Everything was great, as always! Our server was kind and courteous. The meat and cheese platter had an awesome variety of meats and cheeses. The spicy honey spread that came with it was incredible! Our pasta dishes were fresh and perfectly seasoned. The pizza was amazing. And last but not least, the wine went perfectly with everything we had ordered. Always a great time here! Can't wait to come back.

We had a reservation and were promptly seated at a high top table (the only kind available). The menu is limited; we had the classic charcuterie and the mushroom fettucine with black truffle butter. Both were excellent. The chocolate gelato for dessert was intensely chocolate - yum! The barolos are all about $88 a bottle/$22-27 a glass.
The waiter was attentive and helpful.
However, ambiance is a bit noisy and can be distracting as you are sitting in the middle of a very busy market, with people constantly walking by.

The tartare and the egg yolk pasta with truffle were amazing! We got the fettuccine with mushrooms and it was good, but not as good as the egg yolk pasta with truffle. Would come again!

The food and our server were good.The main issue I had was that we ordered a charcuterie board to start and then our mains. About 2 minutes after our board came out my husband’s entry came out. Mine about 3 minutes later. We did not have time to enjoy the app as we needed to eat our entrees so they did not get cold. Also, the wine is very overpriced. P

Mother daughter Black Friday trip. Loved Eataly and had so much fun at dinner. Our waiter Aries was very attentive and recommended a great Chianti. Followed by delicious beef carpaccio, meat and Cheese board, truffle pasta, and pistachio ice cream. A perfect ending for a great trip.

We were in the city for the weekend and decided to book a reservation here - glad we did. We started with the steak tartar - and it was one of the best we’ve ever had. My husband got the steak and I got their fresh, made in-house pasta. Chef’s kiss for both. So flavorful. Then…we rounded out the meal with tiramisu for dessert - creamy, light, perfect after a big meal. Portions are big, service was excellent. Make a reservation - don’t just show up.

The food was remarkable. I am Spanish and visit Italy from time to time and the food compares beautifully. Our server, Hector, was incredible.

This truffle special was overpriced.
The truffles had no flavor.

We dined here pre covid when Eataly had their Truffle dinner and it was amazing. Fabulous ambiance, delicious food, and service was impeccable.
Our dinner was barely edible. Truffle pasta was the best entree. We ordered the Cremea pizza with truffle. It was watery and tasteless. The carpaccio looked like Alpo dog food and was tasteless as well. The chicken was supposed to be lightly fried and yet it was heavily coated and tough.
So disappointed. We were shocked our server didn’t ask us what was wrong with the meal as we barely ate it.
On a different point, the Barolo we ordered was $80 and as we were leaving Eataly, it was on the shelf for $39. That’s quite a markup. And we tipped on it!
