My hubby and I chose this for our date night. The food was delicious!!! We started with the fried calamari which was very tasty. I then had the snapper special which was to die for. There was a large party next to our table that was pretty boisterous but other than that, everything was great. My husband love his spicy meatballs with spaghetti!!

Upscale enough for an expensive splurge dinner, yet casual enough for just a nice Italian meal. The waiter selected the perfect bottle of wine for our 10th anniversary celebration. We will be back next time we're in Indy.

My husband took me here for our first date night in forever after having our little one—it was also my birthday. The ambiance was nice, the service was great, and the food was fantastic!! I had the filet con fungi (um, divine!) and my husband got the chicken parm (also divine!). The waiter, knowing we were celebrating my birthday, brought out a piece of their famous tiramisu on the house. Wow. So stinkin’ good!! Overall an incredible experience. Will most definitely be going back!!

Met my best friends from high school for dinner there. Been to Sangiovese many times. Have never been disappointed. Great value for the high quality and the consistency of the quality stand out. Great Italian restaurant!

Wife and I went for our anniversary. The wait staff were attentive and respectful. The wait time was not long at all and the food is very good! The servings are not small and the prices were extremely good considering it's a higher end restaurant. There were people in dress clothes down to nice jeans and casual shirts. Definitely will go back again!

We were there on a weekday night when they were not so busy that folks were crowding the bar area so the fact that we were sitting in the bar was not an issue. It definitely would have been a terrible spot if the bar was full. Ended up being cozy. Food was delicious and they made me my favorite drink even though it was not on the bar menu anymore. Service was great. I love this place. Only issue i ever have is it can get loud and tables are close together so hit or miss on the cozy thing.

Zach was our waiter. Fantastic service! Food was very good. My entree was excellent! The appetizer and wedge salad were good, but not excellent. However, I am sensitive to salt and I did ask for bacon on my wedge salad. It was a little too salty for my liking but blame that more on my taster than anything. Will definitely go back!

Available items on the menu was as expected for an Italian restaurant of this quality but instead went with the risotto special. Staff was attentive and friendly and the food was excellent and came quickly. The very minor issue was a lack of a children's menu but they did have an options available for children once we asked. Was the first but not the last time eating in the restaurant.

Food was good but not outstanding. Prices were fair. Pretty loud atmosphere and kind of tight. Service was average. Overall I gave it 4 stars so it is a good restaurant. Just not good enough to make it a regular place.

Food was amazing and we had the round table in the corner which help a bit with the noise.( It wasn't too crowded, but voices seem to carry a bit.) Our waiter was amazing, very informative and very patient with 5 ladies! It was a birthday celebration and the birthday girl was presented with a yummy dessert, complete with a candle! Made her day very special!!!

So on previous visits, the food has been excellent. Tonite I wasn't very pleased with the dish I ordered. I ordered the Veal Milanese from the Devour menu. The food on the plate was floating in olive oil. The mashed potatoes tasted as if they'd been made hours before and were very gluey. The green beans were soaked in olive oil to the point that they were tasteless. Having said that, the rest of our party was very pleased with their meals (risotto, fish special and chicken parm) and the tomato bisque with the lump crab was excellent.

Fish was cold, barely any wine was given in huge glass, the only thing good was the waiter was polite. For $100 i felt ripped off. Biggest issue was poor cooking.
