History

Ilio DiPaolo was born in Italy in 1926 and left in 1949 for Venezuela. While wrestling in Caracas he met the promoter of the wrestling alliance and the Madison Square Garden Arena, Tutz Mondt. He signed a contract to come wrestle in the States and arrived in 1951 in New York with his work visa. After meeting and marrying his wife, Ethel he traveled around the U.S. and other countries wrestling. Years and years later with several children, Ilio DiPaolo decided to settle down in Buffalo, New York to open a restaurant. He retired from his successful wrestling career in 1965 and opened a pizzeria the same year. They were successful and eventually expanded their business before Ilio DiPaolo passed away in 1995. He is currently in the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, the Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame, and the Canadian Hall of Fame.

    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.
