We never dined at Eolo. We made a reservation for Restaurant Week via Open Table. We were excited to try a restaurant that we had not been to before. When we showed up we found a sign on the door suggesting that we try their sister restaurant Pastai. Eolo had gone out of business. We went to Pastai expecting that they were participating in Restaurant Week also but they were not. We stayed and did dine there because we had been there before and knew that it was good and did not want to search for another restaurant. The meal was very good as expected. I initiated a conversation with the manager and he apologized. Our coffee was comped from our bill but we left feeling disappointed and deceived. This is basically "Bait and Switch" advertising. I don't understand how Open Table can advertise a restaurant on their website that is out of business. Was it the restaurant that initiated this deception or Open Table? I anticipate your reply!
We left after fifteen minutes. No waiter. No bartender. No host. Don't bother.
The food is first rate - Sicilian - a lighter, fresher Italian. The staff are friendly and willing to assist with wine selections. Don't be put off by the drab, small decor. The food would not be out of place at much grander location.
The food was true to Sicilian cooking. Pasta Con Sarde, Panelles and Caponata were outstanding. Nice neighborhood crowd and the Hostess was very attentive around the room. A good meal and a good time.
We enjoyed our time and look forward to coming back again.
Acceptable food. Salad was good but pasta with clams was overcooked. Clams were not the little ones (vongole) that I expected. Disappointing.
Eolo is a great Italian restaurant.
The food is always fresh and perfectly prepared.
I love the prosciutto, caprese, gnocchi, and ravioli.
Great Sicilian meal in the heart of Chelsea. The bar has amazing happy hour specials with tapas at $5 and happy hour all night at the bar. I have never actually sat at the bar, but the dining experience is that much more comfortable, so both were unexpected great finds for me. The wine listasting has something for everyone and they give you after dinner drinks , limoncello etc on the house. My first meal here was with a group and the second with one other person. I would highly recommend the location for any occassion. The menu is very diverse and tasty.
Great service, great authentic Sicilian food, & good value / atmosphere!
A surprising Sicilian find and so convenient to the Irish Repertory Theater. Interesting menu and reasonable prices. The Arrancini was an especially tasty appetizer.
