Four of us were at dinner. One dinner came 20 minutes before everyone else’s. The other 3 dinners 2 were hot one was not. Dishes not cleared until we asked between dinner and dessert. Not the usual Eataly experience
I eat there a lot with different friends ... we all enjoy the food and the patio. It was really windy but the staff and patrons just dealt with it. An empty wine glass was blown across the table! Seriously windy. We had a fine time and enjoyed our meals.
Fun location and beautiful day to sit outside. This is the second visit to this Eatly location. I was giving Eataly a second chance after a poor first experience. I think the second visit was worse. First visit was pasta that was pricey and bland. Second visit we decided to try for pizza. Food was also pricey and bland. Pizza was soggy and lacked flavor. The service was prompt and the Limoncello spritzer was very good. Problems are with the food quality. Too bad, this is a fun location and we were looking for a go-to spot for lunches before Red Sox games.
Birthday weekend in Boston!
Great food and great location, the pizza is amazing
Food, service, ambiance were all fine. Just one quibble, the hostess was a bit attitudinal.
35th anniversary. Food was good. Arancini were small and could have been hotter and come with a small bowl of red sauce, without an extra charge. Papardelle with mushroom raging was excellent!
Service and setting were very nice. The food was quality was uneven.
An outdoor dining oasis. You can sit outside and imagine you are in any city in the world. Great, accommodating servers like Sara and Eduardo make this place pasta happiness
This was such a perfect dining experience for a lovely fall evening. The food and beverages were outstanding, our server was awesome, and the ambiance was incredible. I am already planning a return visit while the weather is still good.
We arrived at Il Patio on time for our reservation only to find out the entire patio was reserved for a private party. The staff were unapologetic and claimed they called even though I had no missed call or voicemail. They were incredibly unprofessional.
Lovely lunch! Beautiful setting, perfect heirloom tomatoes, excellent service.
Bread for the table retrieved directly from refrigerator and brought to our table along with an olive oil that had a very sharp aftertaste.
Under cooked Arincini without much flavor for an appetizer.
Husband enjoyed his bolognese.
Daughter had beef filled ravioli which was just ok, not warm enough.
I had roasted eggplant ravioli which had not been drained adequately, no flavor, just a couple of cut up tomatoes tucked in and it too was not an adequate temp.
Food brought to our table by person other than the waiter, and as so often happens…no one checks back to see if everything is ok, if anything else is needed.
Asked for check which then took another 15 minutes…
Eataly needs to just stick with being a market and forget trying to be an Italian restaurant.
Would skip and head to the North End for sure.
Not worth the money
Very nice set up for outdoor dining. Great cocktails. Enthusiastic service.
But the food wasn’t quite as good as on previous visits - pasta was undercooked (beyond al dente) and some of the focaccia on the salumi board was too hard to eat. Also my pasta arrived 10-15 minutes before my dining companions pizza, which wasn’t ideal.
Oysters were fantastic. Also had the Cacio De Pepe and a salad that were outstanding.
Good food, good seating in Patio, food quality as expected very good… unfortunately drinking one alcoholic is none not even sparkling water or coke
Food was delicious. Service was good but food was slow. Would go back
It was raining so we ate inside. Food was very good as was service. Noisy inside but otherwise great.
Food was good but some of the items that were fried were dried out. Also the glass of wine was half full which should have been noted.
Food was below average
Our server was great but food delivery was uneven.
The Marinara pizza was too soggy.
We’d planned to eat in the patio but our group of 6 ended up on the mezzanine by the escalators. It was very open and felt physically distanced enough. Food was delicious!
Fantastic service! Amazing food! Awesome environment! Cannot wait to come back
While it's all on a patio on busy Boylston Street just outside the Prudential Center, it's still a great place for happy hour. The cocktails are delicious and strong enough, and the Shuck-a-Buck oyster special is the big draw for us. We also split the Cavoletti salad (6 stars if I could), and a wood-fired pizza. Perfect meal!
A beautiful garden right in the middle of the city! Food drinks and atmosphere all fabulous
Had an awesome time! Oysters were delish (+ if you go during Happy Hour they are $1), cocktails were fun and refreshing, staff super friendly attentive, patio so cozy and colorful; we felt transported from Boylston Street's sidewalk to a Summer Soiree in Italy. No, really! We had too many oysters and bread to order anything but the dishes and pizzas we saw at other tables looks ahhhmazing! Highly recommend and can't wait to be back.
Excellent. Loved the food. Server was nice
Delightful staff, delicious food, great atmosphere!
Great patio food was great!
While our food arrived at different times, because it is crafted in different kitchens, it was cold and without much flavor. We asked for a couple of common items* which were unavailable and almost like we ignorant to ask. It took a long time to engage with any staff. The events/specials listed on table placards weren't available in a couple of cases. The outdoor seating and ambiance still allowed us to enjoy our time together.
*to swap out a pasta style on a dish and if there were any sides or appetizers with a meatball option
The patio is a great little setup. However, they haven’t quite figured it out. The food comes from the different restaurants inside Eataly, and will come at different times. Pizza from one place, chicken from another, etc. It took 30 mins to find out if they could make an Old Fashioned and then another 15 to retrieve a Peroni after they decided they could not. Better outdoor dining options in Boston, and you’re better off just going to one of the indoor options if you’re looking for the Eataly experience
Excellent mixed drinks and a great selection of wine and ciders. The patio space is great, perfect for a summer afternoon/evening. The food is tasty although not particularly creative.
Donye the waiter was great. He was attentive and quick.
We always go to Eataly because the food is really good. We tried Il Patio yesterday. The pasta which my daughter ordered was really good. However, the 2 pizza pies which I and my other daughter ordered arrived really late. We asked the waiter to check and in one minute, they gave us 2 cold pies. It looked like they forgot to serve the pizza. We will still go back to Eataly but we prefer dining inside where the kitchen is closer.
Great place to meet people for lunch in the sun, and then enjoy a walk down Newbury towards the park
I had high expectations. Everything was just okay. It was mentioned that food will come out a different times because there’s separate kitchens for pizza, pasta etc. Pizza came out first, not the best. It was about 10 minutes later until we all got our food. Not hot, tasted like it was sitting out. I got the Quadrati, spinach and ricotta ravioli; small portion, ravioli had
very little filling. I was still hungry. I wanted to order dessert but I spent way too much money on a dinner that was just okay. Not worth it.
Lovely outdoor space, great food, goof service. What’s not to love.
Great drinks and atmosphere… perfect for getting together with friends!
The food was ok but overpriced. Not much variety. Nothing super special. I expected more. Molecola us underwhelming. Tutto sommato, molto generico.
