Indianapolis Italian restaurants make for a great dinner out in the city, whether it’s a romantic meal for two or a family pasta dinner. One can’t-miss Italian spot in Indianapolis would have to be Mama Carolla’s, which frequently lands on NUVO’s Best of Indy list. Another Indy favorite is Iaria’s Italian Restaurant, a kid-friendly spot famous for its spaghetti (preferably topped with the housemade meatballs). The Old Spaghetti Factory is another longtime downtown staple among visitors and locals looking for things to do Indianapolis—you might even eat your meal there in a old-fashioned trolley car. New Italian places continue to pop up around the area, including Simeri’s Italian Restaurant in Fortville.
