Mercatto is a charming, accessible environment with authentic Italian food in the heart of downtown Toronto.

You can enter Mercatto off Bay Street by the 36”wide door to the right of the revolving doors. There is a small ½” lip to transition from the stone walkway and sidewalk onto the smooth floor of the restaurant. In the summer, there is also an accessible entrance to the patio which is just north of the entrance on Bay street. Please note that this is the only accessible entrance to the patio as there are a couple steps to enter from inside the restaurant.  Throughout the restaurant, the tables are 29” high with removable chairs. The restaurant is warm and inviting with floor to ceiling windows that face Bay Street.  Please note that there is limited clearance between tables, however, some aisles are wider than others.

At the back of the restaurant, you will find the hallway to the washrooms which is 40”wide. There are accessible stalls in the male and female bathrooms, with the doors to enter being 32” wide. Note that at the time of the visit, the hallway was dimly lit.  The bathroom was equipped with an 18” high toilet surrounded by 2 grab bars, one behind and one beside the toilet. The door to enter the stall was 33.5” wide. The sink is outside of the stall at a height of 33” and 16” deep, with clearance of 29” below. The sink has a single lever to turn on/off, and the soap dispenser is a pump action. The bathroom is also equipped with a baby change table.  Part of the bathroom was well lit while the other half near the sinks was not as well lit.  As well, the mirrors above the sink did not tilt.

We love the authentic Italian food here at Mercatto for lunch or dinner. The staff are friendly and accommodating. Mercatto’s is also open for breakfasts and have a lovely coffee bar you should definitely check out if you are passing by!

The closest accessible subway station is Queen, and the restaurant can also be accessed by the accessible bay #6 bus that stops right outside. There is a green P parking garage at Nathan Phillips Square at 110 Queen Street West or private parking at the Bay-Adelaide Centre across the street.
