    Pasta and seafood reign supreme at Mercato. Get the heaping plate of seafood linguine, coated in fiery fra diavolo, which practically bursts with mussels, squid, shrimp and clams.

    Great ambiance. Authentic and unique dishes that are all delicious. I can't resist the lasagne. And, the ricotta cheesecake is a fave of mine. Not too sweet so don't expect "cheesecake factory". Read more

    The rigatoni with eggplant and salted ricotta was PHENOM. Others in my group loved their meals as well. Fried artichoke was small but really tasty. I want to try everything on the menu!

    Open super late and amazing Italian food. Possibly, some of the best pasta in the city! Great for a post broadway meal or night cap, only a 10 minute walk.

    Just a few blocks from Port Authority, you’ll find this mood-lit trattatoria, it’s well-stocked wine vault, and a cozy atmosphere that feels anything but “bridge and tunnel.”

    Though the portions are medium-small, the spaghetti is among the best spaghetti I've ever had. Rich garlic flavor with ample (truly) fresh tomato sauce.

    I'm a regular here, Owner Fabio specialty is classic cocktails of old which is fun. Of note: the Burratina, Stracciatella, Orecchiette, and the Orata. Warm and authentic.

    Fresh and delicious Southern Italian fare that is a must-have for any Hell's Kitchen resident. The friendly staff and delightful libations only make this place even greater!

    ask for which pasta is actually homemade. then get drunk on a bottle of wine, enjoy the bufala mozzarella and eat frutti di mari

    Great neighbourhood Italian - food / service / atmosphere all way above average, an impromptu business lunch thoroughly enjoyed by four jaded Europeans.

    In a tourist-frenzied area w/ little to eat other than $1 pizza slices, Mercato stands out! Pasta is fresh and above average. It's one of the few good options in a 2 block radius.

    Amazing place. Tagliata di manzo and filetto di orata are perfect! Super sweet tomatoes in caprese salad (was made in few minutes actually)!

    Hole-in-the-wall restaurant serving fresh, perfectly cooked pasta. Of the three dishes I got to taste, my favorite was the trenette.

    The gnocchi was BOMB! Great balance of sauce and meat with the plate; however, the portion size was smaller than anticipated.

    This is the best Italian in the city. It's all good, have a glass of Prosecco and raise it in the air: Jade and I had our wedding here on the 8th of September 2010!

    Truly authentic Puglia region cuisine - the "polpette y crostini" and "taglierre puglia" are my favorites.

    I ordered veggie lasagna. They gave me beef lasagna. I send it back for the veggie lasagna. They gave me veggie mush. Kraft is better than this

    You can definitely find better Italian in the city. Came for a birthday, and was charged a ridiculous cake cutting fee that was not communicated at the start. Group of 5 and 20% tip was already added.
