About ELMO'S

Welcome to Ponsonby’s always-friendly local pizza bar and restaurant, Elmo's! The spacious eatery plays with bold, classical decor and brassy furnishings, allowing room for their wood-fire pizza oven and cocktail bar. The seasonal menu specialises in hand-crafted pizzas and handmade burrata dishes, as well as some of the best cocktails you’ll find in Ponsonby. Although an excellent place to enjoy cocktail hour with a tipple and delectable food, Elmo’s is also the perfect place for an afternoon sit-down soiree.

The funghi pizza is the only reason I come here! The other stuff is good, but never take the funghi off the menu! It's the best pizza around!

I really enjoyed my dining experience at Elmo's! I'm vegan and my partner is omni - we ordered potato skins to share and they accouterments were served on the side so that he didn't miss out. I ordered the Miss Hemp pizza and it was to die for. Also so, so impressed with the customer service. Thanks so much for the magical date night, team!

The staff were all so lovely and great at their job, I didn’t have to ask for anything. Food was amazing! The only negative was that we thought the pasta servings were a bit small. Loved the decor and atmosphere was great too 😊

Good family choice. But (like most restaurants) too noisy for easy conversation

Our server was fantastic! We all had dietary requirements and he made sure everything was good. He checked on us just enough and always had a smile and very welcoming.

Our server (blond girl) was great. Food was good, awesome potato skins and the Ginaciale croquettes were spot on, pizza bases were superb, but $26 a pop - not value for money at allmoney maker there.

We held a surprise party at Elmo’s with a large group of people. The service was wonderful, the food was delicious and came out quickly. The staff had some lovely touches for the birthday and went out of their way for us!

I had an amazing time celebrating my birthday at ELMO'S! As a group we had the set menu- the food was amazing, there was lots of it and it was really good value for money. All of my friends had a great time and said how much they enjoyed their meal. My only minor difficulty was with how loud the environment was. We were seated by the bar and it was very difficult to hear anyone at the table over the music and other people in the room. However, this is pretty difficult to control in a restaurant and didnt take away from the experience Have recommended to heaps of people and will definitely be back soon! :-) Thanks
