____________________________

NEW!!  Ilio DiPaolo’s is an outstanding family restaurant that makes everyone who goes there feel like family. Excellent food and service. If you’ve never been, do yourself a favor — you’ll be glad you did.
Kurt Beyer via Facebook, May 1, 2018

NEW!!  The best Italian food outside of my Grandmother’s kitchen. Everything is made with the best home-made care you would want for your family. The staff is friendly and very accommodating. Dennis (and his family) are carrying on the tradition of his father Ilio with pride and expertise. The banquets here are classy and of course the food is great. Parking is right next to the door and the staff is very helpful. Oh did I say the food is great?

NEW!!  This restaurant is fine dining mixed with a meal with family . We have been coming here for years. If you are not happy with a meal here, you are not happy anywhere. They are one the first places to offer gluten-free options. We have tried most of the menu options but I keep coming back for the best prime rib that I ever had. Yet, I love all the pasta options too. Service is always 5 star. The owner is friendly and makes it a point to be sure everyone is pleased with their food and service. When you go, reservations are a good plan. No matter what night you decide to go, it is always packed. Even without reservations, they make every effort to accommodate you. With so many great restaurants in the area, we continually go back here because we know we will never get a bad meal.

NEW!!  There is none better in WNY. Family owned and operated and they carry on the tradition that their Father started back in the 60’s, and that is to offer great food in a relaxing atmosphere. Provide great service, and treat everyone they serve like Family. Full marks on all accounts. Every family member and friend I know from near and far I have brought to Ilio’s and they all have enjoyed this truly great dining experience and have gone back time after time on their own. Great job by all!!

NEW!!  It’s probably pretty close to 45 years that I have been eating some of the best food of my life at Ilio’s. Everything I’ve ever eaten from the steaks, to seafood, to Italian is delicious. The service always is the best, and believe me it doesn’t matter if it’s busy. Because it’s always busy, people have known for years, you want good food and service you go to Ilio DiPaolo’s Restaurant!!!.

The food was amazing and even with a small party I had a great menu to choose from, a nice well decorated private room and personalized service. My party of 20 was treated just like it were a party of 200. I will be having all our future parties here. Well organized and professional friendly service with delicious food.

NEW!!  My son treated myself and his brother to dinner this evening at your restaurant. I had been there before for showers but, never for dinner. Every shower I had attended was amazing and was looking forward to going for dinner and was NOT disappointed. Our waitress, Amanda was very friendly, on top of everything, very knowledgeable about the items on the menu and went above and beyond to make our visit one to remember.
The boys had ordered “The Wrestler” and myself, the 14 oz. steak…….. UNBELIEVABLY AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! Hands down, the most enjoyable meal we have EVER had. Thank you Mr. DiPaolo for taking the time to personally come over and introduce yourself, also for the sauce. We will DEFINITELY be back and spread the word of our incredible experience and amazing meals.

NEW!!  Last year we visited Ilio DiPaolo’s because we had gift certificates given to us by an advertising company. The gift certificates had expired but the manager allowed us to still use them. Since then we have visited here over a half dozen times and have had great food and great service. We would highly recommend visiting this restaurant. We love the fresh bread and dipping oil and I love my prime rib and they are the only restaurant that serves the Au Jus with its own warmer.

Being from a city known for its food, Seattle, I must say that Ilio DiPaolo’s restaurant has the best Italian food I have ever had. The service exceeded all expectations and this is literally “a home away from home”. The food is absolutely amazing but what makes it even more wonderful is the family friendly environment. When you come here, you will not want to leave. You may walk in hungry but you leave full of delicious food, laughter and love. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a 5 star meal.

Had a terrific anniversary dinner at Ilio DiPaolo’s last Saturday night. Waited a bit for our table as the place was packed. Dishes gnocchi veal parmigana and angel hair pasta meat sauce & meatball were excellent! Special soup of the night sausage minestrone was outstanding served hot, which is a must! Also, The St Francis wine was excellent! Lastly, the bread and special dipping oil mix was to die for! Portions were too big to finish but that makes for a great doggie bag! Thanks for stopping by Dennis, this needs to be a regular stop for everyone as the value is outstanding!

My daughter and I go every Friday for dinner. We love it there. Best Fish Fry and my daughter loves the chicken parm . The waitresses are the best they make you feel like family there. We never have to wait long to be seated and the service is great. The hostesses at the door are friendly and always remember who we are . Best place to have a dinner out.
Theresa Troy via Facebook, February 1, 2018

Great food. We unknowingly went on prime rib special Thursdays with the intention to get spaghetti and the lasagna. Which we ordered. The sauce tasted and looked up perfect for such a renown place. I put its quality above Salvatore’s to be honest. My wife loved the lasagna so much she wouldn’t share, but instead took the left overs for lunch. We promised ourselves to come back in a week or two try the prime rib.

Never disappointed when we go here. I ate my 1st meal here about 45 years ago 😬. Took all our kids here many times & now we are bringing the grandchildren!!! When we arrived last night the wait time was about 45 min. – I said fine & informed the hostess we were a party of 4 & she saw we had our young grand daughters with us & offered us the table in the bar – which we could have right away. That worked out perfect for us – they didn’t have to be quiet & they loved all the activity. I can’t thank her enough!!! Service was great, kids loved their food & “kiddy” cocktails! WNY has many new restaurants & we love having so many options BUT there are times when you can’t beat the comfort of a place that holds so many memories & feels like home 😘

I remember going to eat here when I was a little girl and the famous wrestler Ilio himself would personally visit every table. His son, Dennis, carries on the tradition. It’s a superb local business to support with top-notch staff. The ambiance is suitable for special occasions (we’ve done anniversaries, birthdays, bridal showers, and baby showers here!) We enjoy the outdoor courtyard as soon as the weather warms up. My dad and I have dinner at Ilio’s almost weekly, we love it so much. The calamari is out of this world. Our other go-to dishes are the Calabrese Platter (filet mignon with tortellini alfredo) and the Chicken Parrinello — washed down with a glass of Montepuciano, of course! The food is so much better than Italian places like Salvatore’s for a fraction of the price.

We had a memorial brunch at Ilio DiPaolo’s. The space was perfect for the amount of guests. The seating arrangement was comfortable and the facility is very clean. We were provided a nice variety of food that was beautifully displayed buffet style. Now let’s talk about the taste of the food, the food was incredible. The chicken abruzzi melted in your mouth; the pork was so tender you didn’t need a knife to cut it. I can’t wait to return to Buffalo for the chicken abruzzi. The staff was very attentive to replenish the food as needed. Speaking of the staff..the staff was courteous, attentive and compassionate. Our family was impressed that the owner went to each table to ensure that everything was perfect. If you are looking for a reasonably priced facility with great food and awesome customer service for your event look no further Ilio DiPaolo’s is the place to go. Thank you to Caitlin Brodfuehrer for recommending this great place.
Susan Wesolowski via Facebook, December 11, 2017

We had reservations for dinner on Sunday, and we planned poorly, arriving far too early. We couldn’t have been treated better! We were seated promptly and treated wonderfully. We were prepared to wait if necessary, but were fortunate. A great dinner, our waitress was lively and energetic, kind beyond necessary. Dennis stopped by as he often does, and once again a fine evening. We don’t get there as often as we should (home is about 45 minutes away), but it is always a good experience. Thanks folks!

When was the last time you were one of a party of ten where everyone was happy with everything they were served? We visited a while back, when the courtyard was still open, to have dinner, listen to live music and take advantage of the $10 off any $25 or more bottle of wine special. Our server Jessica was just great – attentive, knowledgeable, and never once had to ask who ordered what. (I HATE that. Servers, it’s your JOB to remember such things. Why is good service so rare these days?)
Our group’s orders were all over the menu. Prime rib, seafood, pasta, antipasto, filet, and everything was delicious. Matt’s Muddled Manhattan – SO GOOD. HUGE wine list. Highly recommended.
