While on business in Southern Indianapolis, I stumbled on this place driving around the area looking for someplace different to eat. Jackpot! If you like Italian food, this place is a ""must try!"" The restaurant is on the end of a strip plaza. It is tastefully decorated inside, yet comfortable. The menu is not overly extensive but most of the staples are there with a few unique offerings as well. My waitress Melissa was quick to the table and very helpful. After explaining the different sauces on the menu, she brought a sample of the red sauce with fresh baked Italian crusty bread and butter. The sauce was excellent and a little on the sweet side. Perfect for this reviewer! I decided on the Rigatoni with Meatballs and red Sauce. I also wanted to try the Italian Sausage so Melissa had the chef add some to the dish. I also ordered a cup of the italian Wedding soup to start. the soup was very good, rivalling the Wedding soup I have had in more Italian influenced areas of the country. I would order this again. The Rigatoni with meatballs and sausage came out baked with Mozz/Prov/Parm cheese blend on top. the portion was large and overall outstanding in taste! the meatballs were very tender and flavorful. the sausage was slightly spicy and equally tasty. There was enough left for a great lunch the next day. \r
I will definitely be back to Augustinos on my next visit. The food and the service were outstanding. And all for under $20.00. I saw shere they offer a Sunday Brunch as well with additional items not on the daily menu. If I lived in Indy....I would be at Augustino's this Sunday!
Pros: Awesome Red Sauce and Meatballs
