Voted No. 2 Upstate NY's BEST Italian Restaurant by www.nyup.com

Ilio DiPaolo's serves "red sauce that will make you smile," judge Teri Weaver said. The restaurant was founded by Ilio DiPaolo, a wrestler now in three sports halls of fame. If there were an Eggplant Parmigiana hall of fame (and there should be) Ilio DiPaolo's dish would be there, too. Overall, Ilio DiPaolo's was outstanding. The service, atmosphere and food was impressive and we can't wait to return.
