Its busy during the lunch hour weekdays. Have attended several times (at least 15 times over past couple of years), quick service but it is loud (sometimes have to yell to hear across the table). Favourites: ARANCINI, CRISPY CALAMARI, Mains: CAVATELLI, RIGATONI, LAMB CHOPS, PORCHETTA PANINO.

The restaurant went through a Reno recently but what didn't change was the excellent, authentic italian food. I have had a variety of meals here but my new favourite is the steak, potatoes with crispy brussels sprouts which is excellent. Each item on the plate stands on it's own merits. Delicious!

We went to Mercatto for Valentine's Day dinner before a Hockey game, so our reservations were for early dinner. We chose the Valentine's day menu which included an appetizer, main course and dessert. The appetizer was a pork terrine with crispy Parmesan chips. The main was a beautifully prepared filet mignon with root vegetables. The dessert was a delicious lemon... More

Not your typical Italian restaurant. .only 2 pasta dishes to choose from Great salads. Best rice balls I've ever had. $19 is a bit much for chicken, carrots and raisins Please add some carbs. to your main entrées. ..some people were still hungry Also it would help if your dessert menu was upgraded.

Enjoyed with a glass of recommended red wine, good wine list. I had the seafood pasta. It was pretty good, not great. Kids had the brisket and short... More

Delicious food, great ambiance! Just don't take the host' s advice on "his" favourite table....centre booth...in front of the kitchen. Way too warm, even on a colder winter evening. The food selections are varied, and delicious. The Rigatoni, Lasagne,and burger are all great choices.

Went with a reservation on Saturday night. Wasn't very busy, and we felt like we were bothering the staff by showing up. Our waitress was good, food was mediocre and drinks were lousy.

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

Staying in Downtown West

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.
