Always great Italian food,

This is a non pretentious Italian restaurant, very relaxed atmosphere and great food. I had the risotto which was very tasty and my friends enjoyed other pasta dishes. All agreed very good. Service was perhaps a little slow considering that the restaurant was only half full.

I have been to this restaurant twice now and both times have been great, the staff are amazing, the food is so delicious and you get value for money. The variety is awesome and they also offer gluten free. This is my favourite Italian restaurant in Geelong. Keep up the great work El Toro

While having a short stay in Geelong El Toro was just around the corner from where we were staying. It's not much to look at from the front. But once inside it was quite roomy. The food was amazing. And the service was impeccable. The only thing wrong was there was too much on the menu to order. We managed... More

We had lunch on Sunday at El Toro, our first visit to this restaurant. The menu was extensive and the food was equal to anything we have eaten in many restaurants in Italy. The service was warm and friendly. The bill at the end was surprisingly modest. We will be back.

Ower for the past 40 years..food is immpecable. Period of 2 plus years of temporary owner was terrible. Sam is the original owner and now he has many of his geogous daughters doing waiting and the place is the best pizza I have ever had. Robert who has been there for 3 million years makes a great pizza. Tried pizza... More

This pizza restaurant has been at the top end of Geelong since early 70's I'm guessing. ..... A true testament to good food has given it a long stay..... Excellent pizzas as well as pasta dishes or steak with 3 vegs or whatever you want, El Toro is the place to go. Original owner has taken control of business now... More
