Il Mercato-Halifax Eatery

LJSimpson | Jun 6, 2004 02:54 AM

That's Il Mercato on Spring Garden Road for the best casual Italian food and a great atmosphere. Do make reservations if you don't like to wait though that can be fun, too, in the ambiance of this pretty and lively place. Fresh pasta, interesting little meat dishes and good desserts made on the premises. (Now in the correct disclosure spirit of this board, I will confess that my student daughter works there part-time as counter help and bus girl, but she is a do-it-from-scratch-cook and chose Il Mercato because after, two years of living in Italy while at school, THIS was the place in her university community that she felt most resembled a real Italian cucina.)
