Elios is our favourite Italian Restaurant. My husband and I have dined there many many times over more than 20 years. The food is outstanding and the service is fantastic!

Online booking was okay, but became complicated when we tried to adjust our booking. Software didn’t seem to work and then the restaurant staff didn’t seem to believe us when we called and then got passive aggressive with us. Food was nice though and I would still recommend this great local business.

Elio’s is just like a traditional Italian restaurant. The staff are friendly and attentive, and the food rarely disappoints. Elio’s is one of those hidden gems in Brisbane.

Been here lots of time and unfortunately the last time we came the food was just average . We ordered a pasta and it was very under seasoned and bland and pizzas were a tad soft .

The usual high standard of food and great value "couples night" meal for us both. Staff attentive, but not in your face. Elio's has been a regular for us for years and will continue to be a goto restaurant

Food was not up to the standard of a previous visit.
The bill at the end of the night was wrong. We were charged items from the previous diners on this table.

This was our first time at Elio's and was for a family birthday. We were a group of 5 and all the food was delicious and we ate a lot! Can highly recommend the foccacia, calzone, antipasto (yum!), ricotta ravioli pumpkin (fantastic!), tortellini carbonara, zeppole dessert and many more dishes. All dishes were generous size serves and that included the entree size pasta (for mains), which were very filling. The staff were fantastic and really added to the enjoyment of the night. They surprised us all by bringing my son's dessert out with sparklers in it for his birthday. The whole restaurant joined in singing happy birthday and being a teenager my son was suitably embarrassed, but I suspect also privately enjoyed being made a fuss over. Overall we had a fantastic dinner, delicious food and great atmosphere. We'll definitely be back.
