How can I introduce Eataly? Well I’d say that it’s sort of a mall only about food. Here is where you will find every food or drink that the Italian cuisine has to offer. Their motto is “Life is too short for drinking and eating in a bad way”. I could not agree more.
Let’s start saying by something about the building: this was a useless and abandoned huge structure and now it’s a brilliant example of converted modern architecture. Ok, interesting but you’re in a place called EATaly, you’re not there for the structure but to eat! There are a lot of restaurants, bars and lots of spots where you can buy top quality Italian food, a huge selection of wine and beer, kitchen tools, t-shirts with nice and funny slogans and there’s even a culinary school. Let’s show everyone what Italians are good at!
Eataly is located on three floors and every floor has restaurants and food markets. Wanna eat pasta, pizza, meat, fish, chicken, traditional Roman food, gourmet panini or the real piadina from Emilia Romagna? Don’t worry there’s a single restaurant for each of them. But let’s not forget the beer bar, wine bar, two coffee bars (I prefer the one on the 2nd floor), the bakery, chocolate and gelato spots.
Take Metro B to Piramide then follow signs for the Air Terminal and go all the way through the tunnel. Also urban trains 1, 3 and 5 stop there.
They recently opened a smaller Eataly in Piazza della Repubblica.
