Great Atmosphere, Average Food for the Price

GOOD: Great atmosphere. Decor is warm and rustic. Servers were very attentive. TIP: FREE BREAD (just ask) with tasty olive oil and balsamic vinegar to dip. AVERAGE: FOOD: I would eat apps and dessert, and skip the mains. I like salt, but even I found the food a little too salty... read more

For a restaurant situated in a mall, the ambiance and atmosphere is actually pretty good. However, the prices are a bit high for what you get. The best value would be in one of the pizzas as the pastas and mains are quite small but pricey. Although it is a decent alternative to the Eaton Centre food court after a... More

Despite having a reservation we waited 20 minutes for a table with no apology or explanation. Paid $18 for a meatball sandwich... you'd expect authentic Italian taste and a good size portion, at Mercatto you get neither. Everyone in our party felt ripped-off. Stay away. No redeeming qualities whatsoever

Went on Saturday about noon. The host seated us about as far out of the way as possible. Service was very slow. Ordered a pizza that was the worst thing either of us had ever eaten. A glass of house wine, a Jack on the rocks and a lousy pizza later, we got a bill for $63. There are plenty... More

I am actually kind of shocked to see good reviews about this restaurant. Visited there last week with my daughter while shopping in the Eaton Centre. My daughter ordered Pasta with meat sauce and I was told it had " meat sauce". Was given the smallest portion I have ever seen for $12.95 and was a pomodoro sauce with no... More

Make sure you have the octopus entrée - very tasty. The place is also very modern and agreeable. The pasta is also very good.

No trip to the Toronto Eaton Centre is complete without a stop at Mercatto for me. I love the vibe of this popular trattoria, the service and the food! Wine by the glass is available in 3 sizes, depending on your thirst. The chalkboard above the bar features daily soup, salumi (local & imported artisanal meats), formaggi (cheeses), and large...

Waiting 15 minutes before they eve brought us water. Pizza was way to thin unless you like eat it like a sandwich salumi platter way to skimpy for the price. Overall crap!

Stopped in recently for dinner while in town with a few co-workers. Nice location ... very large place but still gets very busy. Service was very good .. the waiter was very friendly and helpful. I started with a pizza, and then had pasta for the entree .. both were quite nice and I probably didn't need that much food.... More

I've eaten at other Mercatto's in Toronto many times and have had good experiences. This is my first time at the Eaton Center location. I ordered the soup of the day which was fine and a salad. I just have to say that the salad was an abomination. A handful of shreds of romaine, with brown patches and rotten bits... More
