    I chose to celebrate my 50th birthday on Wednesday with my immediate family at Elio's which is close to my home, it is a special place to eat out, the food and service of Paul and Team was again, fantastic. It's the third l've eaten there and l'm never disappointed. Paul really pulled out the stops to make the evening special, taking time out to speak with my family, service of food and drinks never far away despite a full house on a very hot evening, l also love the ambience and a friend bought a bottle of wine for us and Paul recommended a Chianti, it was a lovely gift and the wine the same. Thank you Elio's!

    Elios is everything you want, or need, in a neighbourhood restaurant. It is cosy and relaxed and you are made to feel very much at home by the staff. The food is delicious and the portions are very generous. The value is unmatched. I cannot recommend Elios enough.

    Paul and co. provide a dining experience with a personal touch you won't find at larger establishment. They make you feel right at home. Fantastic range of dishes to choose from, can highly recommend the penne san paulo, seafood risotto, and confit duck on fettucine. And don't skip the garlic and cheese bread, you'll regret it.

    Absolutely loved our date night last night. Recommend the cheesy garlic calzone if you want a mouthful of mozzarella!! My date loved their steak and my garlic mussel hot-pot with marinated veges was out of this world. Great sized portions, and super decent prices for foods and bevvies. Def coming back with a group next time, the ambience is perfect for a group!

    We used to go to Elios at their previous location quite a lot, but haven’t been to their current location until last night. We were happy to find that the food and service are still as we experienced over 3 years ago. Both the indoor and outdoor dining areas are very pleasant. We will be back!

    Our extended family have enjoyed going to Elio’s for celebratory meals, and pizza take-aways, for decades, and we keep going back for more because it’s good Italian tucker, friendly ambience, and efficient service. My favourite is the Baked Seafood Risotto!! 😛

    The Owner, Paul and his staff are always friendly and efficient. Food was so quick to serve. Exceptional pizza, first time with the Gnocchi and it was brilliant. Would definitely recommend the couples deal nights on Wednesday nights. Tip: book early & online to avoid disappointment and missing out on a table. So good. My favourite Italian night and a 3 course meal for $25.00 can't beat that anywhere! Will be back for sure!!! Love it 💜💜
