We ordered take out pizza that was good...wished they delivered to the hotel. The white broccoli was very good.

The white broccoli is a classic! Apologies that we couldn't deliver to the hotel, though -- we understand that would be frustrating, so thank you for working with us there. Safe travels, and we hope to see you again soon! Best, The Illiano's Grill Family More

My family and I went out for pizza and fries the other day. The food was good. We sat by the river and then played on the playscape after the meal. Very nice time!

They have actually expanded into 4 area restaurants that range from fine dining to mainly take out. The menu ranges from delicious Italian baked dishes like Lasagna to Pollo Marsala and Monte Bianco. The Meat Lovers Stuffed Pizza is a true classic, that rivals any Stuffed Pizza on the East coast.

On our way back home from the Leffingwell House, we stopped by for a quick lunch. We had an excellent variety of choices, each fresh with good sized portions and reasonably priced. The server was friendly and prompt and even shared another place close by for us to visit. Great place for vegetarians as well.

After seeing Illinoi's Grill rated #2 on TA in Norwich, we were looking forward to a real good meal as Trip Advisor has never let us down.

I have eaten in three different Illiano Restaurants; New London, Norwich and East Lyme. This pizza can only be considered fair. New London County has much better pizza restaurants that are more consistent on quality. On our last trip the waitress dropped our pizza just before she reached the table. After another long wait we were served a pizza with... More

We ordered pizzas and a large salad for a work lunch. Especially delicious! The large salad had roasted red peppers and olives which were a tasty addition to the standard free ingredients. The fresh motz cheese with basil was the best I've ever had. Nice thin crust.

Illianos has a brisk take-out business, mostly for traditional pizza fare. The inside dining room and outside patio area are great for traditional italian food. The salad and bread are great starters for their delicious entrees. There are plenty of fish and seafood options on the menu, along with the regular italian staples.

Description
Welcome to Illiano's Grill located in Yantic Connecticut. We have been serving up authentic southern Italian cuisine since we first opened our doors in 1997. We pride ourselves in using the best ingredients, whether it is high quality mozzarella to top our thin crust brick oven pizzas or fresh seafood to make our customer favorites like flounder Florentine. We know the importance of fresh foods and promise to never compromise. Illiano's Grill also offers a full catering menu. For your next event, sit back, relax, and leave the cooking to the pros. Available for Take Out and for on-site private parties and special events. If you are looking for a comfortable relaxed setting to have dinner out, look no further than our dining room. The hand painted pictures by Paul Illiano hanging on the walls and Italian music in the background will be sure to have you feeling like part of our family before the appetizers arrive. All of our dishes are made to order and our menu is sure to please everyone in the family, from pizza to pasta, fresh salads and soups to gourmet Italian classics.
