Very friendly service but the food was not great. More like the kind of pizza you get from a takeaway at 3am after a night out rather than authentic Italian.

So comfortable, a relaxed venue beautiful simple food. Not pretentious but friendly and gracious which really exhibits the fact that they are very much authentic Italian.
I love Elio's.

Can be long wait time for meals, I understand that this could be because everything is prepared fresh (the food is amazing) but can be too long especially is dining with Children. Also, the lighting is terrible, which again is difficult if dining with children. But still it is one of the best restaurant in QLD.

The staff at Elio’s were very attentive. Food was brought out at the perfect timing and we didn’t feel rushed to order. The baked risotto was delicious as was the duck. Great food right on our doorstep.

Amazing.

First time I have been and I'll absolutely be back again. Food was excellent, service top notch and we lucked out with Tuesday Magic Night which the kids kept raving about on the way home. Daz the magician going round the tables was great.

This place is a suburbian jewel
it has european feel situated on a busy intersection.
Cars and buses passing, the chatter of the dinners people arriving and greeting others.
Paul and his staff joking with everyone
It a fun night out having dinner

Great value for 2 people $50 for lovely food, delicious wine and the desserts were amazing.
Having a choice of 2 pizzas or pastas from anything on the menu provided plenty of choice.
We will be back on a Monday night again 👍🏽

Very disappointing night. Small pokey table very uncomfortable couldn't get to seats without moving table forget it if you need to get up to go to the toilet everyone had to get up so table could be moved. Food overpriced for the quality and took a long time to arrive.

I love this place I've only been there twice because I'm a poor apprentice. The pasta selection is great and doesn't come across as boring and stereo typical, it's a nice selection of pastas with great complementing flavours. The value is amazing on couples night and it inspires me to want to go there on a regular night just to support the business by paying the regular price at some stage. Only slight knock is that didn't get there til about 8:30 so was a bit later but wanted to wait a bit longer for the desert while digested the dinner and then relax and chat while enjoying the tea/coffee but the staff were a bit rushy to get us out. Make sense that's just how it is in Australia so not really the restaurants fault.

First time my Dad has been to Elio's and he raved about it, food, wait service and authentic owner. I always love it when the owner takes time to speak with diners, just takes the dining experience to another level.

No wonder Elio's has been in business for years....I can never fault anything , from the moment we enter the restaurant we are treated by friendly smiley faces, then again by the waiter who took our order, he was very good , he remembered everything , then the food the smell was amazing , and it was delish . My only suggestion is if you are going to go then booking is a must, then you will not be disappointed...thank you Elio's we will be back...Jenny

our booking was for 5.30.pn arrival we were the only group seated indoors. by the time we left at 7.30 the noise was fairly high since the restraint was overflowing. so if u want quiet go early. Food and service was exceptional. would definately recommend
