“NOT Italian Food”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

If you like your sauce out of a jar this place is for you. Some of the worst Italian food any person should ever have to eat. TV Dinner would be better. If you HAVE to go to be social.... Order the Chicken well done do NOT get a pasta side as you won't eat it.

“Great Dinner”
Reviewed February 17, 2012

Loved the meal, loved the service, and the bartender was a hoot!

The only thing I disliked about Elios was having a reservation and still having to wait an hour for our table!

“Most over-rated Italian restaurant in NYC”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

The food is bland, the service is rude if you're not a celebrity, and the place is loud. Also, expect to pay twice as much for your meal as you would in a really good NY Italian restaurant. It's one of these places that is all about the crowd, not the food.
