Louisville is no stranger to good cuisine, but no other restaurant does it quite like Mercato Italiano. They bring all the There’s no better place to kick off the weekend.

If the shelved wall of wine doesn’t signal to you that you can indulge here, then maybe the beautiful wood U-shaped bar will. There’s plenty of natural lighting and the red chairs and lamps accent the white walls. The restaurant emits an urban industrial vibe with a warehouse-like ceiling, with soft lights attached to the pipes. Don’t want to sit inside? That’s perfectly fine here. Enjoy the weather in their beautiful outdoor dining area.

Their wide selection of Italian food is prepared fresh and decently priced. There’s something for everyone here, whether you want a snack at the bar or a sit-down dinner.

If you’re aiming for a bigger meal, their pasta dishes and panini sandwiches will satisfy the hungriest of customers. From ravioli to lasagna, you’ll find your favorite traditional Italian dish. Are you a carnivore? Choose from a NY Strip, pork chop, or chicken. The only trouble you’ll have at this restaurant will be picking the dish you want.

But what you must save room for dessert. Nothing beats a homemade treat, and Mercato Italiano has many that will transport you from Louisville to the heart of Italy. You can choose to enjoy cannoli, a large slice of Tiramisu, and many more.
