Not the first time we have been in an Eataly, we have been a few times in their Italian stores, in Rome, Turin and on the motorway.
The overall concept is very nice, in my opinion, with all these options and choices from many Italian places, arranged in a way that can remind typical food stores of long time ago and inspire a sense of quality and true food.
However, from concept to realization, sometimes something gets lost.
This isn’t the case for this downtown shop, despite its huge size.
Prime location, large choice of products, nice food at the restaurant we’ve tried (la pizza & la pasta, there are more restaurant inside), nice ambiance, smoothly organized despite the remarkable traffic inside.
Definitely a good ambassador of the Italian style (at least, in the context of food), conveys a way better image than its peers in little Italy that are now almost a caricature of themselves.
