Mercato is a great place to eat, drink and be merry! Drew is the perfect host. He makes sure you are pleased with your order and will give you suggestions on wine. Drew makes everybody feel at home. Personally I like to sit at the bar in front of Charles and Berta watching them make pizza and everything else on the menu. Last, but certainly not least, Mercato has the best tiramisu in the neighborhood.

Great, relaxed atmosphere with comfortable seating inside or outside. We were hoping for more toppings and cheese on the pizza but the oval shape makes for a lot of crust.

It doesn't get much better than sidewalk seating on a warm summer evening with a bottle of Chardonnay chilling in a bucket, a deliciously refreshing salad with cucumber and melon and perfectly-crusted pizza with sweet copa and basil.

We went for a casual night out and wood fired pizza. We had a reservation. The manager greeted us, sat us, and took our wine order quickly. However it was 20 minutes after that before the waitress came to take our order although she had passed us several times. She was the only waitress for the whole restaurant that night. I don't know if that's normal or if there was a staffing problem that night, but it made for a less than enjoyable evening that night.

Pizza was good, but not exceptional. And be aware, a 20% gratuity is automatically added to the bill.

We have always loved Mercato Stellia and now that we live upstairs in 10000 Main we will most likely end up dining there or getting take out atleast once a week or more. The food and service are always spot on and we love the atmosphere. So happy to have this gem in our building! :)

I have been to this restaurant several times and it has been wonderful each time. Service is great and there is a personal touch that makes you feel like it is just your place. I travel for business in to Bellevue and make a point to stop in each time.

Gnocchi was awful (too dry with shriveled mushrooms) and way too overpriced. Service was not up to par with the added 20% gratuity, which we were not notified about until AFTER the bill came.

After going to manny other artisan Pizza restaurants around Seattle this one just doesn’t live up to their prices, food quality or service fee. On our visit, only one person who seemed to be helping the wait staff seemed knowledgeable or at all helpful. That however didn’t make up for: 1. Ridiculously overpriced and bland Cesar salad (6 small leaves of romaine for $13) where it was difficult to get the plates cleared 2. Pizza that took 30-Minutes to get to our table and we had to ask for plates 3. Several drink glasses that weren’t cleared for most of the meal 4. The automatic tip. I really appreciate the effort here to pay a staff well, however due to the lack of attentiveness, it wasn’t well earned and we won’t be going back.

A gem on Old Main Street - this place has managed to make pizza elegant, as well as creative in composition. Eat outside in good weather - bring your dog, bring your kids, bring your friends. Drink the house wine - good value as far as that is possible these days.

Fantastic as always! This little gem is a superb spot for gathering with friends, intimate sining for two or even a tame family night out. Gluten free or traditional flatbreads are unmatched alongwith tastey apps and farm fresh salads paired with perfect pours! So good!

Mercato Stellina was a very pleasant surprise - the picture on its website doesn’t really do it justice. It’s a tiny place inside, but the ambience is warm and cozy with lots of tea lights, and the servers were so friendly and made sure we were taken care of. But the food...

I’ve never had such excellent gnocchi! And the speck pizza we ordered was really honestly the best part; the items listed on the menu may not sound like they go together well, but trust us, they do. We ordered a large pizza and it went pretty quickly between the four of us, so if you have a group of 3+, consider ordering another pizza to share.

Thank you Mercato Stellina! We’ll be back :)

Came here to celebrate a special occasion and noted that in the reservation notes. Even knowing that, the service was beyond terrible. Large tables that ordered after us were served before us. Restaurant offered complimentary appetizers to make up for delay and even those were not timely. Very poor experience ruined what should have been a lovely evening

Menu is basically pizza and very limited appetizers and salads. All bready items primarily. Great pizza and smoked mozzarella but too bread heavy for my tastes. Great service and wine. I’d look at it as more of a wine bar.
