If the food wasn't good enough, the service and staff at Mercato is top notch. Always friendly and always ready to give a recommendation. The butternut squash ravioli is to die for

Went with another couple for dinner prior to theater. We were in a back room with wine racks and nicely decorated with posters. I had a Caesar salad that was good, but have had many that were much better. Spouse had an arugula salad that had a somewhat sweet dressing. This was interesting and different. Bread with the meal was... More

We went to Mercato's for a glass of wine and appetizer. We had a fresh salad, and wine. The salad was wonderful and wine good. We've gone to Mercato's many times in the past and they continue to be a nice restaurant with good food.

I had dinner here recently with friends and the entire night was a delight thanks to the food, drink and service. We ate the tenderloin medallions and the briskett. Both were absolutely delicious ... I 'may' have eaten from both dishes. The waitstaff were very helpful when it came to menu options and variations, they were glad to assist further.... More

This is place has okay Italian food with some culinary twists. I ordered a pasta dish that was nice but not particularly memorable. Nice location across from the Farmer's Market.

Professional and friendly service. Good selection of fine foods. Great back-bar put to use by staff mixologists. We enjoyed ourselves and would come again.

We enjoyed a great meal at Mercado - seating was very comfortable and the noise level was quite good so conversation was easy and intimate if desired. The pasta dishes were well prepared - we had the Strozzapreti and the Penne and the were perfectly prepared and delicious. Add a nice caesar sale and some olives and we had all... More

Almost everything, in my humble opinion, is better with an egg on it. I went here for a private evening function, and then the following week for a late lunch. This place is unexpectedly forward in style and menu. The menu is creative without trying too hard to be "edgy." I am not a pizza lover. These folks mark the... More
