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.

Great time out. The food and service was outstanding. I made reservations to sit outside but when we arrived late afternoon, we felt comfortable dining inside.

Went here to celebrate birthday with friends and food and service were great. Only part that wasn’t great was how behind they were on reservations. We had a reservation for 8 and had to wait 35 minutes to be seated. Otherwise had an absolutely wonderful experience and would go again

Absolutely delicious! Mercato never fails with delicious drinks and food. The waitress was an elementary school teacher and she was great. We shared some laughs and she provided amazing service.

The specials for the day were very tasty as well, would recommend!

Looking forward to the next Mercato visit!

Great experience sitting at a high top close to the bar. It had the closest feeling of sitting at a bar without physically sitting there. We love interacting with the bartender more so than a server. Just personal preference. We had great drinks and great food. The kitchen was accommodating to allergies, which is always important to take into consideration when choosing a place to dine at. Can’t wait to go back.

Dinner was amazing! Food came out quickly and was delicious. Was meant to be sat outdoors for Valentine's Day and they bumped us inside without us even having to ask. Will definitely be returning and telling others

The meal was absolutely delicious. We had the grilled octopus as and appetizer. I was the best we had ever had. I had the salmon on the menu and my husband had the scallop special. We shared the affogato for dessert. I was a wonderful dinner. We will definitely be returning

Some snafus with seating on a busy Saturday night. Waiter was overwhelmed. I suspect this was not an everyday occurrence and will give this restaurant another try as the food was delicious.

Mercato is always a great spot from great food to great drinks. We had grilled calamari to start and it’s one of our favorite appetizers from here. We got the chicken parm and the seafood salad and both were delicious and had generous portions!

We also had both wine and the Mule and both were great!

Everything was wonderful except the restaurant was definitely not following covid guidelines. It was very crowded and people walking around without masks. I won’t go back until it’s safe.

We very much enjoyed our dinner on Wednesday night. Our server was excellent, friendly and efficient. Given that we are in the middle of a pandemic, I thought that Mercato took great care to adhere to the guidelines for dining in. I was comfortable and appreciated that everyone who was not seated and eating was wearing a mask. The food was fantastic as always! I tried the chicken caprese, and it was Mouthwateringly delicious! The pappardelle special was equally tasty. I will certainly return to try other dishes!

Tasty dinner with decent service under less-than-ideal circumstances because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It wasn't an "OUTSTANDING" night out, but we left "fat and happy", and look forward to trying them again, in the not too distant future. 😁
Clearly, C-19 restrictions are out of their control, so I hesitate to NOT give them a 5-star, glowing review... But, all things being equal, and basing my review against "normal", we'll have to go again for a fair judgement.

Had earlier reservation. Table were on top of each other. Thought they would seat every other table. THEY DID NOT. NO SOCIAL DISTANCING WHATSOEVER. If that is a concern, I do not recommend going. I will not.

The dinner was very nice...however, at the end of the meal they sat another table directly next to ours with absolutely no space in between. We chose this Restaurant for the safety of outdoor dining. Even though we were outside, it was as if they were sitting at the same table with us and was not the right thing to do in the current environment.

Can’t eat indoors because of state mandate but Mercato was perfect outdoors in 42 degree weather with the heated fire lamps(which makes the ambiance). Drinks were strong, but I love that. Food was great, the warm bread and dipping sauce is the best!
