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.

Incredible! Everything about our experience was incredible! We went to the hockey game after and couldn't stop talking about our meal and wanted to go back and eat more. As good as going to Italy to eat.

I know they make it clear that they are fans of salty foods, but it was just a bit too much for me (and I'm a fan of salt!)

A favorite - come back on a semi regular basis and have had s cosistsnt experience. Best shared family style in courses - the Bisteca is a great red meat experience. Pasta is always nicely done.

What a gorgeous birthday treat! Our server Russell was excellent, his explanations of the menu and style was superb. We will definitely return with a bunch of friends. Mercato is my new favourite restaurant in Calgary!

we are frequent visitors at mercato however i think this was the first time the service sucked! It look us 30 minutes alone to get a beer when we got here and it seemed like the server didnt really want to give us the time of day. Food was still awesome as per usual and the atmosphere was great! Service was just a bit of a let down this time, regardless we will be back for the food!

Food and our server were fantastic. The seating host was very rude. We chose the last reservation of the lunch shift of 1:45 as we were driving in from out of town-traffic delays 5min late. Knowing they closed at 3pm and being there numerous times before, knew even 45min was lots of time to eat and have our order in before 2pm! When my husband went in, the hostess snapped at him indicating we were lucky as we just made it. Very snarky tone. Not appreciated as we have been to their restaurants numerous times, book out the entire venues for staff holiday functions (under company names) , and were very turned off by this. If they don't want to seat people at 1:45 I suggest they change the last lunch reservation to 1:30 so they don't have to feel like they are doing their customers a favor. Very dissapoint

The only reason the service isn't a 5, is they forgot one of our dishes...but promptly delivered when we asked about it. So not really a big deal. Atmosphere isn't full stars just because it's very noisy - it's the nature of the setup. I was a little disappointed when I made reservation that we were still sat at the bar - but the food here is top notch! It's our special occasion restaurant and we come a couple times a year. Never have had a dish I didn't want more of :)

We have gone to Mercado West a number of times but it was closed so thought we'd try Mercado Mission. I called in the afternoon and was told that it would be quite busy and that we'd have to sit at the bar overlooking the cooks. There were 3 of us and we were seated on a corner so we could see each other and visit. The atmosphere was vibrant, the waiter was very attentive, and the food, as always, was fantastic! So flavorful!! We'll go back for sure!!

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.
