    Everything here looks great! I had a Brando pizza and it was very well done! Capuccino was good and the Croissant with Nutela was delicious. It doesn't look as good as it is!

    it is a food factory: making fresh cheese, dough, sauces, pasta, and gelato. The delicious pizza is super thin crust, which is great because you can eat more of it since it's not so filling. Read more

    Cool industrial feel. Pizza just like what I had in Italy. Artisan beers, pricey but worth a try. My group loved all their pasta and seafood dishes. Easy to miss the location so drive by slowly!

    Authentic Italian all around. They make their own pasta and gnocchi. Their ingredients are fresh and clean. The gnocchi is my favorite. We always share an arugula pizza as an appetizer. Delicious.

    The house cake is delicious, very much like a tiramisu but with crunchier layers. Great selection of desserts, would come here just for the sweets.

    Best pizza in great LA. I tried all their pizza (I'm not kidding...) and there isn't even one that I didn't like. My 2 cents is: no matter how much you like their pizza... leave some room for gelato!

    Eatalian Café seems perpetually packed with locals clamoring for well-cooked Neapolitan pizzas and freshly-rolled pasta dishes such as spinach and ricotta tortellini or potato gnocchi with beef ragú.

    This is my new fave spot.. I'm not a big fan of Italian food but this place turn it around.. Their panna cotta is to die for 😍😍😍

    Sporting thin crust, Neopolitan pizzas, Eatalian was the progenitor of many authentic Neopolitan-style pizzas joints that eventually opened around town. Read more

    Parking is a challenge at lunch, however the modern vibe makes this place great for lunch. Try the Penne alla Boscaiola, just light not overly creamy. Don't miss your gelato before heading out!

    the Greca pizza is where it's at! you can't go wrong with the gelato either every flavor I've had has been delicious.

    The capricciosa pizza is excellent. However, unless you've got a small appetite or are going to share with someone, its probably not a wise idea to get one of them.

    I haven't had Italian this good since the last time I was in Italy. The pizzas are great with a tortilla-thin crust and authentic toppings, and the hand-made pastas are just like the stuff Nonna made.

    It's all about the Gitana pizza. We have been here maybe 15 times and have had the gitana 15 times...along with just about everything else on the menu. It's like we are back in Italy...

    So many things I love about this place. Amazing pizza, delicious pastas, and so authentic! You cannot go wrong here. Now if they would just get the okay from the city to let you bring wine in.

    Who would have thought one could transform an industrial warehouse into an inviting, delicious, diverse ltalian eatery. Casual date location approved.

    Pizzas, pastas, beer, everything. Friend had chance to work for them for their cheese plant and the owner is just as awesome as the food is!

    The Pizza is really thin but full of flavor. I recommend the "Rock" pizza. Also, the gelato is very rich so a small cup will be enough, unless you have a very "sweet tooth."

    Love the pizzas but the Apricot crostini was amazing! Ask for a scoop of PannaCotta gelato on it. Guy will look at you like you're crazy. Guess they don't do A La Mode in Italy! It was yummy.

    Authentic and right next to Compton. Very unassuming from the outside but once inside, you can smell Italy from La! Try the gnocchi.

    Beer and wine only. You can not go wrong with any of the pizzas . . . and save room for gelato!

    It's like eating REAL authentic Italian food with ur eyes closed! coz the surrounding area is sorta ghetto. Judging by all the industrial old school businesses around, you would never venture inside!

    Marvel at the enormous size of the Parma ham calzone. It's pulled from the brick oven charred and crackling, packed with porcini mushrooms and draped in ribbons of prosciutto. Read more

    They open at 7am for breakfast but to beat the lunch crowd, don't go later than 11:30am or come after 2pm
