I have been to Mama Carolla's several times and it always has good food and a family atmosphere. My friends also like it. They also have a breakfast restaurant next door that is excellent for breakfast.

Italian home cooking and highly recommended. One disadvantage - they do not take reservations and there is usually a wait. Excellent food and reasonable prices

My wife and I frequent this restaurant as it is close to our house. I like the fact that it is a local restaurant and doesn't have that chain restaurant feel to it. The fried raviolis are awesome and a great appetizer. I have tried many different menu items and never been disappointed. Service has always been good when we have dined here. I recommend trying this out if you are looking for something different and unique to Indianapolis.

This restaurant, located in an old house in the middle of Indianapolis has great ambiance and even better food. I would avoid it during prom season on weekends, though, as it is a popular spot!
