Eataly is gearing up to open the doors of its first Canadian location next month, and based on the looks of the offerings, you’d best start saving your appetite now.

The long-awaited Italian marketplace is set to open in the Manulife Centre in Toronto, located near Bloor-Yonge, on November 13.

Each Eataly location contains a wide range of restaurants, cafés, to-go eateries, fresh counters, a grocery market with more than 10,000 products, and a cooking school. It was founded — in Italy, fittingly — in 2007, and has since expanded to more than 35 locations around the globe.

Carb-lovers across the GTA have been awaiting the arrival of the massive market for years, with the original projected opening planned for early 2019.

The huge space features pasta stations, pizza parlours, plenty of preserves and jams and jellies. And to top it all off, the smell of bread wafts through the building, carrying across planes of carb-heavy creations.

Shopping at Eataly, the pasta is priced as low as “a dollar, more or less,” and it goes up from there. According to Eataly’s team, the restaurant section of the space uses the highest quality selection they have.
