Taverna Mercatto has a rather limited menu for an Italian restaurant unless you want pizza. I had the seared tuna on greens and it was good but had a slightly fishy taste. My husband’s bolognese was ho-hum but he was happy it was not a...More

Went to Taverna Restaurant with a couple of friends and we were not disappointed! The service was excellent, good atmosphere and the most important, the food was delicious. The tuna in particular was amazing! Can wait to return and have it again!

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

They serve liquor so I doubt bringing your own would be acceptable. I don't think there's a dress code. Some were dressed in jeans and a polo, others sports coats from work, etc. I'm sure you could go in shorts as well... More
