The restaurant has a nice concept of stationing a restaurant inside an Italian mini market. While the food is average, the service was good. It's a fun place to eat.

Every time I go I like this place more and more. The pizza and pasta are perfectly baked and cooked. It is a place where Al dente really is done al dente. The rotisserie chicken was crispy on the outside while juicy on the inside. Oh ya, and don't forget to have an expresso on the way out. It is by far the best one I have had in Dubai.

It can be noisy depending when you go.

Nice concept but impractical payment structure where you have to get up from your table to order coffee or deserts and pay for them at a different station. The pizza was marginal and the pasta overdone. Terrific service from staff.
I am not sure eating in a supermarket is what I had looked forward to but if that is your objective you are indeed in the right place. You do get the feeling of gourmet but when delivered to the table the whole experience becomes overrated.
A wonderful concept for bringing together all things Italian. Lower your culinary expectations and you will have a perfectly good time. Perhaps you should buy the fresh Mozzarella, the bread and take it home with you. Don't forget the Italian chocolate.

Went to Eataly for lunch with my son, what a nice experience, menu was interesting, food was excellent and authentic. Service fast and efficient.
Price are reasonable for the quality. Be back soon as we are in Dubai. Viva Italia.

I went there and immediately felt good.
The space is very bright with lots of light.
The areas are well divided.
I tried a salad and it was really amazing, also had the opportunity to try a pasta and I liked it a lot.
On the menu side, there should be more variety on the menu especially for pizzas and pastas.
also when having a meal the deserts are not served on the table which is bad.

apart from this is a place to return
