Amazing food and quality Italian groceries! However, this place is always packed, and you almost feel as if you're being herded between areas. That said, if you're willing to fight the crowds, it's well worth it.Recommended for:

Let me start with the easy part. The food. Delicious. Incredibly fresh, simple, authentic Italian food. The prosciutto bears almost no resemblance to the dried out stuff we get at the grocery store. Grocery store sushi is to grocery store prosciutto as the best sushi you've ever had is to their prosciutto.
It is harder to describe the ambiance. It is set up like an Italian marketplace, with a number of independent shops, cafés, and restaurants - only they are not independent. We got there, put our name on the list for the pasta/pizza restaurant, and then went to have some antipasti in another area while we waited. The waitstaff is extremely helpful and happy to boot. An excellent experience all around.Recommended for:

Oh my goodness! Amazing! Like a traditional Mediterranean market done up in a BIG New York City way! A huge space with just about anything you could want, so massive they have several restaurants inside the shop to chooses from!
I was in the city and looking for somewhere to go for dinner. I checked my Gogobot iPhone app and saw the reviews for Eataly and had to check it out!
Thanks so much Gogobot users for such an amazing experience!Recommended for:

This place is amazing! It has an incredible selection of Italian/Mediterranean gourmet food (pricey, of course), plus cool kitchen items and cookbooks. Several eating areas are placed within the market where you can eat food that is sold here and drink some wine. It is popular, so it gets crowded and noisy.Recommended for:

Love going here for a cheese plate and glass of wine for happy hour. The makeshift restaurants inside are ok but not amazing. This is just a really cool place to stroll through. It's a full on Italian market and is fun to browse and see what is available. There's a biergarten upstairs but get there early. There's a pretty long wait in the evenings.Recommended for:

If you love Italian food and coffee, come here! If you plan to eat here, I would wall to the different restaurants first, pick one, and put your name down. During the time that you're waiting to be seated, you can walk around the different mini markets. There's so much here in one building, it's awesome! You can also watch them make fresh pasta, sold for you to take home or to the restaurants to serve!
My friend and I went to the Pizza and Pasta redtaurant. We were seated upstairs which had a great view below of the staff making pizza. They're so fast and it comes out of the oven within minutes!
I loved my lamb gnocchi. mmmmm. Came with bread and olive oil (free before our food came out).Recommended for:

Right across the Flatiron building, i bumped into here after the building and wanted to have a coffee. End up i don't know what to choose, it is a cafe cum restaurant cum desert bar cum winebar cum sandwitches, fresh market... etc they are almost everything about Italian food. All looks greaat, it's a must go place in NYC

Eataly is the ultimate Italian experience in New York City! It is a marketplace and restaurant, and offers wine and food tasting as well as cooking classes. It’s great for everything from souvenirs to authentic meals, and is guaranteed to please the whole family. The only downfall is that it can be a bit buys on the weekends, so expect crowds!Recommended for:

An impressive restaurant and market serving all things good and delicious from Italy. From gelatos to prosciuttos to cappuccinos, you'll find fresh goods to fulfill your Italian cravings.Recommended for:

"Eataly, the largest artisanal Italian food and wine marketplace in the world, is finally here in New York. Two years after Oscar Farinetti opened his groundbreaking food and wine market in Turin, Italy, he has teamed up with Mario Batali, Joe Bastianich, and Lidia Matticchio Bastianich of Batali-Bastianich (B&B) Hospitality Group to transform a 50,000 square - foot space in the Flatiron District into New York City’s premier culinary mecca.
The marketplace located at 200 Fifth Avenue (the former Toy Building) is the city's ultimate destination for food lovers to shop and taste and savor – an extravaganza includes a premier retail center for Italian delicacies and wine, a culinary educational center, and a diverse slate of boutique eateries. This gourmand's delight features cured meats and cheeses, fruits and vegetables, fresh meats, fresh fish, handmade pasta, desserts and baked goods and coffees."

If I would have a limitless pocket, I would eat at Eataly as often as I could. Eataly takes me back to my European motherland, with its enticing foods, rich meets, exotic seafoods, authentic pasta, divine pastries and spreads and so much more. If you're planning a fancy dinner date or a special holiday meal, than you have found your place. You can't go wrong with this Mario Batali creation!Recommended for:

People seem to love this place or hate it...I love it and do some of my food shopping here. Some things are pricey but other items are very fairly priced. They have the best ravioli I've had anywhere. I really like their meat department, great produce department and awesome cheese and cold cut selection.Recommended for:

What would a recreation of an Italian piazza look like in New York City?
Meat, pasta, vegetables, bread and seafood have their own unique section of the store, along with a mix of restaurants and cafe's. There is a central gathering area to have a glass of wine and meet with friends. All together this creates a sort of emporium for specialized Italian goods right in the middle of New York City.Recommended for:

I love Eataly. You can wander around here for hours exploring all of the different foods, restaurants, shops, etc. Have a glass of wine at the wine bar, or lounge around the rooftop. Shop the market, or have fresh pasta made to order. A little bit of Italy in the middle of New York City!
