We've been here a couple of times, and both times were for the same thing: The Gelato. It's topped with slated nuts and house-made whipped cream and marshmallow. It is humbly presented in a mason jar. Combo it with an Americano and you've got the perfect after dinner dessert or lunch hour snack. Also highly recommended is the veal sandwich.... More

The menu is limited but the food is good, although not fantastic. We found the servers seemed very rushed so you really don't get much attention. If you're looking for Italian with entrees in the $25 to $33 range you might want to look elsewhere.

Went with colleagues for dinner after an all-day meeting. That location is convenient, and the setting (outside patio beside a downtown green space) was quite pleasant. The service was at best perfunctory, with long delays between ordering and getting both drinks and food. The price point, given the quality of the food and service was also high. Not a place...

I've been to this restaurant several time and I'm always served good food with great service. It was a beautiful day so perfect for the terrace. I tried the Rigatoni Bolognese. Another pasta dish to add to my previous visits. Delicious. So much better and gratifying than eating at the fast food places inside.

Found this restaurant while waking around Eaton Centre. Glad we gave it a try! Impressed with seafood linguine and my husband got flatbread pizza. They have outdoor seats available if the weather is nice. Otherwise, the interior has a unique look. Steps away from shopping as well, adjacent to Eaton Centre. Our server was very accommodating. I'll return on my... More

Nice place at Eaton Centre. Instead of choosing fast food, Trattoria Mercatto is more than an alternative for a quick lunch. Pastas, risotto and pizza's at affordable price. The portions are rather small but fair enough.

We enjoyed a lunch on their wrap-around patio. Excellent service was provided by knowledgeable staff who knew the menu items inside and out. We each order different dishes from the BARBABIETOLE ARROSTO salad to the SHORT RIB CROSTINI none of us were disappointed with our meals. Delicious and beautifully presented.

At Eaton Centre, instead of choosing fast food, try this restaurant. I love the risotto with mushrooms and the prosciutto pizza is amazing! Good people, nice place, looks like a pub, attentive staff, affordable price.

I hadn't been to Mercatto on Toronto Street for a while so thought I would give it a try for lunch and met friends there. I was really disappointed as it has become decidedly mediocre and very average. Indifferent and perfunctory service and a very basic Italian menu. Not good enough for 2016 Toronto. Will give it a pass until... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
