The origin of Mercato West began in 1974, with the Italian Centre & Meat Market and in 1983, Italian Gourmet Foods which foreshadowed the evolution to Mercato Mission in 2005.
The Mercato West concept in 2012 furthered the celebration of the Italian table and culture simultaneously. The memorable experiences of the Ristorante, Pizzevino, Market, “Porte Via” (take away) and catering are inspired by the “Italian table” continues to be the driving philosophy of Mercato.
Welcome to our table. Buon Appetito!
The unique theatre kitchen concept is committed to creating an enjoyable Italian table experience and showcasing Italian food. The menu with carefully selected ingredients will be a modern approach to classic Italian dishes while being respectful of Italian tradition.
The menu features Mercato favourites. Our famous Bistecca - Fiorentina style steak , Tagliatelle pasta, or Caprese salad with Bufala Mozzarella and a variety of contorni (sides) which utilize fresh ingredients.
