Another grand dinner

You will drive by and not even know this is a restaurant. It's in a warehouse and so don't expect fancy, carpets, candles, etc. That's what makes this so much fun. Concrete floors, industrial lighting and OUTstanding food. The pizza is the best there is - straight out of Italy. I had the lasagna and it was really good. The... More

This is the original location for a small chain of authentic Italian restaurants. The menu selection is incredible: pizza, pasta, meats, salads, appetizers and desserts. Definitely save room for dessert. The pastas are fresh, pizzas are handmade and gelato is from scratch. There is a limited beer and wine selection. The only way you lose is you come during a...

This place is a gem. An old ostrich farm turned into a restaurant where they make their own cheese, desserts and the food is delicious beyond ratings. The pizza itself is very thin, the topping pairings are awesome and a la carte meals are also very good and plentiful. Don't forget to get some real gelato before you leave. Parking... More

Excellent food in a surprisingly industrial area. The facility is very clean abs the staff did a good job. Unique decor using inventory goods as the decor. Highly recommend and get there early as it fills up fast.

Visited here while staying in Gardena on business. Building is a converted warehouse with an open kitchen and a trendy feel to it - not like your regular restaurant. We came on a Thursday and arrived at 5.30pm and were seated straight away. Arriving early is recommended as the car park is not so big and by just after 6pm... More

From Georgia and looking for a decent meal. Pulled up TripAdvisor and found this place highly rated and reasonably priced. When you drive down Broadway looking for it, you will drive right past it. Based on how it looked from the outside And the industrial location, I almost passed. Glad I didn't! Awesome authentic Italian (don't let the name fool... More

This is in an industrial area in what appears to have been a warehouse and not much has been done to it. Our group of 11 was handled very well with great service. The pizzas are a good size and very thin crust. The 4 Stagione pizza has 4 toppings that each was only on two slices. The salads were... More

In Turin, Italy there is the Eatly which is huge converted factory that sells various foods, wines and pots and pans to cook them in as well as restaurants. Eatalian was so similar in the feel and ambiance I expected to hear Italian spoken. The pizza was better than Italy because the sauce there tends to be watery and gets... More
