We always do take out, so I can't speak for the dining in experience, but the food, especially the pizza is great. The have a lot of varieties. They often run specials, The staff is friendly and always offers a small slice to everyone who it waiting. Their Garlic knots are also really good.

Illiano's is one of my favorite spots for take out. I love their grinders...Philly Cheese and cheeseburger are really great toasted and you can get the roll seeded or plain ( I like the seeds). The servers are friendly, service is fast and always good AND you get a sample mini-slice of their delicious pizza while you wait for your... More

This was the dirtiest restaurant I can ever remember being in. Went table to table to table just to find one that was halfway clean. Many torn booth seats, too. The salt and pepper shakers and condiments were disgusting. The silverware was dirty. There is a weird rubberized covering on each table. The food was terrible. No free refills on... More

Stopped in for a late Friday evening dinner (9:00pm). Restaurant was full and busy. My wife ordered grilled scallop salad and I ordered lasagna. Her salad was an adequate serving of bay scallops that were grilled to a rubber like condition. My lasagna was about an 1 1/2 " thick with mostly ricotta cheese, hardly any meat and smothered in...

The menu was pretty standard Italian fare, but it's obvious they pay attention to their ingredients. I would like to rate this above "Average" but I'm not sure that "Very Good" would be totally accurate. The ambiance of the restaurant in ok, but not too fancy. I had the eggplant rollatini and it was delicious (and enough to split for... More
