Mercato e Cucina
Amazing food, great service. Top class food, high quality food and presenation
Great food, easy parking, warm and friendly service and good value
Lovely for a night out as a couple, or with a small group of friends.
This place still has the flavours and if you haven't been before it's worth a try. On the night we went the wait staff were friendly and attentive but the service was quite slow. There was nearly ten minutes between all the mains arriving at the table with the pasta coming last by which time the steaks were almost cold. Also for those that are not native Calabrese it might be worth warning a 14 year old there will be so much 'Nduja in the pappardelle only a true chilly lover is going to find it pleasant. The portion sizes were a bit on the lean side for the price so the value feels like its slipped a bit. We wont be rushing back to what once was a family favourite.
The automatic booking and confirmation was simple and straightforward. The tables were spaced appropriately. We ordered 2 first courses to share between 2 couples and 4 different main courses, all delicious. The Shiraz by the glass was very nice. We arrived early. The concrete floor makes conversation harder if the restaurant is fuller. We will be back.
Love my Truffles. This was by far one of the most well thought out truffle degustation menus I have had in some time. The menu really showcased truffles by matching truffles to ingredients that enhanced the truffle experience. The menu was beautiful executed and every dish was a mouth fill of joy. My favourites courses was the amazing desert and the gnocchi was the best I have ever had. Soft and silky with lashing of truffle. I was in heaven.
Please can we have another truffle night!!!!
Fantastic food and service as always ! A great place never disappoints
Great food, fantastic and service but not to fast- it didn’t feel like they were rushing us out of there, would definitely recommend and will be back
Great restaurant. Had three courses and wine. Lamb Skewer and Arancini Entrees were tender/tasty. Barramundi and Crab Meat spaghetti mains were fantastic and finished with Nutella Pizza and Ferrero Rocher Gelato - perfect. Had a nice Rose wine. Service was attentive and friendly. Great atmosphere as well. Highly recommend.
Great experience overall!
My friend had no idea this was a hidden gem in Gladesville...we will be back for sure.
Also the Rose is highly recommended
The food here is consistently delicious and service always friendly. Can always count on having a great night here.
My family enjoyed the evening at Mercato e Cucina. The staff was friendly and helpful with recommendations about the menu. The food is delicious!
Service with a smile. Food was great. That’s why we keep coming back.
Very good quality food. Good service and the prices are reasonable.
We went there for Valentines Day dinner. We didn’t get any drink until 30mins after arriving. After 1hr and 10 mins despite repeated requests we had only one of the three entrees on the set menu. They were clearly struggling to serve people on time but no one would have an honest conversation and tell us what was going on. We just left and had to buy McDonalds since we never got any more food
Good location and nice room. Service excellent and wine list great.
Food was excellent. All fresh cooked but apart from Pizzas it was a short main menu
The food was incredible. We all enjoyed the meals we ordered. The menu was very creative and food presentation was very appealing. The dessert was also really nice.
The staff are exceptional and very attentive. We will be returning.
We absolutely love Mercato for the warm welcome you receive, the generous hospitality and the incredible choices and quality of food. The atmosphere is always friendly and lively it’s a perfect venue for family and friends. We always leave feeling more than content and look forward to returning again soon!
Never been disappointed. It has amazing Italian food. Best pizza
Value for money and Great service
The food was lovely enjoy it very much, the service was great the staff very friendly but the ambience is not there, like it used to be before the gym took part of the restaurant.
I recommended my friend to go to the restaurant me but we were disappointed, as it has changed! I haven't been to the restaurant 4 four years as I live outside of Sydney now and I remembered it how it was I use to go with my wife every second or third week, Now it doesn't have that same feeling anymore. It not a special place as it was Its just a restaurant
We went for the Giro pizza night. Good value and great pizzas.
Very rude service. Tried to over charge us with 3 extra items!! Also charged us $3.50 pp for bringing our own birthday cake and didn’t even tell us that would be the case. We would’ve taken it home if we knew. Very rude, especially when we spent almost $500 that night. Will definitely not return.
Great Pizza and friendly staff.
A neighbourhood gem.
Such amazing food, my friend and I loved all the dishes. The wait staff was wonderful and friendly. The vibe of the restaurant was excellent, would definitely go back and would definitely tell my friends about it.
We arrived early to our booking with my Mother for her 79th birthday celebration. The staff were warm and very accommodating. They braught my mothers desert first with candle in it and joined us in singing her happy birthday. The food was delicious and the deserts were a decadent finish to a great lunch.
Service with a smile and fantastic food. What more can you ask for?
Food was great. Night ended on a low when staff started to move furniture around us preparing for next day which implied to us to hurry up and leave - very rude.
Would love to go back specially mon-Thursday when there is BYO!😜
Very slow service
People are always great, food is perfect as always,
But the plates are huge and tables a bit small.
As usual, the service was excellent, the food was tasty and the ambience very hospitable
Been here many times with family, work colleagues and friends. Parking is convenient. Food is delicious but you would be happy with just a pizza.
Thua is our local restaurant.
I loved eating here. We had a table of 12. The food was prompt and delicious and service was exceptional.
The only downside was with such a big group it was hard to get around and talk to everyone in our group.
The food was excellent as was the service. I would recommend this restaurant to friends.
just one issue - the lift down to the basement car park - the doors would not open on basement 2 - went back to ground floor and walked down to the basement via the car park entry
Excellent food and setting 10/10! Look forward to my next visit!
Fabulous food, usually great service and a very attractive and comfortable cutout. We’ve been many times. The only negative this time was that the dishes arrived all out of order, entrees came after the mains, and long times between individual (four) main courses.
I have been going to Mercato e Cucina for many years now and am very rarely disappointed with anything about the place.
Food was Fantastic staff friendly and warm table set perfectly plenty of room we will be back
The ambience is good. The children enjoyed their "kids" meals immensely. Our adult meal of beef cheek pappardelle was terrible. Service was good at the start but we waited too long to place our dessert order and then we had an unbearably long wait for our gelato scoops to be served. The pizzas being served to tables looked delicious but, unfortunately, my husband won't go back. He loves food but we found the strong lemon flavour of the pappardelle and the pale beef cheek mush just too disgusting.
Have been here multiple times and usually been very satisfied. The food is still good, but service wasn't as good as it used to be. Restaurant wasn't full, but staff didn't seem as attentive. Took quite a while for someone to clear our plates after main, just didn't feel as attentive as previous visits.
