Il Pastaio di Eataly

Il Pastaio di Eataly

Looking to experience authentic fresh pasta in New York City? We've got just the place! 

Meaning "the pasta maker," Il Pastaio di Eataly offers fresh, housemade pasta dishes, prepared daily by our very own pastai. Inspired by the ancient art of pasta making and generations of Italian culinary secrets, our team of chefs and head pasta maker, Luca Donofrio, have teamed up to create a menu of regional Italian fresh pasta dishes, such as the veal-stuffed agnolotti del plin typical of Piemonte to the saffron-enriched malloreddus gnocchi of Sardegna.

"We have summarized the project of Il Pastaio as an art and science and I think this is really true. We wanted to express how fresh pasta, and in general Italian cuisine, was born in Italian homes with Italian grandmothers, later becoming traditions that were passed down, and then evolving to the present day thanks to the great cooks who developed it as an exact science. We also wanted to show the hard work of perfecting every housemade pasta shape. As we always say: the simple things are the most difficult. If it is true that pasta is simple, don't think that it is easy or trivial. Il Pastaio cannot improvise – just ask any grandmother," said Nicola Farinetti, CEO of Eataly USA.


And because we believe that the more you know, the more you enjoy, we're also bringing the art of fresh pasta making to the table with La Pasta del Tavolo! Watch and learn from Eataly's featured pastaio as they knead, roll, cut, and shape a specialty pasta right in front of you at a table just behind the bar. A series of guest pasta makers from around the world will also be hosted at Il Pastaio during the Tavolo Takeover series.

In addition to at least nine different fresh pasta dishes paired with regional sauces,  Il Pastaio's menu features small bites, housemade dessert (think: Tiramisù), and a unique selection of regional Italian wine and beer by the glass.
