Marvellous Mercatto

As we walked down bay street...we were hungry and in desperate search of a restaurant. We were hit with a wonderful aroma as we passed this restaurant...we quickly ran inside and sat down! The atmosphere was that of a classy market - our server was down to earth and un pretensious....and the atmosphere was all class. The food was so delicious and the pizza tasted just like a funghi pizza I ate in Italy once!

The server was very helpful and patient, especially considering the very late arrival of our 4th person. The meal was excellent, as always.

The restaurant is very nice ! We were greeted and sat by this wonderful young woman. Once everyone in our party arrived, the waitress was very knowledgeable on each dish, explaining tastes, flavours and portions. She was very attentive to our table at all times , even while serving 3 other tables . She had a wonderful demeanor and very pleasant! The bartender was very creative in creating a special cocktail just for me. He was exceptionally pleasent too! Over all, my experience was 5 stars !!!

Service was the highlight other than having to ask for bread, pepper and hot sauce. Noise level made it difficult to speak across the table. Doubt I'll be back.

nice atmosphere service was good, but they brought no bread to the table and the waitress had mentioned the dish i ordered is fantastic for dipping bread in. bread was brought at the end of the meal. i had the octopus which was perfect. my mother had the ravioli which was undercooked and the sauce was watery. it came with zucchini which was also undercooked. overall the food was under seasoned. the octopus was good however

Reel Business Lunch: Where Suits films in Toronto

Harvey meets Louis Litt at this fine café (in Season 4, Episode 10) to help him secure a job since he committed a felony and was forced to resign from Pearson Specter. Louis must have been feeling the ambiance when he said, “This is Rome, you’re a gladiator and so am I,” because while this bellissimo spot is not quite Rome, it is Mercatto at Bay and Adelaide, a classic Italian restaurant serving delicious homemade dishes (chitarra alla carbonara anyone?). Reserve your seat and opt for the patio if you’re lunching for business (psst: it’s quieter there).

There are multiple Mercatto locations in Toronto, but the one at Bay and Adelaide is the most hoppin’. You'll find a full lineup of authentic Italian food with options like misticanza, polpette or grilled calamari to whet your appetite for the main course – piping hot pizza. One of the best experiences you can have is with the Agnello which features ingredients that’ll make you feel like you’re dining on the Mediterranean coast.

With locations across the city, Mercatto is an uber-charming, oh-so-chic string of trattorias that offer fine Italian cuisine in upscale-meets-casual spaces. You’ll find yourself tempted by effectively everything on the menu, from stacked charcuterie boards to mouthwatering pasta dishes. Popping in for a business lunch or a date night dinner? Don’t hesitate to split a pie of the thin-crust variety. Our pizza pick? The Agnello, which combines lamb sausage, olives, fior di latte, and San Marzano tomatoes.
