Now that all the noise is over from the construction of Tojays. It is time to enjoy this spot again. It is a nice somewhat hidden away restaurant. It is somewhat romantic. Good for an evening experience.

If you are in the mood for a relaxed dinner, at a small unpretentious restaurant, that will deliver great food then this place is a great choice! Being close by is a place we frequent. The appetizers are delicious and not your typical calamari, brie or artichokes. Truffle fries are great. All the main dishes and salads are very good,... More

I was looking for a restaurant halfway in between Fort Lauderdale and Miami for a grou of friends to meet for dinner. I thought Hallandale would be about halfway. I searched highly rated reviews of Hallandale restaurants and Il Mercato came up. I knew after reading the reviews that we were going to like it, and that was an understatement.... More

The food was delicious! The staff was so attentive & kind. We loved that we didn't feel rushed at all even though it was quite busy on a Thursday night. We will definitely be back!

We had to search for this place in the Publix strip mall, but now that we've found it, we will keep coming back. It was a 45 minute trip from Fort Lauderdale in rush hour, but well worth it. The servers were friendly, fabulous, fantastic. They were knowledgeable and attentive. The food was outstanding. I'm not sure that I have... More

The food is not so good, the manager is very incompetent so the service is poor. We had a reservation but still had wait a long time. It was not worth it

Although the restaurant is located at the end of an "alley" next to Publix, you would miss find Italian food if that was offputting. Ther staff is pleasant and speedy, Outdoor dining is available. We found reservations were needed.
