The long-awaited opening of Eataly at Park MGM has finally arrived.

There has been a lot of buzz about this opening and for me this has been one that I have been looking forward to ever since I first heard it was coming over a year ago.

Eataly is a dream come true for a true Italian as I am. The concept behind Eataly is to offer high-quality Italian food and drink under one roof, where customers can shop and eat. Eataly is 40,000 square feet of pure heaven if you love all things Italian. There are restaurants, take away counters and specialty shops.

On my visit I wanted to try a few different things. Check out La Salumeria Cheesemonger & Kitchen. You can get a charcuterie of imported salamis, prosciutto and cheeses served on a wood carving board. This is fantastic with a glass of wine. Hungry for a steak? Check out La Macelleria (The Butcher), where you walk up to the butcher case pick the steak you want, and they will cook it right before your eyes and you can then take it to a table and enjoy. They have live cooking stations featuring pastas and seafood as well. There are two actual sit-down restaurants in addition to all of the specialty shops.

You can’t have Italian food without fresh breads and Pizzas. There is also a gelato shop as well as a cannoli shop. At the cannoli shop they custom fill your cannoli when you order it and you can have it dipped in various items like crushed pistachio or chocolate chips.

There is another entire section with a fresh bakery that had so many great Italian desserts and pastries.

If you like Coffee, there is a coffee cafe that in addition to the coffee shop you can buy coffee beans to take home. There is a huge marketplace section where you can buy just about anything you could imagine Italian. Imported Olive oil, pasta, canned tomatoes, spices and other baking ingredients. They also have cookbooks, items for your home and especially your kitchen. They have a full line of books, sauces and pastas from celebrity chef Lidia Bastianich.

There are a couple different bars to enjoy a cocktail or class of wine with tables throughout Eataly to just sit and chill over a nice cup of cappuccino or espresso. When you walk into Eataly it has the look and feel of an Italian village. I can truly say that for me it has lived up to all of the hype and Eataly will be a very busy location when there are events being held at T-Mobile Arena as this is a great place to hit up before or after a Golden Knights game.

Now for the best part. They don’t actively advertise it but be sure to tell them before they ring you up, as locals get a 20 percent discount on everything at Eataly, If MGM offered free parking, I might be there multiple times a week.

Eataly advertises that they are open 24 hours. But based on my second visit only a couple places remain open late. I’m sure on event nights at T-Mobile they will keep more of the stations open later.

For me, Eataly lived up to all the hype and I give it 3.75 Forks.
