In 1965, Hall of Fame Wrestler, Ilio DiPaolo opened the doors to a Western New York tradition and one of the most popular dining spots in the area. Celebrating 50 years in business, Ilio DiPaolo’s Restaurant continues to delight customers with Old-World Italian recipes, warm family atmosphere and friendly service. Open for lunch or dinner, Ilio’s features authentic Italian favorites topped with our famous House Sauce, grilled to perfection steaks, fresh cut veal and delicious seafood dishes.

We also offer Daily Specials, a Gluten-Free menu and vegetarian options, a Children’s menu and an Express Lunch menu including Soup Bar and Salad Buffet, guaranteed to have you back to work in 30 minutes. Enjoy Happy Hour or a before dinner cocktail in the Ringside Lounge which features an extensive Martini selection and recently updated Wine List.

Dine in the ambience of Tuscany with hand-painted murals of Ilio’s hometown of Introdacqua, Italy and décor that celebrates his pro wrestling career, as well as, stories from the past and celebrity photos. Enjoy summer evenings in the courtyard or gather your friends for a game of bocce in the outdoor court.

The entire menu is also available for Take-Out in the Al Casa Italian Market and events are made special with private banquet facilities for up to 400 people in five beautiful locations. Ilio’s offers catering or drop-off services for home, work and off-site facilities including the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens and the Lodge at Woodlawn Beach.

It’s a family affair at Ilio DiPaolo’s. “We are carrying on my father’s tradition to serve excellent food at reasonable prices and with friendly service,” says son, Dennis who operates the restaurant with brother, Michael, the Executive Chef and graduate of the prestigious Culinary Institute in Hyde Park. The next generation of family members now works in the restaurant along with many staff members who have worked here for more than 25 years.
