Best Italian food in the city!!

Definitely a must try if you are downtown, and if not it is well worth the trip! Absolutely the best Italian restaurant I have tried by far in terms of food, service, location and price range!! You need to experience it for yourself to see!!

Service was exceptional. Food was delicious. We had concert tickets so server was very aware of timing without becoming intrusive. We wanted to share 2 meals so the server offered to arrange for the kitchen to split them and bring them out that way ... instead of us passing servings back and forth at the table. I was doubly impressed when they brought us each two plates .. they didn't put the two dishes on the same plate bringing service levels up one more notch in my opinion. They were extremely accommodating, Very responsive when we were looking for something without becoming intrusive. Excellent food, excellent service. Open concept restaurant looks very modern... but we weren't seated in a "quiet area'. Didn't' see the top floor to know if there is more romantic / private seating available.

Had to keep looking around for our server to ask for bread, oil, etc., even though it wasn't busy. Also cocktails are WAY over priced for what they are. Which is not very good at all.

We had a great first experience at Trattoria Mercatto. Our server Danny (Danesh) was a real fun and energetic guy, he brought a lot of laughs to our table. He came over to ask how our food was and came to refill our glasses of water whenever we needed without being asked. He made this a very pleasant visit.

This is my go to place for lunch in the downtown area - as it's located in the Eaton Centre, it facilitates not having to wear a winter coat as it's accessible via the PATH. Fantastic food and great service. Highly recommend.

Like so many restaurants, this one is noisy, so conversation is difficult. However, the food and service was very good.

Everything was very nice. We shared the fried calamari appetizer, and for mains we had the seafood pasta and the lamb chops. Our only complaint would be that the seafood pasta was very salty. The service and the lamb chops were great!

Great and consistent food and service as this is my 2nd time back. Really nice food and menu options especially for a mall resto. I would love to see a couple more main meal options as the liquor options took up an entire page with only 5 main course options - if you were looking for an alternative to pizza or pasta. Still a great reliable place for a great meal! Thanks!!

We had made reservations and were given a nice table upstairs, overlooking the lit up parkette. The sea food appetizer was delicious and the pizza very tasty. We enjoyed our glasses of Chianti wine. The restaurant was not noisy. The service was attentive and speedy, such that we were pleased to be able to catch an earlier GO train.

A little disappointed about the flavour of the ravioli, it came with a few crumbles of lamb but the fresh pasta was delicious. If it weren’t for the two appetizers prior, I would have been hungry. Very packed therefore very loud. Service was prompt and courteous. I liked it but wouldn’t go back.

Service was great, happy we made a reservation as it was busy but that did not affect our service. Seafood could have been more fresh though- especially calamari appetizer. Great wine!

Our server was amazing at making sure we had everything we needed, esp for the 3 kids in our group. The food was served quickly, which we appreciated given one young child in our group was overly tired.

We had a wonderful pre-theatre meal at Mercatto Eaton Centre. My 10 year old daughter was treated like a customer, not just a child and I appreciated that. Our server, Brittany, was excellent (efficient, courteous and very personable) as was the food.
