While pizza and pasta are just the tip of the Italian iceberg, there is a reason these two culinary staples are the most beloved exports from Italy. Both can be found at this restaurant, with seasonal selections just steps away from where Eataly’s expert pasta chefs and dough-slinging pizzaioli (pizza makers) create dishes before your eyes. Reserve on Opentable.
Il Pastaio offers fresh, housemade pasta by the bowlful, prepared daily by Eataly’s very own pastai who knead, roll, cut and form each shape from scratch according to artisanal pasta-making traditions. From the slow-roasted veal-filled agnolotti del plin of Piemonte to the saffron-enriched malloreddus of Sardegna, paired with a unique selection of Italian wine and beer by the glass. Walk-ins only.
Sunday-Thursday: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Friday-Saturday: 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
