Great food and friendly service. Tomato sauce is among the best I've had out. Comfortable place with nice menu selections and fair prices. Not to be missed when in Indy.

Really terrific Italian food. This place is authentic. The menu has a great variety of dishes. The food is delicious and very well presented. The service was terrific; our server, Nicky, was very attentive. The place has plenty of off-the-street parking. Their prices are very reasonable.

Iarias Italian restaurant is so old school Italian. It's the real deal. Mate's Mozzarella is superb as an appetizer. Although I would love to see it as an Italian fried mozz sandwich. Our server Julie was great...prompt, attentive and funny. Our dinners were delicious. Tiramisu for dessert was a perfect finish to an amazing dinner. And my espresso, perfect crema.... More

The meatballs are delicious and remind my friend of her childhood growing up with an Italian step mom! Service is always speedy and friendly!

We were referred to Iaria's by a friend and were so glad we went. It is an old fashioned Italian restaurant in its fourth generation of owners. The food was delicious - we had a special seafood pasta dish that was fabulous. Our friend told us to get the fettucine and clam sauce but when we heard how much seafood... More

We ate at Iaria's on Saturday evening. We had reservations for 7pm and they got us seated right away. Our waitress was great, she was very attentive, our food came out very quickly. The meatballs with the spaghetti were really good. Overall the meal was great, the service was outstanding and the value for your money is good.

Iaria's is not fancy but it served some of the best Italian food in Indy using old family recipes. We usually skip the appetizers, but the garlic cheese bread is delicious, especially when paired with the chunky marinara sauce. Our favorite entrees are egg plant parmigiana, chicken piccata, spinach ravioli and fettuccini alfredo. And no meal is complete without a... More

Iaria's was recommended by a friend. So happy we went. Fun, bustling atmosphere. Customers ranged from families with kids/babies to couples to large groups to seniors. Great, helpful staff. Food was delicious and plentiful. Will absolutely return. If you don't have a reservation, call and get on the wait list. One piece of advice -- beer and wine is served... More

After reading others reviews maybe we had a bad night with an entire wait staff off...but our experience was unfortunately disappointing. This place is renowned for many years of serving the Indianapolis market (they advertise open since 1933). It is even touted as one of the best places to dine in Indiana. We can remember coming here as a kid... More

Such a great Italian place in Indianapolis. Family owned since the beginning. Very simple in appearance but the food is always so good.
