This is my second time here and I was hoping I would enjoy my dinner more this time - unfortunately that was not the case. The salmon was hard on top and the potatoes lacked flavor. My husbands chicken parm also lacked flavor and tasted quite bland. Meatballs and the tiramisu were tasty, though.

The food was great. Loved the selection s on the menu. Service was very good, food came out quickly and piping hot. We were in town for the marathon. We didn't land until 3:30 and had to get to the Expo before it closed. We usually like to eat early the night before a race but i couldn't get a reservation until 7:15. We finished up at the Expo earlier than expected and were able to get in an hour and a half earlier than our reservation. Thank you OP Italian!

This was hands down the best dinner I've had in three years! The food was outstanding, price was right, service was great, all with an upscale yet relaxed ambiance. Expect to pay $10 for parking as 90 minutes free is not enough.

Service was outstanding. The food was just so so to say the least.really nothing to write home about, I felt like I was at Olive Garden. Actually, I've Gardrn is way better.

While my dish was good,my husbands was around $20 and very small. These entrees do not include anything like a side, salad, there's no bread for the table. Also, the appetizer was NOT good! The desert menu was very small and just basically gelato. The restaurant is beautiful, inside a beautiful hotel and our waiter was great, so I would recommend at least trying it. However, be prepared to fork over the money and not get a lot in return.

First, Jasmine, our waitress was outstanding.
My steak was overcooked from what ordered but still very good.
Wife has food allergies so she ordered a gluten free pasta. It sucked. She still had a slight reaction. The restaurant took it away and made a substitute for her. We've been there twice before and the gluten free was great. Maybe just a bad day this time.

For starters, the mushroom was very good. However, the meatball was on the ok side: it was too salty to eat without the side bread. The blackberry cocktail was outstanding and would be my recommendation. The pastas were ok. Their sauces were fine but the pastas themselves were either undercooked or overcooked. This restaurant could serve better quality pastas based on its price point.

Wanted to try something new before a downtown show. Food outstanding - the lamb shank earned its award at Zoobilation! Atmosphere fun. Complimentary valet a nice amenity although we did not use it. Main complaint was with service... There is a line between being friendly and attentive and allowing people space to be engaged in a private conversation that has not been mastered by our server. I do not think we went 5 minutes without an enthusiastic and disruptive “How is everything?” “Can I get you another drink?” (Even though cocktail still half full.) and 75% of the time it was while my husband and I were mid sentence. It is possible to replenish water glasses and clear dishes in a low key and invisible manner if the situation calls for that. We were on a rare date night where we were hoping to have an equally rare uninterrupted conversation... At the end it was almost comical. Lots to like and I am not opposed to trying again but unlikely soon.

Convenient location near the center of Indianapolis. Food was good.....the daily special *lamb stew) was very tastee. We were surprised no bread was available as part of our meals.

As expected, since the restaurant is part of Mariott the food was a little pricey.
