The Los Angeles Eataly, located in the northeast corner of the Westfield Century City mall, opened on Nov. 3 with pasta-ribbon cutting by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.

Eataly  has locations in New York City, Chicago, Boston, Italy, and now Los Angeles, Century City.
The Italian company was brought to the Americas in 2010 with the help of Mario Batali, Lidia and Joe Bastianich and Adam and Alex Saper.
Eataly is not a chain, it's a family, and each location is distinct and highlights the city and people who reside there.
  The large-scale Italian marketplaces, which include restaurants, cafes and markets, are like Disneyland for Italian food lovers. Imagine giant rooms full of fresh pasta, bubbly pizzas, rounds and rounds of cheese, baskets full of fresh bread and walls lined with bottles of wine stacked to the ceiling.
Salumi and Formaggi
Eataly founder Oscar Farinetti said he’s been thinking about an L.A. location since opening the first Eataly in Turin, Italy, in 2007. Lidia Bastianich and her son Joe, as well as chef Mario Batali (Joe and Batali are partners in the L.A. Mozza restaurants along with Nancy Silverton), are all partners and collaborators.
There are now 13 locations in Italy, four U.S. Eatalys, and multiple iterations around the world for a total of 39. The next U.S. location will be in Las Vegas.

Eataly has also announced plans to open its first Canadian location in early 2019 as an anchor tenant of the newly renovated Manulife Centre in the heart of Yorkville. Eataly, a vibrant Italian food marketplace including a mix of food markets, restaurants, and eateries will span three stories for a total space of 50,000 square feet.
