great food, but you better go once a week for them to even acknowledge your existence....celeb sightings regularly, great chicken francese. They can make any pasta you want... Reservations a must. Overall, great for new yorkers.

As Frequent travelers to NYC, we usually try different restaurants, but always return to Elio's. This place has it all, atmosphere, service, and the food is incredible.

This place is one of those classic places that never goes out of style. The best pasta in NYC-- no contest. Considering what they have to put with (packed, noisy, and sometimes impatient people), the service is excellent. The food is well worth the price! No wonder it's so hard to get a table!

I've been dining at Elio's for well over a decade. The food has been consistently excellent. The linguine with white clam sauce is one of my favorites and is always very tasty. The specials are always great and I have to say the service is excellent, in fact, they may be over-atttentive at times and the food comes out very quickly. I've seen celebrites there many times, the ambience is exciting and very much alive. The waiters are classic.

We had a very good experience despite the warnings in the other reviews. The place is over-crowded with well dressed diners that seem to never stop coming in. The crowd got much younger as the evening went on. The people watching factor is high all night long. When ordering, trust your waiter's recommendations - we ended up with three entrees that were not on the menu and were very pleased both with quality and portion size. Make sure you order the antipasto appetizer - it was huge and spectacular! The buffalo mozzarella in the apppetizer is simply unbelieveable. Overall, the food was great, service was very good and the atmosphere, although extremely overcrowded, was somehow pleasing as a result of all the interesting people that continuallly pour through the front door. We will go back again.

They don't deliver, but they do offer takeout orders. I once ordered dinner from them - a $23 entree. I paid $25, and the waiter asked if I could wait a second while he attended to someone outside, and he would bring me my change. Some time passed, and I went outside. Another waiter outside seemingly jokingly asked if I was really waiting around for $2. I figured he was being good-natured. But he kept it up - "You're really going to sit around waiting for $2"? I was uncomfortable, but assumed he was kidding. Why would I tip someone $2 when he never waited on me and didn't deliver anything to my apartment? He told me he would get the change - and my $2 was returned to me as 8 quarters. To send a message, apparently.
