Maialina Italian Kitchen + Bar
Known for Pastas, Flatbreads and various Italian style dishes
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!
gem of a find with great food and we sat at a high top table in the bar area with great service from the bar tenders.
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.
Absolutely fabulous meal! The ambiance was perfect, as was the service, which made this a perfect place for my wife and I to celebrate our anniversary.
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.
Great service. Wonderful 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.
Megan was our server and she was fantastic. The food was amazing. Everyone was very welcoming and accommodating. We will be back!
We came in at 9:30 on a Saturday night, greeted by the owner, he was super friendly. The lady at the bar was also very friendly & last but not least food was great!
Overall great experience. Excellent food and service. Thank you for a great evening!
Such a wonderful restaurant with the best Italian food in the city.
We love everything about Maialina! Making another reservation now.
We always love going to Mailina. It is one of our favorite fountain square spots.
First time here. Our server gave recommendations and they were all spot-on. Neighborhood jewel. We will return!
Megan, our server, is THE BEST. She makes the night so fun. I was so happy she was our server again.
Good food, friendly service, nice atmosphere. Will return!
We love maialina.. decided to take our family and they love it too! Great food, great service, ambience is enjoyable too
Delicious food, great service!
Overall very good, more of a northern Italian style of cooking with a lighter style and great flavor combinations! Good but simple wine list.
We had a Great meal. We shared a serving of Pomodoro Bruschette and I had the sausage pasta dish while my 2 companions had the Vodka pasta dish.
Perfect as always
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.
LOVE THIS PLACE!
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.
Fantastic food and staff. Not your reheated or chain style food.
Great food, fun location!
We loved our first visit. Great location. Great food. Excellent service. Give them a try.
The service was outstanding with several good recommendations. The salmon special was perfectly prepared
Our families new favorite Italian restaurant. Have not had a dish that we didn't LOVE. Always leave satisfied. Wait staff is great.
This is the restaurant everyone in the family choses for our get togethers out. So glad we found this place.
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.
So unique and delicious! Food and service are fabulous!
A great place for great Italian fare. Service is excellent. Cost is reasonable
Great service, lovely dining area with great view of Fountain Square area and incredible food!
Disappointed in the food. Far too much garlic, hard to taste anything else.
Delicious food, great atmosphere. Will absolutely come back. We had the gnocchi bolognese and lasagna, both were delicious.
Went for devour. Food was delicious, service was excellent. Whipped ricotta bruschette was the best thing I've ever eaten.
Birthday celebration, very nice evening. Waitress was excellent
Food/ drinks/ wine were all delicious!
Wonderful food and great service!!
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!
