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!

Great corner table with quick cocktail service and appetizers came out to temp...one hot, one cold...yum!

Tomatoes slices “as big as your head” in the caprese salad.

Pork medallions in Marsala was wonderfully flavored, plenty of mushrooms, and so tender!

Our drinks and wine selection were cold and mixed oh-so yummy!

Thanks to Meagan, our server, and great hostess! We’ll be back again, this makes three times!

Maialina Italian Kitchen + Bar is an excellent addition to our neighborhood. After neglecting to make a reservation, the incredible staff found a way to fit me and my party in during a busy Saturday night service. The drinks and food were incredible. Don't sleep on the Tiramisu here! Can't wait for a return visit.

waited for a long time for Maialina to open but was very disappointed. The facility is adorable and it's a nice atmosphere. But the food, while not particularly bad, was not especially good either. It honestly was more like bar food instead of what you'd expect at those prices. I supposed we were hopping for something like Milano's but this is not an adequate replacement for that. we were very disappointed and will not be returning.

UPDATE: We revisited the restaurant. I tried the lasagna this time. It was probably some of the best lasagna I’ve had. The portion was very generous and the wait staff was attentive. We also tried the garlic cheese bread. It was really good. The cheese was not mozzarella but, it had a very distinguished flavor. I’ll be back.

I would simply recommend Maialina for the atmosphere. The portions are kind of small for the upper end price. My Chicken Parmesan came out burnt - and the waitress (who was great) even admitted it after I tried eating it and couldn’t any more. She brought me another breast to go (I was kind of full at this point), once I got home I realized it was also burnt, though not near as bad as the first. The side of spaghetti was probably the highlight of my meal. My reservation asked for a standard seat, and we received a high top which want a huge deal. Overall, despite the cool atmosphere, I left undoubtedly disappointed.

Hi Carl, Thanks for taking the time to leave some honest feedback. I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your meal. The chicken parmesan is one of our most popular items, so it's unfortunate to hear it wasn't cooked properly for you that evening. We would love to try to make this right for you. Please send us an email at info@maialinaindy if you would like to discuss this further. Best, Francesca
