TORONTO, Oct. 11, 2022 – Building on the success of its premiere Toronto location in Yorkville, Eataly is opening its second Toronto location in a popular west end mall. That’s right, Cadillac Fairview has just announced that the largest Italian marketplace and dining destination worldwide, has signed a multi-year lease at CF Sherway Gardens in Toronto.
Eataly currently has 9 flagship North American destinations and over 40 stores worldwide. Canada has just the one location in Toronto but soon will have a second Toronto location.
“We have been humbled by the warmth of our guests in Toronto and we are thankful to this incredible community for how they welcomed us since we first opened our doors here in 2019. We would like to thank all of our valued partners who have helped us, including Tony Grossi and the Weston family and, of course, we would like to thank our newest partner, Cadillac Fairview,” said Luca Baffigo, global head of development and partner of Eataly.
In terms of when it will open, a specific timeline for the new Toronto Eataly has yet to be mentioned.
If you have never experienced Eataly in the Manulife Centre, imagine a shopping and dining Italian foodie paradise, sprawling over three floors, and 50,000 square feet comprising 4 restaurants, 7 eateries, 3 bars, 10,000 plus products from Italy and Canada, 5 production labs, 1 brewery and 1 hands-on cooking school. The Toronto location is appropriately dedicated to the theme of multiculturalism. Diversity, international knowledge, and the global community are an integral part of Toronto’s makeup, being home to more than 250 ethnicities from Italian to Indian and Greek to Korean.

We look forward to getting to work on opening this newest outpost in the Eataly family.”
