    We love the family recipes from the Liguria area of Italy. Even more, we respect the CONSISTENCY of the dishes served. Taste you can count on, over and over.

    1st time. Loved it!! Very cool vibe. Server was awesome! Prices so reasonable! Only bummer, an Italian restaurant that doesn’t serve bread is a little wrong but other than that all great!! Food delicious. Next time I’m getting what my friend got!! It is a little loud but that won’t deter me!! Can’t wait to go back!

    Food was exceptional and service was just as excellent! Max was our server and even gave us a free dessert for it being our first time there! Max made our experience even better he was so nice, patient and helpful. He answered every question, refilled every empty drink and made sure our night was just as pleasant as the food. I got the the gnocchi bolognese it’s so full of flavor it’s amazing! My boyfriend got the spicy vodka pasta with chicken and he loved it! The tiramisu was outstanding as well. This has now become our new favorite Italian place. 10/10!

    Our little family went to celebrate my birthday/early Valentine’s Day and it was wonderful! I have a 4 year old and in lieu of a kids menu they offer smaller portions of main items. The spaghetti and meatballs are kid approved! The rest of the menu is wonderful and this is a great cozy restaurant for a date night!

    Maialina is my Italian fix when in Indianapolis visiting my son. The service is fantastic, food delicious (I love the Shrimp Primavera), and atmosphere anywhere from laid back to energetic depending upon the time of evening. We like to go early if it’s a weekend so the noise level is down to enjoy a quiet conversation. Upon recommendation we tried the lasagne this trip and it was perfect. Our waiter, Jaeden, was fabulous

    We went for the Devour Menu. Hadn't been to the restaurant for quite awhile. The servings were generous and the wine we ordered was very good. The service was great too.

    Food and drinks were delicious! They did forget the dressing on our Caesar salads. We went during their devour menu. Because of devour going on, they were pretty busy so it took awhile for us to receive service. They also did not ask how we wanted our checks divided or if we were even ready for it yet, so they put it all on one. We just put both forms of payment down so we didn’t have to wait for our server to return to the table again.

    Delicious food each time we dine! They are so understanding and cooperative with celiac disease and cooking to be “celiac safe.” We frequently dine here due to the great staff truly understanding cross contamination with gluten.
