Four of us had dinner at Mercato last Saturday. I was pleasantly surprised to get a table right away (around 7:00pm). Didn't expect this on a Saturday night but perhaps it's because it's summer and people are away. The restaurant wasn't empty by any means but people weren't waiting long for tables. We had a wonderful meal with very nice service. We shared a roasted artichoke special and a good antipasto. I had a summer vegtable risotto. Others had chicken, veal and diver scallops. All were terrific. For dessert, we all had the wonderful mascarpone cheesecake. Can't wait to go back. They will take your cell number and call you when your table is ready, if necessary.
