I met a friend for dinner at Illiano's Grill, which is part pizza kitchen and part Italian restaurant. The restaurant didn't disappoint: delicious Italian food and great service. While I was waiting, the staff brought me water and some tasty bread with dipping sauce (extra virgin olive oil also on the table). We were served a dinner salad with our... More

We sat in the dining room, which was loud and bustling. Reminds me of the hospitable old school Italian places, mural included. The booths and tables are a little worse for wear, but it's clean and charming. Service was excellent, immediately we were poured waters and brought hot fresh Foccacia with sauce and a sample slice of the Sicilian. All... More

The people working there were friendly, the place it's self was a tad dated but we weren't concerned at all. I ordered the Sea food pasta and my wife ordered pasta with clams. We both noticed both meals tasted very salty. We made it through most of the meal but they proved too salty to finish. We didn't have the... More

My sister lives in the neighborhood, and when ever we visit we stop by for some Illiano's pizza. The food is fresh and good.

Very reasonable prices. We happened to go on a night when they were offering a free bottle of wine with your meal....a real bargain. Food was very good.

I like the way they make their pizza. It is closer to New York style with thin crust and a taco pizza which my teenager loved. A little overpriced but what you get is delicious! They give a tiny piece of pizza while you wait. Yumm

The young waitress was cheery and friendly. I ordered the minestrone soup and the sausage parmigiana sandwich. The soup was beyond great. It was homemade and had fresh vegetables. This was the best minestrone soup I ever had. The sausage parm sandwich was enormous. Chunks of delicious sausage with melted cheese and red sauce on a fresh Italian roll. All... More

We happened by because we were staying across the street and what a great stroke of luck for us! Small place, friendly greeting, quick seating and oh, the wonderful aromas. The pasta dishes going by looked great, really enjoyed one of their entree salads. The portions were very generous, nice wine selection for the menu. Good service and reasonable prices.

Very good pizza and pasta. I'm especially fond of the linguini with clam sauce. Rigatoni vodka outstanding too. Very large portions.

I love this place. The food is always good. Love their pizzas, salads, and grinders. The wait staff could be a little friendlier but I still go cause the food is really good.
