This was the second time we had Diner at this restaurant and can only recommend it Good food, friendly staff. As this restaurant is very busy I would advise reserving a table at least one day in advance or be prepared to wait.

Every time I am in Papendrecht I visit Il Mercato. It's a nice Italian restaurant, pleasant and warm, with good food prepared the way Italians like. My favorite is without any doubt the pizzas. The pizza menu is quite long and you can chose from a variety of tomato and white pizzas. Pizza crust is thin but not crunchy, the... More

Near Rotterdam there is a world famous spot called Kinderdijk. Being one of the main tourist attractions of Holland it is indeed worth a visit: a classic polder which is kept dry by a range of windmills. When visiting Kinderdijk or staying in the region don't forget to visit restaurant Il Mercato in Papendrecht. It takes about 15 min. by... More

Absolutely loved this place, cool and trendy and that was just the staff! Food was also top notch and the menu varied but purely Italian. I loved my Rustico starter and the Calzone pizza was to die for! Palm beer is the future also :-)

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner of spaghetti with chicken. Really enjoyed dining outdoors on the town square. Had a bowl of olives for the starter and couldn't have been happier with the selections.

We drove to Papendrecht for some reason that I don't remember and while there we came upon Il Mercato. It is advisable to make reservations but we were able to get seating near the bar. The place was packed and very busy. We both had a pizza which was pretty good and drinks. We had planned on going back for... More

Italian means imagination and passion, Italians cook only with fresh products. Italian cuisine is known for leaving out, by simplicity in dishes and yet surprise people with unique tastes. The art with Italian food is putting the honesty and purity of products back in dishes. The focus on flavors and to refine dishes by the use of spices and herbs.

That is the essence of Italian cuisine, using fresh ingredients, that lets you create a dish prepared just right by the perfect combination of flavors.
