The food was so good here. I had the chicken parmigiana and my daughter had the chicken fettuccine. They both were so good.

Overall, not terrible. It's your typical spaghetti options. Food is decent, and portions are filling. Definitely reccomend the upstairs bar area for smaller parties as there are plenty of tables and first come first serve.

Great location. Service could have been better. Before finishing our salads our main arrived. Better timing with order delivery would have been great. The food was good but not great. Perfect parking place for attending a Pacers game.

Good value for Italian food downtown. Nothing fancy just good home style food. You won’t leave hungry. I had a spicy sauce on spaghetti which was very flavourful. My husband had meatballs and spaghetti - very good. Atmosphere is cool. Would be a good place...More

Hour and 15 minute wait. Nice decor. Cold draft of outside air at our table. Appetizer was good. Entrees arrived luke-warm (at best). Friendly and appropriately attentive but barely audible server (not just me and my old ears...no one could hear her). Their sauce is...More

My wife and I dined here for our anniversary after visiting the Escape Room, which is located directly above the restaurant. Our food was excellent, the service attentive and the ambiance romantic and delightful. Recommend.

There are parking meters on Meridian and a parking garage about two blocks South of the restaurant. You could park at Circle Center, but it would be a little bit of a walk too.

Yes, I know they used to, but normally the wait is not that long & you can always walk across the street to the Mall & shop for a while IF the wait is too long.
