Milano Inn, Indianapolis
I am traveling through to Indianapolis and have heard mix reviews about the Milano Inn restaurant. Can anyone give me any recommendations for good Italian food downtown IF they don't like Milano? Thanks!
Mixed reviews is about all you'll get for Italian restaurants in downtown Indy. Some people like Iaria's, but I'm not a fan. I've had good meals at Agio, but they're more Mediterranean than Italian and can be inconsistent. Mama Corolla's get's mixed reviews too, and they're not really downtown. Amalfi is good, but they're definitely not downtown.
There are a few Italian chains downtown of course. Buca di Beppo is downtown, as is The Old Spaghetti Factory. But unless I'm forgetting something, there's really not much to choose from downtown.
I agree, Amici's is owner operated, and can be very good. Avoid the Friday Saturday rush. But this will be the best you can do downtown. Capri and Amalfi are going to be 7 to 8 miles north, but will be better Italian meals. There is a new Italian place 900 south meridian, but I have not tried it yet.
