Dear Ilio’s Staff,
My husband & I would like to thank you for the incredible job you
all did at our August 22nd Wedding at the Woodlawn Lodge. The room
decor & setup was absolutely beautiful and the food and service
was impeccable. Fantastic job and a very special extra thank you to
both Dorothy and head server, Theresa – WOW!! Thanks again,

This letter is to compliment your staff at Ilio DiPaolo’s. First and
foremost, I want to recognize Dorothy for being the absolute BEST
organizer I have ever experienced. My husband, (finance at the time)
told me about the Woodlawn Beach Lodge and who would cater it. I was
a little skeptical at first, but agreed blindly to have our wedding
at this location. You see I was living in Texas at the time.
On the day before my wedding, upon the arrival at the lodge, again,
fear took over because everything was bare. Once the tables were moved
and dressed, it was so elegant. My time was pressed, since I had to
decorate my own cake and arrived just in time for the wedding, so I
had no time to offer my suggestions or directions. To my amazement,
the place was like a Cinderella story. The food was exquisite and the
service was phenomenal. Oh my goodness, the portions… were incredible.
You guys really made my fairy tale dream come true. Thank you so much…
my hats off to the owner, management, the chef and service techs. They
made everyone feel so comfortable and I am recommending your facility
to everyone who is asking. Thanks again for the everlasting memories
I will always treasure.
