Great patio .... outdoors yet shaded. Wide menu selection and reasonable prices. Can’t ask for too much more!

Great patio but of course looking quite spartan in these times. Server was wonderful - attentive and just the right amount of friendly. Food was good as always - we shared the arugula salad - very nice. My guest loved her seafood linguine; I had the pepperoni pizza. It was good but lacked the fenne l& coriander flavour that was suggested by the menu. Still, lots of pepperoni which was nice and crisp too! That said, I don't think you can beat their pizza diavola with soppresseta... Shared the canolo for dessert and that was fabulous. Wishing the rest owners and staff well...

Food should be tastier and not already frozen. Calimari Is what you would expect from red lobster and would have tasted better grilled in a salad. Tiramisu was far too runny. May not come back.

It is challenging to be heard with a long table in a busy restaurant. Otherwise we had a lovely time and Hannah took good care of us.

At lunch hour it is extremely noisy and very difficult to hold a business conversation. I could barely here the person across from me. Consider hanging some sound-absorbing baffles from the ceiling or walls. Unfortunately I won't be coming back unless this situation improves.

Super busy pre-Christmas lunch service - staff were fast, efficient, friendly. My friend made a mistake with her order (item had gluten in It - only realized it once it came to the table) and the staff swapped it out with a lovely salad - no questions asked - it was seamless. They were super stars. Food was delicious as always.

Always great at Mercatto! We enjoyed the tuna salad and the pasta special. Despite the restaurant being fully booked with both large and small groups, the ambiance and service were extraordinary. I felt like we were in Italy!

Very crowded and noisy ambience, but well organized tables and attentive service make up for most of this. If I had any hearing problems I wouldn't book here, but otherwise I'd go back. More expensive than most midprice lunch spots in the area, but the quality of food and service is there to justify the downtown Toronto prices. Don't talk confidential government or university business - your Assistant Deputy Minister/CEO may be at the next table.

The server seemed to forget about us a couple times during our lunch. It was a busy lunch hour so I can understand but it definitely lowers their start rating.
