Not bad food, but so crowded and loud. There's so little space that the waiters have difficulty bringing out the orders. you will be sitting with strangers on the same table. Never going there again.

Short rib is to die for, sidewalk dining has heaters :). Great staff, amazing food. BYOB only

Delicious food, nice service, and with BYO, it's a bargain. I wish they'd change up the menu more frequently, but I've had many great meals here.

as close to perfect as you can come with a byo in center city. the food is delicious, the service is comfortable and polite without being overbearing and the ambience is relaxed and romantic, especially on a summer night.

Packed on a Tuesday night! Had dinner here for the first time for our date night and it was a cozy, intimate place. We started with their olive oil and vinegar tasting and my boyfriend had the spare rib pasta and I had the crab ragu pasta. We were blown away by the flavors of the entrees. Our server kept our water glasses full (BYOB) and was knowledgeable and attentive. We had a great bottle of red to pair with the food. I'll be back to try everything else on the menu! Do yourself a favor and try mercato!

I love the fresh pasta and desserts are pretty damn good too. love the outdoor seating in the summertime, and the food is amazing. scallops with mushroom pea risotto is a must try along with the striped bass.
