Your Eyes

Are just as important

Your Eyes

We all know that the way to the soul is through the eyes not the mouth.

EATaliano is proud of our mixologists and their signature cocktails, ask them if there’s anything off menu – perhaps something homemade like a one-of-a-kind Italian margarita or a pecan-infused bourbon. Our bar is an experimental center of interest. We’re here to help patrons get to know their palate, enjoy a new dessert drink and most of all enjoy!

Chef Marcello

Is the best chef

Chef Marcello

“A tavola non si invecchia!” At the table with good friends and family you do not become old. These are the words by which Chef Marcello Najm guides his new restaurant, Eataliano Kitchen. As a Sicilian, he knows the value and importance of the table and the magic it provides for all those seated around it.

As a long-time staple of Italian dining in Atlanta, Chef Marcello has enjoyed success for over 32 years in the city with Marcello’s Pizzeria & Trattoria in Buckhead.

Anchored in Brighten Park, just off of Briarcliff Road, Chef Marcello offers signature pizzas, alongside traditional pasta dishes and a lovingly-curated wine selection. “Come dine with us al fresco, enjoy our atmosphere, our food and our wine,” Marcello says with a big smile, his eyebrows raised and a hearty laugh. It’s clear, Marcello is excited about EATaliano’s future and what his table can offer the community.

“Italian cuisine is like classical music we’re not the composers but we’re definitely the conductors.”
