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!

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.

Recommended as a very good Italian restaurant. Our meal was less than satisfactory. Soup was reheated in Microwave, White sauce on veal chicken was watery and not cooked properly. Coffee was burnt. It is a Pizza place, which we should have stuck to something a little more simple.

After reading these reviews, I wish I had ordered pizza when I went to this restaurant for the first time today. Our waitress was excellent and very attentive, but we were in there for what seemed like forever because of a kitchen hold up. As an appetizer we shared the calamari, which unfortunately favored quantity over quality- way too much... More
