This was our second visit. It was a good as the first. As chance would have it we got the same table and waiter as the first time. He was really good. Knows the menu and made good recommendations. My wife had fried oysters as an appetizer and they were large and prepared just right and were among the best she had ever had. I had crab cakes appetizer and they were also very good, plenty of crab meat. The entrees were very good. Wife had Veal Piccata which was tender and tangy. I had spaghetti with a mixture of the family sauce and bolognese, recommend by our waiter to mix sauces and it was excellent. Iozzo's is on our list to return for a third visit.

Our experience at Iozzo's was fantastic. Phil was our server and he made the most amazing suggestions. The drinks, the appetizer, the salad, the bread and the meal were all nothing short of amazing. I can't say enough good things about our experience. You have to eat here for good Italian.

The food, atmosphere, and service was phenomenal! I took my boyfriend for his birthday, and we split the Taste of Iozzos, which was perfect for both of us! I'm a a very picky eater, and I loved everything I tried😊

Always delivers! The food is always great, the service amazing and friendly, and love the specials. Had the pesto crusted scallops to start, wedding soup, and crusted pork chop w/ the mushroom risotto for dinner. Then canolis for dessert. All of it was delicious and served perfectly. Thank you!

We always enjoy going to Iozzo's for their great food, nice wine selection, and we love the atmosphere whether inside or out on the patio.
Last night we had Brian as our server as we often do. We enjoy his friendly, attentive care as he guides us through choices with much knowledge and personal touches that continue throughout the meal.

Excellent wait staff - engaging and knowledgeable. The food was delicious for all members of my party. The noise level was high at our table impeding quiet conversation. The noise level did convey a lively atmosphere. I suspect tables around the edge of the venue are quieter. The wines were of a good mix and value. I definitely plan to return for more meals there.

We come to Iozzo's to celebrate our new year's the past 5 years. Shane was our server and he made us feel very special even though this was his final day as an employee there. We didn't know it at the time we were his very last party.

Simply SPECTACULAR! A long-time family restaurant tradition reinvigorated and new. FANTASTIC food - highly recommend the Pork Oslo Buco and the fresh Cannoli. Ask for Brian - he's fun, knows the history of the restaurant, and is a genuinely generous host. Love that they offer off-street parking ($0) and are just on the edge of downtown. We will be back!

Thank you for having our table ready for us. It was a very busy night, but our waiter was great. Getting our food was a little slow, but do to the packed crowd it was fine. The food is always great. We will come for more great service and food soon.

We will definitely be returning to this restaurant. While not intimate in a romantic way, it is a cozy, friendly, intimate restaurant. Our server was very attentive and familiar with items on the menu, We loved it!

This may be the most expensive meal my wife and I have purchased in 20 years of marriage, we are frugal. We decided to splurge. The food and service were excellent. The atmosphere was nice. Our only complaint was hidden add ons; slight change to salads and entree increased the bill by over $10. Be sure to ask if there are extra charges for suggestions the waiter makes.

We had eaten there before, but this time the food was really outstanding. We tried a number of items and all of them were excellent. The portions are just right and the preparation and presentation were great. The prices are really appropriate for the quality and quantity and I strongly recommend this place for special occasions for families and friends.

We were there 12/24. The food, which is more traditional Italian fare, is quite good, and the ambience was inviting (though the room was a bit chilly). However, we had to wait more than half an hour for our table (we had reservations for 6 pm and arrived right on time); the hosts were pleasant about this, and they did have two large parties. Our waiter was not particularly good -- quick to loudly mispronounce Italian words ("buon natale" is not pronounced "boing natalie," but I heard him say this at least four times) but slow to put our order in. We have eaten there before and had a much better experience, though, and would recommend the restaurant to others.

I had not been in for quite awhile, but we visited before a Sunday afternoon Colts game. Love the food and the atmosphere. Plenty of selections for kids and adults alike. Not too crazy of a scene for a Colts game like some other downtown venues and of course not too long of a walk to the game. If I lived downtown, this would be my go to restaurant.
