Just okay, pretty plain, nothing outstanding to speak of, the place charges for refills on unsweetened iced tea (who does that?). It is located close for me but I tend to not even order pizza from the place.

I have been eating at Mercato's every week for about a year. Everything we have ordered to eat has been very good. The pizza is particularly good. Our servers have been knowledgable about the food and have provided consistently excellent service. The bathrooms have always been very clean. The prices are very reasonable. There is a popular local bar there... More

but has slipped past recognition. One thing that had always impressed me in the past was that they made their pasta exactly right. Now it's bland and wet and like every other mediocre/bad pasta/pizza joint around. When I brought it to the server's attention she kinda shrugged like "Oh well!" Shame.

New to the area, Googled pizza and Mercato's came up. They have an online menu which is great. We ordered a 24 piece pizza with some extra stuff and an antipasto. The total was $38. They told us 30 minutes to pick up, but when we got there it was not ready for another ten minutes. It was lunch time... More

If you've ever watched the show Restaurant Impossible one thing you see in poorly run restaurants is the servers clustering in the back and chatting for long periods of time like there are no customers in the restaurant. This was my experience at Mercato's recently. Almost every table was filled on a Saturday night and the servers just looked at... More

If you don't want to cook at home and you can't think of anywhere else to go give it a try.... But it's like rolling the dice. Homemade garlic bread??? If you mean a store bought roll with some melted cheese ok... Not homemade in my book. Pizza has been great sometimes and barely edible others. Calzones suck, tasted like... More

This is close to home for me, so it is easy to settle on dining here, Each time (I think I've eaten here 3 times in as many years) I tell myself I won't even bother again because the service, without fail, is slow and indifferent. I read with total amazement the recent reviews that raved on and on about... More

Great staff, always checking to see how you are doing or if you need anything. The food was very good and portion size is large.

We experienced very prompt and friendly service. As seafood lover's we found the seafood combo and shrimp, scallops and clam dishes to be cooked to perfection. So much food on the plate half came home for lunch the next day! Also, the freshly baked bread is served warm. There is nothing negative to say about this resteraunt!!

The pizza is great and the mozzarella triangles are fantastic! The service can be spotty, and the prices are a bit hit, but overall, it's the best Italian food this side of the Hudson.
