NEW!! I’ve been to several events at this restaurant and had my baby shower there yesterday. Everyone raved about what great food and how nice everything was! I’m so happy and I have some pretty wonderful memories to last a lifetime. Everything went off without a hitch, the staff were impeccable and attentive. The day was absolutely perfect! I would do more events here for sure!!!

We just want to THANK YOU to you and your amazing staff. The food was awesome and served extremely efficient yet we did not feel rushed. The dinning room was elegant, the service second to none. You served 56 in just one hour, amazing! We had a great experience! Dorothy, your management, wait staff and chef’s made this best dining experience we have had as a traveling group of Seniors.

We had my bridal shower here and the staff, the food and the ambiance was everything I could have asked for but even more than that. They helped make my day so special and Judy and Christina went over the top in making sure we had ever accommodation we needed. Ilio’s was the first place I thought of when it came to holding my shower and will be the first place I recommend every time I go in. Whether it’s a formal celebration or my family and I stopping in for dinner I leave every single time thinking it was better than the last and for someone who has worked in the restaurant industry over 12 years it speaks volumes to the service and the standard they set in taking care of every customer who walks through the door!

We had our wedding reception here 5 years ago today, along with other events with our family. Service is always top notch. We come back every year on or right before our anniversary to celebrate! We had an amazing dinner last night, food never disappoints us.

Recently had our monthly SPHS’60 lunch at Ilio’s – we had a private room for about 40 people – we all enjoyed the soup – salad and entree buffet – three soups were delicious – the mixed greens and toppings for the salad were very good – cheese and crackers and garlic bread went along perfectly with our soup and salad – the hot entree was delicious – every one was pleased with their choice and some tried all soups and were not disappointed. the price was right – and everyone had a wonderful delicious time – know we will be back again and again.

I just had my wedding reception here on May 20th. Bravo DiPaolo’s! You lived up to every single expectation we had! Which was not an easy task If you are looking into reception places do yourself a favor and check out the packages they offer. You’re not gonna find better. The family makes you a priority. The staff is fabulous and attentive. The food is delicious and bountiful. Ilio, spot on with the signature cocktails! Dennis and family, from the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!!!

DiPaolo Family & Staff – Thank you for providing us with years of wonderful family dinners. Your family has always been warm & gracious hosts, going above & beyond our expectations, with the up-most professionalism. Every meal here makes you feel as if they were at Grandma’s house for Sunday dinner!
We had wonderful time here on Sunday for our son, Adam’s 1st Communion Party. As always, your staff did an exceptional job taking care of our needs, even thought there were multiple parties going on. Thank you, Karen, for taking such good care of us and really going above and beyond to make Adam’s day so special.

Warm and cozy atmosphere… 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.

Had an amazing time at Ilio’s for my son’s banquet last night. The food was so good & the staff were right on point with everything… I actually go there just to get the meatballs & bring them home cause they’re so yummy… I live right down the street & loved it last evening. I didn’t expect anything that was done. Love Ilio’s &p lease don’t stop I can’t wait to go back. Thank you all for your kindness & putting together such an amazing evening.. Thank you.

I had my bridal shower here yesterday and it was amazing! The staff was wonderful and so helpful and accommodating throughout the entire process! I couldn’t imagine a better experience! My family also has Psalm Sunday here every year and it also is always wonderful! I’ve never had a bad experience with this establishment and I would recommend them over and over to anyone looking to host an event here or to just have dinner! I love Ilio’s!!

Just a short note of appreciation to the entire staff of Ilio’s to Thank You for the wonderful dinner you provided for the retirement dinner for Kenny Taylor. Everyone raved about the atmosphere and food. And a special Thank You to Dennis for his kind words. You made quite an impression with everyone on the strength of customer service and relationships. Well Done! Special Thanks to Dorothy in the Banquet office as from my first contact thru our event everything was handled most professional. The teams of Ecolab Erie and Buffalo extend our hands of gratitude.

Thank You All –
This is just wonderful to go. They have the best banquets, take out, catering and dinners to eat at the restaurant.
I have been to Ilio’s too many times to count. All the employees are excellent and make you feel special. That includes all services mentioned. Give Ilio’s a try for retirement parties, weddings, sport banquets and if you need advice or questions just call or stop in to find out your needs.
Paul Pascucci via Facebook, December 12, 2016
Thank You All –

There were no surprises. I can’t say thank you enough.

Dear Dennis (and the entire staff at Ilio’s) –
Thank you so much for your outstanding service! Nothing can compare to the family atmosphere at
Ilio’s – we always feel right at home!! The staff did a spectacular job for my son’s recent birthday
celebration and our Mary Kay special event still has the attendees calling us with complements
on the food and service. We are truly blessed to have Ilio’s in the community!

50th Anniversary Celebration. We had a small family celebration here, making reservations only 3 days in advance. We were impressed with their presentation, exemplary service and excellent food. With 23 in attendance we had a private room, and limited menu we requested & chose in advance. I cannot say enough about the delicious food. Everyone raved about it… there were absolutely no complaints about anything, food, service, ambiance…it was above and beyond my expectations. A+++! THANK YOU!

Dear Norma Jean: Thank you for everything you and the staff did to make Chelsea and Garret’s wedding so special. When we walked into the banquet room, we were blown away! All the food was absolutely delicious and the service was excellent. Chelsea and Garret specifically were appreciative of the food and that Dennis came to congratulate them! Thanks for making their day special.
Gratefully, Sal and Christine S. March 2015
Dennis: What a wonderful dinner and class AAA service last night. The menu was incredible. The cheese display was unbelievable, as were the passed hors d’oeuvres. The whole evening, with my family and friends was just exceptional. Never to be forgotten – never!! It is amazing, when the culture created by you and your brother is passed down. Your servers and all the help I saw were the best and they were not just going through the motions – they were invested. All of that culture starts at the head. Thank You Dennis.
Regards, George S. February 2015
Thank you for making our anniversary party such a special and beautiful event. Your food was delicious; your staff very attentive, bartender fun and the banquet room was perfect. With much appreciation!
Thank you! The Corbetta’s
Let me compliment you on your food, service and helpfulness. I can’t tell you how nice our visit was. Not a single complaint from anyone. In a group of this size that is quite a feat. In fact, I had many compliments and positives. Please accept my thanks for all you did for my group. It made me look good and certainly made my day go better.
Sincerely, Marianne H., Woman’s Club of Erie
Kudos to you and your wonderful family and staff! My family and friends enjoyed a wonderful dinner from Ilio’s on Saturday for my son’s First Communion. From the incredible customer service all the way to today’s follow up call from Marilyn your group did not miss a beat!
Amy Conmy, Dival Safety
Thank you for all you did to make our reunion so special. AGAIN – this year. We have had nine years of continuous reunions – and you have been a great part of the reason that Ilio’s is our favorite place.
Sincerely, With Love & Admiration! Marianne L., Bishop Quigley Luncheon
Everyone had such a wonderful time and just raved about how good the food was. It was a very special day for our family and, of course, where would we spend it but “Ilio’s”!
Regards, Eddie & Irene L.
“Comments: I’ve been going to Ilio DiPaolo’s for over 40 years now and remember every meal I’ve had there. They have always been delicious, hearty and my favorite “warm cozy” meals! Favorite memories are Ilio’s hands, Dennis smiling at my 5 year old and being the only person that could leave her speechless, Mom and Dad taking us for Friday Fish Fry’s, the Caesar dressing left in the bottom of the bowl being sopped up by a piece of fresh Italian bread, gnocchi, calamari, Blue nun wine, surprises visits, my daughters favorite “mystery trips” and the sign at the door stating, “if you Loved us tell someone else, if you didn’t…tell us”. Gosh, I’m hungry now, better call for reservations this weekend! Even though I live 50 miles away I make the trip just to add another fond memory as much as possible!”
