We arrived for lunch at 1pm. The waiters were busy rushing around. I got the impression that there was no awareness of the customers or any attention to detail. We were fine because we were not in a hurry. We ordered two simple plates of...pasta with garlic, chili and olive oil. They arrived promptly. I added a little Parmesan cheese to the top. I took a mouthful and then started mixing the spaghetti a little more and found a big, fat, dead fly. The waiter took the plate away but didn’t apologize. Then another waiter came and informed me it would be another 5 minute wait. Then another waiter who was rushing by said a quick “sorry “. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurantMore

Whilst the Pizzas were acceptable the attitude of the staff was awful spoke to us in a surly manner we are English but also fluent German speakers and spoke in their language. The bill for two pizzas a very very small glass of wine and...a small bottle of mineral water was 62 Swiss FrancsMore

Without a doubt the best pizza north of Italy. But much more than that, try oysters, spaghetti vongole or ossobucco, just to name a few examples. Simply great, thank you very much - we will be back!

It was so good I went twice. As a single diner I felt comfortable and loved the food, wine and friendly knowlegable and attentive service. They have a seasonal game menu at present, had venison one day and veal liver the second time. The menu...also has a large selection of pizza and pasta. Can highly recommend when in Davos.More

This place was a Full on surprise - i have yet to come across a Italian restaraunt with such a disaster service - the food was good but the price higher and at this price service was a full blown disappointment - we had reserved...a table of 22 people! Imagine after covid getting these bookings is a sure thumbs up to better business and better employment but looks like the waiters there care a damn - slow speed, wrong orders, argumentative, bad attitude zero interest in the customer - it was just one waiter who was like this but what surprised me is no one bothered to replace him!More

We booked ahead and although busy we had very good service, not rushed and very helpful. Pizza with a wide range of toppings, a rabbit risotto, and pasta dishes on offer. Locally brewed Monsteiner beer ("Watterguoge" a nice dunkel). Staff were engaging, polite and friendly.

Great staff, service, choice on the menu and the food itself was lovely- the location is between both main areas of Davos - opposite the Conference Centre. The restaurant was spotless clean, a number of eating areas in a nice atmosphere - book though as...it gets busy. Food was average prices - considering Davos prices are very high for everything.... Really impressed and well done to the team working there.....More

I recommend this central restaurant for lunch or dinner. You can find various types of pizza, salads, pasta and even meat dishes, and last but not least, vegetarian ones. The place is cozy, the personnel is very friendly and you can watch the Italian pizzaiolo...while his preparing the pizza. You should make a reservation because it’s usual full in the evening. Prices are moderate so you have to try it! You won’t be sorry !More

We had dinner at the restaurant with a big group of friends, families with kids. The pizza is nice and the service is good. There is parking for the customers. I would recommend da Elio and would definitely go again.

It is a busy restaurant. As we arrived very early, we got a table without reservation. The service was very friendly, food and wine were really good.

After having read all the positive reviews we made a reservation and visited an evening before christmas. The restaurant was quite busy, the atmosphere ok, nothing special or cosy. To my disappointment some of the dishes (i had already looked forward to..) that were on...the website menu could not be found on the distributed menu, so we went for a mixed salad and pizza. The salad was fresh, but unfortunately the Italian sauce was nothing exciting, just a sour, convenience dressing. The pizzas were good, crispy and with sufficient toppings. The waiters were efficient, but didnˋt really seem to care. All in all I would have expected more after all the good reviews and was really disappointed. Average, but nothing more.More

It pains me to leave an unhappy review, but here goes...First I need to say the food is good.The wait staff was attentive and kind. But... and this is a big but...we paid 80 bucks for 1 bottle of mineral water, 2 glasses of wine,...2 little salads and wait for it...one pizza, that we said we were going to split because we weren't that hungry. They charged us 5 extra bucks to split a pizza. I have been in Switzerland for 24 years, never happened before. It was as if they were telling us "you aren't ordering enough so please pay more." I found the pricing a bit ridiculous. 9 francs for 75cl of water, 26 francs for 2 side salads, 27 francs for one pizza plus 5 extra??? (The wine was reasonable and quite good) I am very sorry but this is unacceptable. Like I said decent food nice staff but no, just no. We live in Zurich, we know how expensive this country can be...but this was silly.More

Having spent the day travelling on the Glacier Express the return to Davos was late so we needed somewhere quick as we did not want to eat in the hotel that evening. This restaurant although busy quickly seated us and had menus in our hands....Plenty of choice with prices on a par with everywhere else in Davos. We all chose the same dish strangely which the name I have forgotten which was strips of chicken in what I think was Korma strength curry with rice and cream. It has to be described as "superb taste" with a wonderful presentation and the wait was very little. In my mind a great place to eat with great staff. Thank you Team da Elio.More
