Heading home from New Jersey, we stopped in Waterford for lunch. We checked the Garmin for restaurants and decided on Illiano's. It proved to be a great choice. Ordering was done at a walk-up counter and brought to the table by a server who also took beverage orders. I ordered a slice of White Broccoli that had ricotta, broccoli, and... More

Love the sauce and thin crust of Illiano's pizza! They are usually generous with their toppings, although not always evenly spread out over the pie. Their hot grinders are also excellent. Where else can you get a free sample slice?

Pulling up in the parking lot at the front of the restaurant, I wasn't too sure I was going to enjoy my meal....but I was pleasantly surprised! Inside it was such a relaxed atmosphere. Diners tucking into their meals, too busy to notice me coming in to check out what they were so eagerly hoovering up with the mouths! I... More

Food was as good as we remembered from the sample slice of pizza when we arrived to the last bite of the cheeseburger grinder. Don't pass this one by. Bring Illianos to Maine!

Ate late with my nephew on a Thursday night right before closing. Even though it was late the waitress was welcoming. Soon as we sat down we were given two complimentary small slices of pizza to welcome us to Illiano's. Nephew had buffalo wings and I had a slice of chicken pizza. Both were really good. Service was excellent. Even... More

They have so many types of pizza, and you get a free slice when you get there. Friendly service, short wait times, all in all a good place.

I have eaten ate Illianos for over 15 years. I am fond of their New York style pizza. Over the course of my dining experience I have always gotten a consistently good pizza. They may have different cooks but the pizza has maintained the same excellent quality for over 15 years.

Stopped and bought a large "special" pizza to go to munch on during the week and it was incredible. We have some good local pizza places down in Virginia, but it's a totally different story up here at Illiano's. The toppings are top-notch and the crust is just plain better. Might take one home...
