Awful experience, we were forgotten when we were seated and didn't get any help or greetings until 15 minutes of sitting there. Then the menu was lack luster and the drink menu was decent. We placed our order and again a nice long waiting game and they ended up forgetting one of our appetizers. Then when we finally received our main dishes it was so bland and boring looking. They tasted like basic plates of pasta it was awful presentation and overpriced for what it was. I would not recommend this place it's a waste of money and time. Don't let the beautiful entrance fool you.

Outside on Boylston Street, nice plants and umbrellas for shade if needed!
I did reserve ahead at lunch and was glad that I did. Caprese and a pizza was definitely tasty but a bit over priced.
Handsome Italian waiter was a bonus ;))
Service was quick, which was handy as we were limited for time

We got the Margherita pizza, bruschetta and oysters which were amazing! For drinks we got the Limonchella spritz, one in a melon and froze 10/10, and the grapefruit tequila drink which was a 4/10, very bitter. Ambiance was great but service was very very slow. It was a Saturday so it was busy.

Overall, it was a great experience. It was a little disjointed when we first walk in. Somehow we missed the hostess and walked to the back and then had to walk back to the front. I think the hostess saw us walking back but didn't make an effort until the last minute to walk toward us. It was blazing hot out and she directed us to a table in the sun.
I asked for a shaded spot and was told she didn't have in the shade but I spotted two seats in the shade and pointed that out to her. She overlooked moving the seat cushions, so we did them ourselves.
But overall the waiter was terrific and food, as always, delicious.

My wife and I were looking for a great date night spot and this place did not disappoint. It’s easy to for get that this place is technically a chain restaurant. The food was insanely good and the service was great.

We were there to celebrate my wife's birthday and it turned out to be a horrible experience. Other than the manager was super nice and apologized and took care of things, it was terrible. Started from the hostess not seating us for 5-10 mins on an otherwise (almost) empty patio followed by below average service, where the server was more interested in chatting with guests on a particular table. This followed a mixed up order and then getting undercooked pizza and pasta - I feel any of my neighborhood pizza shops do a better job with both! Again, a horrible experience overall. The only saving grace here was the manager as she went above and beyond to take care of the bill for us.

I love Eataly! They've done a great job with Il Patio. FYI If you are going for lunch and prefer shade, go on the early side. We went on a hot day, and the patio was fully shaded until about 1 pm. It was wonderful.

From the appetizers to the pasta dishes, the food was delicious. The environment was also very relaxing. It felt like I was in a garden as we were surrounded by flowers. The waiters were not always attentive - forgetting to clear away dirty dishes and bring a spoon when asked.

Live jazz music nearby which was nice to listen to. The pizza and pasta came out at separate times which was fine but waitress should have informed us as someone had to wait a bit for the other person to receive their food. It was starting to rain a bit and no one seemed to know the policy on what happens if it rains (since this restaurant is entirely outdoors). Good food though and drinks were also great

Excellent service and loved the atmosphere of eating outside. It was perfect for a fun evening out with friends. All of the food was delicious, although it did take a little while and my pasta was on the cooler side- I wonder if they were waiting on my friends' dishes before bringing them all to the table. Despite this, it was still a lovely experience.

If one more person warned us we only had the table for two hours…I would happily given up the table to another party. Our four top had comfortable chairs for two and seating on the granite Pru Center planter with no padding. Dinner was tasty and the parade of humanity headed home from the Sox game was entertaining but we enjoyed Terra upstairs much more. This seemed haphazard

There was a lot of confusion between the server staff, we got so many plates that we didn't order and sent back, which were then sent to other wrong tables..

They acquired a portable wood fired Naples style oven (on wheels!) to make fresh Naples pizza right on the patio. Who could ask for more?

The food and service was very good.
For my surprise they had GF pizza which is rare to find in an Italian restaurant.
The GF pizza was very good and tasty. I totally recommend it. I have intolerance to Gluten not celiac disease so it worked for me.

I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere, but we were a little bit forgotten by the waitress. It's one of those situations where tipping was based on us being nice rather than server performing the job.
