Rome's Stazione Termini welcomes Eataly.
Eataly, the chain of high-end Made in Italy food halls, on Friday opened a new outlet in Rome's central Termini station, the city announced.
The 700-sqm store, located in the upstairs Terrazza space, includes a coffee bar, pizza counter, a 100-seat restaurant and a market area with a selection of typical Italian products.
Food on offer includes traditional Roman-Lazio pasta courses to classic Eataly dishes such as the Fassona steak and the Giotto hamburger, along with a selection of wine, craft beer and cocktails.
Eataly is open for breakfast and lunch, for aperitivi and dinner, every day from 06.00 to 22.00, with the restaurant serving nonstop from 11.00.
Over the Christmas season there is also a temporary Eataly store on the ground floor in Termini, offering a selection of festive gift packages and treats including panettone and pandoro.
The arrival of Eataly follows a spate of big-name food openings at Termini, spearheaded in 2018 by Mercato Centrale and more recently with Five Guys, Wagamama, Starbucks and the French chain of bakery-café restaurants, Paul.
Eataly's opening in Termini station comes after the food emporium launched at Rome's Leonardo da Vinci airport, better known as Fiumicino, in May 2022.
Founded in 2007 by Italian entrepreneur Oscar Farinetti, Eataly inaugurated its first Rome food mall at the former air terminal beside Ostiense station in 2012.
The new Eataly at Termini coincides with works to upgrade the area around the station, including Piazza dei Cinquecento, ahead of Jubilee 2025.
