Eatalia, an Italian market, and The Wellness Space health center have signed leases to join the lineup at Waterside Place in Lakewood Ranch.

A Schroeder-Manatee Ranch press release on Tuesday said both businesses are scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2024.

Eatalia specializes in imported meats, cheeses, olives, nuts, bread, fresh pasta and other items. It will have a cold bar with various salad items.

The store bills itself as a place for anyone "passionate about Italian cuisine or anyone looking for a quick, quality-made bite to go."

The release said The Wellness Space will offer an array of services, "including mentoring and meditation with different modalities to create clarity. There will also be private and group coaching services for individuals, couples, family and children, as well as corporate services."

Other businesses on the way, according to the release, are Agave Bandido, a Mexican-American restaurant and tequileria; Deep Lagoon, a seafood & oyster house; Good Liquid Distilling Co., Duck Donuts, Cileone Jewelers, The Black Dog store, which will sell resort wear, and La Chic Boheme, offering spa services and treatments.

“We have gathered the best of the best in local and regional retailers and restaurateurs into a truly unique setting," said Kirk Boylston, president of Lakewood Ranch Commercial, in the release. "A number of additional openings will occur during September and October; the majority of the tenants will be open for business by year’s end."

Correction: The article has been updated to correct the spelling of Eatalia.
