Mercato e Cucina Ratings and Reviews
. 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.
8 of us enjoyed lunch here. To start, we shared 3 pizzas followed by the Gnocchi, the Duck Fusilli and the Beetroot Risotto and 2 salads. 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
Went for Valentines dinner and was pleasantly surprised food and service was excellent! Normally on these occasions the food and service with a set menu is under par, but not this time. We did have an early dinner (6pm), so it wasn't busy yet. Highly recommended!
My Fiancé and I loved everything about our experience at Mercato Cucina.
From the moment we walked in until the very end when we went home with restaurant made bread.
The staff were very helpful and made sure we were looked after.
The food, my goodness. From the very first dishes our antipasto then mains were amazing we really enjoyed it. We also enjoyed our glass of red and wanted to company it with a platter of cheese and asked the waiter if it was possible... he said he would ask the chef.
He came back and told us the chef would be more then happy to make the cheese platter for us. The chef made a beautiful plate with cheeses from all over the world with fruit and dried grapes. And to finish off we had deserts that tasted amazing. Our experience was one we will not forget. And will go back to.
The food here was excellent, except for my partners meal. He asked for his serlion steak cooked medium but it came well done and it was tough meat. For the price we paid for this meal it was not worth it. A bit disappointed. I would recommend this restaurant as the food was very tasty but I would not go back myself because even though food was nice the service was very slow and the attitude from some waiters were very rude.
We celebrated my partners birthday here and when the cake was brought out there was no knife to cut it and had to wait nearly 10 minutes for a knife.
Every time we asked for a drink it took a minimum of 10 to 15 minutes to bring our drinks and some times it was only 1 beer we asked for. It should not take 10 minutes to bring a beer to the table.
Having been a regular in the coffee and deli area of Mercato e Cucina in Gladesville, we were happy to find the dining restaurant followed up the same warm Italian-style family service and good-hearted meals. Service and the chefs' work was all very enjoyable - the menu interesting and the delivered meals - both pastas and the fish and pork - interesting and value-able.
We will continue to regard Mercato highly and look forward to further visits to this slightly out-of-the-way-of the-usual restaurant.
Our waiter was hard to understand and he left or finished his shift half way through our evening. This meant no other waiter specifically looked after us. We waited ages for our desserts to be take and had to call a waiter for drinks. It is fairly expensive.
This is the third time we have eaten at the Restaurant and it did not fail to please us again in terms of the food and wine. We were a party of 6 people having a Christmas get together as well as celebrating a 70th Birthday. We did find the restaurant a little noisy but for the time of year and good cheer around that is to be expected. Due to a misunderstanding one meal order was incorrect but the matter was rectified without quibble and the correct meal provided speedily. We enjoyed a Sicilian Pinot Grigio with our food. Staff were most pleasant and friendly. We will be back.
I found the service to be quite slow but they were very friendly, we had to keep flagging them down to make orders etc but when they did come over they were very friendly. The food was really good and the portion sizes were so generous. meals were served in a timely manner and the variety was great.
Food is good, but main meal servings are very small. We were hungrier after dinner than we were before dining. My guests shared the same view and were even compelled to complain about it to our waiter. I don't complain. I vote with my feet and it will be a long time before my wife and I dine at MeC again.
We had read some poor reviews so were a little nervous coming here with our friends. Although we made the table booking well in advance we were taken to the worst table in the restaurant. Next to a very large group in a walkway. We asked to be moved to a quieter area and ended up sitting next to the cold meat cabinet. In spite of that bad beginning we had a great night. The service was excellent and food delious. A little over priced for a cafe but a great night.
