good good. hidden jewel

excellent price vs quality relation. Not so good distribution and dining outside during summertime is not an option. Good service, excellent food and smart wine selection. A pity they don´t take reservation online, but only by phone. could be a challenge

Going to Il mercato is like going to your neighborhood Italian in Manhattan. The food here is incredible - try the chickpea salad and arugula pear salad. Everything I've tried is good here. For when the weather cools off a bit, ask to be seated outside.

That atmosphere of this restaurant makes you feel like you are in Europe. They have a great wine selection and their half-portion options are perfect if you aren't too hungry. The owner is friendly and the staff are fun and polite! It's a great place for lunch, date night, or to just sit and enjoy some wine.

somebody suggested this restaurant as a good place to eat! Wow, this is a truly good find: the food was superb and the service was great! I am already thinking when will we be able to go next. Everybody tried different dishes and let me tell you, we all literally licked our plates- Italian food at its best! Thank you... More

Great food, great service, and great wine at reasonable prices. The six of us all enjoyed our selections, from Tuscan bean soup to Tiramisu. The staff will help you choose the perfect wines to go with your food. Reserve, so you won't be disappointed.

Some visiting family of one of my consulting clients invited us to dinner, and having been here before, recommended we have dinner here. We have lived here for almost 15 years, and never tried this restaurant - hidden away in a strip mall, where we shop at Publix. But, we have now been there, and it will become one of... More

We stopped in here on a Friday night after just arriving in Florida. We were tired and starving and randomly picked somewhere to go on our way from the airport to the place we are staying. We sat at the bar (there were tables open, but the bar was inviting). We ordered a couple appetizers and the gnocchi. All were... More

Went for dinner on a Friday night with friends. It's a small restaurant with a few tables indoors and a few outdoors. I highly suggest you make a reservation since tables get taken quickly. We called in a reservation in the morning. The food was delicious. My favorites were the truffle fries, gnocchi with beef, scallops, and dulce de leche... More

This is a small out of the way Italian restaurant with excellent food. The service was not too good yesterday . It is hidden behind a Publix supermarket and not very easy to find. They could use some refurbishing of the furniture. We had some delicious lamb chops.

This place is Italian only as a departure point. Unusual combinations and techniques borrowed from nearby cuisines work. Choice of half and full portions. Pleasant staff. Great wine selection.
