Italian Restaurant/Market all in one..

Visited Mercato with family for a birthday lunch. The restaurant was very busy for a sunday afternoon! Overall, the food was delicious, although I thought it was a bit pricy. Wonderful service. After dinner, we shopped the grocery section and found lots of nice things. Overall, an 8 out of 10 for me. Definately will return.

Our server Dean was impeccable and made our night amazing. The food was as usual amazing. Swordfish crudo, risotto, prosciutto asparagus and half a chicken had us satisfied and looking forward to our next visit already.

Very hospitable hostess took the trouble not to seat us in a cool draft by the patio door and suggested we go to another table. Much appreciated.

Always delicious food at Mercato and the service was great! I do wish that there were even smaller portions because for a couple sometimes it is even too much if you want some variety. My absolute favorite place to eat in Calgary.

The service was amazing as well as the food! So simple yet so satisfying. The atmosphere was perfect for our date night out and being able to watch our food being made added a nice little touch. If you're willing to spend a bit of money I 10/10 recommend this place!!

Dinner and a show.. We sat at the counter and enjoyed drinks and dinner while watching the chefs work their magic. Food was excellent, service was friendly and good, atmosphere was fun ( a nice full restaurant even on a Monday evening in a supposed recession!). A great evening

Great as usual! The steak never fails. The pasta is always good. We find the summer style carpaccio a bit blend and much preferred how they prepare it in the winter. The cream cheese cake is delicious as usual but we prefer no orange flavour. We would also like to see the original "white" panna cotta coming back. It's great food regardless, we are just a bit picky in trying to make suggestions!!

There are many reasons I continually come to Mercato - the food, the atmosphere, the wine selection and the stellar service. One of the best restaurants in Calgary. I'm looking forward to going back.

We visited Calgary for the long weekend and wanted to have a nice dinner out. The entire evening at Mercato was incredible. The service was exceptional; the wine and food was the best meal my husband and I had out in a very long time. I wish we lived in Calgary so we could go back more often (but my waist line is probably thankful). I highly recommend the restaurant.

A cornerstone of the Fourth Street Southwest restaurant row, the atmosphere is always sociable at Mercato. Snag a table or seats at the eatery’s central open-kitchen counter where you can chat with your neighbours and super-knowledgeable servers. Order the dreamy gnocchi hand rolled with shaved Parmigiano Reggiano and Romano cheeses. After your meal, roll yourself on over to the attached market and pick up some homemade take-home items such as fresh sauces and bread.

Whether you visit the original Mercato in Mission or its sister establishment Mercato West on 85th Street Southwest, expect expertly crafted rustic Italian food in a sociable setting. It’s a great spot for sipping wine and sharing food. The restaurants’ open kitchens are part of the fun as you watch succulent steak (try the bistecca alla fiorentina) and whole fish grilled to perfection and house-made pastas prepared with flair.
