Iaria's Italian Restaurant
Iaria's Italian Restaurant was established in 1913 by Pietro and Antonia Iaria and is currently run by fourth generation family members, Matthew Iaria and Carla Russell. Entering Iaria's is like taking a step back in time...not much has changed over the years. The restaurant and bar both offer booth seating and the decor consists mostly of family and celebrity pictures. The Food: sauces, meatballs, sausage, pizzas are made in house and weekly specials are offered. The Bar: cocktails, extensive wine list and craft beer are all available. It is a popular spot for locals and celebrities. It is a great location for a small get together, business luncheon, holiday party or just a night out. The Iaria family looks forward to seeing you soon...
I took my husband here for his birthday. We did not have reservations, but we were seated right away. Our server was friendly and brought us warm Italian bread and our drinks within a couple of minutes. I ordered the Penne with marinara and my husband ordered the shrimp linguine dinner. His salad came out and it was ordinary. He said the Italian dressing was very good. We waited quite awhile for our entrees, but they did come out eventually. My penne was very good. Not sweet like some other reviews say. I could tell by looking at my husbands linguine that it was dried out. It was stuck together due to not using oil. There was hardly any sauce on the pasta and he said it had no flavor. The shrimp were very big and that is all that he ate out of it. I am Italian American and always looking to support local business, but I will have to pass on this one. I think I will go to Milano Inn next time. Even Romano's Macaroni Grill does a better job!
It's a must visit--I'm not from Brooklyn or anything, just an Indy native, and if you're like me and would pick a mom&pop joint over a chain any day, then you've gotta eat here. Plus it's a little bit of Indy history, and the pasta is actually reealy good. Try the vodka sauce, I love it!
It's like a diner and not a fine Italian restaurant. The food was simple. Bread was boring, soup out of a can, salad dressing was awesome, but the salad quality was out of a bag, bla bla. I was impressed with the homemade ravioli, but it wasn't excellent. All this for prices that are too much.
My wife and I live nearby, and this is one of our favorite places on earth. We only eat the veal picatta, although the pizza, meat balls, and other veal are highly regarded. Thursday night wine specials make it fun to try new Italian varieties. Pay the extra dollar for the homemade roquefort dressing- it's almost all cheese!
True, the bread is nothing to write home about, but the bleu cheese dressing is to die for, the sauce is sweet but very pleasing to the palate, I LOVE the Cheese tortelini, meatballs are wonderful. The bartender is great (we eat in the bar) and servers act like we're old friends. I tend to favor northern Italian cuisine, but for southern Italian- THIS IS THE PLACE!!! But hey, what do I know, I'm Scottish!!! Hope they're around another 70 plus years!!
