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.
Eataly is developed 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 is a single restaurant for each one 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. Let’s show what Italians are good at!
Now you know where to buy the best box of pasta to bring home (please, PLEASE don’t buy that in the souvenir shops in the center)
Take Metro B to Piramide,follow signs for the Air Terminal and go all the way through the tunnel. Also urban trains 1, 3 and 5 stop there.
A smaller Eataly recently opened in a more central place in Piazza della Repubblica (if you have time I suggest you to visit the Ostiense one! It’s way better).
