My daughter lives in Gardena and suggested that we give this place a try as she had heard good things about it. Let me say that the ambiance was just terrific. The ceiling must be about fifteen feet high, and the way the tables were set up truly reminded me of something you might find in Italy. The waiter was... More

Restaurant is in an industrial area, small parking lot. Best to find street parking. Lunch is busy, a little loud. No booths, tables are close together. Pizza is very good, really thin crust, very light. Fish was surprisingly good. Recommend sharing a pizza & a pasta dish.

Like this place and have been several times for lunch and once for dinner. Pizza is very thin and tasty. The atmosphere is almost "industrial" but different in a cool way. Parking can be a hassle. Would definitiely recommend this restaurant for lunch and probably dinner.

So a friend of mine asks if I want to have lunch yesterday and I agree, since I was going to be in Gardena that day. As I am driving in the industrial area, and almost pass the restaurant, I make a hard left and into the small parking lot. Unfortunately parking is limited and tight but there is street... More

Our family of 4 (2 adults 4&7 yr olds) visited this place based on trip advisor reviews. All of the positive reviews were accurate. Family fun atmosphere complete with gelato bar with sample tasting for kids & adults (so many delicious choices). Informal fun warehouse type atmosphere, where the kids can view food preparation and service. If you want candles... More

In an old industrial site. Pasta is sensational, Pizza is even better; maybe the best. Gelato very, very good. A unique idea that results in exceptional food at reasonable prices. A can't miss, try it. However, if you want a pompous atmosphere this is not the place. It's kind of a cafeteria atmosphere.

Thanks to trip adviser, we found this great restaurant (location does not do it justice) with great tasting food. All my family was fully satisfy with all meals. Customer services was also very good. My family also loved their deserts. Will be back for more.

I'm an Italian food snob. I lived in Italy for 1 1/2 years. I don't like Americanized Italian food. I was so thrilled to be introduced to Eatalian Cafe. The food is fabulous, truly authentic. Many people working there are Italian, which I love. If you love real lasagna or pesto you won't find any better. Don't skip the gelato... More
