A few weeks ago, well....maybe months, we dropped in to Il Mercato pre-movie for a quick meal. This was pre-reno, so I'd love to stop in again to check out the new digs!
Since movie-theatre popcorn was in my imminent future, I decided to go for a lighter meal, in the form of a tomato-based herb-y soup filled with mussels, shrimp and scallops. The soup - at a mere $9 - ccombined with a piece of toasted baguette and a glass of white wine, ended up to be the perfect snack and a nice alternative to a heavier pasta/pizza.

My friend had the fettuccine dish below; a rich, cheesy sauce and nice salty prosciutto with a pile of perfectly cooked pasta. Though he really enjoyed the dish, it was a touch too salty for me, what with the Parm and prosciutto being salty already.

I'd love to say that we had a good time here, but we left less than enthused. Though several waitstaff begrudgingly made contact with our table, our server's attitude was less that hospitable. It's unfortunate that we went out for a nice meal, and felt as though our server resented us for sitting in her section, or...god forbid, asking a question about the menu!
