Mercato Stellina Pizzeria
What Insiders Are Saying
Mercato Stellina Pizzeria is the fancy pizza spot in Bellevue where you should have your next Eastside date.
From the moment we entered this quaint little restaurant we knew we made the right reservation. We were visiting from Canada and wanted a fun but unpretentious dinner. Mercato hit all the marks. The staff were lovely and welcoming. The atmosphere was casual and quaint. The food was delicious with excellent wine pairings.
We instantly felt comfortable and well taken care of.
Such an enjoyable dinner !
Kids enjoyed the pizza and Tiramasu
Love this place! The food is always spot on. The set is warm and welcoming. Pizza was perfect and the gnocchi very flavorful.
if we just had the male server (possibly to owner) serving us, the experience would have been so much better. But, we started with a female server (maybe also the owner —- Asian woman) who was unfriendly and uninviting. There was a younger server (female Caucasian woman) who was pleasant and also would have provided a much better dining experience had we not had the initial unfriendly impression.
and please note - aid only am using gender and ethnicity as descriptives bec it’s unfair to label the entire staff as unfriendly when 2 out of the 3 were great. Unfortunately, the first impression sets the tone.
Great as always!
I’ve been meaning to try this restaurant for over a year after seeing the consistently high ratings. My husband, teenage son and I had dinner there tuesday, 5:30. It was happy hour but early so it was calm and quiet initially. The service was wonderful, the staff were exceedingly friendly and unpretentious. We were there for around an hour and saw the place fill up. What I witnessed was a happy, welcoming, intimate eatery. It appears that there are frequent regulars, resulting in a “Cheers” vibe. Also, the food was delicious. We had the olives/almonds and meatballs appetizers and personal pizzas. I plan to make Bellevue’s Mercato Stellina’s one my regular dining venues.
A truly happy, Happy Hour! We enjoyed a couple of dishes from the HH menu, and shared a salad and dessert. It was perfect - great food (excellent arugula and prosciutto pizza!), nice service, and a wonderful value. We were pleasantly surprised to see that there is more than pizza on the menu. My new favorite Main Street HH!
This is our absolute favorite spot in Bellevue! The food is delicious and fresh, the service amazing, the owner so friendly.
Excellent pizzas on a hot, summer evening! We had a reservation and had to wait about 15 minutes for our table. But the staff was great in making us comfortable while we waited.
Great little spot! The pizza is amazing. Nice happy hour spot!
Another fantastic Friday night at Mercato Stellina! Great food, friends and a lively welcoming atmosphere!

Best pizza in Bellevue and a community feel like Cheers. Manager Drew is a treasure in the community demonstrating world class hospitality in a neighborhood pizzeria.
Great neighborhood spot! Drew, the owner, couldn’t be more welcoming and helpful. Excellent oven fired Italian style pizzas and wine list.
Best pizza in Downtown Bellevue. Having lived in Rome for a summer, Mercato Stellina brings memories of the smell and taste of the pizzerias all over Rome.
The service and friendliness of the personnel and the owner are outstanding. We love coming to Mercato.
We love this as our neighborhood go-to restaurant as it’s intimate, friendly and while some may see the menu as limited, I feel they focus on quality over quantity of choices. Love it!
Cozy neighborhood gem with great food and service!
Good wine list and even better desserts!!!
Once again excellent, introducing a long-time work colleague to the house-made Lasagna (apparently excellent) and I went for a slightly modified pizza. Peroni available and very welcome.
This is my very favorite local eatery. Drew makes all his guest feel like he is welcoming them to his beautiful home. The food is always amazing. We will be back again and again!
If you are in Bellevue, this place makes my favorite pizza! Lasagne appetizer to share, followed by a fennel sausage pizza. Go on wine Wednesday for a treat!
Loved sitting in the little alcove! Thanks Drew! As ALWAYS, outstanding evening- arugula and prosciutto pizza, salad, tiramisu and wine!
I will definitely come back with friends and family.
Cozy + Chic

As always an excellent occasion for entertaining two East Coasters on a visit to the PNW.
Great wine and pizza- perfect ending to the work week!

A Main Street Bellevue favorite. Always warm and welcoming. Owner knows our names and our preferences. It is comfortable and the pizza is light and delicious. Always a pleasure
Great pizza place in old Bellevue.
