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

I was really craving cheese & garlic bread, so we decided to try Italian for dinner (we don't normally eat at Italian restaurants) Of course we went for a stroll up Lygon Street, and found this place rated well on TA. We sat outside and ordered a garlic and cheese pizza for entree (we like to eat a lot!) It... More

After not visiting for quite a while, our family dined at Mercandante again a few weeks ago. To be remembered & warmly greeted by the owner, shows just how in touch with the clients, this restaurant is. The pizza was exceptional, as always, with the base puffy & crispy as all good wood fired pizza should be. And the toppings... More

The service was friendly and quick, the atmosphere was warm and inviting, and we had a great meal with generous portions. We were seated next to the pizza making area and enjoyed watching. The owner/manager makes a point of engaging the customers one-on-one. We felt wanted. Thank you.

Found this restaurant on a Friday night visiting from Sydney and were not disappointed. Had just finished a $2 a day fundraising week so this was my first main meal in a week and it made the wait worth it. We had Pesto Pasta and the Chicken with white wine/mushroom sauce. Both were lovely as was the Garlic bread (large... More
