Start with a selection of small plates such as Arancini Amatriciana or creamy burrata with heirloom tomatoes. Mains include hearty meat dishes and flavoursome pastas. Slow cooked fettuccine bolognese is a must!

Feeling thirsty? Start with a small but beautifully-formed selection of classic cocktails, before discovering your new favourite Italian wine. The terrace faces south and is lovely for lunch.

The staff were super friendly and accommodating, they genuinely seemed to care about how were feeling and whether we enjoyed the meal.

The food was outstanding. I ordered the cabbage steak which was divine and my companion went for the Lamb which was cooked to perfection! We also had the Parmasan and Honey, Roast Octopus, and Burrata, Puntarelle, Anchovies, all so delicious it felt like we were in Italy.

We weren't rushed out of the restaurant when our meal finished in fact the host a native of Italy herself engaged in conversation with us about the food. We will definitely be back to try the pasta - may have to book into the Sheraton afterwards to recover from my carbohydrate coma!! Ha ha, any excuse!

We had a lovely dinner at Mercante. The wine list was extensive, we had a fruity red wine which complimented our meal well. The starter was roasted octopus, it was tender and flavorsome. Our mains were beef fillet with duck liver, lobster gnocchi and clams linguine. They were all delicious! Last came our desserts of chocolate torte, limoncello baba which finished our meal nicely.

This was the first time we dined at the restaurant, and I must say it was a fantastic experience! The staff were very welcoming and professional, helped with the menu and suggestions which worked very well. The food was simply amazing, quite tasty! The wine list is fairly good, we chose a great wine. Defenitly coming back!

Our Friday evening dinner at Mercante was top notch on all counts. We were greeted by the friendliest and most professional of staff, who were incredibly attentive but not overbearing throughout. The food stands on its own, the pasta is some of the best we've had, and the tiramisu was light as air - but the real star of the night was the starter plate of scallops that were cooked to perfection.
I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to anyone who is a fan of Italian food because Mercante is a winner.

The food and staff made the evening exceptional. All staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. I had one of the best simple yet delicious pasta dishes I've had in a while and to top it off the tiramisu was decadent yet light and fluffy and everything came in perfect portions. My boyfriend and I had a lovely evening and will be returning soon.

Great food, great service, great venue! My favorite Italian restaurant in London! I had the Arancini and Spaghetti and it was very delicious. My friend has a gluten allergy and they had loads of options for here, even the bread before was gluten free! Absolutely recommendable!

Really enjoyed my experience at Mercante yesterday evening. The service was top class, with friendly and accommodating staff. The complimentary focaccia and olive oil whilst ordering was a lovely touch! Great variety of Italian and Sardinian dishes on the menu. All of our courses were tasty and well timed. I will definitely be back :)

Some of the tastiest food I’ve had in a while! Had the bolognese with broccoli and chips on the side - a lot of food and it was all amazing!! Would definitely go here again.

Everything we tried was delicious apart from burrata that was too hard for Italian burrata (our favourites were the octopus, Caciucco and Gianduja chocolate torte). The service was good, as expected for this type of restaurant, and the place was empty.

Thanks to the Mercante team for an amazing evening at this beautiful Restaurant! The food and drinks were perfect, especially the Lemon Risotto with Asparagus and the fitting Limoncello Cocktails! The service very friendly and attentive.

It's quite quiet in the restaurant, on a Thurs night that's a bit odd but we had good experience there. Waiters were very welcoming, the speed of serving food was a bit slow but was ok. Food itself was good but it seems they like overcooking seafood a little bit lol. But in general it was great.

Really excellent menu, beautifully cooked and presented. Service was spot on, always there when needed (but never obtrusive), warm and friendly. Would go back in a heartbeat.

The risotto was excellent, starters were fresh and octopus very soft and tasty. The waiter was really nice and helpful and made us feel like at home in Italy. Highly recommended!

- dined at Mercante on

Ambience was nice.

Service was good though initially it was very slow. The wine list is not vast and we ended up spending a lot on wine (£90 on amorino) because even the montepulciano at £35 was mediocre.

Mixed bag with the food.

Carpaccio and Turbot were okay. Gnocchi, scallops and Burrata were satisfyingly good. The small pasta plates were generously sized. The fettuccine Bolognese was bland. The Bonne was unremarkable whereas the gelato was good.

The bottomless brunch looked like a good option. Would not return for A La Carte as overall quite pricey and the service charge was added before discount for food was applied.

Already put a great review on my Facebook and on Google.

Wonderful experience! There were two of us but even so, the waitress let us sit in a booth for four.
The wine and starters came almost at the same time which was great and the mains after a suitable amount of time had passed. I had the spaghetti in a tomato, chilli and garlic sauce which is my favourite ever and it did not disappoint! I will certainly be visiting again.

Such a well designed and aesthetically pleasing dining room. We had a table nearest the window and enjoyed the scallops and octopus respectively, followed by the turbot and chicken Milanese. The food was good, but some of the spices were out of kilter. Would return for round two, however.

Excellent and attentive service. Food was great as well - had scallops to start which were tender and flavoursome. The ribeye and bolognese fettuccine for mains were also very good. Finished off with a good portion of tiramisu.

Would recommend all to try this relatively new place on First Table!
