Where Is The Original Eataly?
The original Eataly is located in a dramatic setting – the old Carpano Vermouth factory in Torino (Turin), Italy.
Who Founded Eataly?
Eataly was founded by Oscar Farinetti, an Italian from Alba, Piedmont. He originally called the store ‘Eat Italy,’ and it later became ‘Eataly.’
Eataly is now run by CEO Andrea Cipolloni, who stepped into the position in late 2022 after previously heading up Autogrill. Former CEO Nicola Farinetti (Oscar’s son and previous head of Eataly USA) remains as President. Farinetti had taken over after the departure of Andrea Guerra in 2020 (to be CEO at LVMH Hotel & Hospitalities, and now CEO of Prada).
What Is Eataly’s Mission?
Eataly’s goal is to “gather under one roof high-quality food at sustainable and reasonable prices for ALL, celebrate Italian biodiversity, and create an informal, natural, and simple place to eat, shop, and learn.
If you’ve been to an Eataly, you can probably agree that they’re doing a great job fulfilling their mission!

- Saudi Arabia

New Eataly locations are opening soon, like in California’s Bay Area (Eataly Silicon Valley), and projects are in the works for Eataly USA and Eataly globally.
Some Eatalys have closed in recent years, probably due to the pandemic. For example, the Eataly restaurant in the Mall of Qatar is permanently closed.
