Eatalia BYOB Ratings and Reviews
upon entering the doors at the small establishment there were some nice hanging lights the place was empty for a cold weekday night, but the food the service and the ambiance made up for all the rain that was coming down. The fact that thre is a beer and wine place up the street is also another added bonus. The seafood risotto exceeded all my expectations and the lobster ravioli was also delectable and velvety smooth. I cant wait to get back to this restaurant! I may go tonight !!!!
This place is a fun place to meet up with another couple or with friends. I love that it is a BYOB. We tried the special mushroom crepe and the eggplant rollentini. Both were good, although not amazing to be honest. The shell seemed a bit tough to me. Tasty, though. However, I really enjoyed the chicken carciofi (artichoke) that I ordered. It came with sundried tomatoes and artichokes in a light garlic sauce. Very tasty! We will definitely be back. One note - the noise level is pretty loud. My voice was decidedly hoarse the next morning!
We have been coming here for years. Very nice neighborhood restaurant, within walking distance of home. Food is always delicious. Frank, the owner, is very personable and accommodating. The deserts are delicious too. We even had our family Christmas party
at Eatalia one year. Great place , they make you feel like family!!
This is a BYOB restaurant. Everything was great from the ambiance to the food & service, great neighborhood place. The specials were made to order and were delicious. Went here for my sisters Birthday and she ordered the chicken parm it was out of this world, with fresh parm cheese, roasted pepers on top, brustil sprouts & mashed potaoes. I had ribbon pasta with crab meat & shrimp. we shared a Teramisu which was so fresh like grandmom use to make. Coffee, also great. A place you should try.
We had an incredible date night experience. The service was excellent. The gentleman was kind, friendly, helpful and attentive. The atmosphere was inviting and welcoming. The food was absolutely amazing.
I have food allergies and the server made sure I all of my food selections were allergen free.
We will definitely be frequenting this restaurant.
Our experience was delicious as ever. Although I was disappointed that our waiter didn't tell us about all of the specials and that other tables were able to have New York strip steak and the option was not given to us. Also he didn't tell us about the appetizer specials either. Because we were first ones there I felt like we were not given the option and I really wanted the steak too. Of course we will be back because we love this place.
The atmosphere is casual and relaxed. BYOB is a great plus. The food was excellent. Our group of 6 enjoyed everything. We had the scallops wrapped in bacon, arugula salad, and eggplant rollatini for appetizers. Main dishes included the sockeye salmon special with crabmeat, gnocchi, and pasta primavera. The peach gelato was delicious and not overly rich, creating a happy ending to a fantastic dinner.
Everything was excellent. it was not my first time there but this time I decided to go there for my birthday dinner with my husband, who has never been there. It was packed, every table full, but there was a party of about 6-7 very Loud people next to us and we could hardly speak to each other or hear one another. The waitress was aware of the situation and was very kind to try to diffuse the loudness to a bearable level. Another customer with a newborn spent most of her time outside bc it was so loud. It would not deter us from coming back at all. The waitress brought us out complimentary lemoncello on the house from the owner which I thought was a nice gesture! The food was excellent as always!!
I'd say Eatalia is good byo if you live in the neighborhood and dont want to drive or go far. Philly has some of the best Italian restaurants and while this one isn't bad by any means, it's nothing to rave home about. It's very small- maybe 10 tables max. No sign in front of the building so its easy to miss. Not a huge menu (you can check the menu online) we started off with mussels in red as an app, and I will say they were the largest we've had- red sauce was good, but could have used more garlic/seasoning. I ordered a pasta entree and it was just ok- was hoping for homemade pasta and same more flavoring/taste. My husband ordered the veal chop special and same thing- it was just ok, the meat didnt have much flavor. We had a canoli for dessert and I will say it the best thing we had all night. Service was good. All in all its just ok- I dont think its worth all the hype.
The place is small so I would definitely recommend making reservations first. But it was clean quite great service food was delicious and huge portions. The owner was very accommodating. We were a large group for a bridal/bachelorette dinner and he didn't rush us out the door even tho we were there pass closing. We would all go again and definitely recommend!
One of the BEST meals I have ever had!! This gem is hidden in the Fishtown area. You MUST experience or for yourself!! We had the brushetta as an appetizer then the gnocchi and veal as entrees. So delicious!!! Then we had a canolli and BlackBerry gelatto for desert. AMAZING!!!! Highly recommend!!!!
I really want to like this restaurant because it's up the road from me, but the food is not good. The first time I went was last fall and everything was over-salted. For reasons I cannot fathom my boyfriend and I gave it a second chance. We ordered the bruschetta as a starter and we each ordered from the specials; for me the purple potato gnocchi and for him the veal chop.
Let's start with the bruschetta; it's fine. There's not much more to say...you'd have to be malicious to screw up bruschetta. The gnocchi were gluey and flavorless. Our server admitted that it was a new dish that she knew little about except it came with pork on top. Instead they gnocchi were served over the pork with a creamy garlic sauce that was almost flavorless except for the large chunks of anise. I wouldn't have ordered it if someone could have told me their was anise. The pork was plain and un/under seasoned.
My boyfriend's veal chop was...interesting. The cream sauce drizzled over it was sweet. He took his first bite, cut off another piece and offered it to me, then watched as I chewed. "Does that taste like marshmallow to you?" Yes...yes it did. Maybe they were going for a béchamel or something similar and ruined it? Either way, it was ruinous to the chop.
Overall, the food varied from lackluster to bad. Don't waste your money.
(One positive - our waitress was a delight!)
This place used to be our go to Italian restaurant in Fishtown but today was not what we expected. The gnocchi was overcooked in the vodka sauce and the lobster special was $32 and overcooked as well. Supremely disappointing from all of our previous expectations.
