There are a few Illiano's Grills sprinkled throughout eastern CT. All are fine family places to eat. They all give out pizza samples while you wait. Their pastas are served with any sauce you can imagine. The fish is fried with a thick coat to guard against it getting a chill. Some locations have... read more

Usually go in for a slice of pizza or take out pizza, but pasta dishes are great too. Pizza is thin crust and has that great chew to the crust, which I love. Blue cheese pizza (with ricotta cheese) is my favorite. Perfect balance of mild ricotta and strong blue cheese. Great crust!!

Always a solid food experience be it just for pizza or a full meal. The pasta based dishes are very good.

I have been visiting Illiano's Grill for over 13 years. The food has been consistently outstanding and value has always been excellent. Vincenzo always greets his customers with a smile and a welcoming "Come Stai? The menu is large and varied and the daily specials are always outstanding. The wine list is limited and the ambiance is not black tie.... More

We have been here a few times. The staff is always friendly and the food is always good. For takeout or dine in I would recommend this place for sure. Pizza is very good. As is anything else I have had.

Illiano's consistently serves great food. Whether it is a pizza, grinder, or a main dish, the food is quality and served appropriately hot and cold. The Chicken Marsala there is my favorite over Angel Hair. Friendly staff, good service (I don't have to ask for a drink refill they bring it or ask), and daily creative specials. Can't miss going...

The seating is kind of claustrobic, but the thin crust pizza that I had more than made up for the atmosphere. Crisp crust, flavorful toppings and speedy service made our visit a real treat!

If you find this helpful please click helpful below. This is a small 1/2 take out pizza joint, 1/2 sit down Italian restaurant. The pizza selections appear to be by the slice or whole. They looked good! I was eating in the restaurant and have been twice. The menu and decor is outdated and the place is not upscale but... More

My girlfriend I visited here while in town for the night. We opted to try this place because it had gluten free options available which is a necessity for her. Upon our arrival I was a little concerned we were at the wrong place, looked like take out only. However, there is seating to the left as you enter. The... More
