The VERY best Italian style pizza in the entire US. Although Chicago offers a good food (deep dish) and NY/Boston have the best American pizza, nothing compares to Italian style pizza like eatalian and their rock pizza. The gelato is quite good as well.

We took a party of 10 of us there for dinner and it was the perfect place. We had three kids and their family along and the place is perfect as it's open, plenty of room between you and others so the kids squirming didn't bother anyone. Now for the good part, the food. There is a broad selection of... More

This place is a hole in the wall. It looks like a warehouse from the outside but it's actually one of the best Italian restaurants in the area. Their pizzas, pastas, dishes and desserts are all DELICIOUS. We go all the time and not only their food is good but their service too. I recommend capricciosa pizza, but everything else... More

Location is in an industrial area in Gardena. There is valet parking and street parking. The noise level gets pretty loud. Pizza is the closest we've found to the thin crust pizza in Italy, but still not as good. Pasta dishes are also good, only suggestion is they should throw in a little more pasta, it's on the skimpy side.... More

OK, so we have heard a bunch of people speak about this place and finally made it. It is in an industrial area (nice one), but fairly easily found (used Waze to get there). The restaurant is very open and has windows into the areas where they make cheese, pasta, and their desserts. The kitchen is also open as well.... More

Eatalian is a hidden gem in Gardena. At first you wonder if you're in the right place but once you enter the warehouse, you quickly learn you're in the right place. The food, particularly the thin crust pizza, the gnocchi and the ravioli are phenomenal. I highly recommend this hidden gem.

Our friends told us so much about Eatalian and we finally got the chance to try today. We know it will get busy during lunch time so we came at around 11am since they open at 9am. Staff are very friendly but food was just average. We ordered 8 Gi pizza, gnocchi al ragu, penne speck e tregiviano. Pizza and... More

My family and I just came back from Italy and tried EaItalian at a friend's suggestion. Margarite Pizza was great. Warm seafood salad was to die for. My girls enjoyed the Panna Cota Gelato.

I love this place. It's totally a hidden gem in a random warehouse in Gardena, but it's lovely. Came here years ago with one of my best friends, and I was so impressed by our dinner. We had the margherita pizza (the true test of any good pizzeria) and a tagliatelle in ragu (meat sauce). Both were tasty but the... More

Set in a warehouse environment makes this place a different type of atmosphere to eat in. Would recommend everyone to try it at least once. The food and service is great and have not been disappointed yet. A fun place to eat.
