I stopped into this little family owned Cafe last night. I started with side salad that was amazing! Wonderful warm crusty bread accompanied with the most marvelous dipping oil. Then came the Chicken Parmesan over spaghetti. The chicken cutlet was lightly breaded and so tender! I did not have room for dessert so I bought two cannoli's to go! Stephanie,... More

I'll never have to wait for a Chicago trip to have good Italian beef! Authentic Italian grinders, entrees, and desserts are available at this small family-run restaurant. Everything, including the pasta, is made fresh daily. Family recipes are used to prepare the delicious food, and many ingredients are purchased from local vendors or imported from Italy. Conveniently located near I-65... More

Wow! I was treated to dinner and most especially, dessert here. I loved it. I was impressed by the meal and the great service given the size of our party, which strained the available space. For me, though, the attraction is the fresh cannoli. No BS, these are real, made on site Italian classics. Love them! The preceding meal was... More

My wife can only eat fresh made pasta and that is what you get at the Cannoli Queen. The pasta is wonderful and the sauce is flavorful. The cannolis are amazing and made fresh when you order. This is the real deal for authentic Italian food.

We are visiting for the Indy 500 and consulted TA for a dinner place near our hotel. There is a reason this place is rated so highly...it was great! My husband had the special which was steak, pasta and sauce. I had the manicotti. Both were really good. Save room for dessert...the "Italian Crack" was even better! The owner actually... More

My nephew took my husband and I here because it is one of his favorite places to go. My husband is Italian so it is fun for him to see how authentic these places are. I had fettuccine and he had spaghetti and meatballs, both of which were very good. The best thing for me was the dessert. I don't... More

Went above and beyond to accommodate us. We were a group of 4 and 1 child. The waitress made us feel at home and even gave our child a cookie. The Italian crack dessert was amazing. Pasta was homemade and authentic. We will be returning and highly recommend it.

My husband and I love to support independently owned businesses. We live nearby Cannoli Queen and have been meaning to try it for quite some time. We finally went tonight and we will definitely be back. Everyone working there was so incredibly nice and friendly and our food and dessert was wonderful. I had the fettuccine alfredo, salad and bread... More

The owners of this restaurant could not be more friendly and accommodating. The meals are generously portioned and one meal was perfect to split. However, Based upon the reviews here, we expected much more. There is little atmosphere and no wine is served in this Italian restaurant. The atmosphere was much like a takeout restaurant with a small seating area.... More

The staff here is very friendly. The pasta dishes were good with large portions; however serving the entree in a foil tray was not to our liking. The food would taste better on plain ole china plates. Foil trays are ok for carry out, but not ideal for restaurant dining. The deserts here are fantastic though.
