Wood fired pizza done by a fellow Italian from Asti. I suggest asking for mozzarella chunks rather than grated cheese for a more authentic taste.

Despite many friends recommending it, we had dined on "Lygon St". On pervious trips to Melbourne we never got the opportunity, this changed tonight. After an AFL match, we headed to Lygon St for dinner with the kids (6&8). We happened across this restaurant, and were immediately greeted with the warm friendly approach you would expect from a family run... More

On a recent quick trip to Melbourne, we decided to try Lygon Street for dinner. We came across this fantastic restaurant called Mercadente. We were kindly greeted outside the restaurant by the owner asking if we wanted to dine at his Pizzeria we were going to go further along the street to see what else was available, but he was...

Mercadante is a smaller restaurant in Lygon Street, Melbourne, specializing in Italian food. We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent & reasonably priced as is the wine list. Service is good and often entertaining if owner Carlos, is in the mood on the night. It is interesting to watch the pizza chef... More

Came here on a trip Melbourne, we were served fast, our table ordered the pasta and a pizza with pepperoni and chicken. The food came out fast and together. Wouldn't say it's the best pizza I've ever had but it's definitely delicious. My night was made when I saw they exhibited my art! Just kidding, but definitely worth a visit.

We started with a Caprese Salad to share and it was huge and delicious. We then had pizzas- Napolitano, and a Pizza Porcini with white sauce, mozzarella, porcini, asparagus, tallegio, parmesan and truffle oil. the crust was thin and very crispy with just enough chew-absolutely spectacular.

We are from Sydney and it was our first time in Melbourne since 2005! So we were totally unsure of where to eat. We decided on Italian, feeling like a scrupulous wood-fired pizza. Thanks to trip adviser we found this pizzeria with an amazing atmosphere. The food was very good, and there was a man entertaining each table at least... More
