Mercato Stellina Pizzeria
The wine was wonderful. The pizza was terrible. Uncooked raw dough. It was like eating frozen pizza.
I am sorry but a clay wood burning stove will make a huge difference. I am very concerned that the reviews online do not give truth to the restaurant.
We love Drew and the rest of the Mercato Stellina family. And eat there often.
One of my absolute favorites! The food is awesome (LOVE the gluten free pizza crust!) and the people/service even better!
It’s a small space that feels warm and welcoming once inside. The waitstaff were all incredibly attentive and helpful and made the best wine recommendations. The ambiance is perfect for a romantic dinner or outing with friends. The pizza is amazing (highly recommend the one with anchovies) and we will definitely be back to try other menu items.
Pizza is obviously very subjective. With that in mind, my wife and I could think of 3 places, off hand, where the Neapolitan style pizza is better.
Dessert, wine, charcuterie and service were great though!
Awesome food, wonderful and kind service, great value.
Drew and Joe are amazing
Outstanding pizzas and salads. Much care is given to the freshness of the ingredients and the service. The restaurant is small but does not feel cramped. Reservations are a must. Noise level is high.
Probably best italian pizza on the Eastside.
Quaint, rustic, fresh, & authentic. Fun service staff, great wine list and for a compact menu, everything from the meatballs, gnocchi and pizza were amazing! Oh and order dessert!
The food is amazing. The ambiance warm and friendly.
Always a great time! #axo #gocougs!!
Like dining in your favorite uncle’s Italian kitchen.
Fabulous place for authentic pizza, fabulous service, and a cozy atmosphere!
The pizza was incredible. The charcuterie board was amazing. The staff were friendly and helpful
The pizza was superb. Best Caesar salad I have had in a long time..Service friendly and attentive..
We love Mercato! The food is always spot on with Charles in the kitchen and we keep coming back because of DREW! He is AMAZING and ALWAYS great!
Excellent ambiance and food. Please bring back that unbelievable lasagne!!
Food quality is outstanding! Great salads! The meatballs are the best I’ve eaten anywhere and the pizzas are pretty great too. The owner is usually in the restaurant and very friendly and outgoing to his guests. Highly recommended for a casual dinner out.
Drew and team always make you feel welcome. Great food and value!
An overall great experience. The owner and staff are warm and responsive. The food is amazing. I only wish I lived in the Bellevue area so I could come on a regular basis.
Mercato Stellina is my favorite restaurant in Bellevue for a casual, relaxed dinner. The staff is super friendly and very attentive. Such a comfortable environment with great food. I heartily recommend their meatball appetizer -- superb!
Consistently FANTASTIC! In particular, love the Peach Caprese and the Speck pizza with peach, prosciutto and mint! Yum! And... of course, Drew, Charles & Chris! Missed Evelyn and Britta.
Great wood-fired pizza; the polpette (meatballs) and crostini was excellent as well.
We love the atmosphere and food at Mercato! Highly recommend! Fantastic customer service by Drew!
Always enjoy our food, service and camaraderie while at Mercato Stellina! Thanks!!
From the moment we entered this quaint little restaurant we knew we made the right reservation. We were visiting from Canada and wanted a fun but unpretentious dinner. Mercato hit all the marks. The staff were lovely and welcoming. The atmosphere was casual and quaint. The food was delicious with excellent wine pairings.
We instantly felt comfortable and well taken care of.
Such an enjoyable dinner !
Kids enjoyed the pizza and Tiramasu
Love this place! The food is always spot on. The set is warm and welcoming. Pizza was perfect and the gnocchi very flavorful.
if we just had the male server (possibly to owner) serving us, the experience would have been so much better. But, we started with a female server (maybe also the owner —- Asian woman) who was unfriendly and uninviting. There was a younger server (female Caucasian woman) who was pleasant and also would have provided a much better dining experience had we not had the initial unfriendly impression.
and please note - aid only am using gender and ethnicity as descriptives bec it’s unfair to label the entire staff as unfriendly when 2 out of the 3 were great. Unfortunately, the first impression sets the tone.
Great as always!
I’ve been meaning to try this restaurant for over a year after seeing the consistently high ratings. My husband, teenage son and I had dinner there tuesday, 5:30. It was happy hour but early so it was calm and quiet initially. The service was wonderful, the staff were exceedingly friendly and unpretentious. We were there for around an hour and saw the place fill up. What I witnessed was a happy, welcoming, intimate eatery. It appears that there are frequent regulars, resulting in a “Cheers” vibe. Also, the food was delicious. We had the olives/almonds and meatballs appetizers and personal pizzas. I plan to make Bellevue’s Mercato Stellina’s one my regular dining venues.
A truly happy, Happy Hour! We enjoyed a couple of dishes from the HH menu, and shared a salad and dessert. It was perfect - great food (excellent arugula and prosciutto pizza!), nice service, and a wonderful value. We were pleasantly surprised to see that there is more than pizza on the menu. My new favorite Main Street HH!
This is our absolute favorite spot in Bellevue! The food is delicious and fresh, the service amazing, the owner so friendly.
Excellent pizzas on a hot, summer evening! We had a reservation and had to wait about 15 minutes for our table. But the staff was great in making us comfortable while we waited.
Great little spot! The pizza is amazing. Nice happy hour spot!
Another fantastic Friday night at Mercato Stellina! Great food, friends and a lively welcoming atmosphere!
Friendly service and tasty food. Good choice for family dining or date night.
Always love the team at Mercato! Very welcoming and make every dinner a memorable experience! Pizza is the best in the city!
Our favorite neighborhood dinner place!
