Modern Italian

locally sourced × crafted with love and tomatoes



Café Mercato, located in Denver, is a brand-new modern Italian restaurant, owned and operated by Giancarlo Macchiarella of Locanda del Borgo.

Mercato’s light and airy atmosphere and design permeates throughout the modern space. With a large open kitchen and large wine “library”, you will feel right at home sipping on a glass of select wine while watching the chefs create your meal.

The menu at Café Mercato is based on Southern Italian fare with a lighter approach. All of the pastas and sausages are made in-house, as well as gelato and desserts. Enjoy homemade pizza from our over imported from Italy and other selections from our wood-fire grill. Come visit us with your family and friends for our “family-style” specials, happy hour, or a satisfying Sunday Brunch. Buon appetito!
