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

Stopped as we were walking sat, got the last four seats inside on a cold Melbourne night. Food was great, drinks reasonably priced. Only issue was seats seed jammed in

This place is a well known fixture on Lygon St. It is a perfect place to go for quick bite or family dining. The food is superb and the service could not be better. The owner of this place is quite essentric and fun to be around. The food portion size is very generous. Make sure you make room for... 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

Lygon Street is like the Reeperbahn of food: no-longer-young tarts importuning the country parents of young university students, mediocre food at rip off prices. At Mercadante I ate a caesar salad so bad that I could never have imagined it, while a buffoon pranced about in a fright wig with plastic spiders hidden in his hands. Please don't let yourself...

We had a meal here on a Friday evening, the place was busy but we were seated quickly. We choose this restaurant after walking up and down Lygon Street looking at what was on offer, must note that the guy on the front door was not pushy unlike some on the street. We had oysters to start with and then... More

We had dinner at Mercadante on Sunday night. The restaurant was very busy but we only waited a few minutes for our table to be ready. The staff were very friendly. There are plenty of choices on the menu from pizza, pasta, risotto, steak, schnitzel, salads & much more, so there is plenty for everyone to enjoy. I am a... More
