About Eataly

Eataly is Italy’s world renown gourmet market featuring premium Italian cuisine ingredients. The market and food hall first opened in Turin in 2007. A year later it opened in Bologna, and shortly that same year Eataly opened its first international location. No, not in the US or Europe (those opened starting in 2010 and today keeps globally expanding).

The first international Eataly opened in Asia – Tokyo, in fact. In 2008, Eataly debuted in Tokyo’s Daikanyama, a posh little neighborhood for boutique shops and cafes in Shibuya. While that location no longer exists today, you can still find Eataly in Tokyo’s Nihonbashi and Marunouchi districts with its largest branch inside Tokyo Station.
 

About Eataly in Tokyo Station

Eataly first opened in Tokyo Station as a grab-and-go shop. In 2017, it reopened in the newly renovated Marunouchi Central Underground in an impressive 450 square meter space featuring premium Italian products, food stations, and a sit-down restaurant.

Food stations include a delicious cannoli and crepe area (with a drool-worthy chocolate fountain), a gelato and coffee area, a cheese and charcuterie area offering both cuts to take home for your fridge and packages to take to a picnic, and a focaccia station.

You can pick food from the various stations and have a casual bite in the surrounding high tables. If you want a proper sit-down meal, you can feast on pizza, pasta, and more at their restaurant.

Pizza lovers order a pie in the restaurant. From when it first opened in 2017, the pizzas have greatly improved with a delicious chew to the charred crust and the high-quality toppings. Note that at lunch, each main dish comes with a little salad.

Pastas are another must-try at Eataly’s restaurant. You can taste the quality of the pasta itself with the right amount of sauce incorporated into the dish. Because it is Japan, and the culture of Asian eating is to dine family style, you will also be given small plates to share every order.
