Mercato e Cucina, on the notoriously busy Victoria Road, is a well-conceived oasis of Italian goodness. Walking in off Victoria Road is like stepping into a better, more Italian, world with friendly service, good quality food and an attractive fit out.
Mercato e Cucina offers coffee, pastries, fruit and vegetables, canned goods, a butcher, a well-stocked deli and pizza. Solid wooden tables are available to enjoy a coffee and pastry before doing the weeks shopping. For a person who spends most of their time in Sydney’s inner city, Mercato e Cucina is a throughly charming place to shop and one I wish was located a little closer to home.
