    We had a wonderful evening at Al Mercante. We shared 4 dishes, which all had great taste and a nice presentation. We especially loved the local, Italian feeling; most of the guests were locals and the menu only in Italian with many special daily dishes. The waiter translated everything and quickly understood our taste. Overall excellent service, great attention and a wonderful experience.

    We found our experience at this restaurant to be very enjoyable. The staff were friendly and efficient. The food was absolutely outstanding. The 60 days matured steak was the best steak I have ever eaten. Other dishes were of an equally high standard. The wine list was extensive and the wine we eventually chose was a delight. On our next trip to Milan we will not fail to book here.

    Food good but my veal Milanese was a little dry. Server was rushed and wasn’t really helpful. Good setting and would try again. It was a Sunday night and we ate early.

    I arrived at Al Mercante and was told they did not have my reservation. I showed them the 2 confirmation emails and all they did was shrug. They ended up accommodating me outside in the cold. Food was decent, customer service was in the gutter. Could not get in touch with The Fork either. Submitted an issue via email and yet no response.

    Great location, nice atmosphere, but I’ve had better Italian food in other parts of Milan for less money. It feels like you are paying for location over quality. Regardless, still a good option if you’re in the area and looking for a good dinner option that is easily accessible.

    Good food, a bit overpriced but thats probably because it is in a very touristic area. Nice atmosphere and good service.

    I hv been eating in this restaurant for over 8 years. I rated it 5 ⭐️ in google in the past. It was my favourite restaurant in Milan, but it changed after moving in this new location in 2018, food portion became smaller, taste became more salty, and staff became not as friendly as before.
