Stop by for lunch when we were in Melbourne. It took a while for the waitress to take our order but once she did all was good. Great to see house wine on the wine list for a reasonable price and it's good too! Out of four of us, three order pizza's while one ordered pasta. All meals were tasty.... More

We have been coming here for years and the food and service is always spot on!! Carlos the owner is always playing tricks and pranks making the kids laugh so hard their stomaches hurt!!! This is what makes a wonderful atmosphere. Make sure you try the AMAZING chocolate pizza!!!

I don't know where start! As we walked into the restaurant the arrogant pudgy man out the front Rudely pointed to a table we could eat at. He must be the owner or apart of the owning family because he "thought" he was all that and then some yet no idea on customer service. After looking at the menu we... More

We booked a table for 8 for our family reunion. On arrival, they had a record of our booking and that's all. There was no table for us, no apology no anything. The man we spoke to at the front was rude, abrupt, arrogant and couldn't care less. His only offering was for us to wait outside because, "we're running... More

Mercandante was recommended to me by a friend who had worked there 8 years ago (from N Ireland) and a friend from Darwin who also visits when she is in Melbourne. Carlos and the team are just great. The atmosphere is great and if you are game for a laugh, then this is the place for you. Don't let that... More

We dropped in with our three boys on a Friday night and the staff were accommodating in finding us a table even though they were rather busy. The food was very nice with the boys having a pizza to start and my wife and I had the tasting plate. The mains were all pasta dishes and the wait between courses... More
