Eataly is a massive, busy Italian market with multiple restaurants and bars inside. It can feel like it’s mainly for tourists, but there are some great reasons for anyone in the area to come, like sandwiches, seafood or a bottle of $86 imported balsamic that you can’t find at your local grocery store.
