About Eatalia


Meet the Owner, Frank Crocetto.


“Great service and great food. I had the veal and it was awesome. The spinach and mashed potatoes that it comes with we’re A+. I would definitely go back and recommend this place.” – Jim S [Yelp]


A simple Northern Italian Cuisine BYOB at 2723 E. Cumberland St. in Fishtown. The spot, beside I-95 and just off Aramingo Avenue. Although casual and inexpensive, Eatalia is authentic. It was opened in 2012 by the manager of Il Cantuccio, a popular Italian restaurant in Northern Liberties.

Frank spent six years working at Old City’s Trattoria del Ghiottone, followed by eight years managing its then-sister restaurant, Il Cantuccio in Northern Liberties. Crocetto enlisted former coworker Ernesto Lima as chef, and they’re executing a slightly more expansive menu of easy-priced favorites. Same menu is on for lunch and dinner; house specialty is black-and-white sesame-encrusted tuna served in orange Triple Sec glaze. [philly.com]
