We went to Elia's to celebrate my birthday. We had a great time. The wait staff was wonderful; the food generous and delicious. I had the grill sampler; she had the giro plate. We also had the hummous with veggie appetizer. It all was great.

I've been going to Elia's since before they moved to their beautiful new building. I kind of miss the small, family-owned restaurant feel that it had before but the new location is spacious, beautiful, and very atmospheric. Their food is consistently amazing. The owner is...More
