• WINE

We believe in a sustainable culinary world. This summer we will be changing our menu every week to be able to take full advantage of our local seasonal bounty.

Since opening in 2002, Mercato Ristorante has been a favorite of locals and visitors to Olympia. Both urban and comfortable, Mercato is an upscale casual restaurant whose focus is simple, fresh Italian fare.

Every menu item is prepared fresh and from-scratch, and it shows. Mercato also features a beautifully crafted bar, where delightful cocktails are mixed, local beers are poured, and both

Northwest and Italian wines are featured.









These menus reflect our overall approach and vision to the food we serve. Dishes, ingredients and prices are subject to change based on seasonal availability - thank you for your understanding!
