Need Advice on Eately Restaurants

Thinking of checking out the Eately scene. Any recommendations (for or against) for any of the restaurants? Looking for a sit-down meal for a fairly large group (10 or so) as opposed to grab-and-go .

Sit-down restaurants listed on the Eately website are:
IL PESCE
LA PIAZZA
VERDURE
MANZO
LA PIZZA & PASTA

Thanks hounds!

    Finding a table for 10 at Eataly is going to be a feat of epic proportions I think, especially if it is going to be on the weekend any time soon.

      Il Manzo, the only restaurant in Eataly that will take reservations, is the only sensible choice in this situation, when walk-in parties of 2 are already being told absurd wait times at the other restaurants.

      BTW, it's "Eataly."

        Eataly is not the place for a party of 10 - none of the places there.

          I agree with the above posts. The beauty of Eataly is that you can have an appetizer at La Piazza (mostly stand up tables) and then your next course at La Pizza & Pasta or another area you listed above, and then perhaps move to the coffee and gelato section for dessert....and, well, you get the idea. Not really the place for a large group of people. Best with a few of your best foodie friends.
