Italian
In Italy, locals gather to their nearest market, or Mercato, to experience firsthand the variety, freshness and quality the local ingredients have to offer. The market allows for everyone to gather together, indulge and become part of a community.

Our owner Brian Bivona, his brother Executive Chef Matt and our entire team at Mercato aim to provide that experience here for our customers! Each dish is prepared to order and delicately created with the influence of American and Italian cuisine alike. From pastas and flatbreads to savory entrees and the unique Chef specials, we aim to offer an abundance of variety to our customers.

Our mission is to create an environment where everyone feels right at home!
at home because most importantly, we are a family!

So from our family to yours, WELCOME!

Service is always so friendly and efficient. The food is always the best. Love the salads and salmon. I had the special salmon which was good but the one on the menu is much better. If you get a chance try this place out. It's really good.

Mother’s Day dinner. Unfortunately was not the food or the service we are used to with Mercato. The appetizers were very good but the main dishes, especially the chicken bruschetta was not even par. Being the good experiences outweigh the bad.. we will give it another try. Maybe it was because of the holiday?

Hello, thank you for your continued support; we are so glad you enjoyed your experience with us. We appreciate your feedback and are in the process of updating our outdoor space to make it more comfortable for our guests! We had to think fast last year during the pandemic to expand our outdoor seating. Unfortunately due to COVID we have been experiencing product shortages & shipment delays. We are awaiting the arrival of our new furniture and think you'll love what we have in store for you all!

We enjoyed our meals but the grilled calamari was burnt
Even though our waitress Nicole was great one big issue we had was that she didn’t have anyone of us taste the wine after she opened the bottle. To say the least the wine was horrible and sweet We could not believe they didn’t have latte or cappuccino at an American Italian restaurant.
We would go back and the answer would be no.

Mercato Kitchen & Cocktails
Responded on April 29, 2021

We apologize for your experience & appreciate you bringing this to our attention. Nicole's been with us for a few years & truly cares about her customers. We understand she made a mistake but know she won't forget moving forward. We're very sorry for the inconvenience, we have been experiencing issues with our espresso machine & are waiting for our new one to be delivered. We understand your visit was underwhelming but this is not the standard here and we hope you will give us another chance.

When I arrived for my confirmed reservation There seem to be some issue. It was then realized they had given my reservation to somebody else by mistake. We were then offered an odd shaped table in the corner. This is not the first time I have had a problem with a reservation made there. It was very upsetting to have it happen again

When I made the reservation, I must have mistakenly requested outdoor seating. In early April, this is not smart. BUT, there were heaters and we were able to be comfortable throughout the meal. The food was fantastic! We started with the Calamari and Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls, both of which were flavorful, but not too filling. For dinner we had the Short Rib & Polenta and the Pollo Asparagi, both of which were quite good. Definitely will be visiting again!

Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy to hear you truly enjoyed your evening and our food! The weather in April can definitely be unpredictable but we are happy you felt safe & comfortable dining on our patio. You ordered two of my favorite appetizers, the Eggplant Capellini is another one I highly recommend for your next visit. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
