“Delicious!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Love the relaxed atmosphere! We have been here for dinner, but love to drop in for a mid afternoon snack. The menu is slightly different than the evening one, but still wonderful selections. The mushroom polenta is earthy and savoury but no matter what you choose, each dish is satisfying. So go ahead and sample and share. Have wine with your snack and if there is room, share one of the yummy desserts. Enjoy!

“Very good lasagna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Good downtown location on Spring Garden Road. Good Italian food. The lasagna was the best I have ever had in a restaurant. The menu is a bit pricy; however, the food is good (you get what you pay for). The staff are very friendly.

“Great Dining Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

Crowded and noisy, this reaturant bubbles with locals and tourists enjoying fine food and good wine. We ate here our first night in Halifax and returned to enjoy it again on our last night. Wait staff is attentive. The menu has options for all appetites. We both ate fish dishes which were excellent. Be sure to make a reservation or be prepared to wait a while for a table.

“Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

My husband had the cod and I had linguine with shrimp - both were excellent. As others have reported this is not the spot for a quiet dinner...it's very loud and I found it hard to hear my husband across the small table. Our waiter was just ok...everything seemed to take forever, that said it was 7:00 on a Friday evening and the place was jumping, so I'm sure he was busy covering all his tables.

“Il Mercado reinvented????”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

I recently ate at this reinvented Halifax restaurant. It remains noisy and too crowded to really enjoy your dinner without taking in the conversation at the next table as the tables are very close together. Sound echoes and it is very loud. The primavera salad was good but over dressed. The Ossobucco was excellent. Unfortunately the service was substandard. We waited for 40 minutes for our first drink and the three course meal took over three hours,not by our choice.
