The Marketplace at Eataly serves as a wonderful option for those who want to take Valentine’s Day prepping into their own hands. Throughout the marketplace, shoppers can find both savory and sweet specials for the occasion, including a Dinner for Two from the Fresh Pasta Counter, including the pasta and ingredients for Agnolotti del Plin with Black Truffle Butter and 18 Month Parmigiano Reggiano ® DOP and Tagliolini with White Truffle Butter and 18 Month Parmigiano Reggiano ® DOP.

Shoppers can also enjoy Caviar Day, celebrated on February 12 at the Eataly Dallas Fishmonger. For the entire day, Calvisus Caviar, an industry leader in Italian Sturgeon Caviar, is 30% off. Calvisus Caviar is sustainably sourced from the lakes in northern Italy and is the gold standard in sturgeon aquaculture that produces unparalleled, premium-quality caviar. A perfect addition to the at-home Valentine’s Day dinner!

In the Wine Shop, Dallasites can find a variety of Italian wines – more than 1,200 to be exact! – carefully sourced from the 20 different regions of Italy to gift to your Valentine. Some of Eataly Dallas’ favorite wines to pair with your Valentine dinner include Monte Rossa Brut Franciacorta, Flor Prosecco, Flor Spumante Rosato and Famiglia Garafoli Lonesia.

Lastly, grab something sweet for your sweetie. The Italian marketplace offers high quality artisanal candies, crunchy cookies and rich, Italian chocolates in a variety of flavors. Venchi Chocolate has a large selection of chocolates to satisfy every sweet tooth.
