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.

I booked a table for me and my wife but when we got there they said that "our table was not ready" even though there were a few free tables.

Honestly , we drive from Edmonton every few months for this restaurant! Last night was the first time not getting the steak . I was skeptical lol But the halibut was fantastic !and of course the 2 pasta courses we had to start were exceptional.

Hostess got us off to a bad start she was miserable. Waitress was not much better, barely checked on us and never even asked if we wanted more wine. The polpo and gnocchi were delicious but the halibut steak was very dry and tasteless. When we paid with cash we were told she may not be able to make change for us and made it seem as if we were an inconvenience which I did not appreciate either. It was our celebration dinner for our first anniversary and we were very disappointed.

We were able to get a table outside and it made our night. The atmosphere out there was fantastic The complimentary glass of perseco was not necessary but very much appreciated none the less. Tim was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu and Italy in general. He made excellent menu suggestions and taught us about the ingredients including uncle Luigis oil and Primivito wine, both of which we thoroughly enjoyed. The pace of the food service was just right as we spent a full two hours enjoying our dinner. The food was delicious as it always is here but the genuine enjoyment of our experience last night came from both the patio atmosphere and wonderful service provided. Thank you for making it a terrific birthday night out.

Our server seemed hung over and was not very good at all. I had to ask for the specials and it just felt like dive bar service in a fine dining restaurant. The guy who brought the food and described it to us was excellent though. Food was fantastic as usual though. Just expect a little better from this kind of establishment.

First time coming, we received a gift certificate for our wedding last year and decided to use it for a dinner for our first wedding anniversary. I was a little unsure what to expect. Everyone was lovely, we sat at the chef's counter which was super cool, our waiter explained everything and made great recommendations. Food was great, service was relaxed and enjoyable. Thank you!

For the first time being there it was fun and great atmosphere Service was top end and food was fantastic and very informative to the point the waiter was saying I can tell you if you are ordering to little or too much to eat For never eating there we enjoy that type of information so we can enjoy the full meal and enjoy the experience of that open kitchen!!

Excellent well paced service. Way too much food recommended but she was great about stopping some food. Mercato was great about accommodating adding a person with a couple hours notice. Communicated well. Food was fab as usual. Great wine but would love to see cocktails vamped up on menu. Again and again Mercato's quality control is excellent. Nothing comes out subpar!

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.
