    Booked a reservation for a "low" table and when we arrived, my guest and I were seated at the bar side by side on a high stools. We were meeting to discuss business which was nearly impossible with the high noise level sitting side by side rather than across from each other. Hostess was entirely unwilling to provide us with a low table even though this is what I had reserved on OpenTable. She was also quite rude. Food was average. Will not eat here again.

    One of my favourite places to go for high quality Italian food ! Being seated at the bar watching the chefs cook the food in front of you is an amazing unique experience! Great place to take a date. Cozy, not to noisy and can really enjoy an intimate evening ! 5/5 for sure !

    Found the portions large, but a little pricy. A few dishes had a little spice/heat in them and having just spent several weeks in Tuscany, found it curious.., unless the chef chose to include a little scilian influence. Also, they could have found nicer variety of vine tomatoes for the Calabrese salid. Otherwise all was good.

    The quality is high, but so is the price--no surprise. You can sit in front of the kitchen and watch your food being made, which is a nice touch that's somewhat uncommon. Location, ambience, and service are all fine. Quality Italian food. Worth a try.

    The menu changed since our last visit with a new concept of larger sharing plates. Not our preferred. A dish that arrived also had other ingredients that were not listed in the menu; a cream sauce. Unfortunately this did not work for the person with dairy intolerance. Reordered the dish without the cream sauce and the dish arrived with a lot of chili flakes, very spicy and this was also unexpected and not desired. The two persons who were sharing left having only eaten the starter, which was also a sharing plate. The dish was removed from the bill without asking which was a gesture. More importantly for us, the lunch experience was disappointing.

    Service was beyond and above. Our waiter was well trained and professional. It was our first time so we needed some help with the menu decisions and wine selection. There was 5 us and the bill for our table was $450.00. We shared the steak plate, 2 pastas, bottle of wine and 1 appetizer.

    Mercato was recommended by a friend as the best Italian restaurant in town, so we went there to celebrate a wedding anniversary for my parents. Service was excellent, however I was not impressed with the food at all! Everything we tried was so mediocre 😞 Even gelato Unfortunately we are not coming back

    Great place to come for a special occasion! We sat by the kitchen area where the chefs show us how they cook the food! Our server was great! He was very knowledgeable with the wine and helped us pick one! I would recommend the rigatoni! Their pasta is made in house and you can taste the quality!
