We're in love with foods

  • We love high quality food and drink. We love the stories about it, the people who produce it, the places it comes from. 
Food unites us all
  • Good food brings all of us together, and helps us find a common point of view.We believe that one of the greatest sources of joy is what happens around a dinner table. 
Our passion has become a job

  • We've dedicated our daily lives to promoting a real understanding of high-quality food and drink. How lucky are we that we get to do what we love?
The secret to quality of life? Quality products
  • By creating and offering the best products, we improve our own lives, and bring added value to yours. Enter a world dedicated to quality: that means quality food, quality drink and ultimately quality time.
Our target audience is everyone
  • Whether you're here to buy a loaf of bread, prepare for a lavish dinner or sit down to enjoy a meal, we want this to be your place. We want you to be comfortable, happy, and enriched by every visit. 
Eat. Shop. Learn
  • This is a store with stories. Here, you won't just discover what you love, you'll also learn about what you love.
We're in this together
  • What you choose every day determines what we'll stock on our shelves over time. When you demand quality products, you support the local farmers, fishermen, butchers, bakers, and cheesemakers who produce them. You create a better environment—for eating and beyond. 
Our three promises to you

  1. Choice: We offer a diverse selection of quality food and drink 
  2. Accessibility: We are dedicated to offering the best products at the lowest possible price points. 
  3. Knowledge: We feel that it's not just important that we know everything about what we sell and serve, but that you also learn about the products we are so passionate about. We share with you the stories of the people and places behind all that we offer. The more you know the more you enjoy. 
Your trust is earned everyday

  • In all ways, we promise to be scrupulously honest. We'll never encourage you to buy more than you need or more expensive than you can afford.
The end goal
  • Our goal is to have you as our customer for a lifetime. The easiest means to that end is offering the best food and drink as well as the best environment in which to discover and expand your tastes. 
On that note, we look forward to seeing you again very soon!

Cheese 101

I could definitely see the passion in our presenter. He is clearly very knowledgeable and eager to teach. I think the course could benefit by the use of visuals, photos maybe a few slides. There were times throughout the presentation that the cheese making process was described in great detail but it was difficult to follow and really dragged on. I feel the class could also benefit by placing some more emphasis on some of the more practical information for us as the consumer and slightly less details of the cheese production. We love eataly and love the fact you provide education experiences. We thought our presenter was fully qualified, capable and personable yet the content needs to be edited a bit. Thanks for allowing us to share our thoughts and we look forward to taking more classes in the future!

The historically points that were included during the presentation made the course even more interesting ! The demonstration of how to prepare the food was especially well done and easy to follow! The wine pairing really enhanced the meal which was delicious !!

We learned a lot and my son really had fun! Indeed, we decided to make similar courses a Mother's Day tradition. The class size was perfect to allow ample instructor attention. I enjoyed learning the little pearls scattered throughout the experience.

Awesome class, good good/wine! Only complaint is that the class location was listed as la scuola, but is actually near the meat/seafood counter.

Eataly is a wonderful place with great food and knowledgeable staff. The food was delicious, the service was fantastic, but the class was a two-hour lecture. That was disappointing.

Winter Wine Tasting at BAITA

I thought the class was great. I really loved the wines with the wonderful selection of meats and cheeses. It is interactive so come with questions. One could enjoy the class much better if it were held in a secluded low traffic area or private room. The high noise level is challenging for communication.

I enjoyed the class. I did wish that it was smaller and had more time to explain the cheeses and flavors it could pair with. I would also loved to have tried even more types.
