Il Mercato has a menu that changes based on season, chef Emily prepares delicious food with local fresh ingredients. The wine list is very reasonable and good, the atmosphere is cozy and family friendly. For years this place has been one of my favorite, local, great value, easy parking and good service.

The food and service is excellent although it is a little pricey. You can bring your own wine (they do have wine though) and they do charge a corking fee.

Il Mercato is truly a hidden gem of a restaurant. ... literally and figuratively :) The actual restaurant is hidden in a strip mall but don't give up, it is truly worth it. Don't forget to call and make reservations in advance, the locals know a good place and Il Mercato is definitely up there. Fresh pastas, vegetables, fish, meat... More

Now that all the noise is over from the construction of Tojays. It is time to enjoy this spot again. It is a nice somewhat hidden away restaurant. It is somewhat romantic. Good for an evening experience.
