Restaurant elio is a family-inspired business, headed by Elio Cordaro. Elio grew up in a large Italian family, where large family lunches were a regular occurrence, so operating a restaurant with 100 guests feels just like home to him!
Elio Cordaro first caught the eye of Norton Street diners when he opened the still-operating Portofino Trattoria, directly opposite elio. After feeding the masses pizza and pasta for a number of years and following a six month eating expedition in Sicily, the designers, architects and builders were called in to create a destination for fine Italian food in a more contemporary atmosphere.
Ten years since opening, you will still find one of the Cordaros (Elio, Daniel, Frank, Carmel or Leonard) greeting you with a warm 'hello' as you enter this Norton Street icon.
