Order the pasta!!! Their pizzas are delicious, the anti-pasta is great but the pasta is hands-down the best. They start your meal with yummy bread with oil. Wine list is large and atmosphere is romantic but also a nice place to gather with friends!

Seated right away at a quiet table, service was excellent by Bryan L! The food and beverage was exactly what we wanted and prepared exactly the way we like it. The Dessert was outstanding! Will definitely return.

If the food wasn't good enough, the service and staff at Mercato is top notch. Always friendly and always ready to give a recommendation. The butternut squash ravioli is to die for
