Wrestling where to go? Ilio DiPaolo knocks out the competition with huge portions, authentic cuisine and appealing ambiance.

The food is overly sauced although potion sizes are generous! Packed in tightly and not room to relax. A rushed atmosphere!More

Ordered calamari appetizer. Pricey, bit tough and not flavorful. Veal/eggplant dish was overpoweringly bitter. Sauce too tomato pasty. Seafood Fischetti was too dry. Olives in it just didn't seem to work. Quantity of entree food was good but disappointed with quality.More

A banquet facility for small and medium sized groups. I was delighted to share a funeral brunch with friends and have the atmosphere of a home. The service was attentive to needs in all areas. Food was delicious. Perfect! Thank you.
