"My wife and I have been going to Mercato for a number of year for lunch and other times for dinner. The wine list was the quite disappointing. We could not believe there was not one bottle of wine under $135. It's a $45 dollar bottle of wine marked up 3x. We know enough about wine to know. I like a moderate priced wine for around $60-70. 90% of customers cannot tell a $60 bottle of wine from a $135 bottle of wine. The other disappointment was the Risotto. The risotto was nice but a touch over done, it should have had a slight crunch type of texture. The scallops that came with it were perfect but the purple cabbage or rutabaga was overpowering. We ordered Risotto. It should have been the star of the dish. Not the vegetable."
