Il Mercato Cafe and Wine Shop is a little gem, with a lovely menu that offers eclectic items and items for vegetarians also! Nice option: to order a full or small portion. Dessert was absolutely yum!

Love that they have two sizes for every entree. I usually leave half my meal and here I am able to eat a great meal without needing either to share or take home

I tried some different dishies. The pasta, any kind, it seams to be made in Italy. I also loved the NY steak with coffè and chocolate. My favorite dessert was hot apple strudel with ice cream.... Gnammy

Went to this Restaurant for the first time. Service was very good. Food was average. Ordered Egg Plant Parmigan no Spaghetti. Portion was very small. They have outside seating which was very nice.

Il Mercato has a menu that changes based on season, chef Emily prepares delicious food with local fresh ingredients. The wine list is very reasonable and good, the atmosphere is cozy and family friendly. For years this place has been one of my favorite, local, great value, easy parking and good service.
