Food isn’t just for eating

At Mercato, we don’t just like food...we love it. And we believe that anything worth loving is worth sharing. That means we don’t just share the food on our menu - we share the very ingredients and recipes that went into making them. There’s no secret to what we do. All we do is use the best practices, the freshest ingredients and simple recipes mixed together with passion, dedication and love.

So drop by our cosy restaurant in the heart of DIFC to experience the best of Italian cuisine, made using classic recipes passed down through generations, without ever having to leave Dubai.
