This is a popular Italian eatery near the Imperial Palace. It gets quite busy during the noon hour, with a mix of Japanese patrons and foreigners, some of whom work for the British Embassy nearby. I had an excellent pasta dish here. A pleasant choice although they have no system for sharing dishes for those not so hungry after a spin or two around the Imperial Palace.

I guess people have to understand that restaurants are not just about tastes.

This place is like Elio's home and we pay him a visit to be hosted and have a wonderful time.

Nothing super about the food, but everything is warmly made, and I just think that this is soul food for the Itaian people living in Japan.

Having driven for days staying and eating Japanese, this place was just a nice change.

1. Walkable for us at The Prince Gallery Tokyo Kioicho in a very nice neighborhood filled with small restaurants

2. Very friendly staff-5 are Italians

3. Enough to chose from-classic Italian menu

4. Nice interior-not pretentious

5. Food was ok-not exceptional

6. Wine a bit expensive (but is’s Tokyo)

7. It is a very nice place to enjoy dinner

There is a lot to like at Elio : the food is nicely prepared, service is pleasant...but the noise is deafening. I had a headache all afternoon. They should really invest in some sound proofing.
