The Illiano's J&P Restaurant Story



Illiano’s J&P Restaurant in Hampstead has been in business for over 30 years. The original New York J&P Pizza started in 1979 and the J&P were the initials of the original owners. New York J&P in Hampstead opened its doors in December 1983. Back then, the store was only 1,200 square feet in a small shopping center next to a video store and High’s. Eventually, the store expanded into the video store. A few years later High’s left and New York J&P took over the building and grew again. In 2004, a new shopping center was built around the restaurant in the Illiano Plaza. The menu has also expanded over the years and the name changed to Illiano’s J&P Restaurant. The J&P was kept so people could still recognize the name.

Illiano’s J&P is a family owned and operated Italian restaurant with roots from Napoli, Italy. There are three locations, Hampstead, Glyndon, and Westminster managed by family and dedicated employees who are committed to serving the authentic Italian specialties. Each location is unique with its own warm and inviting style.

Our menu features savory Italian recipes and classic Italian favorites along with a wide variety of American selections and local Maryland traditions to please everyone dining in, carrying out or catering. We also offer weekly lunch and dinner specials in addition to our regular menu. Illiano’s J&P offers affordable everyday dining for every occasion.

Buon Appetito!


“The pizza was gooey, warm, and fresh with a nice homemade crust. The tangy flavor that was still subtle and amazing came from fresh basil leaves tasted not at all implacable. It appeased my hunger and my brain with the soothing, calming taste. I, only an 11 year old boy, is in love of your restaurant.”

“I have eaten at J&Ps in Glyndon several times, and have always been impressed with the quality of the food and the level of service. And I just now realized that you are the same J&Ps that has a branch in Scaggsville. I haven't yet been to that location, but a friend of mine plays music there fairly often, so I hope to stop by one of these days to hear him, and to have another nice meal at your establishment.”
