Eatalia: New Italian BYOB

Frank Crocetto 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 moves out on his own this week with Eatalia, a simple Southern Italian BYOB at 2723 E. Cumberland St. in Fishtown. The spot, beside I-95 and just off Aramingo Avenue (and literally 7 minutes from Center City), previously was Bistro Juliana.

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 (and the priciest dish) is black-and-white sesame-encrusted tuna served in orange Triple Sec glaze, $14 at lunch, $22 at dinner).

It's open from noon to 9 p.m. Monday to Friday, 5 to 10 p.m. Saturday.

Eatalia, 2723 E. Cumberland St (corner of Salmon Street), 215-423-6911., cash-only.
