I'm Italian. And not of Italian descent. I mean Italian from Italy. As such I'm naturally skeptical of Italian food in the United States... Don't talk to me about pepperoni pizza, Genoa salami, or pesto with chicken: all fake. But this restaurant... What a surprise. I had the pizza speciale and the one with crudo di parma and rucola. One... More

Interesting place in a warehouse, but the food was world class italian. It may have been the freshest and best Italian food that I have eaten. The lasagna was world class as was the gnocchi. Even the pastries were excellent. The warehouse ambiance was pretty cool as well.

Everything that I had here was amazing. You don't get any fresher or more homemade than this! The space is open concept and you can see everything being made. I absolutely LOVE their thin crust pizza. Be sure to same some room for gelato too! The location itself is very unassuming and in a warehouse district. You won't see any... More

It's like Bottega Louie's in downtown LA but more affordable and in the south bay! The food is great. I love the roasted butternut squash ravioli, the roasted vegetables with balsamic vinegar and parmesan cheese and the gelatos are yummy. It's very casual and noisy but the food is great.

It's uncanny how this place is nestled in an industrial area. Location what?!! Don't let the neighborhood fool you; they serve some serious food. Their pizzas are my favorite. Super thin with fresh ingredients. You won't be dissapointed.

I heard from several people this was a great secret spot for great food. We went for my birthday with 10 of us. Pizza was amazing, fish also. For a find you have not experienced this is where the Italians go! the pasta is made fresh there and drying for you to see. You would never believe it but its... More

Eatalian is well worth the drive if you don't live close by. Feels European in a sense. Interesting choices and very good gelato made-in house. Not quiet. Minimalist, industrial interior unusual for Gardena.

Really good thin crust pizza. (The plates of homemade pasta looked yummy, too). Be sure to visit the gelato bar, choose your dessert and they'll just add it to your table's bill. Unpretentious decor with visible pipes in the ceiling and stacks of canned tomatoes to separate the waiting area from the diners. All the cars parked along the streets... More

Here is a place not to be expected in the Indrustrial area of East Garenda. A restaurant / factory , that is kid friendly, my granddaughter had a treat of the chocolate gelato. If you enjoy authentic Italian food ,then you will enjoy Eatalia ... You can also watch as they make Mozzaralla Cheese !!!!

Eatalian is one of those diamond in the rough sort of places. The location is in an industrial area of Gardena, California, not the sort of locale where you would expect to find really good food. Patrons don't seem to mind, as the restaurant always seem to be busy. This is not one of those snooty, stuck up places where... More
