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

Restaurant is in a former industrial building. Been here a number of times with a local client for lunch and went here for dinner for the first time with my wife last night. Now have a wine bar. Seemed like Eatalian's food is better and fresher at lunch. My lasana tasted like it was reheated and the bread is fresher... More

For a restaurant hidden in the industrial area of Gardena, we were pleasantly surprised to find the place always packed. Understandably so since their food was great -- from the pizzas to their pasta dishes to their gelato desserts. I am fortunate enough to closer to their second location on Crenshaw Blvd, also in Gardena, where the food and service... More

I recently returned from 2 weeks in Italy and have to say that this place has better food than Italy. The owners are experienced restauranteurs from Italy and make you feel welcomed despite the very crowded environs. The pizzas were delicious as were the pasta dishes we enjoyed. Not to be missed is a trip to the gelato bar. Just... More

I spent a week in italy this summer and the food tasted just like it does at this restaurant. Great food and deserts here and, best of all, big portions for small prices. Will return again and again!

We ate dinner at 2 in this room where you consume Italian artisan products and I was very satisfied. Prepare cakes , fresh pasta, pizza, ice cream, cheese , etc. ... I finally tasted great coffee. Quality right price. If you 're in the area stop not to be missed.

I've visited Eatalian several times, mainly for lunch. The setting is 'modern industrial' which sits well with the former textile factory space. You can eat at the bar counter or at tables. Either way, it's all about the food - don't expect frills or schmoozy waiters associated with Italian dining 'California Style'. Nor should you expect large portions. Italians eat... More
