Good Pizza Some Times

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... read more

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 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!

We live in Massachusetts, but we first discovered Illiano's about 20 years ago when my husband was in the Army Reserves at his two week training camp, and his friend took him there. My sister lives in NJ, and several times a year we make the trip across Connecticut (on route 95) to visit. It is always worth the stop... More

Every Friday friends and I gather at Illiano's for food and good conversation. The staff is friendly and give a warm welcome. The food is average and typical Italian fare. The service is inconsistent from week to week. A friend in the group ordered first and received his meal last. But if you're with a group, Illliano's provides great garlic... More

Dropped in and grabbed a couple slices of pizza to take back to the hotel. Great staff. Welcoming. Offered the sample slice of pizza while I waited. Many options of pre-made pizzas which they quickly heat for you. It was very good. Will return. Recommended.

East Lyme/Niantic's pizza is the world's greatest! I was raised there. Nothing is better than their meatball pizza. It's pricey, but totally worth it.
