Begin your Father’s Day meal with Poppers, our special jalapeno peppers stuffed with cream cheese, and some Stuffed Long Hot Peppers, filled with sharp provolone and prosciutto.

Make the occasion special with our Prosciutto Mozzarella, made with fresh imported buffalo mozzarella and a layer of plum tomatoes all wrapped up in prosciutto drizzled with fresh garlic and olive oil. Seafood appetizer options include Fried Calamari served with marinara sauce and Mussels Illiano in either a red or white sauce.
The restaurant also offers family-style appetizers, with any three appetizers from the menu served so that everyone can share!
There are a wide variety of delicious salads you can choose from as well. The Baby Spinach Salad includes fresh spinach covered with goat cheese, roasted red peppers, and olives, all drizzled with lemon and olive oil dressing. You can try the Caprese Salad, made with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, garlic and basil, or the California Salad, topped with strawberries, mango, and caramelized nuts over a spring mix and served with a raspberry vinaigrette.
Illiano Cucina features a wide range of classic pasta dishes. You can choose from a variety of different pastas and sauces, such as Marinara, Primavera, Pompodoro, Romano, Alla Panna (Alfredo), and Bolognese (to name but a few). Other traditional Italian pasta offerings include Sausage & Peppers, Baked Ziti, Lasagna, and Eggplant Parmigiana.
If the man in your family loves shellfish, you can treat him to one of the many shrimp dishes Illiano Cucina offers, such as Scampi, Parmigiana, or Francese. A local favorite is the Shrimp Sinatra, made with fresh tomatoes, onions, zucchini and lobster meat covered with wine sauce and a touch of cream.
Pollo O Vitello
If your dad likes chicken or veal, make his dinner special and try the Monterossa, featuring chicken or veal topped with spinach and sun-dried tomatoes, covered with Mozzarella cheese, and served with pink brandy cream sauce. Go for the Lucia if you want to add a little touch of the sea to your meal. It is prepared with fresh cherry tomatoes, jumbo lump crabmeat, and asparagus, topped with mozzarella cheese in a roasted garlic cream sauce.
