    Mother’s Day wasn’t that great. Took my family for Mother’s Day, was crammed in a 4 top with a party of 5 even though there were other tables about to leave and be turned over. Our order was “missed” by the kitchen and the whole restaurant got their meals before we did. I tried to diplomatically express my upset and the waiter apologized and gave us free gelato. Overall, it was a disappointing episode.

    Much different ambience than expected. Seems to be a perfect place for families with young kids. Slightly disappointed in the pizza. Got two pies and they were both a little undercooked and very floppy. Still delicious though because it's pizza. Gelato is fabulous and I would return to this location for gelato again for sure. May stick with the Shadyside location for pizza though.

    We love eating at Mercurio's after seeing a movie at the Waterworks. Our server, Gianna was great. She is so personable and handled our food order very efficiently. This pizza is our absolute favorite--Pizza Del Re and Margharita Con Buffalo.

    First visit to Mercurio's. Had reservation, was seated right away. Food was all delicious and affordable ~ we had bruschetta, dough balls, pizza, gelato. Red sauce is so yummy! Great selection of draft beer, to include locals Arsenal & Dancing Gnome. ❤️ All staff were friendly but a special shout out to our server, Michelle. She was super attentive, friendly, fun, and simply great to interact with. She made the experience extra great. 🙌 Look forward to returning!

    We sat at a table next to the pizza oven, which my son thought was great! One of the guys making pizza yelled at one of the young girls working over a cup of water she brought him. It was loud, he yell “Oh my god” and told her that it was wrong. Everyone noticed and you could tell she was embarrassed. She was young, not ok in my book!

    Mercurio’s has great food and great staff! We had a large party (11) to celebrate a birthday. We made a reservation and had a great experience! All the food we ordered from anti pasta to pizza to pasta to paninis was great! We were able to bring in our own cake which was appreciated. Highly recommend!!

    Mercurio’s was slammed and our food took awhile to arrive but everything was amazing! Our server kept us updated and was so positive even though it was incredibly busy. We haven’t had a bad meal yet and the Gelato is always a favorite.

    The restaurant was busy so service was slow. We started with the Arancini balls which were delicious. The house salad was also good. However, the caprese salad was inedible. It was so bitter and there was very little glaze on it. The table got pizzas and a calzone. They were all fine but nothing special. Not a place 8 would likely go back to

    The pizza and fried dough were excellent! The only issue with the pizza is that they cut the pie before they put on many of the toppings. All of the toppings were falling off trying to pick up the pieces. The homemade pasta was quite heavy and doughy, almost as of it was overworked and super starchy. The pasta sauces were excellent. Service was a bit rough. 1 drink say poured at the bar for about 15 minutes without a single server questioning why it was there. Had to direct our server to bring it. Needed extra napkins, had to ask a couple of times. Wasn’t told that an appetizer of fried dough would take longer. All other food was brought out before the dough, then we were told it takes awhile.

    We used to love the food here and I’m not sure what happened last night. First we were told 2 of the 3 pizzas we ordered were not available because they were new (despite being on the menu). Fine, ok we like other items… 2 of the three pizzas came out extremely soggy. While still edible it’s a bummer at $20+ a pop. Scraped off toppings and left the soggy crust on plate. Hopefully it was just a bad night. Service was great.

    Hands down Top 3-5 pizza spots in Pittsburgh. Shadyside location is as equally great overall. Great pizza selections, gluten free crusts available. I wish there was Build Your Own pizza option. This is A+ quality, if you're tired of "thick crust, get cold quick, made with processed toppings" pizzas on every corner now - this is your spot, the place to be! Our Top Recommendation 100% of times!

    Same wonderful pizza as the Shadyside location, with a larger (and delicious) menu that includes pasta dishes and the ability to make a reservation. Less diversity in the diners but that's a direct result of the suburban location.

    I thought the pizza was a little bland (I had the prosciutto pizza with red sauce). My friend had the primavera and thought it was also a bit bland. Service was timely. It was interesting that the server was engaged in banter exclusively with my companion and rather ignored my presence. We got takeout gelato, which was excellent. The ambience was fine. Of note, they do have a double door (ie foyer) so on a cold day you are not getting blasted with cold air whenever someone enters or leaves the restaurant. If someone really wanted to go there, I would go back, but otherwise would try another place first.

    Service was not good. Allergen orders were not correct. and a very ignorant manager with an attitude who charged us for their mistakes. This place doesn’t compete with the Shadyside locations authentic Italian service.

    Had been wanting try Mercurio’s so finally made a reservation. First if you are coming from the one side of the restaurant there is no signage for the restaurant. The salad was very good to start, the ingredients on the pizza were very good. The pizza was charred on the bottom and the pizza could not hold the toppings, two definite no‘s on a Neapolitan pizza Will try again

    They canceled our reservation 90 mins before. Reservation was made 24 hours in advance. "Sorry, we have a private party tonight, system should not have accepted it." This was on thanksgiving eve, leaving us very little time to find another reservation to another restaurant. Pathetic. Ruined the night plans and acted like it was no big deal. I would guess they are liars that work there since they blamed their system for accepting the reservation. I will never spend money here.

    We always love eating at Mercurio's after the movies. This is the best thin crust pizza in the area. My favorite is their award-winning Pizza Del Re with truffle oil. Delicious. The wait staff are very personable and work hard.
