Anytime we want Italian we think of Iaria's. My father is 88 and it is his all time favorite place for spaghettti and meatballs. We just were there over the weekend and had a special that included chicken piccata - Tortelloni and lasagna. First let...More

Not Italian gourmet, but honest food and flavors with quality ingredients and technique. Prices are fair and the Peroni is draft. Service was outstanding.

I go here when I am in town. A little outside the downtown area, but worth the trip. Never had anything less than excellent. Service can be a little slow when they get busy, but the food is worth the wait.

Long standing Italian restaurant near downtown Indy. 75 years of authentic Italian food. Great house chianti, great spinach ravioli. Famous salad was a hit at our table of six, but I am not a fan of iceberg lettuce, otherwise a good salad and great dressings....More

When I went today, there is a child's menu because we had a young child and he ate the child's plate size of spaghetti meatballs - which would have suited me fine.
