After eating at Elio's several times I found the reviews rather disappointing. Each time we have eaten here we have found the staff welcoming, service good - never having to wait long and the food has always been well cooked and delicious. The portions may seem small but I have never left the table feeling hungry.
Eating in the conservatory gives a true Italian feel with Bouganvilia flowering throughout the year and I would happily recommend this Trattoria to friends and family as I am confident they would have an enjoyable dining experience.

i visited Elio's when i first moved to Barton 5 years ago and decided never to go again! Expensive, with the smallest portions Ive ever been served.Bored staff and sloppy service.Yes inside it is beautifully decorated and there is a feel of 'real' Italy.But not enough to return.However with the opening of Stables an affordable restaurant serving similar if not the same food Elio's seems to have pulled there socks up!Prices have been reduced - if only slightly and portions have increased.In this case a bit of compition seems to be good for the customers.I hope that Elio's can shake off the bad reputation it has had in the past.

6 of us dined here on the 5th October for a family members birthday. Service was good, didn't have to wait too long for our meals and all were satisfactory, although the portions of vegetables were on the meagre side (6 small new potatoes to share between 3 people!). The price of the meals are expensive for what you get (i.e an ok pepperoni pizza was over £10). Overall an average experience because the price.

Don't go Hungry, be prepared to wait hours for a table, soggy pasta and greasy zuccini not my idea of good quality food. When a member of our party didn't want her cheesecake swimming in single cream it was returned on a clean plate with a soggy bottom where the cream had soaked in.
Staff told us they didn't keep their tips, there is no view at all. There are far better Italian Restaurants in Hull and i would much prefer to travel.

We went early on a Wednesday evening when you half expect the staff to be down in the dumps but the enthusiasm and willingness to please really shone through. The food, decor and atmosphere were excellent and the value for money of the early menu is outstanding. Best Italian restaurant I've been to for some time. Only downside (and this is really not the fault of the restaurant) was the presence of mischief-making 30 year old yobboes in the street outside who were clearly on something stronger than valpolicella. Unfortunately this is something you're likely to come across in any English town nowadays.
