A long weekend trip to Geelong saw our family looking for an Italian restaurant with lots of options.
El Toro, in the words of my 14 year old, is having an identity crisis. The Spanish name and bullfighting logo had us wondering what was ahead.
The menu had many options. Pizza, pasta,risotto, veal and chicken options a plenty.
Disappointment began with starters - shop bought oil drenched garlic bread and dry toasted French Stick sliced up called Bruschetta.
Pizzas had a nice base and plenty of toppings. Salmon was a little dry but Amalfi Coast was delicious.
Pumpkin, spinach and pine nut risotto was tasteless and had uncooked pieces of potato? celeriac? One to give a wide berth.
The restaurant is noisy but the wait staff were friendly and performed their job well.

We have been going to El Toro’s
for 20 years now! The service is always fantastic! The pizza and pasta are excellent. We always have a garden salad too. I can also recommend a plate of vegetables which are delicious.

Mum and Dad will only come to this pizza restaurant, food is amazing, garlic bread home made, Pasta amazing, very busy on a Saturday night

The best part is if the owners wife walks out of the kitchen she’s just a joy to see she greets everyone and asked if we are all happy making everyone feel welcoming

We have been eating El Toro's Pizzas in Geelong for many years and they continue to impress. Our favourite is Sams Special.

You can dine-in , takeaway or have your meal delivered. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

Not the cheapest pizza available, but you can see and taste the difference between El Toro pizza and the cheap chain pizzas - no comparison. We particularly love the crust of the pizzas - not "doughy" and not to too thin - perfect!
