. We had a large group and ordered several appetizers and everyone got different dishes and we were all very satisfied with the quality of the food.

There really isn’t another Italian Restaurant like this in Indy or the surrounding area. I am skeptical of Italian restaurants (being from an Italian family). Honestly, I get tired of local Italian restaurants that insist on being fancy and overpriced, and not family friendly. Instead, this place reminds me of the family run Italian restaurants in any Little Italy, or countless neighborhoods out east, where the focus is squarely on serving quality food by friendly people. Don’t misunderstand. It’s a lovely atmosphere, and a new version of the old style family places we are lacking here. But, it is joyfully unpretentious and welcoming, even for families with children! It feels like you are being treated to somebody’s grandmother’s recipes from the Old Country. (And you probably are...). Portions are generous and prices are very reasonable and, more importantly, very appropriate. High quality Italian food does not need to be expensive. So glad we dined here! We will be back! I will also be recommending this place to all my family/friends.

Overall very good, more of a northern Italian style of cooking with a lighter style and great flavor combinations! Good but simple wine list.

Great Italian in Fountain Square. Perfect ratio of pasta to sauce, great apps (we love the ricotta bruschetta) and plenty of space in a socially-distanced eating world. We will be back.

Dinner served was Shrimp Scampi (was just ok), 3 cheese ravioli with Bolognese sauce (evening special and was amazing), salmon (was very good) and Vongole (excellent). As an appetizer, we shared the truffle mushroom flatbread. The flatbread might have been the best item served all night. Was fresh, great mushroom flavor, served hot and very tasty! Service was exceptional. Highly recommend and will return.

Went on a Saturday night for bday celebration. Had calamari and fig and sausage flatbread as appetizers. Calamari very fresh and flatbread was perfect for sharing and had great flavors. Mains were great and very filling. Homemade pasta makes a difference and the shrimp were huge and perfectly cooked. Wish for the price some type of bread was served with the pasta. We ordered the garlic cheese toast which was perfect to have to sop up our pasta sauces! Shared the tartufo for dessert and took a tiramisu home for later. We will be back and have told our friends they should definitely try it out! Service was excellent ( can’t remember her name, maybe Alexis?) and view from our table was nice to be right in the middle of Fountain Square action.

I LOVE coming here! It's always a fantastic time. The food is amazing and a great value. Don't skip out on the artichokes or the bruschetta. The vodka sauce is phenomenal. This time I had the gebari. Also amazing. I love spicy food and this is perfect. Definitely check them out. Ask for Shane!
