I’m currently traveling solo and have been checking out a few places each night here in Hong Kong. This is, by far, the most wonderful place I’ve been to. I’ve hit all the top hotels and these folks at the Mercato are going above and beyond them.

The risotto has a perfect amount of citrus with a subtle longevity of smoothness that keeps your fork on overdrive. The lobster and shrimp raviolis are a touch over citrus’d but that didn’t deter me from eating the whole dish.

Beverage service is on point. The speciality Manhattan was delicious. The wine was presented and poured better than many top-notch operations throughout the world.

Treat yo self. This place is on point!

Being a Friday night in LAN Kwai Fong speaks for itself. The restaurant in the California Tower was busy and buzzing. Not sure what it’s like on weekdays or lunch but I guess it will be more subdued. Service is attentive and efficient,’everything was served in a timely manner and correctly.
The food is good, commensurate with the casual setting. The signature truffle pizza is totally overrated, taste comes primarily from truffle oil (albeit good quality truffle oil) and finely grated black truffle,’probably the frozen Chinese summer truffle variety. The beef rib was solid although would have preferred the onion jam to be on the side rather than having the meat covered with it. Can’t comment on the price value as I didn’t pay on this occasion.
Good place for a night out with friends.

I only frequent a very small number of restaurants in HK of which Mercato is one of them; I visit at least once a week if not more as it possesses the magical properties of consistently delicious food PLUS great service. The lunch set menu is a steal considering the quality of food it offers as well as the portion size which is the same as on the ala carte menu. The team, led by Romain, is second to none in HK and on par with that of fine dining restaurants in Europe. They are personal and attentive. Mercato is a gem in HK.

We went to Mercato a few days ago to celebrate my friend getting promoted at work and we had a amazing evening.
The food was over the top (I recommend their ricotta dish, sweet we had it for sharing as a starter but u can also have it at the of dinner), the GM, Romain I think? Made a great wine recommendation for good value aswell.
The most surprising is that I only informed the hostess that we were coming to celebrate my friend new job, however I didn't request anything special... Without asking anything they made a marzipan congratulation for your promotion on our dessert...This is service!!!
I will definitely go back again, food is great for value per money and one of the best service in hk!

Mercato HK is the best ever real Italian restaurant you want to smell and taste real Italian food. I know the chain since 2003, NYC, Shanghai, and Hong Kong.
