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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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 !

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.

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!
