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!

When you walk in the door there is great energy from the guests enjoying fresh, quality food and the service staff. I have yet to order anything that wasn't awesome. Many people I know agree that this one of thier favourite spots for lunch or dinner.

Caught up with an old friend for lunch at Mercatto on Friday. Our server was kind enough to let us take are time chatting before ordering. I had the Cavatelli Cacio e Pepe. The pasta was freshly made with just enough of each ingredient so one thing didn’t over power another. I would recommend this dish. Just enough to feel satisfied and not stuffed. An enjoyable experience. Thank you!

The food was great as always. We were seated in the private dining room because we were a large group - the atmosphere isn’t as nice in there and it often seemed as if our waitress forgot about us.

Reception at the door was frosty and they did not offer to hang up our winter coats despite their being a coat rack immediately behind them. I have eaten at this restaurant several times, the person handling the front was I believe a wait staff person covering and they handled the task as an annoyance.

Our office went to Locale Mercatto for our holiday lunch and the service and hospitality was impeccable. The waiters/waitresses were very kind and followed up on our orders and the restaurant was very accommodating with our staff who required specialized dishes. John (manager) in particular is very kind and very easy to communicate with and made sure everything was looked after for us on the day of our lunch. We would definitely return for another meal!

Drink specials are the only thing going for this place unfortunately... Pasta was tasteless and pizza was chewy and generally disappointing. Luckily beer was $5 or it would have been a complete bust...

Only comment would be that the bar door located near the booth we sat at had a considerable draft, likely due to the door being open in the take-out area. Outside of that was a great lunch.

This was our first visit to this location. The service was friendly and efficient but the star was the lasagna. It doesn't look like typical lasagna which might throw you off at first, but the flavour is amazing! We will definitely return to this or another mercatto location the next time we want high quality Italian food!

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).

Pizza you can bank on in Toronto's Financial District

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.
