il Mercato
- Good food is one of life’s simple pleasures. A cliché but true all the same. Our restaurant il Mercato is all about simplicity using the freshest and finest quality ingredients to create unique dishes distinctive from the regular Italian cuisine. Our Chef works wonders with these ingredients in simple, flavorful combinations, specialising in the obscure and the delicious highlights of food and wine from all across Italy's twenty regions. Our menu is made up of the same simple rustic dishes we really enjoy when going to Italy.

A selection of Italian wines and home-made and imported foods is available at our Gourmet shop inside the restaurants.
