A mall dedicated to the cuisine of Italy, Eataly is impressive, overwhelming, decadent, fun, and frustrating all at the same time. The sheer number of humans = not good. The sheer number of olive oil bottles = very good. Prepare yourself to strike a balance between these sorts of extremes, and you'll have a good time. Just don't get too caught up in one place, or at one stand. There are too many nooks and crannies and restaurants and counters to explore. The rooftop beer garden is also great; just know that you have to make a reservation.
