In Italy, locals gather to their nearest market, or Mercato, to experience firsthand the variety, freshness and quality the local ingredients have to offer. The market allows for everyone to gather together, indulge and become part of a community.

Our owner Brian Bivona, his brother Executive Chef Matt and our entire team at Mercato aim to provide that experience here for our customers! Each dish is prepared to order and delicately created with the influence of American and Italian cuisine alike. From pastas and flatbreads to savory entrees and the unique Chef specials, we aim to offer an abundance of variety to our customers.

Our mission is to create an environment where everyone feels right at home!
at home because most importantly, we are a family!

So from our family to yours, WELCOME!

When I made the reservation, I must have mistakenly requested outdoor seating. In early April, this is not smart. BUT, there were heaters and we were able to be comfortable throughout the meal. The food was fantastic! We started with the Calamari and Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls, both of which were flavorful, but not too filling. For dinner we had the Short Rib & Polenta and the Pollo Asparagi, both of which were quite good. Definitely will be visiting again!

Great restaurant experience, discovered Mercato a few weeks ago. Was craving a really good burger and mercato kept popping up in our search. Sat at the bar perfectly spaced with dividers, but the best part was Leann who was the nicest and friendliest person we have ever had serve us. The food was outstanding, the bbq bacon burger was perfectly cooked as were the French fries. Very professionally run restaurant from the time you walk in and they accommodated our seating request at the bar. The wine list was very smartly written to match the items on the menu, lots of choices. Will be going back as a regular.

Had lunch with friend for her birthday. The first time been indoor dining since COVID. We had reservations for outside but weather was not nice. They were very accommodating. Our waitress Nicole was the BEST! It was my girlfriends birthday and they surprised us with a piece of GF chocolate cake. So rich and fudge. They have a nice GF menu also which was great for me.

We had an amazing experience! Our reservation was 8:15 on a Friday night. The host explained that they were waiting for the guests to pay their bill so we can be seated. We were in no rush and completely understood. They offered us bar seats for the time being. We waited about 20 minutes until the table was ready for us. Everyone, and I mean everyone working, apologized countless times about our wait! Both managers, both hosts, and our server were so apologetic! We are easygoing and totally didn’t mind the wait, but they insisted on giving us a complimentary appetizer. It was so nice to see how the staff cared about the reservation times. Our server Nicole was perfect! She was so friendly, helpful, and attentive. They brought us whipped ricotta toast as our complimentary appetizer, and we ordered penne a la vodka(meatless) and the spinach ravioli. Everything was superb. We also got the brownie sundae and apple crisp for dessert. We enjoyed everything and will definitely be revisiting soon. Highly recommend for a date night or friends night out.

The restaurant was very loud with conversation and the music was also playing, all of which made it difficult to enjoy conversation at my table. I recommend that when conversation is loud, the music is not necessary and cannot be enjoyed. I feel it would be better to turn the music off under those circumstances.

Great dining experience, felt very safe. Our waitress Nicole was very friendly and attentive as our table has food allergies. In the past I felt the restaurant got very loud, but now with the barriers between tables it helps with the noise. The food was delicious. The only thing is they are only allowing you to sit for a certain amount of time so for 2-4 people it’s 1.5 hours and I didn’t feel that was enough time but I do understand given the circumstances.
