Amazing Italian in Cologne

My second time coming to Mercato Deluxe. First time by accident based only hotel location and looking for great food via Trip Advisor. I am a big Italian food guy. I travel around the world and always look for small local places that make the real deal. Mercato Deluxe is a very relaxed kind of bar... read more

Very good Italian restaurant in the heart of Cologne. I do not speak Deutsche and the waiter went through every entree with our group and gave an explanation of each item, great service needless to say! I had the Caprese Salad with beef medallions. Others in the group ordered the ravioli, and lasagna and commented positively of the dishes. We... More

Very disappointed with the service received. It took 50 minutes to bring the main courses. The dishes are not authentic. For example we ordered "saltimbocca" and instead of veal we got roasted pork. Not recommended !!

This restaurant offers in a well-designed atmosphere most extraordinary homemade Italian food. The antipasti are really giving you the taste of Italy and the homemade pasta is without equal. Finally the desert really deserves a place in the hall of fame. A reservation is recommended.

Booked for a meal with friends, when we arrived we were shown to a table that seated about 30 people with all different people sitting eating couples and groups which was different but the people already seated welcomed us and they had nearly finished their meal. The food is great home cooked Italian . The menu was in German but... More

We went to Mercato Deluxe for the first time for a family dinner. We had a reservation, which is probably advised, since the number of tables is limited. The seating is a bit special, tables of six and you sit rather high on a bank which you share. I actually enjoyed the seating arrangement and found it quite comfortable and... More

This is a fantastic restaurant. Near the media district. Not too many tables so probably wise to book. A very genuine Italian experience. Huge portions, colourful food and tasty. If I had a criticism it's that the service was a little random. Also, if you don't go with a German speaker (assuming you don't speak German) than you will struggle.... More

Spontaneously we decided yesterday in heavy rain to give Mercato Deluxe a try because it was around the corner. Maybe because of the time (20:30) we were lucky to get a table after waiting only five minutes. We shared mixed antipasti which were quite nice and as a starter enough for two people. For the main course which we ordered... More

If you want to try great European wines and get them paired with tasty Italian food, then make a reservation at Mercato Deluxe. I've been there many times and have never left disappointed. Their appetizer platters are a great shared starter for a table of 3-4 and it's always a great idea to ask your waiter for the current wine... More

Tired, after a long exhibition week, I discovered this place through Tripadvisor. Although from the outside it looked like a stiff and comme il faut place, it proved to be alive with great food, great service and a warm "heart". In other words, just what we needed. Thanks.
