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.

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.

We had great time as usual ! Mercato is one of our favorite restaurant in Calgary. I'm just sad the carrot cake sold in the market is not on the desert menu :(

Been here MANY times. Always enjoy it, especially at the counter. One of my favorites when I'm in town.

Mercato on 4th is hands down, our favorite restaurant in Calgary. The wait staff is consistently flawless, as is the kitchen. This time we brought my mother, who is visiting from out east, for a early mother's day treat. Didn't disappoint!

My table was ready when we arrived and we spent a pleasant evening. Service was awesome. Regarding the food, the amount of salt sometimes makes difficult to fully enjoy my dinner. I think Mercato should consider adding few healthy options to its menu. Thank you!

Service would have been a five, were it not for the younger hostess who appeared to hate her job to the fullest. She barely greeted us, seemed utterly overwhelmed, and glared on our way out. The manager (who was helping out the hostess) was amazing, as was our waitress. It is unfortunate that she is the point of first contact as the rest of the evening was superb.

We got put at a tiny table in the middle of where of where the servers walked on both sides of our table constantly knocking our shoulders or having a backside at our face while they attended yhe other tables. Meal started out great with the Caprese salad, but then every dish after that was so salty we couldn't finish any of the dishes. For the cost of meal we could have gone to so many places where we would have at least had a comfortable table.

The food was good, prices were higher than I would like and not totally in line with the presentation and atmosphere. The service was excellent. Our server was professional, personable, and obliged us with table side service to help us prepare our whole fish - which we were in over our heads. She was great.

We enjoyed the experience and the food was good, but over priced in our opinion. Chicken liver pate was really good. In our pasta dish the cauliflower crema was little too salty and there were only three scallops, although big, in a full size pasta serving. What if there had been four people sharing the dish? Eggplant was warm only on the bottom and quite difficult to take out pieces off from it. Lastly, why does wine have to be priced so high? Cheapest bottle was $50.

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.
