Good Pizza

Worthy of a mention from our visit to Geelong. Fairly good pizza at a reasonable price. Really flavoursome bases with the right amount of toppings and not too greasy. Would order from here again.

El Toro sounds Spanish, but is very Italian. It is run as a family business, was sold just over three years ago after many, many years of operation, then recently bought back again after the intervening owners struggled with it. Sam Burgio and family are now back at the helm, and the place is back on song, producing classic Italian... More

Good atmosphere. Service is average but efficient. Starter and pasta were very good. Pancakes with fruit and icecream was a hit. will go back again.

El Toro's has been a popular eating place in Geelong for many years. The food is Italian and as well as pizza and pasta they offer dishes such as Veal Scallopini and other Italian classics. Meals are served with either salad, chips or vegetables which my partner misread. He was disappointed when his veal cutlet arrived with a huge pile... More

A group of four of us had dinner here on a fairly busy evening. Three pasta dishes and the pizza were all declared excellent - freshly prepared and with a lovely home cooked feel to the dishes. Desserts were mixed - the apple crumble was great, but an Easter special of filled Easter eggs was disappointing. Service was quick, once... More

My folks used to bring my brother and I here when we were kids. So when my birthday came around this year I said we have to go back. All our food was excellent. From my pizza to Dad's chicken parmi to Nan's cannelloni. It was all great. Our waiter was super friendly and even sung happy birthday with us.... More

Good service, great pizzas and good value for money. Can be a little noisy at times however I guess this is part of the ambience. Great parking at the back after 5.30pm
