“Always a pleasure”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

This is my go to spot on Monday nights. Just Monday, because it's my only night off. I highly recommend the Simply Grilled Ribeye. They do steak as well as anyone in town. The staff is always friendly and the atmosphere is great.

“Real Italy in Indianapolis”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

We were surrounded by adorable high school prom couples enjoying a really top notch dinner out. The regional Piedmont special menu was full of wonderful surprises! My 15 year old niece was treated royally and our dinners were amazing. I especially enjoyed the boar cooked in two ways, an amazing white wine that I will definitely have again, and great service. The pork ravioli was a bit undercooked but we were assured that would be adjusted for future customers! Cannot wait to go back with the outdoor dining room is open!

“Excellent experience!”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

Just when we had convinced ourselves that the American rendition of Italian couldn't possibly stack up against "authentic" Italian cuisine, we've been proven wrong for a THIRD time. (Indianapolis area Lorenzo's Ristorante and Matteo's being the other exceptions) We ordered an appetizer ( the scallops with goat cheese and crustini which was delicious), and a house salad and bread accompanied the entrees making this a reasonably priced meal as long as you don't order , say the $30 Lobster Ravioli which while GOOD wasn't GREAT and in our opinion, didn't justify the price. BUT the Lasagna Bolognese was honestly some of the best Lasagna we've EVER had and we are hardly "youngsters" when I say that! Portions were large , pacing of food as it was delivered by our server was quite good. Attentive but not intrusive staff. This is a local, family owned restaurant whose recipes have been passed down over the generations. ****For those attending events at Lucas Oil stadium, this is an easy walk and is definitely worth pairing the 2 venues/activities. ****
