There is nothing to say but good things about Ilda. The food is outstanding but the service is even better. We have been there 5 or 6 times and we have always enjoyed the food, ambience and superb service!

This was my wife and I fifth or sixth time coming to Ilda’s. Every time I/we and something different and every time it has been on point. We have brought friends and family with us a couple of times and trip we brought my wife’s cousin who was an Executive Chef at several resorts and restaurants in Ft. Lauderdale and Highlands and he was very pleased with the food and service. Kim was our server and she was awesome. The whole staff was very helpful and professional. Even when my wife had a concern about one of the Kitchen help who was touching hair and wasn’t using a tasting spoon. Besides that the Food was awesome. Wild boar was outstanding and the Tiramisu is Heavenly. We come to the Mountains once a month and we will try to stop by every time. Thank y’all for a great restaurant.

As a native Italian, I veryuch appreciated the quality, attentiveness to service, the ambiance, and if course the food. İ will not eat pasta in local restaurants generally, or go to "Italian" restaurants, but i found my dish exceptional. Thank you.

What a special venue for any and all occasions. It is a rare find in the unique town of Sylva, NC. You could take this special spot and place it in any major city and it would equal the best restaurants around. So very glad a neighbor suggested Ilda to us. We have been twice and plan many more trips in the future.
