The Pizzi Family
The Pizzi family immigrated to Indianapolis in the mid-1960s chasing the classic "American Dream." While the family had been in the wrought-iron welding business for over 100 years, Giuseppe and Anna Pizzi's son Gino had a dream of opening a restaurant. He did just that, founding Ambrosia in 1979. While Gino has launched other restaurants in the Indianapolis area, the family has always been anchored by his first creation and its place in the vibrant Broad Ripple neighborhood. Since its inception, Ambrosia has always strive to consistently provide the very best quality traditional Italian cuisine, while seeking opportunities to be innovative. As of 2019, the restaurant has been proudly operated by Gino's daughter Anna (named after Gino's mother) and her husband Dan.
