Was very pleased with quality of food. The best shrimp fra diablo I have ever had. Hubby had lasagna very good also. Restaurant just needs polish to match such great food. No fresh ground pepper. Butter tasted like margarine, rolls though hot and very good. Server nice, but not experienced. Seemed overwhelmed. We stayed at Marriott in the high rise area. Took taxi down to shop at the Alhambra store( souveniers so reasonable, compared to high rise prices) and figured while we were there we would have dinner. Very surprised. Worth paying $20 for taxi. Meal was that good. Same price as you would pay at home. With tip $75, with shared appetizer. Highly recommend. Nice to get away from high rise noise. Sat outside on a beautiful evening in Aruba!

I was there some month ago with some friends and could find nothing special with the food. They even did not serve the Insalata Caprese with any dressing. I had to ask for it and wait 10 minutes to get some oil and vinegar. When I asked for Balsamico the waitress looked to me if I come from an other planet. I love Italian but will not loose my time again at Elliots.

My husband and I went to Ellioti's while staying at the Bucuti Beach Resort for our honeymoon. It was recommended to us by the Concierge at the Bucuti who told us they make their fresh pasta in house. It's a VERY brief walk from the Bucuti and the food is fantastic! We started with some calamari fritti and enjoyed some complimentary bread while waiting for our dinner to be served. The restaurant is not very large and has a cozy Tuscan feel with soft lighting and an attractive wood bar at one end. At the other end of the restaurant is a glass wall that looks out to the front of the Bucuti Resort. They have outdoor seating as well with a bar on their patio. My husband had a rolled chicken dish (forgot what it was called) and I ordered linguini alfredo with jumbo shrimp and broccoli (a variation of an item on their menu that they happily altered for me). Everything was delicious, but a bit pricey. I'd definitely recommend Ellioti's to anyone vacationing in Aruba--especially Bucuti guests who are fortunate to be so conveniently located near Ellioti's.

Elliotis is located in the low rise district near Buccuti, Aruba Beach Club, and Costa Linda. For those that have been to Aruba before and loved Valentinos, the chef (Jeffrey) from Valentinos is the chef at Elliotis. You will NOT find better Italian food even at home. Jeffrey is a true culinary genius. The Calamari is amazing! My family ate at Elliotis 5 times in two weeks and loved every single meal. If you have children and they prefer pizza or more casual food, you can also order off the Pizza Bobs menu and have it brought to you at Elliotis since the owner of Pizza Bobs (Adriana) is also the owner of Elliotis. You will not be sorry that you went to Elliotis!
