Best Thin crust pizza in the area

Illiano's has a good selection of pizzas both by the slice and whole pies. The pizza's are very good and I would call them New York style but they also have deep dish pizzas, garlic bread, and stuffed pizzas. They are great for take out (fast, efficient and the price is right). The restaurant... read more

Illiano's has been around for about 15 years and is still growing strong. A local favorite with a strong pizza to go business Illanio's smells sooooo good when approaching it. They have some tables but take out is the wayto go. The "dining room" is part of the area where the take out business does its thing. The pizza crustis... More

I'm pretty skeptical about restaurants. I do lots of research and hate, hate , hate chain restaurants. Driving home with the girlfriends and we were looking for a place to eat. This restaurant came up on the gps so we thought we would try it. The restaurant was fantastic. We had a little of everything. The cook had us try... More

Everyone loves the pizza here, as the busy take out business proves. I think the pasta is the little known treat though. Very generous portions of seafood pasta that rivals much more expensive restaurants is what brings me here.

Ordered the stromboli to go which we have had there several times. So much smaller and not much filling and therefore not much flavor. We will keep going for the pizza which is always so good but not wasting our money on the strombolis. Disappointing.

In my opinion, their Pizza is the best around. Their service is very friendly, and they are generous to the local community. What more could anyone ask for.

I usually like Illiano's pizza but have found that both the quality of the food and the quality of the service is very inconsistent. There is better pizza in the area with much better service. I do not like going to a restaurant where the wait staff gives me the attitude that they are doing me a favor by letting... More

I have eaten at Illiano's in Niantic,Connecticut many times. The food is always very good. The pizza is always hot with generous amount of toppings. The wait staff has always been good. No complaints at all. I would recommend Illiano's to anyone looking for good pizza.

Good pizza, complementary slice while you wait , decent grinders and prices. Decor could use a freshening , service is fast and friendly. Not the best pizza, but quite good, for this pizza snob!
