I took a client to the 15 Toronto Street location and it was fabulous! I am a vegetarian and they were able to accomodate with an awesome veggie/mushroom pasta! Very courteous and friendly as well! Thank you!

Overrated, not impressed

I've always wanted to try this restaurant, have walked past the Bay St location many times. We tried to have dinner there once but waited at a table for 15 minutes and wasn't even looked at so we got up and left. We tried the Eaton Centre location this time. Although the service was better, the experience was okay. I saw that the table next to us had ordered a meatball appetizer. When I asked if I could have that with a side of pasta, our server suggested that i have the pappardelle and bolognese as it was the same thing. I went with her advice but I disagree that it was the same. The tomato sauce looked much more rich with the meatballs than in my dish. I found it odd that they promoted the fresh pasta used for their ravioli but they didn't use fresh pasta throughout. That said, the pappardelle itself was tender. The tiramisu was probably some of the best that I've had, I make a point of trying it everywhere I go. If I return, it would likely be for coffee and dessert because we happened to be walking by. I miss the City Grill that used to be in this location, the menu and service was great.

Overpriced and tasteless

A group of us went to the Mercatto in the Eaton Centre for lunch. I had the eggplant sandwich with salad. There was one 1mm thick slice of eggplant on my sandwich with 2 tbsp of sauce and nothing else. The salad was about a cup of spring mix with 3 slices of celery and 4 slices of green onion. Since we were a group of 11, they charged 18% grautuity. So, my meal that cost them about 50 cents to put together, cost me $19.00 with tax and tip. I really detest the Eaton Centre Mercatto. The food is way too salty and the value for your money is non-existent. I tried to go somewhere else but the guest of honour likes this place, for some reason. Take my advice, go anywhere besides the Eaton Centre Mercatto. One girl in our party had to send back her pizza as there was something rotten on it and the she didn't like the shrimp pasta she ordered. My colleague ordered the special of the day, orzo with scallops. There were 3 scallops on top of maybe 3/4 cup of orzo and it was $22.00! I don't understand why this place is so popular. There are much better choices in the vicinity for a lot less money and less sodium.

I have to tell you that our group of 18 had a fantastic time at your restaurant. The food was supberb and the service was excellent. Everyone raved about it. The ambiance of candles on the table and beautiful wine glasses really added to the atmosphere. Will certainly recommend you to anyone. I cannot say enough about. Fran - Noront Resources

I went to Mecatto on Toronto street this past weekend with my wife for our 5th year wedding anniversary. We had a really good time. Great atmosphere, delicious food, our server was really helpful in regards to questions about certain dishes. We also recieved a complementary glass of muscatto to celebrate our anniversary.

I took a client to the 15 Toronto Street location. The food was absolutely amazing! In addition, I am a vegetarian and they were not only able to accommodate by creating a veggie pasta for me, it was not only VERY delicious, but everything was done with professionalism and a smile. I will be back! Alison Client Manager

Another great lunch experience on the patio at Mercatto. It's our regular 'go to' spot for business lunches and afternoon coffee meetings. The service is great, the food is great and there's a good energy about the place. See you there again soon!

A very good meal at its price range. We requested our order of salad, pasta and pizza to follow sequentially and that we will share the dishes. While the salad came in one plate, both the pasta and pizza were served split. We appreciated this extra service. The pizza did arrive before we had finished the pasta. There was a large amount of duck ragu in the pasta and the pizza had a super thin crust. Overall a great value and an enjoyable experience.

Mercatto Toronto Street has be our go to place for a great meal when downtown. Usually in context with seeing a show, and when we arrive late, and ask if we can be done by 7 45, so we won't be late, this is met with 'no problem, don't worry, you will have time for dessert'. Food and service has always been really great, and that they will reserve a table on line, adds to the convenience that we, and our friends have a great pre show experience. Thank you! (and don't tell anyone, but the maple bacon ice cream is awesome)

They were very concious of the context of our business lunch and provided appropriate service. Friendly staff, good space between tables, just wish they had mini beer glasses.
