ITA Kitchen announces opening date for E. Moriches spot on the water


The much-anticipated opening of ITA Kitchen in East Moriches is upon us.

Salvatore and Christina Sorrentino, the husband-and-wife ownership team from Huntington behind the Italian restaurant, have just announced a May 26 opening.

They will start taking reservations on OpenTable starting this Thursday, May 18.

ITA Kitchen has taken over the former Coral Tapas & Wine Bar spot on Atlantic Ave., right along Moriches Bay. The new spot will boast 360-degree views of the water.

This will be the third ITA Kitchen on the island.

The first one opened in Bay Shore back in 2019. The other one recently launched in Garden City South last year.

Using his over 20 years of experience in the restaurant game, Sal’s eclectic menu is made up of a number of creative dishes, such as pesto risotto balls; chicken burrata Caprese; four-cheese mac and cheese; meatballs the “size of softballs” filled with veal; and homemade ricotta gnocchi.

The couple will be using the new East Moriches location to serve “modern Italian fare while focusing on contemporary hospitality,” they had previously told Greater Moriches.

“This space will be an experience like no other on the east end.”
