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!

Food was very good, but menu selection seemed rather limited Service a bit slow at times. Ordered a vodka and tonic before dinner. Swear they measured that vodka to the last millilitre.

It is very loud and crowded, especially if you have your back to an aisle. Server did not offer fresh ground pepper or grated parmesan with the pasta dish, which given the price of the food one would have expected. Food itself was great.

Attended with my boss - who is also a friend. Food was extraordinary; despite being very busy, floor service was excellent AND manager (John) came over to acknowledge and to say it's been some time, etc., and subsequently to greet us as we left! Superb.

Our server Rebecca was amazing from start to finish! She made great recommendations, accommodated to all of our requests and ensured everyone was having a great time the entire time. She made sure everyone had their glasses full - even if it was just water and dishes taken away at just the right moment after we finished so no one felt rushed. It was a fantastic evening and we look forward to coming again soon!

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.

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).

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.
