Have a special date, and nowhere special to take her? Not anymore! Head to Mama Carolla’s Old Italian Restaurant, the perfect spot for the quintessential date night, a combination of the elegant atmosphere, good food, and good wine promises a memorable dining experience. Located in Broad Ripple Village in North Central Indy, Mama Carolla’s represents one of the favorite pastimes for an Indianapolis date, a quiet evening at a great Indianapolis restaurant.
Mama Carolla’s Old Italian Restaurant prides itself on giving each patron an authentic Italian experience upon each visit. There’s no hurry inside the dimly lit, cozy restaurant-instead, the staff is focused on letting you relax and enjoy an expertly prepared meal on your own time schedule. So make sure to start out with the “Antipasti, or appetizers. Several appealing selections grace the menu, including such traditional favorites as warm garlic cheese bread, jumbo shrimp cocktail, and fried ravioli, as well as Mama Carolla’s specialties grilled shrimp stuffed with goat cheese, Sicilian asparagus patties, artichoke fritters, and Italian prosciutto and fresh melon. Caesar and garden salads, as well as Caprese and Mediterranean varieties, are available as starters as well.
When it comes to the main course, you might automatically go with the pasta, given the Italian theme. But don’t overlook the other entrees-the bistecca (steak), pollo (chicken), vitello (veal), maiale (pork), and pesco (fish) are all delicious options too.
If you’re not too stuffed at the end of your meal, cap off a romantic evening by sharing one of the generous, tempting desserts. Traditional favorite Tiramisu is always a hit, or be brave and try the ricotta cake with blackberries-a homemade favorite at Mama Carolla’s!
