Eataly Has Turned Into A Holiday Paradise With A Panettone Tunnel & Italian Marketplace

If you love Christmas and Italian food, then you’ll want to take a trip here this season.

Eataly, Toronto’s three-level Italian food complex, has transformed into a holiday paradise filled with authentic Christmas goodies.

The store has been decorated from floor to ceiling with garland, baubles, trees and lights, and you’ll be greeted by a twinkling panettone wall that leads to the escalators as soon as you walk in.

Speaking of panettone, you can find over 50 flavors of panettone and pandoro (traditional Italian cakes) throughout the store. There are vegan and gluten-free options, as well as flavors like limoncello and chocolate pear.

If you’re a hot chocolate fan, you’ll want to stop by the Il Gran Caffé for the limited-time cioccolata calda; a traditional Italian hot chocolate with a rich, creamy consistency.
