Dear Patron I apologize at the noise of the dough mixer during the "off hours." Unfortunately, as you know it is during these hours in which we prepare for service. Part of the appeal at bar Mercurio is the open kitchen concept which provides an...More

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its
most stylish high-rise residences and heritage
buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden
arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel
from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of
the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools,
jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill
Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and

Bar Mercurio is a small family run restaurant downtown Toronto, with a strong focus on quality and freshness. We hand make our pasta and agnolotti, our pizza dough comes from a long tradition going back to the family in Italy, our burrata in hand stretched in house. Our wines are carefully selected to compliment a simple and elegant pizza margarita to a bison strip-loin with fresh truffles. Our care and commitment comes to the table - we make the culinary dream happen. Buon Appetito!
