We have eaten here often and will continue to come. The best thing is the cheesy garlic calzone! Service is quick, even when they are busy. Entree sized pasta dishes are huge and enough for two (but we always get two meals and take home the doggy bag for the next day's lunch). I love that the proprietor always checks in at every table - it shows he cares about the restaurant.

It was our first visit in over 15 years... and it was wonderful. The food was great, the atmosphere was delightful and the owner, Paul remembered me from 15 years ago. He has an amazing memory. It felt like being reunited with an old friend. The staff were friendly and attentive. The portions were so generous that I sadly didn’t have room for dessert. The garlic bread alone was worth the thirty minute drive.

Great night, again! Menu seemed refreshed with some new culinary adventures. Always a good sign when you have difficulty deciding which meal to order. We had a party of 6 and all really enjoyed their evening. We’ll return for sure.

Elio's never fails. The food is reliably great, the service is friendly and efficient, servings are generous and prices are super reasonable. They're always pumping (as they deserve to be), but they still manage to make dining there a very chilled experience for their customers. Stop reading and book already!

An awesome find! Food is fantastic and for the Monday’s couple special - It is just pure value! The location has a lot of parking spaces available making it very convenient. The waiters make sure that you are catered for and were very friendly.

Elio's is one of my favourite Italian reataurants, not only for their delicious food but for the great service and very helpful staff. The menu has so many excellent choices with very generous helpings in both entree & mains sizes. We dined on a busy Saturday evening in a party of 9 and could not fault a thing!

It was great, we had a great table and service. The only thing was we found it hard to read the menu in the light but that could also be because we are getting older:-)
Have a great day.

We were at Elio's to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary. Tuesday night is magic night at Elio's! We were treated to a magic show while we waited for our meal. When the meals arrived they did not disappoint. I had Confit Duck, my husband had the Morgans Risotto. Both meals were of a good size and the taste was yum! It was Tuesday and the place was humming. Lots of people having a good time. We didn't think we had room for dessert but...we were so pleased we ordered the Zeppole to share, it would have been a sin to miss it. We are going back and will tell others about the fab food and staff. We hope they don't have to move to another location (due to a redevelopment) as this location is within easy walking distance of our home.

I have been going to Elios for over 25 years and it never disappoints. Owners and staff make the experience pleasurable and the food is amazing. Awesome hosts and oastas, pizzas, salads, deserts and other main dishes. From first dates, large corporate functions, social meals, birthdays and to now loads of family and inter generational catch ups, it never disappoints. Elios is The Place to meet up. I bring all our interstate and international visitors here for a meal. Awesome food. Great wine list. Wonderful owners Paul and Nat and team. The best Italian Restaurant in Australia! I’ll jeeo coming back for another 25 years!

This restaurant has been here for a long time, the reason is because it's very good at what it presents. Service is usually very good but they were busy, so a little harder to get attention. Overall love the food and keep going back.
