Illia's Greek may be the best in Venice

Tucked away in the corner of a small strip mall. Authentic Greek food - top notch. Service is friendly and you will return for more!

The place was dingy and old, and the staff cold and uncaring. The food was OK, but the whole experience was uninspiring. I have no desire to return, even though I really like Greek food.

Authenic and fresh food. Don't know how I've missed this place for so many years. Family introduced me to it, and word of mouth is important, spread the word

Ilia's is a small restaurant tucked away in a strip mall. Staff seemed to consist of the owner/cook, his wife, and a family member. The atmosphere is a little dated and dreary, but the food makes up for that. We had the roasted eggplant and spanakopita appetizers and both were well-prepared and flavorful. The oven roasted potatoes were excellent. We... More

I visited on a Monday evening because I wanted to see what the food tasted like on a slow night. Since I maintain the two primary reasons for eating out are the food and the service, let's start with the food. It was exceptionally good and tatsy. I had the moussaka which I thoroughly enjoyed and the bechamel sauce was... More

My wife decided that she would like to try some Greek food so we went to tripadvisor webpage for a quick analysis of the local restaurants. We picked Illia's Greek Restaurant since it was close and the reviews were mostly good. I rarely eat Greek food so I do not consider myself a Greek cuisine expert. My wife ordered a... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant and the food. Having lived in Greece for 12 years and worked for a Greek company for 41 years, this was a welcome find. We had moussaka and lamb shank and the wine was great. How any reviewer could find this expensive, I really don't know . The owner is from Greece and customers walking out... More

Tucked away in a strip shopping center, this restaurant is always good. My husband and I eat here in average of once every month, and we've never been disappointed. Tonight I had the Greek Country Chicken which was incredibly flavorful and my husband had an excellent lamb shank. The atmosphere is relaxing and service always very good.
