OUR STORY

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.

  • Our goal is to bring customers amazing food, but it’s important we do so in a sustainable way.
Deliveroo has partnered with leading conservation organisation Emirates Wildlife Society-WWF to launch an initiative to help cut down on plastic waste in the UAE.
With them, we are introducing a new feature for customers to be able to request cutlery, only if they need it. This will cut down on wasted plastic in a big way. 
What does this mean for you?
Starting on Friday 11 May, you’ll see a message on your tablet and printed tickets when a customer wants cutlery (and when they don’t). #MercatoAE
