    depends when you go

    The food and service can be great, than again it can be poor. It seems it all depends on how busy they are, when its too busy not so good but if it not too crowded simply great.

    Stay away from the clams

    A great room with energetic ambience, a nice visit to a traditional dining room. The food, however, was of mixed quality. A beet salad was tasty, the spaghettini with clams was good enough except the clams were peculiarly chewy, an expensive fish special was okay, but didn't live up to its price. So go for the atmosphere, but keep your expectations for the food low enough so you won't be disappointed.

    tasteless food

    I was a regular at Elio's when I used to live on UES of manhattan. Food used to be outstanding few years back. Now is a completely different story every time i go there. Service is good and the atmosphere is great, but with no food to enjoy. Las time I was there i had a fish that was so small and spoiled with tasteless sauce. My friends had combinations of pastas that look like if they were left overs from hungry pigs that have spited all over the plates. I don't think i would never want to take my friends there anymore. Too sad they lost the touch!

    Perfect as usual.

    We frequent Elio's several times per year, and have yet to be let down. It is always a pleasant dining experience that includes great service, incredible food, and an atmosphere that is second to none. Keep up the good work!

    I headed in with high expectations because I've heard great things about their food... We ordered a plate of calamari as our appetizer and were disappointed by the flavor of the sauce. The calamari was prepared well, nice and light, as was the sauce. It was "delicate" but didn't leave any significant impressions. As my main course, I ordered the Fettuccine Amatriciana. The flavor was very good but the pasta was cooked unevenly. I thought the pasta was handmade but could have heard the waiter incorrectly. It definitely did not have the texture of handmade pasta. My friend's pork was flavored very well as well. It's unfortunate that the service was poor and food...

    Great food but...

    This place has airs about itself. The staff has had the fortune to serve some notable clientele however this has made them short & arrogant with other customers. Food is food, money is money, customers are customers, and manners are manners.

    Great Italian

    Elio's is a great Italian restaurant on the upper east side. Busy, loud atmosphere in side --good service (not great) but the food is really delicious and worth the money. The chicken francecse is the best.
