Sangiovese Restaurant: Old Country Romance in Northeast Indianapolis

Sangiovese Ristorante is an upscale Italian restaurant in northeast Indianapolis that offers not only some of the most delicious food in the city, but also some of the best live jazz music in Indianapolis. Not content to stop at that, it is also a well-known exhibiting venue for art in Indianapolis, wine tastings, and other special events.

It is, however, first and foremost a restaurant, and a splendid one at that. From the antipasti to the soup and salads and authentic Italian entrees, the menu is designed to intrigue and to please. Try the poached Atlantic salmon Italian style, topped with tomatoes and dolled up with fresh basil, olive oil and the house pinot grigio reduction. Or Sangiovese‘s eight-ounce filet, grilled and served with portabella mushrooms topped with a special marsala cream.


And you simply cannot go to an authentic Old Country restaurant and ignore the pasta. There’s Sangiovese’s “spaghetti fra diavlo,” with gulf shrimp and peppers in a delectable tomato cream sauce. The lasagna is a Sangiovese favorite, with homemade lasagna noodles and sauce. The Ravioli alla Sangiovese is stuffed with sausage, cheese, tomatoes, risotto and capers and decorated with a white wine and parmesan sauce. And the list goes on. And on.

The wine list, as you might expect, is a thing of beauty as well, with flavorful reds, whites and sparkling wines, all carefully selected to enhance your Italian dining experience. The folks at Sangiovese’s restaurant are experts when it comes to the fruit of the grape, as evidenced by their many wonderful wine tasting events.

You can arrange to have a private party or corporate meeting at Sangiovese Ristorante, or they will cater for your next at-home gathering. Parties at Sangiovese’s are accommodated in semi-private rooms during lunchtime or dinner hours.


At Sangiovese restaurant, jazz is the music of choice. Some of Indy’s finest jazz musicians perform there to delighted, pasta-happy audiences. The fine arts are also well represented on the walls of this elegant restaurant, where rotating exhibits give Indianapolis artists a great opportunity to be viewed.
