Good food, taste is excellent. Menu not extremely varied and sometimes takes a little more Italian to understand than English but what they do offer on it is of good quality.

Service is great, attentive staff who often spark up conversation. Visited twice - once with family and once with friends and both times were enjoyable; it was also good to be recognised by the staff on the second visit who made me feel even more welcome.

I've had several lunch dates here and it's always busy. Hard to walk in during weekdays unless you want to line up for several minutes. The pizzas are consistently good -- cheesy and full of flavour. Good wine selection. A bit pricey for regular lunch, but worth the money on special days like Valentine's or when you want to celebrate a warm sunny day.

Mercatto was a very enjoyable experience for us and another couple. The food was great - pizza and their fish - nicely served and great service

I have heard a lot of people say the food was very good but to me it was nothing more than average. I have eaten at Mercatto 3 times. Once at this location (pizza was not very good - tomato sauce was plain and lacked depth, crust was too thin and would not support the ingredients), and 2 times at the Eaton Centre. The other meals were equally uninspiring and dull. The best item was a fish soup. The pasta dishes are bland, the fish dishes are small. The prices are too steep for what you get. Dozens of better Italian restaurants can be found around the GTA. Two times out of 3 everyone was disappointed in our group and each time it was a different group of 4 or 5 people.
