OMG IT’S AMAZINGGGGGGGGGGGG.

First of all, it’s HUGE… I only went once and I need to go back and check everything out. I didn’t go to any of the restaurants, I was actually more interested in the grocery shopping that could be done here since we live in the city. Fiance and I brought back some delicious wine, and I am looking forward to when the beer garden section opens.

I deff suggest it!

I actually dropped in on Sunday and grabbed a map – the place is huge – didn’t eat or buy anything but I told my hubby we must go back.  He’s Italian and we both enjoy good wine, meats and cheeses – soooo happy it is here, nice and close to our apartment so we don’t have to go all the way down to Little Italy for a sandwich!

We live only a few blocks from the Madion Sq Park, so we’ve visited Eataly a few times. So far, we’ve tried the meat, fish, and pizza/pasta restaurants. Their portions are relatively small and they’re pricey. That’s not to say the food isn’t any good, it’s actually delicious. My bf and I spend easily $130+ on each trip (including wine). We have on occasion bought cheese, prosciutto, and bread to just munch on as a snack. You must try their gelato, the sweet milk is my favorite!!

I haven’t been but I have a friend who goes a lot. The consensus seems to be that it’s really, really good, but also pretty pricey. If you’re buying groceries you might want to consider going to Arthur Avenue in the Bronx (near Fordham University). It’s sort of the last “real” Italian neighborhood in NYC and they have lots of businesses where you can buy fresh pasta, biscotti, cheeses, meats, olives etc. for way lower prices than Eataly. They also have some great restaurants- I highly recommend Roberto’s or Zero Otto Nove- INSANELY good!

I went back in November…it’s pretty decent, I had fun but not dying to go back or anything. My mom and I ate at the little pasta cafe part, the pasta was like b+ (nowhere near as good as at Lupa), the pizza was much better. They have a great selection of stuff though so it’s definitely fun to do all your fancy grocery shopping in one. I got a ton of great cheese, plus some fancy food- bring your wallet though lol it’s not cheap!
