Food was great and the singer was excellent. However the waitress was curt. If I wasn’t there trying to make the night a lovely birthday experience for my wife I would have let the waitress know that her smart remarks were bordering on rudeness and that if she doesn’t enjoy interacting with people in a positive manner then perhaps it’s time to find a different line of work.

Casual, great food, lovely owners who delight in good service. Especially liked the kid’s options which included a glass of milk; so much better than the standard sugar-laden fizzy & juice.

My partner and I love to come to Elios, we went there on our first dinner date, and have been coming for a couple of years now. Apart from having to wait a long time for our dessert on our most recent trip, everything was awesome as usual. The Monday night couples deal is great value for money and the atmosphere is always intimate and friendly.

Food and service is always fantastic! Lovely ambience although it can be noisy as it's always so busy. Parking can also be difficult as it is limited but the food is worth a small walk if you have to park away from the restaurant. Have been many times and recommended it to many friends, will definitely keep going back! Don't miss out!

Fantastic food and service. I think it’s a great sign when a restaurant is full and everyone looks like they are enjoying their meals. Large serving sizes, with myself and a lot of people having doggy bags to enjoy the next day. The best Italian food I’ve had.

The feel of the place was beautiful! The waiters were all extremely nice and so friendly!! However I ordered two hot chocolates and one to be extra hot and when they were brought to the table both were the same temperature. They didn’t specify even that ‘here is the extra hot one’. I also ordered my meal entree sized as I’ve had the gastric sleeve and I was given main size. When I was given a main size I said ‘ohhhh I thought I ordered entree!!! THIS IS HUGE FOR ENTREE!!’ And the lady said ‘no you got the main size’ and I said ‘oh I thought I ordered entree’ I doubted myself for a second knowing full well I haven’t ordered a main size anything for over 2 years. When the lady walked away my partner said ‘you definitely asked for entree sized I heard you’. So in the end we paid $75 for our dinner which I think is a bit steep for two pastas a garlic bread and two hot chocolates and a couple of things were wrong. Flavour was good! Not $75 good though. Definitely has a great ambiance though and I’d happily give it another go Incase it was just a bad night and not always like that :)

One of the best Italian food places in Brisbane. I'd recommend anyone to come try this place out. From the moment I arrived the service was brilliant, the food so tasty, the staff so welcoming and dessert (tiramisu) the best ever!

Maybe...
Was pressured by waitress to order on numerous occasions. Bet annoying after we had been there only a couple of minutes. Ju
The tiramisu was terrible and watery. We all thought it would be authentic Italian but we couldn’t eat it. Ran out of lite beer?

Food was lovely, unfortunately desserts took over 30 mins. But worth the wait. Very crowded and table was to small for 4 people. Would definitely go back.

There seemed to be issues on our last visit. Service was extremely slow and the pizzas when they arrived were at best luke warm. If we'd been able to get some service we would probably have sent them back. We put it down to a bad night as we have usually enjoyed ourselves and it's extremely good value for money. Fortunately we weren't in any hurry and Italian Hot Chocolate was worth waiting for.
