NEW!! When deciding on a caterer for a small wedding of 40-50 family members, we knew we wanted to order from Ilio’s and everyone there was thrilled we did! The team at Ilio’s is very easy and pleasant to work with, the food was delivered on time, hot, and delicious! I highly recommend them! We even order the dinner to go when in a pinch for time with dinner!

NEW!! 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.

Ilio’s was absolutely great. The staff was phenomenal and the food was fantastic. My husband and I had a less traditional wedding, we had our reception right there followed by hours devours and an open bar. The food was enough to basically act like a buffet dinner and the staff was so attentive. It was exactly the vibe my husband and I were looking for for our day.

The staff at Ilio’s was extremely helpful and accommodating, as we planned our Buffalo wedding from the West Coast. Dorothy, in particular, was willing to play around with our menu, as our budget was a big concern for us, and she was very professional (even though I’m sure she was frustrated with us). We chose an unlimited appetizer package, as we opted for a cocktail reception. On the day of our wedding, Ilio’s was just plain awesome — thoughtful, professional — doing everything to make our day amazing. And our guests loved the food, especially the coconut shrimp.
