Went here last night with some friends and we were all extremely satisfied. The atmosphere was nice, a small cozy place but we weren't crowded and we could hear each other talk. Drink selection was good and the server was able to recommend a nice bottle of wine. We had a variety of appetizers and they were all excellent. I... More

I'm surprised the ranking here falls behind the local diner & sandwich shop. The chef/owner is a 7th generation pasta-maker: Buitoni. The venue is a small, casual storefront setting of simple wooden tables, a bar & open-air kitchen in the rear.The menu is somewhat limited, as the chef uses farm-to-table ingredients for dishes that change regularly. It includes: 8 antipasti,... More

I had the duck breast with figs. A compatriot had the sea food Fra Diablo. The chicken liver and Gnudi (pasta similar to gnocchi) appetizers were fabulous too. I'm not one for sweets but the biscotti were excellent. They have a good wine list. Recommended!!

Just a wonderful restaurant. Our favorite when we are in the area. Classical Italian food with a magical touch of organic ingredients and novel recipes and full wine list to complement every dish. Excellent head chef. Very busy restaurant , so reserve in advance.

This is without a doubt our favorite restaurant full of great wine, positive energy and wonderful genuine Italian flavors! The staff is always attentive, pleasant and on the ball. Third generation pasta maker I believe and quite a character. It's fun to watch the open kitchen bang and clang as the busy staff creates their artful dishes. Can't wait to... More

We were so excited to have dinner here. I made reservations for our family a month in advance but from the moment we arrived it was downhill. We had to wait 45 minutes for our table. There was a table in the front room, set for 6 but they wouldn't seat us there because it was "reserved" for another party... More

We had sort of forgotten about Mercato until a few weeks ago when my husband and I wanted to pop out for a Friday night dinner. We called just ahead and they squeezed us in and I'm so glad they did! The atmosphere is really lovely and the service and food were just excellent. We went back just two weeks... More

Great meal, fab food, superb service in October after a very mediocre visit in August. Thank you for training your staff and reverting back to the old Mercado we know and love. This is an innovative restaurant but understated restaurant, using local ingredients, an interesting wine list and offering a great meal and warm place to be on a cold... More

A few weeks ago during a two-night stay in Red Hook, my wife and I happened upon Mercato, a short walk away from the main street of Red Hook. Our meal was simply superb! Fresh pasta, perfectly cooked veggies, unbelievably tasty salad and a nice, modestly priced wine made this a perfect evening in a quaint candlelit setting that is... More
