It was our 10th Anniversary and we expected a more romantic and exotic atmosphere, but it was a casual and disco-like environment with. Dancehall feel and noise level. Not what I would expect when you pay $60 for a $20 bottle of Prosecco. The food was quite delicious was adequate service. If, dine again it will be just an ordinary day, I will dress extremely casual. The pasta counter restaurant downstairs is better suited for fine dining.

Went for the first time last night. Since it was the rooftop I was actually expecting it to be open air, which it's not. So if you are not doing indoor dining yet, take note. It was also a little warm on a pretty cool night, even with fans going.

The space itself is very pretty and for those who like to post on Instagram and elsewhere, you'll find lots of opportunities. The tables are well spaced and there are wall dividers next to them, which we appreciated. The staff remains masked (our waiter was very attentive), which is also good. I wish though that they would enforce for anyone not eating or drinking at their tables that they need to remain masked, especially since it is indoors.

We started with the beet salad and the bread by Otto. The salad was one of the most beautiful we had ever seen: such great colour! It also had a lot of texture and flavour. I think it was our favourite dish of the meal. The crusty bread was also really good and they didn't bring it sliced, which we realized we smart. We would have eaten a lot more of it with the butter and pesto it came with. My friend ordered the pork skewers and said they were kind of overcooked. I had a vegetarian pasta (with ricotta). It was good, but not amazing. There was a lot of tomato sauce and the dish could have done with more flavour.

I would go back but I'd like to try the Patio restaurant outside next time.

Lovely rooftop bar with top-notch ambiance. The food was solid (but nothing special), but the cocktails were fantastic and very unique. You’re definitely paying a significant up charge for the rooftop experience.

The fan blowing was very cold. The server was not attentive at all. Had to ask a million times for someone to find him. Skewers and ricotta balls were excellent. Everything else was mediocre.

Venue was gorgeous, no complaints there. Food was ehhh. The menu was not very large and the pasta section was pretty small for a restaurant literally inside Eataly. The only thing I even liked on the menu was the steak and the potatoes that came with it were better than the steak itself. Overall I think they should look at expanding their menu.

The only con is that the kitchen closes by 10 which was a bummer on a Friday night.

The restaurant for all its hype was disappointing. The decor was tasteless with innumerable plastic flowers making the place look inherently cheap. On a hot 90 degree day, the fan above us didn't work (the server assured us that he has never seen it work). Food was OK but nothing special. Would not recommend this place at all.

Honestly was pretty underwhelmed. I thought an Italian place would have more than 4 pastas on the menu, and some more traditional ones at that. I'm not asking for butter noodles or fettuccine alfredo lol but the 4 options they did have were pretty obscure and not as flavorful as I was hoping. We had the lamb ragu and chitarra with pancetta and fava beans and yeah it was just okay. Also I would not recommend going if its anything above 75 degrees because while they have some fans running it was uncomfortably humid and hot up there, couldn't stay for very long.

You feel rushed because they say you only have 1 hour 30 mins. From being seated the waiter arrived 16 mins after. The food then comes out in 15 mins after. Food was good but warm would
of like it hot but Calamari was a little salty. Loved the overall service and experience and atmosphere. In the summer they have the fans on so you’ll be kinda hot

The food was absolutely incredible. Do yourself a favor and order the seared artichokes appetizer. The waiters went out of their way to be helpful and were nothing short of wonderful.

I'm only deducting a star because the table was placed in such a way that the sun was blasting us which, on a 92 degree day, is no joke. It's our mistake trying to go to a rooftop restaurant on such a hot day, but I figured a restaurant of this caliber had thought through how to make the area more comfortable in the heat. It's *really* hot up there which made the experience slightly less enjoyable. But the food and service more than made up for it.

I am an Eataly fan. I do almost ALL of my food shopping there. Have eaten outdoors at all temperatures.
BUT
We should have been informed before hand that there was no AIR CONDITIONING!!
What were we to to on a hot Sunday? Start searching for another place to dine?
So, we suffered, and one of the parties has health issues. Not okay.
The food was extraordinary as well as the service.
They should post on their website and inform guests when they reconfirm that on hot days there is no ac.

First off, this is an absolutely beautiful rooftop location that is wonderfully decorated. Given covid, I have been extremely cautious about my outings, but felt very comfortable while dining here. Tables were more than appropriately spaced out, with barriers in-between each. Our waiter was outstanding, so patient and really took care of us (I have several food allergies and he double checked with the kitchen to make sure what I was getting was safe). Only downfall I found was the pricing, as portions were rather small for the high cost. Will definitely return!
