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.

I have been to this restaurant several times, mainly as a friend of mine likes it. But after last night, I won't be back again. As the place is so busy, the service is very slow. Having said that, the staff are friendly and helpful. The antipasti is very good and not bad value for money. However, the main courses... More

There were plenty of choices for food and even more for wine. They did not have english menus but the staff was more than happy to explain the menu and give recommendations. We had the ravioli and penne with tomato sauce. Both were great. I think you can't choose wrong here so try something new and you won't be disappointed.

Been there a couple of times now, and everytime it was a joy. The menu needs time of attention, the wine list is long, the food to chose from is definitely shorter, bur no matter what you chose, I believe people who enjoy good food wont be disappointed. Sitting on the benches can hurt your back but thats acceptable compared... More

Im always wary of visiting a restaurant serving traditional food from another country but Mercato Deluxe Italian in Cologne does not disappoint. Always busy, near to the Mediapark the atmosphere is relaxed but buzzy. High wooden tables with bench seating is unusual but informal. The menu is relatively limited but the pastas are excellent quality and very tasty but the... More

This is a great inexpensive place just off the main square in the city. Our lunch was only 7€ each with all you can eat salad bar, selection was great and a small but very tender fillet steak. They have a special that changes daily that seems to offer great value.

We didn't book a table but there were free tables. We ordered wine, starters and pasta. Wine choice was not perfect, Spanish wine choice was very poor, with Italian... More
