Un-pretentious fine dining. Our experience was memorable; Entrees are un-complicated and delicious. Pasta dishes are traditionally Italian, with other offerings exceptional. Giuseppe and his staff are welcoming and efficient. Recommend the Icelandic Cod - simply amazing.

Food could be a lot better if it wasn't for the type of floor they use. Service is too bad though; the waitress is confused and doesn't understand what customers need.

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its
most stylish high-rise residences and heritage
buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden
arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel
from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of
the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools,
jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill
Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and

Bar Mercurio is a small family run restaurant downtown Toronto, with a strong focus on quality and freshness. We hand make our pasta and agnolotti, our pizza dough comes from a long tradition going back to the family in Italy, our burrata in hand stretched in house. Our wines are carefully selected to compliment a simple and elegant pizza margarita to a bison strip-loin with fresh truffles. Our care and commitment comes to the table - we make the culinary dream happen. Buon Appetito!
