One of My Favourite Restaurants in Halifax: I have never had a bad experience at Il Mercato. The staff is attentive and friendly, and the food is consistently delicious.<br/><br/>The prices are decent, especially for the quality of the food. It's not a place I can visit all the time, but it's nice to semi-splurge from time to time.<br/><br/>Their wine list is great, and their desserts are scrumptious, especially the gelato.<br/><br/>I do wish they had a lunch menu. They could really make a killing with their location if they had more affordable options during lunch.

Il Mercato:Spring Garden Road: Friendly service. <br/> Food quality very good. I enjoyed a grilled vegetable salad which was very tasty and reasonably priced. <br/><br/>Only "cons" our dining party noticed was: the tables are very small and closely placed together. The overall sound barrier created almost an audible hum of voices..making it hard to hear or enjoy conversation in a packed resturant. <br/><br/>Pehaps, not as noticable had we gone at a less busy time- but, worth taking into consideration if going at peak hours.

In the heart of the downtown shopping district, this is an ideal lunch stop. If...

Another leg in the daMaurizio Bish empire, this fun bistro features light-colored Tuscan sponged walls and big rustic terra-cotta tiles on the floor, which set an appropriate mood amid the clamor of Spring Garden. I like this place a lot. Come early or else expect to wait (no reservations are accepted). You'll find a great selection of meals at prices that approach bargain level. Start by...
