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.
