We had a marvelous experience! With visitors from New York, the four of us loved our food, and the service (great waiter from Napoli). Also enjoyed the ambiance of Espanola Way. We're still talking about that evening!

Reservations were for 7:30pm, had 2 children with us. We ordered spaghetti and meatballs for kids and bruschetta for appetizer we didn't get this until 8:35..... I ordered the lasagna and my daughter ordered bow tie pasta are dishes didn't come until 9:15! The lasagna was inedible... it was very salty, cheese barely melted on top and not even hot. Was so looking forward to eating here but was terrible disappointed!

We spent a relaxed evening at this lovely restaurant. We wanted a quiet table so opted for indoor seating. The dining room was lovely and our window table enabled us to observe the Miami Beach scene. Our waiter was engaging and attentive and the food and wine were very good. We didn’t feel rushed and enjoyed a relaxing evening.

We made a last minute reservation on open table for 6 with no issues at all. The server was full of personality and was actually Italian himself making the experience that much more authentic! Being pregnant and gluten free my options are very limited but they offer gf pasta and the chicken Alfredo was great! It was a little bland for my liking (probably fine to a normal non pregnant person) but with a little scoop of fresh garlic and olive oil it was absolutely perfect! If we ever visit again, it will be our first stop!

Some of the best Italian we have had in all of our travels. Very much enjoyed it and the location was great! Definitely will be going back when we are in Miami again.

We were in Miami Beach on vacation and picked this place based on the reviews and our mood for Italian. Restaurant is located in the beautifully lit Esplanade row of restaurants. Service was phenomenal and so was the food. We wish the restaurant was in our hometown.

We had a reservation and expected a nice table, but were seated in a back corner at a table with a pedestal so large it was difficult to find a place for our feet and when found, were locked in place for the duration. The food and service was very nice, too bad the seating was so uncomfortable. In the future I would ask for a specific section (outside).

The food was absolutely phenomenal! The only reason I am giving it 3 stars is because our service was horrible. My dad had to ask for a glass of wine about 4 times before receiving one. We never got any bread while every other table around us did, and overall nobody checked on us!! Also, I ordered a glass of prosecco that was not fresh and seemed that the bottle was opened for quite some time and then served to me. I would give it a second chance just because our food was absolutely delicious it just the worst service i received at a nice restaurant.

What we ordered:
Burrata Board
Grilled Octopus
Cacio y Pepe
Lasagna
2 Gnocchi

We wanted to show our out of town friends why we love Espanola Way and Mercado did not disappoint. The ambiance is always great. It was very busy due to Valentine’s Day but our table was ready at our reservation time. Our waiter was very pleasant, the food was delicious and presented well. I will definitely be back!
The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is we waited a little long for cocktails, they seated our party of 6 at a small round table that is really meant for 4 so it was very cramped, and my asparagus were a bit salty. Other than those minor things great place!

I was really hoping for some incredible Italian food and was kinda disappointed. The mozzarella slices in my $25ish caprese salad wasn’t very fresh. The food was really just okay, like not bad, but nothing that would make me recommend it or fo back
The beautiful outside seating and friendly and attentive waitstaff made were great. The specialty cocktails were delicious.

First time there. Food was outstanding. Service was friendly and great ambiance. Only negative was smoking allowed in patio seating. We had an asthmatic toddler and nothing was done. Will come back for sure.

I don't recommend Mercato Della Pescheria - Miami Beach because the service was extremely rude, forcing us to consume quickly and leave the table for other customers to use. The waiter who answered us spoke for two opportunities to hurry and filling our glasses with wine to empty the bottle. Unfortunate!

It was the second time I visited this place. Just getting R&R this weekend. The food was fantastic. Wine choices were plenty. Have to be on top of your reservation as this place is well desired. Even if you book time folks are always trying to get in as soon as they can which can distract the host.
