Great authentic Italian food and drink,
Service always outstanding! Next to being in Italy the best prosciutto, mozzarella and friti appetizer ever!

Food was good although my waitress forgot to place one of the dish in. Steak tartare was delicious! Other than that, service was decent!

Not sure what is the hype. We were celebrating our 1st anniversary and decided to go to Eataly. We ordered the Parmagiano Pizza and Pomodoro Gnocchi. The food came quickly but was lukewarm and very passable. Should've gone someplace in Little Italy.

Excellent pasta. However, it was casually plopped on the table while we were midway into the appetizer.

Wait staff, however, willingly returned it to the kitchen, and reheated when we had finished the first course.

Server brought complimentary bread and olive oil, we asked if they can bring olive oil and he said no. We ordered mushroom pasta and they brought it out cold and undercooked. When we asked the server why it was undercooked and cold, he said that was the best pasta they have on the menu and we should order something else. Worst experience. We also felt like we were sitting in a grocery store.

Reception took for ages despite having booked. Biggest complaint is that we couldn't have a coffee at the table!! Not good. Also we selected a starter but one guest's main course was delivered ahead of the arrival of the starter.

It was my first time at Eataly, and unfortunately, I have to say that it is overrated. The menu is limited (e.g. no deserts at all), the food is not tasty, and overall, it is pricey. The only positive was the service.

Disappointing. You can't fault the quality of the ingredients, but every dish has something missing.
The burrata was a lump of cheese with a drizzle of olive oil on it, no effort at presentation. Add a slice of tomato and a drizzle of balsamic or something. Steak tartare was a heavy, oily mess that at first I thought was a spoonful of ragu on a plate. It tasted only of tomato, no finesse. The arancini need a sauce, not just smothered in grated cheese. Tasted slightly burnt, as if the frying oil was old.
Tagliatelli with mushrooms was good, generous, earthy mushrooms. Sauce on the gnocchi was heavy, partly split. Gnocchi themselves were a bit doughy. Disappointing to have to go to other sections to get coffee and dessert.
Service was attentive and timely.

Front of house was slow to seat us, especially given we had a reservation. Brought the wrong kind of pizza by mistake—it happens.

Weirdest experience was that we couldn't order a coffee after the meal. Apparently the restaurant doesn't serve coffee. You have to leave the restaurant and order from one of the cafes in the store. That was annoying, but also odd given that the menu is mostly carbs.

We weren’t checked often so we ended up caliing for different staff. And we have a reservation but the lady infront entertained the guests without reservation??What is the point of having a reservation then? We were a bit disappointed, I thought my guests will be as delighted as I was telling them about Eataly.

Food and service was good! My only comment is for open table to clearly relay to its partners how the open table cheque works, I redeemed my points for cash (cheque sent to me) and was going to use them for part of my bill. I was told that they La Pizza La Pasta have not been informed about this by open table and can’t use it. I believe this is part of he open table app/program and therefore should be usable to all partners booked from open table.

Food was great, service not so much - no one ever came to deliver water, after 10 minutes we asked for water and then I one ever came back to ask us to order … lots of people working walking by… had to stop a manager to order after 15 minutes sitting there … pretty surprising really — the food was great once we were able to order …

The food tasted great. Fresh ingredients put together really well. Only disappointment is the the Pizza came a full 10 minutes before the other entree. They apparently come from 2 different kitchens. Since the pizza only takes 90 seconds to cook, perhaps they should prepare the pizza but not put in oven for 8 minutes so meals arrive within 2 minutes of each other.

Overall, everything was good, but nothing stood out as exceptional. Food was mediocre, and the ambiance of the place felt like it was trying too hard.

I was hoping to try the carbonara dish, but they only have it in a large portion for $48 and it is made with rigatoni and not the usual spaghetti or fettuccine. I asked if they could make a smaller portion or put it on a bed of spaghetti and they were not able to, which was disappointing.
I think this is a good place to try once, but I am not sure I will be a repeat customer.

Not worth the hype
The best part of the whole meal was walking through the market leading to the meal. Unfortunately, the meal was just average and really didn’t stand out as being extraordinary.

Pizza was cut disproportionately; hardly any cheese; only used a single leaf of basil (it was burnt to a crisp); had to send the whole thing back

Wine was sour

Pasta dishes were okay; ravioli was over cooked

Service was the only redeeming quality

Will not be going back any time soon

It was a very nice meal, the wine by the glass is a bit small compare to other restaurants. We have pizza and pasta and it was like in Italy!! And we lived in Rome many years, so keep cooking like that!

At the beginning the hostess forgot to gave the menus and it’s took Time to have a contact with dôme one!

We ordered two drinks that we never received!

We ordered a plate of pasta and a pizza. The guy told us that it may not be served at the same moment because it’s cooked in two different kitchen. He told us few minutes! More
Than 15 minutes for me it’s very long!

More than that we asked for a bottle of wine and not received the one wrote in the menu and tried to have explanations but again the guy Forgot to get back to us!

A chance that the meats were very good.

I brought my Four girls and 6 granddaughters to Toronto for the weekend.
Our server took a break between our dinner. Drinks were missed, one order was wrong and Bill was not correct. I was charged for 2 bottles of wine,, we had one and another person had one glass of wine and charged for two. Took a very long time to get our Bill and then to straighten it out. This we paid extra for parking.

This was my first visit. At the waitresses's suggestion two of us shared a pizza and pasta (good idea!). The pizza was really good but wasn't as hot or crispy as I would have liked, but the taste was excellent (Genovese pizza), and we had the mushroom pasta - which was extremely good. All in all a good experience. Lacking a bit of ambiance and when it got busy it was really loud even with spaced out tables. It was "wine Wednesday" so special price oh half litres. We shared the Chianti - very good.
