Very Good!

Probably because of my heritage, I am always on the look-out for quality Mediterranean. Elia's is such a place - good quality - reasonable prices.

Service is a complete 0 Food is maybe a 2 out of 10 Don't expect drink refills, don't expect bread, don't expect any kind of attentive service. The food is basic. I can make much better pastas and pizzas at home. Please steer away from this joint. I am a VB native and I can think of 100 other places... More

This is the worst restaurant I have ever been in. When we entered there was no one in sight and no one greeted us for several minutes. Two other people came in behind us and waited also. Finally a young girl - waitress - appeared in jeans with holes all up the front and seated us. The room was very... More

We were visiting VA beach and were in search of some good Italian food. We all ordered the spaghetti, awesome! Fresh Italian bread topped it off! Great service.

We were very disappointed with our visit to Casa De la Pasta. I had read mixed reviews but wanted to try somewhere different and give it a chance. First off, it seemed as though we were disturbing the guy in the dirty white t-shirt sitting behind the counter when we asked if we were to seat ourselves or wait to... More

My review would be longer if everything weren't excellent. Elias is one of the few restaurants that I would recommend to anyone looking for authentic Greek food in Hampton Roads. You will not be disappointed. Not only is the food plentiful in portion, it's always fresh and of the highest quality. Whether you walk in two minutes before closing, or... More
