Ana and Saba is assisting us a lot and we are very happy. We will definitely come back with our family and friends. Food are the best! Platings are beautiful and the servings are well enough as well to satisfy us.

This is my 2nd time dining here and still the service is excellent. The 1st time was with friends. We had coffee and some sweets back then. This time we try a complete menu starting from Mushroom Soup, Mercato Salad, White Sauce Pasta, Pizza, Mozzarella...Cheese Sticks, chicken fillets, desserts and their milkshakes. I love their Mercato Salad, the textures of ingredients ranging from the crispy nuts, smooth avocado cuts and crunch leafy vegetables blended with their signature dressing is a chef’s kiss for me. I also enjoyed the White Pasta, the flavorful white thick sauce is heavy to the belly and all worthy. The raspberry shake is also Amazing and so as the Mango Shake. Personally I enjoy the ambiance. The teal colored walls, red painted chairs brings me good old memories when I visited Italy a few years back. It’s like I’m in Tuscany or in some Sicilian Villa.More

I am appalled at how rude the service was. Food is great, ambience great, but let down by service from all. In the beginning I asked if it was possible to replace a few breakfast items and before I could offer to pay extra. I...was met with a rude ”No”. My colleague and I had chosen to work from there that day, and were ordering a sufficient amount of food and drink. At around lunch time, even though the place had very few people, we were rudely told we’ve been there for over three hours and were asked to leave. Their excuse was that we were informed by the manager at the start, which we weren’t. That said, it’s the way we were told that I had an issue with. Never have I experienced such disrespectful service. Never coming back here.More

whilst the staff and amazing, polite and attentive, the food is a bit of a disappointment. Out of the two dishes I had, the starter was the best but by no means memorable. The penne arabiatta was a bigger disappointment as the sauce lacked any...real favour and felt as if it was made from an unblended can of heinz soup. The pasta however was cooked perfectly as al-dente. By no means had I expected fine italian dining, but didn’t receive more than average supermarket tasteMore

Mercato's location in Burjuman mall is particularly relaxing (not too crowded, but not too quiet either). Had a lunch date with my husband and this restaurant didn't disappoint. First of, I got addicted to their Mercato salad (that's saying something!) as there was something about...the dressing that won't let me stop eating it. It's one of those dishes that you remember to plan to order again the next time (yes, still talking about the salad!). As for the mains, we had Tagliatelle Bolognese (homemade and amazing), Chicken Milanese (a better way of having fried chicken) and Pepperoni Diavola (who would miss pizza in an Italian restaurant?). Finally, when you say you don't have room for dessert, and you see those tempting goodies displayed, strategically seeming to scream your name, you'll give in. We had Strawberry and custard filled croissant and Tiramisu. Not regretting any of it! Even their coffee exceeded my expectation. Awesome service from Jordan too. We will definitely be coming back!More
