Very good pizza and friendly staff. I especially like their practice of giving out a free sample slice when you arrive. There may be better pizza in the area for this who are pizza-philes, but we don't really need to look because we've got good pizza at Illiano's just down the street.

Illianos is a legit, old school (as in pre-1980s) pizza parlor the way those of us who remember. Take out and table service available with booths and fountain soda or beer. We had the thin crust pizza with mozzarella, peppers and onions (yes it is geared toward creating your own - no fancy named "gourmet" items on the menu). The... More

Great food, friendly service! Stopped in here for a grinder and it was one of the best I've ever had.

Being a local to the area I have eaten at Illanos multiple locations. Their pizza is usually always good and that is usually what we get when we go or order out. At this location, I hadn't been in well over 2 years because of such poor service last time my family went. The woman at the register then actually... More

I have eaten at the other venues previously. Enjoyed from pizza,pasta to the salads and soup. This was my second time at the waterford location. We enjoyed the pizza last time. This time I chose the lasagna. Which in fact came out looking like a giant meat pie with slices of pasta in between. I wish I took a photo.... More

We've been frequent visitors to the area for the last 4 years while our son has attended the nearby Coast Guard Academy. A group of his friends recommended Illianos and it has become one of our standard restaurant stops on most visits. Pizza is great and the pasta dishes are too. Reasonable prices and great food, casual atmosphere perfect for... More

Used to love this place. This visit the pizza crust was pasty. Gobs of not the best mozzarella & very oily. Perhaps an off day but not running back.

Was visiting from Wyoming & wow was it good! Had a 1/2 cheese, 1/2 pepperoni pizza. Nice & thin (but not craker crust thin) and greasy-in a good way! Love that they bring you a little slice while you wait. Everyone was nice-good service.

I stopped in at Illianos on my way to Boston for a snack. What I ended up having was a large Greek salad that was loaded with Feta cheese, peppers, onions and olives. I then followed up with a Large sausage pizza and if that wasn't enough I had a Huge fresh filled Cannoli. The girls waiting on the tables... More

Fantastic food--pizza, pasta, garlic knots, dipping sauce, etc. I only ever order cheese pizza w/ garlic topping or rigatoni ala vodka, but I am 100% sure everything else is just as good.
