Restaurant Dinner Menu

Serving Authentic Italian Food at Ilio DiPaolo’s in Buffalo, New York

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. Also voted: Best Red Sauce & Best Eggplant

Serving Dinner:
Tuesday – Friday at 3:00 PM
