Quick service and great tasting food. We had a party of 4 and our meals were brought out very quickly on a busy night so a big "thumbs up!".

Great little spot close to home for a bite to eat. I often come here for a delicious meal and they never disappoint. I got a entre size Pumpkin, bacon pasta and it was very generous in size and delicious. Staff are always lovely, friendly and accommodating. The place was full the night I dined here and it was a little noisy to talk but atmosphere was great. Love the fact you can take your own bottle of wine and its nice I wasn't charged for corkage:) See you next time..

Elio's is a go-to Italian neighbourhood gem - great service, food, atmosphere and location, plus being BYO is a fantastic bonus.

Hadn’t been to Elio’s for over 20 years but the food and atmosphere is just as great as it was back then.

Hot tip - have the garlic bread... it’s to die for!

Great restaurant with fabulous food. The service and ambiance are always very good. Although I understand the food is authentic, a few more gluten free options - even if just with desserts - would be welcome.

Elios make the best pizzas. Love gluten free option. Outside seating was crammed and quite dark, perhaps any other layout would feel more comfortable. Definitely going back again, look forward to whatever improvements are implemented

Your referance to noise level is miss leading. If the smallest box is refering to the amount of noise as in low or the larger one meaning it wasnt a problem. Noise level low
It can be read both ways.
Love Elios
Also it should b up to me what i choose to comnent on. Not whether your boxes have been ticked

I live the way that the owner greets his customers and gets to know his regulars. The food is always good value and tasty. I love the garlic cheese calzone best.
