Looking for a fresh, delicious Italian lunch or dinner? EATaliano is a great choice for dining in Brookhaven. Located in the Brighten Park Shopping Center, just a few minutes off I-85, EATaliano is a pleasant surprise for traditional Italian dishes. It is an independent, family-oriented restaurant that has been opened since fall 2016. The restaurant features a nice patio in front for outdoor dining and is decorated throughout with Italian décor for a cozy, comfortable vibe.
I started with the Calamari Friti with was lightly breaded calamari served with marinara and lemon aioli. A good indication of the freshness of their food, it was a great way to begin my lunch. I decided to go with the Meatball Marinara Sandwich, which is a popular menu item and comes with a choice of side salad, house fires or fresh fruits. The sandwich was served very fresh, hot and full of Italian flavor. Very filling and definitely a great choice for lunch. Service was attentive and the server was very helpful in explaining menu options.
Some of their other Artisan Sandwiches include Chicken Cutlet Parmesan, Italian Sausage Panni, EATaliano Muffaletta and Green Market Panni. They also serve fresh specialty pizzas, including vegetarian choices. Entrees include some tempting dishes such as the Chicken Piccata (sautéed chicken breast), Veal Marsla (milk-fed veal scaloppini) and the Ribeye Steak (10 oz. charbroiled ribeye steak).
The space is perfect for large groups of friends or family or an intimate dinner for two. An enthusiast-curated wine list offers the perfect drink to pair with your dinner. Weekends offer live blues or jazz performers to add an extra layer of ambiance to the chill factor and they have a special Sunday Brunch as well.
I look forward to returning and trying some of their other sandwiches, as it was hard to choose one, because they all looked wonderful. They offer a fantastic casual, but upscale atmosphere to enjoy a delicious lunch or dinner with friends.
