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!

Mercator is the place you go because it never lets you down. All the times we have come here, we have never been disappointed and the staff is very cordial and friendly.
Highly recommended as far as we are concerned!

As always, thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Service was great. A little noisier but that was because we dined later than usual and the restaurant was full which is a good thing. We could still carry a conversation. Will definitely be returning!

After a crappy experience in the Hamptons, Mercato was like coming home to a relaxing, delicious, comforting dinner and Anna our server made it every bit extra special by just being so attentive and lovely the entire evening. The food was superb. Don’t let location deceive you, Mercato is a hidden gem!

Food was delicious but AC was not working properly so it was uncomfortably hot & noise was high. Also, our table of 8 was wedged in the middle , too close to the side tables. Good food but not a comfortable experience.

Went for my birthday. Food was great but the AC was not working. Great food but rushed to get out because it was muggy

Responded on July 16, 2021

We appreciate your feedback and apologize for the inconvenience. Due to the intense humidity, we had a leak about a week ago in on of our AC units. We've been doing everything we can to get the matter resolved but it is unfortunately not a quick fix. We posted this issue on our website & social media to try to make our customers aware of our current situation. We are truly sorry it caused you to have a negative experience with us and hope that you will give us another chance, thank you!

The food and service were very good. But when we ordered Martinis they brought it in some funky glass because they ran out of martini glasses! WTF!

Mercato Kitchen & Cocktails
Responded on July 3, 2021

Hi, thank you for your review. We are so happy you enjoyed your overall experience with us and apologize for the miscommunication with our glassware. Our "Coupe" glass is the same amount of ounces as our martini and is a cocktail glass designed for drinks served up. We apologize we were unable to provide you with a typical martini glass, martinis were in high demand on Friday and we use both interchangeably for our up cocktails. We are sorry for the inconvenience and hope to see you again soon!

The restaurant was completely full and the noise level was so bad we could not hear ourselves speak. Service was good though it took long to get our drinks. Food was very good. We go to MERCATO often but in the future I will weekend nights or sit outside which seemed much quieter.

Hi Monica, we truly apologize for the inconvenience of the noise level and wait time on Friday evening. We truly care about our customers and our reputation and wish we would have been given the opportunity to speak with you directly as you have enjoyed our restaurant many times in the past. We noticed you left a negative rating for your food but mentioned it was very good; so we'd love to hear from you further to ensure everything is being prepared to our standards. Thank you for your time

Hi Donna, thank you for your review; we're so happy you enjoyed our food & service! We completely understand & truly apologize for our current outdoor situation. We unfortunately are still awaiting our brand new tables & chairs that we ordered in January. Unfortunately, the pandemic has affected this area of our restaurant as well.

The main dishes and dessert were good. The salmon was a mix of bland flavors. Could’ve used something to spice it up.

Food wise, my biggest complaint was the bread. It was stale.

Service was average. Could not put in the appetizer order prior to the entrees. Once the check was delivered, it was difficult to get the attention of the server to pick up our credit card

We're so sorry you did not enjoy your visit with us. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention so we can ensure all is prepared to our standards. We were not made aware of an issue Saturday but would have been more than happy to rectify the situation. We get our bread delivered fresh daily from a bakery and we will be sure to address this immediately. We are grateful you have previously enjoyed our restaurant and hope that you will give us a chance to make it up to you, thank you Mark
