Cheap, filling, Italian food

As other reviewer's have said, the restaurant is exactly what it claims to be: cheap, filling and usually tasty Italian food. Nothing too fancy, and nothing too spicy, but every meal comes with a limited choice of appetizer and a dessert. For quick food, decent service, and a filling meal, this is... read more

Any time we're in Indy, this is where we meet up. Not too pricey, good food, centrally located. Within walking distance of Downtown, Circle Center, and Bankers Life

Our server was exceptional! She was kind, and anticipated our every need, which mainly included a gallon and a half of drinks for each of us. The food was very good, and we were seated quickly. All in all, it was an amazing experience! I will eat there again for sure!

This place is famous and you can tell by the line outside the door at lunch time during any busy period. The food is OK and I would say not worth the wait. Its cheap so that is one thing going for it, but if its crowded you can do better at any Italian place down the street.

It is exactly what it advertises itself to be. Comfortable environment with excellent spaghetti. I've only eaten here twice but I enjoyed it both times.

We had a nice dinner. Love the bread,which our server Eric, happily brought us as much as we wanted. He checked on us and kept us with full drinks, etc. Even though the place was packed. Love this place! All the different chairs and chandeliers.

We picked this as one of our vacation restaurants from previous reviews and being close to the Indianapolis Convention Center. We weren't disappointed. The food was fantastic! The service was a tad slow but understandable since they were swamped. Our server did the best he could with the situation. He always stopped back to keep us informed. We enjoyed the... More
