When you see lots of people dining in this restaurant and the next few ones looks empty, then you know where is the place to be. Scrumptious pasta and pizza - generous serving with reduced salt. At the of our meal we were too full to savour their infamous Nutella pizza. Maybe on my next visit...

He must have been stressed out. Me and 3 cashed up mates spent a week in Melbourne for the Boxing Day Test, and out and about at night. We went to Lygon Street (mistake #1) (and then walked past Mercadente . Didn't even eat there. Bloke at door was completely rude and for some reason or another thought he's pick... More

This wasn't my first experience at Mercadante. I know their food and they are probably one of the best pizzeria in Melbourne. But last time it was special, we had a big table with 15+ undecided adults, kids, BYO wine and all the possible challenges a restaurant could face. I won't comment about the food because it was as always,... More

The waitresses and the boss constantly had a smile on their faces and were always aiming to please their customers. The food was delicious too and worth our while. Glad we visited :)

Had dinner here on recent trip to Melbourne. Had an awesome dinner made all the more entertaining and memorable by Carlos and his surprises, jokes and funny gags ... Carlos you kept us smiling all night - thank you.

Real Italian pizza in Melbourne! We popped in on a very busy day (probably every day is a busy day) and sat at the table near the wood fired oven. We enjoyed watching the 'pizza baker' when he was making pizzas. The staff was friendly and we didn't have to wait long.

We Discovered Mercadante many years ago - before it was sold to the current owner, Carlos (the funny guy!). Over the 14 years we have had many, many meals there. We could on average say that the quality has always been above the rest. This is probably the reason that Mercadante is turning tables over more often than any other... More
