Elio’s is always a great experience. The food is outstanding and is fantastic value for money. My only complaint is that we always end up eating too much!

The place has great Italian food at reasonable prices. The service was homely and the owner takes care of his patrons. Great place to dine. One of Brisbane's hidden gems.

Every time we have been here, the service is quick,friendly and not pushy. The food was as described by
the menu and the staff also had great knowledge in helping us. Felt very welcomed here and will be
returning soon for more fine food and an atmosphere were you feel appreciated.

Once again a great experience! We eat at Elio's regularly, the staff are friendly, witty, helpful and very accommodating. The food is always great, and they offer great mid week deals. If you live in the area and are looking for a something new to try I would highly recommend Elio's.

It’s been there for 25 years for a reason. The staff are just lovely and attentive. The pizza was delicious with enough left over for lunch the next day! Tick tick and tick.

Very friendly service but the food was not great. More like the kind of pizza you get from a takeaway at 3am after a night out rather than authentic Italian.

So comfortable, a relaxed venue beautiful simple food. Not pretentious but friendly and gracious which really exhibits the fact that they are very much authentic Italian.
I love Elio's.

Can be long wait time for meals, I understand that this could be because everything is prepared fresh (the food is amazing) but can be too long especially is dining with Children. Also, the lighting is terrible, which again is difficult if dining with children. But still it is one of the best restaurant in QLD.

The staff at Elio’s were very attentive. Food was brought out at the perfect timing and we didn’t feel rushed to order. The baked risotto was delicious as was the duck. Great food right on our doorstep.

Amazing.

First time I have been and I'll absolutely be back again. Food was excellent, service top notch and we lucked out with Tuesday Magic Night which the kids kept raving about on the way home. Daz the magician going round the tables was great.

This place is a suburbian jewel
it has european feel situated on a busy intersection.
Cars and buses passing, the chatter of the dinners people arriving and greeting others.
Paul and his staff joking with everyone
It a fun night out having dinner

Great value for 2 people $50 for lovely food, delicious wine and the desserts were amazing.
Having a choice of 2 pizzas or pastas from anything on the menu provided plenty of choice.
We will be back on a Monday night again 👍🏽

Very disappointing night. Small pokey table very uncomfortable couldn't get to seats without moving table forget it if you need to get up to go to the toilet everyone had to get up so table could be moved. Food overpriced for the quality and took a long time to arrive.
