Tried Mercadante recently and was left with a very mixed outcome. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. We tried the garlic bread, a pesto gnocchi, the primavera pappardelle and the "famous" chocolate pizza and they were all quite good. Unfortunately, the experience was let...More

Service was fun and fast. Wine was well priced and good . Pizzas arrived quickly, but we've had better for the price in Lygon st. Not much topping (I quite like minimalist on a wood fired pizza, but this was bordering on "may contain traces...More

One of our group members is allergic to garlic, onion and gluten and pretty much every thing Italian has that in it. Fortunately the staff here offered to make a pasta from scratch to cater to her needs. To our delight, our meals were served...More

If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way
