Elio’s Osteria at Carina is a small independently-owed restaurant. It has no association with any other restaurant, whether or not they may have a similar name. A google search will quickly identify Elio’s bar in Sydney, Elio’s Bistro in Victoria, Elio’s Restaurant in Chicago. There is no tie to any of them. It is not a franchise. My wife Nat and I bought it from the Vasta Family in 1999; they bought it from Elio and Margie Marinelli in about 1994; Elio and Margie set it up about 1984 (or so). I am in nearly every day, my trusted crew look after the store when we are having a day away. Please say hi when you are in , we thrive on our regulars, some of them we have served for nearly 20 years between this restaurant and others we have owned and run.
