“Come for the food, stay for the service”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

Elio's has a great range of well-made dishes served in generous portions - the mozzarella calzone and BBQ spare ribs in particular are standouts. Our family has dined there again and again, and we have turned many friends on to Elio's. However, even better than the food is the brilliant customer service. The owners, Paul and Nat and their staff are some of the nicest, most professional people you'll meet. Nothing is too much trouble for them. If anything at all is wrong with your meal or table, they will fix it. It's a pity more restaurants don't have their work ethic. They want you to have an enjoyable experience, and leave happy - and full!

“truly italian”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

This great family osteria has been around for more than 25 years. Went for a girls dinner recently and everyone was IMPRESSED with the choices....some usual italian food with an aussie twist. Pasta and pizzas were fabulous. Service was wonderful and meals a good size. Have dessert!
Definitely going again.

“Great Food, Good Prices”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

Small suburban restaurant, but full of atmosphere and good food, good menu choices and prices were reasonable. Bookings are essential and the desserts were to die for especially the donuts and the nutella calzone

“Great food”
Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

Love this place, great food, service can be up and down, but generally up. Worth while for the delicious food. Prices could be lower but meals are a big size.

“Yummo”
Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

We have been going to Elios for the past couple of years. The dine in or take away is great. It gets really busy and that is due to the great food and service. So sometimes the wait time is long.

Probably one of the best pizzas I have eaten is from Elios. My 9yo son loves their pasta.
