Went to Iaria's on 10/20 for the first time with some friends. We parked in their lot about 40ft away from the restaurant (directly in front of the entrance) and walked in at about 6:50pm. The service of the wait staff was fine - mediocre, nothing to rave about. The food was good and we really enjoyed the authentic Italian dishes which were served. We paid our bill and went on our way out to the parking lot. By this time it was 8:05pm when we walked out. Unfortunately, my vehicle had been broken into with the rear passenger window smashed out. My work/personal laptop bag was stolen along with everything inside of it. I immediately contacted the authorities and went back inside the restaurant to inform the employees of what happened. The manager on duty mentioned that they have had a rash of larceny's happen in the past month to customers vehicles in their parking lot. I couldn't help but notice broken glass in a few other parking spots close to where my vehicle was parked. Long story short; why did I give the restaurant a 1 star review? It appears that a rash of burglaries is happening at this establishment and the restaurant has not done anything to help keep their customers vehicles and possessions safe. My recommendation is for the restaurant to install a camera system to help deter potential thieves and to also give their customers peace of mind when dining at their establishment. I (along with my friends which were present), will not be coming back until the restaurant takes appropriate action to increase security on their premises.

Attentive wait staff. The fettuccine with clam sauce was top notch. Calamari was also really good, as was the fried mozzarella. We got there really early thinking we could enjoy libations in the bar. Absolutely no room for us. So get there on time.

I don't really understand the hype behind Iara. They have only a limited selection of pasta varieties (penne, cannelloni, fettuccine, lasagna, and one or two more). While the quality is definitely greatly superior to other so-called Italian restaurants in Indianapolis (and America in general), the recipes are definitely Italian-American, and the pasta dough could use some improvement. My drink took forever to come out, but the waiter was friendly.

Lunch there 3/25/15. Paid for check with debit card. Left $10 cash tip. Checked bank acct next day and somebody had added a $6 tip to the card transaction after I left. Not good for business to be doing this and I consider it to be called stealing. Would like to think that person doing this was discharged.

I took my daughter to Iaria's for dinner as I had moved away and it had been several years since I had eaten at the restaurant. I remember it being good food -- but not much atmosphere. We decided to dine outside, which was nice. The experience started out fine. Our waitress got our drinks and took our order. We promptly received our appetizer, salads and soup. That's where the good service ended. It took quite awhile to receive our entrees, and once we got our dinners, it was some time before the server checked back for drinks, etc. We finished our meal and waited, and waited for our waitress to give us our check. In the meantime, the bus person took our unfinished entrees and boxed them for us. To my surprise today when I opened my take-out container, I had someone else's dinner. Not sure how that happened, but I wasn't happy that the remainder of my 15.99 manicoti with meatballs was not in my container. I'm hopeful that this was just a bad night for this particular server and the restaurant.
