At Iozzo’s Garden of Italy, quantity and quality go hand in hand. They do not cheat customers out of a hearty meal, especially with entrées that are served with a small house salad, a side of spaghetti, and the vegetable of the day. The medium-sized brick oven pizzas are also served with a small house salad, as are the pastas. There’s a good wine list that includes an ‘Interesting White’ and an ‘Interesting Red’ section among usual categories like pinot grigio, chardonnay, and cabernet sauvignon. If you have a larger party, large format bottles at one-and-a-half and three liters are also available.

Bazbeaux is the place to go for a great slice of Italian-style pizza. The restaurant’s humble beginnings trace back to pizza sold out of the small home of a grave digger in Broad Ripple in 1986. Having since expanded to their current Carmel, Broad Ripple and downtown Indianapolis locations, Bazbeaux restaurants have always remained at the heart of greater Indianapolis’ arts districts. At Bazbeaux you can create your own pizza with the restaurant’s traditional, exotic or premium toppings, or try one of Bazbeaux’s specialty pizzas like the colossus or pizza alla quattro formaggio. Bring friends because Bazbeaux’s 10-inch, 12-inch and 16-inch pizzas are sure to fill.
