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!!

Sat outside on a lovely evening. Service was good. Food was good but my husband thought the quantity was small (Seafood linguine ). Eggplant was too breaded. Cappuccinos were great!

Arianna might have been one of the best servers I've had in recent memory (past 3-6 months). I dine out fairly frequently (about 1-2 times a week) and I've learned not to expect too much from restaurants that are attached to malls or part of busy areas - they tend to be inconsistent and will get patrons regardless of quality since the traffic is so high. However, mercatto impressed me. The food was cooked well - it's a bit bland but that's my preferred palate - inoffensive with great texture. Our server was definitely the star. We just came in after the Toronto Pride Parade as a group of six and she always made sure we had water, always came by at the right time without being intrusive, and even offered to take a group photo when she saw I was trying to snap pictures on my own. She was funny, attentive, and just a pleasure to be served by. I made sure to note the name on the receipt which I normally do not do at all. She has reddish hair and a boisterous attitude. Thanks a ton!

Our server spent majority of her time at a different table socializing and forgot to punch in our order. We waited over an hour for our food. The air conditioning was blasting, it was very uncomfortable. We got our drinks after we got our food. Another server had to tell her to serve us, isn’t that ridiculous. The food, however, was tasty.

We were seated across from the open kitchen, so the atmosphere was incredibly loud. Do not sit in this section if you want to hold a conversation. My pizza looked like it was under a heat lamp for an extended period of time and the dough was burnt. When I complained to my server he remarked that the burnt ones are lucky and did nothing about it. I will not be returning to this restaurant.

I had the pasta with fennel sausage, rapini and pine nut pesto... perhaps the best pasta dish I’ve ever had! Trying to figure out how I can replicate it at home. Still dreaming of it! Service was friendly and quick... finished with plenty of time to get to our show. Went back later that night to watch the end of the Raptors championship game and they were very accommodating and friendly. Would definitely return!

Good atmosphere and very tasty food. Though our server was very pleasant the service was okay at best. He seem to be the only server covering a very large section. As a result it took what we felt was a long time to get what should have come with our meals, e.g, a steak knife and salt & pepper. Our second round of drinks that we ordered with our mains were late arriving. We had already finished our meal and need to leave to catch a show when they finally appeared . The server comped the drinks after our explanation, which was very nice. In spite of the mediocre service, I would go back. .

We were dining with friends "pre-theatre". We advised our server of our timeline. Our appetizers and mains were served in a timely manner. Everything was delicious and our server was gracious, accommodating and professional. Thank you for a lovely dining experience.

The host and wait staff were great..friendly and efficient. The food was excellent -- polpette, fried green beans, margarita pizza. All very good - lots of taste, bright flavours, crispy beans, crispy pizza crust. One complaint. noise level. And it wasn't a full restaurant. Hard to talk, stressful.

We shared a meat and cheese board which brought us back to memories of Spain. Then we shared a thin crust pizza that was light and packed full of flavour. Our server was very friendly. Prices are reasonable.

Felt main course came far too quickly after we got our wine. We had no appetizers. Pasta portions, although tasty, were too small, and could have been hotter. Dessert good. Cappuccino obviously had been sitting and was not hot enough. Not a bad experience, but lots of room for improvement.

Loved the pizza - the staff was attentive. Only issue I have is it's very crowded and very noisy. Having said that I keep coming back - so obviously it doesn't bug me too much! Thank you for the opportunity to give feedback.
