Seeking Italian: You Won't Go Wrong Here

Michele is originally from Calabria and ran other Italian restaurants in North America before finally settling in Hallandale. You won't go wrong here. My wife and I have eaten here so many times that it is useless to try to pick out the dishes we prefer -- they are all good. We lived and worked... read more

This cafe is a hidden gem, tucked up in a strip shopping center in the shadow of a Publix. Don't let the location fool you. The wine list is exceptional. The menu may seem limited but it reflects the chef's attention to quality and simple clean flavorful food. Because quantities are limited, substitutions aren't guaranteed. I was lucky that the...

Last night my wife and I wanted to have a relaxing evening and remembered this great little restaurant. We have visited this place on many occasions and we're always satisfied. It's not a large restaurant but if it's cool at night, you should be seated inside. The service was more than adequate and the owner is usually present and acknowledges... More

Bad Location, hard to find, waiters are often slow. Food is not warm, takes a long time to get. The waiters are often very busy.

Professional restaurant, very good food and prices that are too high. I enjoyed the restaurant, but did not feel I received good value.

Il Mercato is a cant miss when visiting Hallendale Florida. The food is always fresh. They have a very good wine list which is quite reasonable.

Don't know why, but food is sort of incipid! Need more strength! A simple pasta is not an easy task, wish it were better as atmosphere is good.

Great nearby restaurant, went with a friend and sat at the bar. Super friendly staff served our beverages and later the food. Started with one of their special wines "on clearance" (only one bottle left) for a special price, and it was delicious. Made a meal of very generous appetizers and a dessert, and it did not break the bank.... More
