Private Dining & Events at Eataly

At Eataly, we believe that one of the greatest sources of joy is what happens around the dinner table. Eataly Chicago offers a range of private dining and event options in our cooking school and restaurants, so you can tailor your small, large, casual, formal, interactive, instructional, seated, or standing event accordingly.

Let us host your next private gathering at Eataly Chicago! Whether you have 20 guests or 1200, your group will enjoy mixing and mingling in our private event spaces: La Scuola di Eataly (our in-house cooking school), Il Salone (modern yet classic dining room with city views), and La Pizza & La Pasta (our largest restaurant space featuring the golden ovens of Rossopomodoro and an in-store dining vibe).

Contact us at for more information on buffet menus, cocktail receptions and room availability for your upcoming event.



Let Eataly bring an authentic Italian experience to you anywhere in the Chicagoland area and beyond! Our virtual events include food and beverage kits with all the ingredients you need to enjoy a wine tasting or a cooking class in your own kitchen. Each event is customized to your group’s interests and led by an Eataly expert who provides a step-by-step lesson or guided tasting. We even offer individual catering options, so your group can dine together locally or across the country!

These virtual experiences are perfect for team-building, birthday celebrations, or just catching up with friends and family remotely.

Learn the traditional recipe for Italy’s most iconic dish! You and your guests will cook along with our chef, asking questions and interacting with each other, while creating a delicious meal for one or two to share. A panna cotta kit with ingredients for a homemade dessert and a pre-made individual panna cotta cup can be added for an additional charge.


Pizza Napoletana, pizza Romana, pizza Siciliana; what does it all mean? We all know that Italy is the birthplace of pizza, but each region has its own approach to this classic dish. Join us from the comfort of your own kitchen as we learn about pizza alla pala, the classic Roman-style pizza known for its crispy crust and distinctive fresh toppings. Under the guidance of our Chef of La Scuola, you'll learn how to stretch, top, and bake two pizze alla pala. Our kit includes two containers of Eataly's fresh pizza dough, two house-made fresh mozzarella balls, imported Italian pizza sauce, soppressata, and pitted olives. Vegetarian and vegan kits are also available.


Let our vino and salumi e formaggi experts lead your guests through a tasting tour of Italy with our wine & antipasti experience kit. Sample three Italian wines and a variety of specialty cheeses, meats, condiments, and house-made bread.
