We celebrated my friends 40th birthday on Monday. The food was delicious and Kris our server was very knowledgeable and had great recommendations. We will definitely be coming back!
Very nice staff and a cute spot! I thought the food was rather mediocre for the price, though. I don’t plan on returning.
Off Night? Tomato Bisque was so salty, had to send it back! Tiny portion of Branzino was also salty. Lasagna was very good!
Pricing themselves out of the market especially with an $18 meatball appetizer (Yes $18).
Probably will not be back, way too many other Italian options in the Denver area.
Fantastic snowy day lunch! Amazing food. The salmon was perfect.
We love Cafe Mercato and dine there frequently. Their food is always consistently good and the service is great.
Food just average. Not great, not bad. Nothing special. That being said, I am extremely critical so the average diner would probably be satisfied. Service was great. Great wine list.
Amazing time and amazing restaurant. Patio seating followed all covid precAutions. Amazing food
Mercato does it right...consistent food and service! TY for being a staple...
Looking for a quiet, enjoyable evening. Great food, excellent service, quality wine list. Well, look no further. Cafe Mercato fits the bill. We have dined there on several occasions and always enjoyed ourselves.
The dining area was closed, so we sat on the covered patio with space heaters. It was very quiet, maybe too quiet, we could hear all the conversations of the other dinners very clearly haha, but not a huge deal! The service was great and the food was very tasty. I'd definitely recommend.
Always consistent, always excellent. Thanks for being open and continuing to be available for your local fans during these unusual times!
Our first time here and it was excellent ! Will definitely be back. Menu with great variety and everything was very imaginative and excellently prepared. Very good on all the Social Distancing stuff too. Quiet, intimate dining space, and nice bar/TV area as well.
I had the Fettuccine Alfredo and it was great. My son gave two thumbs up on the chicken parmigiana (he is a connoisseur ) The Mrs had Chicken Marsala which was tender and scrumptious. This is a great Southern Italian Restaurant!
Love this place we ear there quite a bit
Always love the food at Café Mercato. With the divine weather in November got to eat outside. Service was attentive and helpful. Simply a divine lunch. Thank you
My family and I ALWAYS enjoy eating at Mercato! I feel like family when I come. They are doing a GREAT job with COVID protection. Lovely pastas and extensive wine list. Wish the bread were better, but that won't keep me away.
Great food, and service! Dominique, Gustavo, Kris, Rico and Shelly are all pros!
Have a meal here. Food is very good. You will like it and they are locals!
We don't get to eat here often enough, living nearly 30 miles away, but it was such a delight to enjoy an amazing meal!! We felt very comfortable eating indoors, despite Covid, because of their attention to guest health and safety. Outstanding food, as always!
Appreciate care with Covid. Food is always perfect.
Cozy atmosphere, excellent service and food was delicious!
Disappointed from previous dining there. Too much butter on fish. The butter was way too much taking from the delicate flavoring I expected. The bread at the table was mediocre to say the best. Previously (months ago, or maybe a year ago) I was totally happy with this same meal.
Our waiter, Rashid, was outstanding! We had a delightful dinner and an enjoyable evening dining outside
Outstanding service and amazing food, as usual. We are new to the area, and Cafe Mercato has quickly become our favorite restaurant. Dani and Lauren are great! And Rico always delivers our food with style and a smile! Try the whole wheat spaghetti! ~ Jason & Jill
Love the gorgeous outdoor setting. Also loved they are the only Denver area restaurant that has taken our temperature before dining. Appreciate the safety precautions. The food is exceptional and the service impeccable. Can’t wait to go back
Great find! Food is delicious, drinks are great, and the atmosphere is quaint.
Very pleasant patio. Nice lunch menu with plenty of choice. Delicious pesto chicken sandwich.
Good food with an outdoor patio setting. Pasta choices are always good.
We enjoy the east patio for covid-safer outdoor dining. Ambience and setting are very nice. Chef always accommodates my wife's food sensitivities/allergies. Halibut special is a fave of hers.
Fantastic Italian cuisine. Wood fire burning pizza oven. Great quality! Nice venue .
Thank you for the great service and meal during this crazy time. Our greeting was friendly, and while outside seating was full we were able to sit next to the 'garage window' opening. Seating inside was socially distanced too. Thank you for a great meal and evening out!
Wonderful! The food, the service and the atmosphere (on the patio). THANK YOU
The fusilli pasta is my favorite Italian dish in Denver!
Only the dessert was a disappointment. The rest of the meal and service was excellent. The cheesecake was probably the worst I've ever had, especially in such a fine restaurant. I had to send it back and get something else.
Always our go to neighborhood Italian restaurant ! It never disappoints with food, service, ambience and price!!! We always take different friends who don’t live in the neighborhood there, and they are always envious that we have such a great Italian bistro so close!
Always good food and we are picky.
This is a "go-to" restaurant for my family when we would like something special. The food is wonderful (just had the lasagna for the first time and it was fantastic). The service is an even easy pace which allows one to relax. Social distancing is done well also. Lovely by-the-glass wine list for both reds and whites. The bread. . .that could be better but seems to be a chronic issue unfortunately.
Excellent menu, excellent wine list (by the bottle & the glass), excellent service (who got pulled away here & there on a busy evening). Food was fantastic. This food, the wine & the atmosphere at this price-point is an excellent value & will be among the top choices on our list.
