    It doesn't get much hotter than Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich's land of magic and pasta. With eight restaurants and a world of retail, Chicago's food scene has been greatly expanded.

    If you like Italian food, this will be heaven for you.This is like a mall just of pasta, gelato, bread, and all kinds of delicious stuff. If it's Italian and you can eat it, you will find it at eataly

    Satiate your truffle cravings at Il Tartufo—Eataly’s truffle-filled pop-up. Order your meal and then choose between add-ons of 4 grams of shaved truffle for $29 or a whole truffle sold for $7 a gram. Read more

    Will satisfy anyone's pallet. There is everything you want here from fish to meats to pizza and specialty cheeses. Wine, coffee, sweets. Great for lunch and dinner! No need to go anywhere else!

    Eataly's hot chocolate has long been a favorite of New Yorkers, and with its arrival in Chicago, it's poised to make an impression here. It's dark, rich and topped with a little whip. Read more

    Standouts from the new menu include the Parmigiana, with thinly sliced eggplant and mozzarella, and the Eggs ‘n Bacon, which even our Italian host agreed was excellent, if very “American.” Read more

    Hit the wine upstairs! So many great options. Also love the Birreria for a bite to eat. Yummy food at Carne and the Pizza area, too. If you go early early or late for lunch is fairly clear of crowds!

    Such an amazing place!! If only the whole group of friends could actually agree when having to chose between: pasta, meat and vegetarian! Please start serving all areas!!

    Really good place, an Italian Market-Restaurant, the concept is really cool because you can stop by for a coffee and u can also buy anything you want.. Plus, you can go upstairs and eat a good dinner!

    The moment I walked in I was overwhelmed. It's like Italy was crammed into a multi-story building on a city block. The pizzas are DELISH and gelato is a must.

    On the pricey side for some things, but the quality and atmosphere are well worth it. Their pastas are perfectly cooked, even the ever-so-simple and satisfying spaghetti chitarra al cacio e pepe.

    Plan to spend at least 3 hours here. If you want pizza and pasta put your name in, go find some antipasta and wine, and wait till your table is ready. After definitely hit up the coffee and gelato

    Seemed to be smaller than the NYC location but the food is still delish! Got lucky with a fresh out of the oven prosciutto mozzarella focaccia bread. Yum!

    A little overwhelming at first, but you'll settle in soon enough. We hit meat & cheese, wine and dessert stations and the pasta restaurant. Great lasagna! Real Italian style food. We'll be back.

    Get in line for the gelato, but upstairs there is even more delicious food. The Nutella bar is a must, especially for the crepe!

    Beer bar! Three Floyds beers like Zombie Dust!. Fried radishes from the Fritto bar is a must try! Fresh mozzarella with san Daniele's prosciutto. Porchetta sandwich better than SF's Roli Roti

    Amazing meal at IL PESCE &LE VERDURE. Grilled octopus was cooked to perfection & the gnocchi was other worldly. Also had oysters, farroto & a bottle of wine. Everything was delicious.

    Nutella bar, lavazza, gourmet groceries and more at this 2 floor place that includes Birreira restaurant like the NYC original but is even bigger!

    So much to get here. Close to michigan avenue. A $2 espresso, very well made albeit pricey desserts, and very good made to order food. If you don't order wine it's a bargain for that area.

    Incredible concept: you can buy while you have lunch or dinner; or eating while you buy its prime Italian items? I take the seafood bar, the Polpo (octopus) was amazing.

    I went in the evening around 9 and it was pretty crowded and full of tourist. There was a long line for gelato but the pistachio gelato was well worth the wait. So don't miss it!

    If you've ever traveled to Italy, you'll appreciate everything Eataly has to offer!!! Also, the butcher shop looked amazing. Can't wait to try the rib roast we purchased for Christmas dinner!!!

    A bit overpriced for the casual dining though would argue that upstairs is generally worth it. Fresh pasta cannot be beat and subscribe to their mailing list for specials.

    The charcuterie and cheese plate is a great deal: $22 for five meats, five cheeses and accompaniments. Also, be sure to try the brioche focaccia and the specialty beers.

    Everything you imagine from an Italian deli and even more than that. On the pricey side but the vastness of produce is unbelievable

    Get the tagliatelle w/ braised short rib. Pasta was perfect al dente, the short rib was tender, and the sauce complemented the dish without overpowering it. High marks.

    Lived up to hype. Went at 11am, wasn't busy. Many meats & cheeses. Bought pastas & sauces. I'll continue going to my fav local spot L'Appetito a few blocks away. L'Appetito is small, cheap, friendly

    Great venue- just overpriced - it is a feast for the senses and your palate will be happy - if you have been to Italy it is a close replicate with American prices

    Glorious! It is something of an expensive tourist trap but the chocolates and la pasta fresca alone are worth the trouble. Do it!

    The Pasta is very good and the gelato is amazing. The food is rather expensive though and it's always very crowded. Fun place to visit though if you like food.
