I have been here a number of times and always receive great, friendly service. We went with young children on this occasion and they were catered to very well. The kids menu was perfect and the staff were very good with them. We sat in the outside area which has a good vibe. Food was delicious!

Cute little restaurant - friendly enough staff and extensive menu. Food was middle of the road - expecting a little better for a $29.50 pasta main but nice enough. I think you can find better value but it’s nice enough for a night out.

These folks are just the best. Fantastic food and genuinely warm service. It's like being around the family table, but the food is incredible and you didn't have to cook!

This is a great place to eat as the food is terrific. My only criticism is that it was a little noisy from people in close quarters and flies buzzing around our food.

Feed my belly with good food, that's 4 stars. But when you feed the soul, that's 5 stars. This was a tasty, lovely, fulfilling experience.

Monday Night - Couple's Night.

I recently had the pleasure of dining at Elio's Restaurant. The value is incredible but that aside the food is excellent, atmosphere is great and service is friendly and fast.

Paul and his team ensured that we were well looked after and I will definitely be back for more delicious Italian food.

I cannot think of a time I have left a restaurant feeling more satisfied. The food was absolutely excellent, our host was entertaining and very helpful and understanding. This place has been called an institution from people I have spoken to and I have to agree.

Try this place. Bring friends. Have a good time.
