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

We went as a group of four on 9/3 and had a great meal. We were recommended this restaurant by friends. We had a couple of really good pizzas and a pasta which was really good also. Also had a good dessert pizza. A few drinks and a good time. The meal and drinks cost us $175. We'd recommend this... More

There were many places on Lygon street we could have gone to but this place was busy and buzzing. Our pizza was excellent ...we had ordered a salad which we wanted before the pizza but both came quickly one after the other. The atmosphere was great and I would recommend this place unreservedly. Although it was very busy...full on a... More

Upon reading many favourable reviews, we tried the Frutti Di Mare Wood-fired pizza and Pescatora Tortellini in and was disappointed that some parts of the wood-fired pizza was burnt while the centre portion was soggy and the mussel used in the middle of the pizza was not very fresh. I expected more from a restaurant who name their restaurant as... More
