Tourists seeking Old Spaghetti Factory dining at the Eaton Centre will be surprised by Mercatto’s refined Italian food. While the kitchen shows some ambition, the execution needs fine tuning. A block of rosemary-infused pork belly has beautifully crispy skin but dry meat. A pizza scattered with smoked scamorza, spicy sausage and onion delivers excellent chewy texture and good toasted flavour to complement the cheese. Desserts shine, especially a concoction of house-made caramel ice cream, salted peanuts and whipped marshmallow served in a Mason jar.
