A new entry into Qatar's market, Eataly, will feature the largest Italian marketplace in the world, and will comprise a variety of restaurants, food and beverage counters, bakery, retail items, and a cooking school.

Rony Mourani, general manager of the Mall of Qatar said: "While choosing a retail partner we ensure that it is in line with our promise of getting top brands that will add real value to Mall of Qatar.
