After we go to Kidcity Museum we always stop at Illianos Pizza Middletown. This is a very casual Middletown pizza place with incredible pizza. When you walk in you face the counter with a bunch of pizzas that are used for individual slices. You can place your order there, or walk to the left where there are about 10 booths. The pizza is thin crust and not at all greasy. Some of our favorite specialties are the Buffalo Chicken Pizza which is not too spicy and the Chicken Florentine. The soda comes by the bottle and they usually bring a slice around of a sample variety before your pizza comes. PROS: Excellent pizza and casual atmosphere-perfect for lunch with the kids. CONS: It's too far from my house!"
"I wasn't even in the door with my son, and already my wife and daughter were dining on the free mini pizzla slices Illiano's placed on the table. We didn't plan on being here, as we were traveling from Essex, CT back to Mass after riding the steam train. We just let the GPS tell us where the nearest pizza place was, and it chose this gem of a place! The pizza (we had sausage & onion) is excellent! Thin crust neapolitan pizza with fantastic flavor. The servers were very good too - attentive, and very helpful - we had 3 servers checking our drinks and clearing plates, wrapping leftovers, etc. Give 'em a try if you're in the area - I'm sure you won't be disappointed!"

"Hardly a week ever goes by without our visiting Illiano's Pizza Middletown. I am addicted to their Caprese Salad. Large slices of tomato topped with fresh mozzarella and drizzled with olive oil. In the center there are marinated sweet peppers. Add a few slices of their to die for bread or a garlic knot and it makes a perfect meal. All of their salads are great and their slices are huge and delicious. I like thin crust and my husband likes thick, we both get satisfied here. Their buffalo chicken pizza particularly good as is the margarita pizza. We often have the calamari here and it is a huge plate certainly enough for two to share. Good too!! The staff are all very friendly and they start you off with a little sample piece of pizza even if you are just waiting for take out. How fun is that?"
