Iozzo’s Garden of Italy

Serving the people of Indianapolis since 1930, Iozzo’s has had a long time to perfect their menu – and it shows. They take traditional family favorites and add their own, modern twist, to serve up something truly unique. Open for lunch, dinner, and late-night munching, diners can even choose gluten-free options if they have dietary restrictions.

Iaria’s Italian Restaurant

A cozy, multi-generational family restaurant serving up authentic old-world favorites in Indianapolis since 1933, Iaria’s is a seafood lover’s dream with some of the richest, most flavorful seafood pasta and fettuccini with their original clam sauce. You’ll also find vegetarian and many other options worth trying!

OP Italian

Fresh-made pasta, slow-cooked meats, locally-sourced vegetables, and modern flair make Italian comfort food new again. Choose from a wide range of re-imagined dishes like the Neapolitan pizza, spicy shrimp spaghetti, braised lamb shank, or explore the menu and find your own slice of bliss among its pages. You can’t go wrong at OP Italian!

Mama Carolla’s Old Italian Restaurant

The quaint, cozy atmosphere will get you in the door, but the food will keep you coming back to Mama Carolla’s for more! Enjoy a rich variety of Italian flavors, such as rosemary chicken lasagna and veal saltimbocca, or grab a tender steak and indulge your inner carnivore.


If you’re a fan of authentic stone hearth pizza made with carefully sourced local ingredients, then you’ll love Napolese. Each dish on the seasonal menu is crafted to delight – with generous portions and the perfect balance of seasonings to make your mouth water. Regulars praise the pizza, but if you’re a fan of garlic, you can’t go wrong with the focaccia.
