Stayed at the Trump Hotel but decided to have dinner at Local Mercatto. Great experience from the Greeter to the Waitress to the Waterboy(unfortunately people don't give enough appreciation to). Amazingly delicious appetizers (had the Niagra prosciutto). Main course was KC Strip-Black Angus cooked to perfection. Thank You Cooks A Special Thank You to Manager Davis for being so attentive....

Good selection of pastas and pizzas. Its a sit down restaurant, but the service is quick. They also do take-out, and have a good selection of juices and non-alcoholic drinks if you have to go back to work. They also serve alcohol if you've had a bad day or want to celebrate a good day.

I visited on November 23 for the lunch hour with a business client at the Bay Street location. We chose to sit at the kitchen counter. Thought it might be interesting and fun. Ordered a wild mushroom soup and a pasta Bolognese. I noticed the chef took a ladle and took two scoops out of a Tupperware container into a... More

I went for lunch to meet for business but my friend had to cancel. So I decided to eat alone! The pasta I had - rigatoni with braised rib al fredo sauce was quite tasty. The service was excellent and the place was really hopping! The menu was a bit limited for lunch choices - more of a dinner menu... More

Visited here recently for first time since renovation and new name - Locale Mercatto. Very good service and agree with earlier review that wine is pricey. Limited menu that focuses on a few dishes. Pasta is very good and recommend calamari appetizer.

Restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel, and had good reviews. Went for an early dinner pre race, looking for good quality food and wine. They did not disappoint, menus was creative, and wine list had enough choices. Waitress was a delight, explained the creative choices, recommended some lovely options and we enjoyed everything we chose. Each plate was... More

My husband and I dined here last Tuesday (20/9). This was our second Italian meal whilst holidaying in Toronto but it was by far the best. From the moment we walked in to the moment we left the service and hospitality was fantastic. Very warm welcome from Danielle who was on reception duties when we first arrived. Our waitress was...

This restaurant caught my eye as it appears to have gotten a make-over : new name seems to be "Locale mercatto". I was looking for a light snack and a wine and chose to sit on the new little patio space at the entrance. In retrospect this space is quite challenged by the busy Bay street location but on a...

I had a difficult time trying to decide what to eat because the menu items appeared to be so creatively designed. I was looking for a light lunch and ordered the Fogo Island Cod. I really enjoy having fish and this was one of the finest pieces of card I have had in a long time. The portion was perfect... More

Great service, took a little time for dinner to be ready but they compensate the time well. Try the Long Bone Ribeye! 👌🏻

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
