The Eatalian Group has three locations and the hidden gem is exEat located in Gardena, California. From the outside you would think you’re in the wrong place. The very industrial location and bars on the darkened windows imply “keep moving”. But the inside is completely different. A┬álarge space features an impressive espresso bar, gelato and pastry counter. Seating all around is casual and bright. Best of the all, the food is legit Italian and very affordable. It is quite a drive from Redondo Beach, but we’ll be back again. I’m taking my parents here since 40+ years ago they lived blocks from this area.
