Welcome to Mercato Ristorante & Bar! Born in Italy, served in West Chester. The Giannaccari's again draw from authentic recipes for their latest bar-and-restaurant concept, where the exceptional house-made mozzarella and ricotta, brick-oven Neapolitan pizzas and hand-rolled pastas have customers loyal to their brand for last 25 years. The vibe is sleek, with its industrial-meets-rustic accents. The caged pendant lights, vintage barn hooks and tiled white oak are all trendy without appearing too ostentatious.

Our waitress was very nice, but it took a long time for our food to come out and it was cold. We sent back to reheat but it didn’t taste good. Very disappointed we will not be back!

Birthday dinner - was in reservation but never acknowledged. We were seated and waited more than 10 minutes before the server acknowledged our table and that was only after we informed the hostess that no one had come to our table.

I have had great experiences until this dinner. Service was way off - slow, unresponsive, and curt. My fish and risotto were over cooked and bland. We have loved it here in the past so will go again - but it was a very different experience this time.

The food was very good, especially the beet and burrata salad. Our server was wonderful and the outside dining atmosphere was very nice.

Another delicious meal from Mercado. The cocktails, appetizers, and entrees were all prepared perfectly and delivered fresh! The Kennett Square Crostini is sooooo off the charts good! Great service as well. Highly recommend!

Unfortunately, they are understaffed. This was reflected in the service. Our party of four had two pasta dishes, fish entrée and a burger. The burger was requested at medium temp but served well done. The other meals were good. Sitting outdoors in West Chester on a nice day made the experience better.

Food was very good and you can see the kitchen clearly. Service level was okay. Took a while to just to bring a beer, but could see the wait staff fooling around in a backroom. Host staff seating us weren't very friendly. Pretty noisy with music playing and didn't match the dim light vibe. Very good food but overall feels like an overrated place from what I had heard.

I have made reservations for outdoor sitting at 8pm. I had to wait 30 min to be sited.
For next 35 min, till 9.05, server was not there. So we had to leave with no food as it was getting late.

I would give this place 0 stars if possible. We waited 30 minutes before finally leaving because we only had drinks (which were terrible & rejected) at that point

Appetizers were great, so too the entrees . Would have been nice if they offered bread for the table. Also, wait staff seemed a bit busy around the 2 PM hour to provide the check timely. Otherwise, this is a great spot to grab a bite with friends al fresco.

We have been to Mercato many times. Our server was delightful but overworked. Waited 15 minutes for our drinks, 15 minutes for silverware. Two of us had the fish special dover sole and risotto. The fish was overcooked, risotto was dry. We were so disappointed. I will not be going back anytime soon.

Food was pretty good. Alessandro was super nice. For an upscale italian place, a little bread for the table would have been nice.
