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.

Great authentic, Italian atmosphere. Good service and very enjoyable food. The duck with mushrooms and fettucine was delicious. A real hidden gem.

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

Loved it, we were very well looked after in both service and food. Tastiest pizzas I've had in a long while, the crust was so fluffy and crispy. Looking forward to going back again!
