“Busy Saturday Night but good Chicken Roll”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

Most people come to Illianos for the pizza but we enjoy the Chick Roll. It has peppers and onions and comes with red sauce. The challenge is that the chicken roll takes a long time to get. Knowing this, we started with a tossed salad. This time our salads were watery.

We came in around 6:30 when things were jumping. This meant a bit of a wait for a booth that hadn't been cleaned well. The floors were slick as well. I think they could have used another waitress to help keep things moving better.

But we'll return again another day for some good food.

“Friendly Place with good pizza.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

If you are looking for non-Greek style pizza in the Waterford area, I would certainly recommend Illiano's. It's a chain of sorts, but the place doesn't feel at all chain-like (which is a good thing in my opinion.) The order-taker/cashier was authentic Italian, and sweet as can be, with a quick humor. The pizza was good, the sauce a bit sweet but some really like that. The sausage was thin sliced like pepperoni and quite delicious. We ate take-out, but the restaurant seemed adequate - very small but plenty of wait staff. The website doesn't tell you this but they do have a small list of beers that they serve (no craft beers). Overall, well worth the trip and we would go back when we are down that way.

“Very good, but for some...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2008

Very good, but for some reason it's not my first choice in the area. Great place to go for a slice - always fresh, tossed into the brick oven to get hot and crispy.
