Great food but unfortunately ruined by the fact that your are told to order your food and wait outside, not good when you are waiting in the cold. I suggest you have eat in only. I will not be returning until the Spring!! I fully...understand that in COVID times we need to be cautious, but when you charge $11 for a sandwich and then have to stand outside for 15 minutes, this is unreasonably.More

Dear Loppydo73: We are primarily a takeout business with only 40 seats in the restaurant section (half that during Covid) and I believe at the time of your review we were only allowed 10 customers in our store at any given time. We are sorry...More

I enjoy making Italian food at home, but the food here is something else. The three menu items I have tried so far were delicious! I recommend the Worlds Best Club as it will fill you up but also the chicken salad sandwich grilled. They...have lovely smoked salmon pate from the deli. They have decadent desserts and can even make custom birthday cakes. But, if eating out isn't the move, then they have a great variety of Italian related ingredients, coffee & cooking supplies, and premade meals to use at home (the pizza dough is my favourite). I have seen that they are pushing online services now, such as online grocery ordering, takeout and delivery. Overall excellent atmosphere and fantastic food!More

We came here today to check this market out, we were greeted by a very friendly manager/owner? He was so talkative with us and answered all our questions. We felt welcomed and not like “just another customer.” We loved looking at what they have and...I ordered a sandwich (nice to see gluten free bread available). We also got some pastries which my family really enjoyed. The food was good and I am looking forward to trying more on their menu. I just want to add that yes, you can find some products in other places, but buying local is more important that saving a few cents. I think it’s odd how people push buying local and then complain when local stores try to make a living!More

Hi...we would like to discuss your experience, if you are willing, regarding the Mac & Cheese that was not up to par. The location where you posted the review does not sell Mac & Cheese in-store so we are wondering where you ordered it or...More

The market is located along a strip mall in the middle, besides selling items there is a small restaurant inside. The staff are friendly and helpful. I have been there for lunch many times and it does get crowded, which in itself shows how good...the food is.More

Stopped in for lunch one day and the food was excellent. Home made, fresh pasta, excellent prices, much to choose from. Real Italian food. Lots of delicious desserts. Been there several times. It's my go to whenever I visit Halifax. They alos have a shop...and I stock up on spices, gadgets, and pasta to take back home with me. They also offer take-out, call ahead and cateriing services. Friendly staff. Love this place !More

Amazing spread of deliciousness in every bite. We both really enjoyed. Had the risotto ball, spanikopita, curry and 5 beam salad along with a giant dill pickle. Total bill under $15

It's amazing that after having lived in Halifax for over a decade, my wife and I had not yet visited The Italian Market. A visit from her parents provided an excuse and we were not disappointed in the slightest. The atmosphere is interesting as it's...a combination of a small Italian grocery store along with counter service food. Don't let the menu up on the wall fool you - there is much more behind the counter than they have listed. We all had sandwich/soup combinations that were excellent and well priced but next time I'd like to try some of the other offerings. The staff behind the counter seemed genuinely interested in how we were doing and are extremely friendly. The food is brought to your table quickly and special requests dealt with promptly and in a friendly manner. Overall a great experience.More
