A very intimate, small restaurant. Food was excellent and staff were very obliging. Although it is small we didn't feel rushed to finish in order to accommodate more. Traditional food served with a smile!

Always a great atmosphere and welcome from both Elena & Franco. Good food & excellent coffee served with a smile. Recommend for a quick drink, a good breakfast or a hearty lunch. Elena will also provide a 'takeaway' if you haven't time to enjoy the family-like ambience of this lovely little eateries.

Eat here weekly. Great breakfasts and proper coffee. Traditional, freshly cooked Italian lunches AND pizza on a Friday evening from half 5. Always made to feel welcome. Very reasonably priced too. Can't recommend enough.

Elena apologised for quietness of place - usually very busy. Made very welcome, and once regulars started arriving I was included in the conversation - if I wanted to be.

Having read the reviews thought we'd try Elena's for a lunchtime celebration and we were not disappointed. What a fantastic and tasty meal - the best we've had in Lincoln for a long time. Great atmosphere and wonderful fresh food. We will definitely be back sooner rather than later - it really is something special.

For a great night at a sensible price Elenas takes a huge amount of beating. Top quality food with fun and friendly service guaranteed and always a convivial atmosphere.

I love Elena's. You know you are always going to find something delicious, freshly prepared that morning, coupled with a very warm, caring welcome. This lunchtime was no exception - a stand out apple and lemon sponge cake, warm from the oven. Terrific with their very good latte and a very nice treat after a tasty, homely cauliflower cheese.
