We stumbled upon this gem, downtown Olympia, near the farmers market, several years ago. We never heard of it, never noticed it, but when we stumbled in one day-drinking saturday evening, golly, we were thrilled. Very nice staff and quick service. Try the mini donuts...MMMMM!!!!...More

We have dined at Mercato several times before and were always enjoyed the experience. Sadly, today's lunch was very different. I ordered the chicken panini. It was only toasted on one side; the bottom was raw white bread. Meanwhile, the lettuce on the salad was...More

We had a group of 16 for dinner and it couldn't have been better. The servers were exceptional and the food was excellent. So much better than my previous visit. Keep up the great work.

Mercato's has excellent Italian-style food, although sometimes they try a little too hard. Gnocchi doesn't need to be served with duck and nobody really wants your brussel sprouts. I had the New York steak, which was excellent. The mashed potatoes and mushrooms were tasty as...More

Nice setting and good food-steaks, salmon, pasta, artisan pizzas. This is not a “pizza place” but more of an upscale (without being formal) Italian/Mediterranean restaurant. Warm, inviting interior. A bit loud. Good service. Great banquet room. Local regulars & visitors.

Ordered 2 Chop Salads. Very fresh greens, but chicken tasted like canned chicken. Caesar dressing appeared to be simply mayonnaise. Very disappointed. Rattling of noisy dishes all through lunch, although went after 1 pm. Very nice waiter.
