The artisan cheeses and house-cured meats at Mercato BYOB are perfect for sharing and are paired with sauces and condiments like agrodolce and pickled white grapes. A whole grilled artichoke appetizer will undoubtedly turn you into the vegetable's biggest fan. Heavier dishes, like the Grilled Hanger Steak with yukon gold potato wedge, are equally impressive. Mercato BYOB opens at 4 p.m. The restaurant has a four course tasting menu that is ideal for groups.

Perfect outdoor dining. Safe and warm in an enclosed bubble.
Attentive service without being overbearing. I appreciated that they made sure to confirm our seating preference, since Philadelphia’s Covid restrictions have been changing. We preferred to sit outside, in one of the “bubbles”, and it did a great job of blocking the wind while the space heater packed more of a punch than we expected. The food was truly fantastic and very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend and will absolutely return.
Outdoor dining experience here was so great. We sat in a bubble and felt very safe. The food was incredible. I got the Bronzino which was absolutely amazing and I ate every last bite. My fiancé got the chicken parm and the sauce was one of the best I’ve ever made.
It has been a while since I've been to Mercato. The food and services was A++++. I will definitely be back soon.
I brought my girlfriend here for a Birthday dinner. Her favorite restaurant. It definitely Lived up to expectations. We will be returning here many more times in the future. Highly recommended for a quiet night out with great food and ambiance.
Everything was great! We will definitely be back!
Great food and service as always. Will always recommend, even in the outdoor bubbles!
Mercato's food is always reliably excellent. It was wonderful to eat out while the weather was still nice enough. Most of the outdoor tables were spaced far enough apart. My only issue is that although the propane firelamps were aesthetically beautiful, they did not emanate much heat. They were more for show. On a colder night they would have been useless.
Our favorite 'go to" place in Philly!!! We love the food, the people and the location. It's never disappointing! We love it!
We sat outside in a cute little bubble and had the most delicious meal. This is our favorite byob in the city. Service and food are always great. Don’t miss the meatballs or the pyramid pasta. The fig toast was super tasty.
Great food and service as always. Sat in a bubble tent that was setup outside on the street which was perfect!
The food here is always incredible. Service was also fantastic!
I wish I knew we only had 90 minutes BEFORE we made the reservation. We were rushed through each course, and the host was annoyed when we were taking our time eating & talking. I haven't seen these friends since March so we were taking our time.
It felt like the host (male, mid-30's) was so annoyed with us, even after spending $180 for dinner and leaving a very generous tip.
I understand the stresses of these restaurants, but there's never a need to be rude. Make it clear when people are booking that the res is for 90 minutes.
The noise level was because we were there they day Biden passed 270 and Philadelphia went wide. Mercato is probably our favorite restaurant. Always excellent.
My wife & I celebrated an anniversary at Mercato we loved it. We ate outside and enjoyed every bite.
One of my favorite restaurants in Philly! Great service, ambiance and the food is delicious. Highly recommend
The food never disappoints!
The food was nice but the restaurant closed on us... I won't go there again.
Just a consistent great neighborhood place. Has a special place in my heart.
We ate outside on a great night. The food (all had pasta) was exceptional. We were the kale salad and fig toast. Service was great as well.
We came here for an outdoor meal with COVID19 social distancing and it was great!
First, they have a lovely outdoor setup, with part of Camac street blocked off so tables are nicely spaced for safety, and lovely heater lanterns. It was really beautiful!
Second, the service was excellent. Pleasant, prompt, properly masked.
But most important, the food was delicious! We had the meatball starter. It came with 3 very generous sized meatballs in a rich tomato gravy, with two slices of thick grilled bread - and was totally fantastic. I could have that every day! For entree, I had the Orecchiette with sausage and it couldn't have been better.
One of my favorite meals - from the setting to the food!
Good food, not great service. Didn't love the table set up for social distancing (my table was on the VERY EDGE of the sidewalk and my chair leg fell into an open pipe and the manager did nothing about it).
Remember reatly enjoying this restaurant. Unfortunately, this meal had nothing to do with any previous ones. It was great eating out on Camac street, however the food, Nor the service could compare
Simple, delicious Italian comfort food. Great for a date night, or any occasion really.
It’s was just exceptional. The food , the service and the atmosphere was spot on. Can’t wait to go back !!
Nice outdoor space. Need more heaters. The ones they have are in no position to keep diners warm.
Great service. Accommodated our seating request. Food was outstanding. Will go back soon!
Meal was delish! It was restaurant week, so it was crowded and we did have to wait an additional 25 mins. for our table. Aside from that everything was great. Very tasty.
Date night with the hubby. Celebrating 2 years of homeownership.
A+! Very impressed with the food and the service. Will absolutely return here for dinner sometime.
Great outdoor seating light and ambiance
Went for restaurant week and thoroughly enjoyed everything. Highly recommend the crab fra diavolo!
Mercato is a constantly good restaurant. They are making the most of outdoor dining while they can. Sidewalk is kinda slanted but it is what it is. Had a great night out
Love love love Mercato!! My now husband and I have been coming here for years, after finding it during Restaurant Week initially, and have spent many enjoyable evenings here for date nights, and with family and friends for special occasions. The stuffed meatballs are amazing, all of the pastas are delicious and flavored just right, the garlic bread we had for the first time last night was perfect, and the tiramisu as always was light and incredible. We are moving out of the city in a few weeks and will miss Mercato as our go-to Italian restaurant!!
Great experience. I’ll going back
Food was fantastic! We went during restaurant week and even with a shortened menu, the flavors in each dish were spectacular. There is ample outside seating on a quiet, beautiful street in Old City.
Excellent Italian food. Everything was so delicious, perfectly seasoned and prepared.
We went their for restaurant week and it was 3 courses for $35 dollars. It was well worth it. Both of us never being their had a wonderful first time. We definitely would love go back. Good variety, friendly staff, great area, and delicious food.
Always a great experience. Been coming here for years. The garlic bread was amazing. Actually my first time having it. The trout was more filling than I thought it would be and flavorful. The squid ink pasta was great as well. My date was impressed by her first experience.
I am not someone to usually leave a review but this dinner experience was so horrible I have to comment on it. My girlfriend and I had reservations for dinner during restaurant week this past Friday. Our reservation was for 9:15pm but we were seated at 9:10. We came in with the understanding that it would be extremely busy. Having both worked in the industry ourselves, we understand how stressful and busy it can get and had every intention of being understanding customers. We were not greeted by our waitress until 9:40. We sat at our table for 30 minutes with not even the slightest interaction. When we tried to get our server's attention we were ignored. At 9:40 our server finally opened our bottle of wine, but when we offered to give her our dinner order she walked away. She finally came back around 10pm to take our order. We did not receive our appetizer course until 10:40pm - an hour and a half after being seated. We understand that this was a stressful and busy night for the restaurant, but we were blatantly ignored by our server multiple times when we attempted to say something. We kept giving her the benefit of the doubt but somehow she managed to serve every table except for us. Every table around us not only had their order taken, but received their food, finished eating, paid their bills, and LEFT before we even got our first course. To top off the evening our server gave us the wrong bill which was about $45 more than what our bill should have been. I have never in my life had such awful service and I will not be returning ever again. DO NOT GO TO THIS RESTAURANT!!!!!
