“Amazing”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

Our first time at this restaurant was last night and it was absolutely fantastic. We could not fault anything. They appeared to be busy but seated us immediately. The waiter was very attentive and we were served quickly. We expected our meals to take a while but they were delivered quickly and were absolutely delicious. We were very impressed with every detail and will definitely be back. The magician is an added bonus and very impressive!

“Pleasant evening”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

Took the family here for dinner on a Tuesday night as the kids(18/19yrs) wanted to see the magic show. The table side magic show was a hit with the kids and the service was very good.

We had a selection of pizza and pasta dishes and although the portion size was good (we did not finish the meals) the food was rather bland and very pricey, if you are okay with bland tomato based food with a few herbs to give it color then this will do, I'd would not recommend the place if looking for something with a bit of kick to it. There are better Italian places around for the money.

“Great Night Out”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

My daughter in law booked a room for our son's 40th birthday. There were about 30 of us and once the last guest arrived the food started coming out and coming out and coming out.

It was a fixed menu with a variety of pizzas, pastas and other dishes. They just kept bringing out the food until we said stop. The only small blemishes were that the penne was not hot and they left the prawns to last.

There were gluten free and vegetarian dishes as well. We brought our own wines and they do not charge corkage.

This is a great venue for a party of between 25 and 35 people. All who attended voted it an excellent evening.

“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.
