I was invited to attend the opening of the Park MGM Hotel’s unusual Eataly, a 40,000 square-feet building filled with everything Italian! It was a wonderful afternoon tasting the delicacies, cuisine, and wines of Italy.

I produced travel specials in Italy three times and feel Eataly was reminiscent of their very large markets and outside shopping areas which featured many different businesses in one place.

To provide an idea of the wide extent of food and goods available, I want to mention some details about what you will experience at the Eataly.

There are three Restaurants all specializing in Black Angus beef, beef with a high level of fine marbling, tenderness, age and color from Creekstone Farms, but each restaurant offers different recipes and styles of cooking.

The Manzo (meaning beef) Restaurant is an upscale butcher’s restaurant with an Italian wood-burning grill adding a romantic touch to dining (opening soon). 

The Gran Caffe Milano serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and the La Pizza E La Pasta Ristorante is known for their Napoli-style pizza and al dente pasta.

If you love cheese, this is the place to spend some time! Step over to each of the four Mozzarella Bars and try complimentary tastes from their mega-large blocks of cheese.

You can choose eating Mozzarella alone or they also offer Mozzarella pairings for that melt-in-your-mouth difference with flavors to tempt your appetite!

One of the Mozzarella Bars- Mozzarella Di Bufala Dop uses water buffalo milk from Campania while the second bar- Burrata  prepares the food with stracciatella as an Italian soup or dessert, the third- Stracciatella uses the hand-torn method and the forth- House made Mozzarella hand-pulls the Mozzarella. To an Italian, that does make a difference! The Mozzarella is prepared daily in-house.

Eataly offers so much to the public, this is only a part of what they have to offer. I am preparing another article in order to really tell the whole story!  

Make sure you have a few hours to really experience Eataly, try not to miss any of their unique stops and exciting cuisine. This is Italy all in one place!

Hours: Monday-Sunday from 10 am- 11 pm;

For information, call 702-730-7617. Eataly is located inside the Park MGM Hotel, 3770 S. Las Vegas Blvd.   https://www.parkmgm.com/en/restaurants/eataly.html
