I've eaten at Ioesco many times. The menu is extensive with some authentic Italian dishes. The food and service is always consistently good.

We had dinner there and it was great. The previous time was about a year ago and we have never been disappointed. It was a Friday and you have to book. The place is very popular. Their octopus starter was excellent and the shank main course was a winner. Service was prompt and the staff very friendly. They have a... More

A last minute decision to dine at Ioesco Cafe certainly was not a disappointment. We didn't realise how busy or popular this restaurant was on a Friday night. Not having a reservation was not a problem. We enjoyed a wine while a table was found for us. A comprehensive menu and daily specials made it difficult to choose. We went... More

We have eaten here with friends a couple of times before and have never been disappointed. It took me some time to make my choice, then the waiter arrived with the specials list and I was spoilt for choice once again. I had the Atlantic salmon with prawns, my husband (with dairy intolerance) was able to order chicken with mushrooms,... More

Loved this place. Great venue, excellent quality food and a suave kind of atmosphere. Had the Calamari for entree which were beautiful, eye filet for a main medium rare which melted and chocolate moose for desert which i can say was the best moose i have ever had in my life!

Desserts were STUNNING, mains and entrees really nice however the service was questionable. They tried (and seemed nice) BUT there were lengthy delays and even when we asked for water we had to ask 3 times to finally get some. We were a table of 9 at Sunday lunch - and most places have issues managing large tables but the... More

Ioesco is our favorite restaurant and always have excellent food and service. We had lunch with friends on Sunday 4 May and noticed the service was not up to the usual standard, probably as the owner was not present. Subsequent visits were excellent as expected and we remain avid supporters of this excellent restaurant.

This is our favourite special 'local' restuarant. We have had lunch just for 2 and a dinner for 10 here and it is always great. The food is outstanding and the service is subtle yet well defined. Now that I am thinking about it, I might book for lunch tomorrow ...
