Had a lovely night, food & service was great. If I had to find a negative it would only be that not wine is a bit pricey. Would probably drink more if a bit cheaper in price.

It was a special occasion for my family, the first time in 4 years the mum, the dad, and the two children shared a meal! The environment, food and service was impeccable and the shiraz that was recommended was superb. Thank you

The service was extremely slow, the food was virtually thrown down on the table, it took ages for the food to arrive and when it did it was not worth the wait. I would not go there again. Before it changed management was dined there often and loved the food and service but not now. Don't go there.

We had a lovely dinner at Mercato with our young family. The waiters were pleasant and accommodating being considerate of not placing food in front of the baby. At 5:30pm it’s hard to comment on the ambience but it suited us perfectly as we knew we weren’t bothering any other patrons. The food came quickly (perhaps because there weren’t many other patrons at this time) and the pizzas were scrumptious. The base was fluffy and chewy. Love that we can take our family somewhere a bit above the average family restaurant for those special occasions. Thank you Mercato!

This place used to serve delicious breakfasts! They were always a little pricier than other restaurants but we didn't mind because the food & service were great. Menu has changed and so has the layout of the restaurant. Poor service & not great value for money.

Fantastic authentic Italian food with seasonal menu changes. This is such a great little place with attentive staff. The only downside is it is quite noisy due to hard surfaces and large family groups dining. It's quite hard to have a conversation.

I visited Mercato e Cucina with 2 girfriends. We would have had a great night - the food was delicious, the waitress was attentive without being obtrusive BUT we were sitting next to a table of 10+ women who got louder and louder the later it got. It was very difficult to carry on any sort of conversation over the noise.
We asked if it was possible to move tables - we should have done this well before coffee. The waitress was very happy to find a quieter table and completely understood why without us having to say anything about the noise.

. Food so fresh and efficient service. Not too much on menu so you know everything is freshly made. Antipasta plate was great mixture of meats. bread. olives. My kids love the pizza we had to have two. I am very picky with calamari. again so tender and yummy. waiter was so nice and always made sure we didnt need anything . great atmosphere. We have been quite a few times to eat and buy meats/bread . always happy to go back. thank you Maria, Cathy and all.

Overall very enjoyable evening. Waiters showed just the right amount of attentiveness and the food was great. Only minor criticism was their were a lot of kids running around which was a little annoying. More than happy for lots of kids to be at the venue but not running around my table when I'm dining out.

We had an awesome night there in the 'VIP' wine room. The service is fantastic - very attentive and patient as we tried to decide what to eat and drink from such a great menu. We invited people who had never been there before and they were very impressed with everything. As a regular diner there I knew it would be good, but this was confirmed even more by the extremely positive reaction of our guests.

The service was great and the food was excellent and very well priced.
Unfortunately the wine list continues to shrink, the selection and quality has certainly become way too limited. Whilst you don't need to match the original cellar that was there when the restaurant first opened, the current cellar selection is just very ordinary for a restaurant of this level and style. I realise stocking wine can be very expensive but please believe me the current stockings are unacceptable, a good cellar can be established without breaking the bank.

This restaurant never ceases to deliver. Their service is attentive and friendly without being overbearing. All the crew work seamlessly to provide a fantastic service and taste sensation. Food is like Mamma used to make, authentic and traditional Italian - perfect pizza, pasta, gnocchi, risotto and of course, fish and various meat options. Don't come here if you want pineapple on your pizza or a "meatlovers" pizza but if you crave the best prosciutto crudo with rocket on your pizza this is the place. We had the prosciutto crudo, parmigano & rocket pizza, Quattro stagioni pizza, kid's pizza (kids are catered for beautifully), gnocchi with wild mushrooms, Snapper special of the day and our perpetual favourite, an accompanying salad of rocket, pear and parmegiano. Of course we will be back.

The food was good but over priced. The service was not good - when I suggested that the salt grinder didn't work the wait staff told me that I was wrong! not a good look. The retail area was a huge disappointment - my friends came ready to 'buy up big' but there was hardly anything to buy. What's happening - the place looks like it is closing down. The coffee from the bakery was good.

There was plenty and it was all delicious and washed down with 2 bottles of Sauvignon Blanc. Desserts were really excellent too. Very reasonable and highly recommended
