Great neighborhood restaurant undaunted by the 2nd Avenue Subway. Food is great. Service is great. Crowd is great and the noise level is what you would expect......high energy. Dale loves the risotto. I think the liver with sauteed onions is best in NY. We brought one of our 24 year old friends and she was very comfortable with the mix of generations.

Management don't care about you they only try to accomodate as many people as possible. Waiters are not coming to check if the food is ok and when you talk to them they kind of ignore you. They clear the plates even if the others are still eating. You have the feeling that they want you to eat fast pay and go you don't even have to ask for the bill and it is on the table Never again Ronit Dinour

A masterpiece of hubris and conceit, Elio's caters to the rich and famous, which means they couldnt care less about the rest of us. There are at least a dozen places in the neighborhood with better cuisine, and decidedly friendlier service. Go to see Matt, Woody, and Tom, but dont expect a warm welcome or anything resembling a good value proposition. Hey look, theres Katie BFD.

Noise level is a problem at this very busy establishment where the known are treated extremely well and the unknown's ignored. Recommend eating at the Bar with one of the best mixologists in NYC.

The chicken parm is on another level. I suggest half orders of their pasta for appetizers. Pricey but very much worth it. Make a reservation.

A true Italian restaurant! Food is delicious. Ask the chef to make a bolognese for you (not on menu formally). Decent service but the waiters seem stressed. It was also very loud, but not a huge deal. Great stuff
