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 !

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!
