Mercadante Woodfired Pizzeria

Considering I've been in Melbourne for 3 years plus already, and have been living not that far off from Lygon Street, and now living much much more closer to Lygon (only one street away), its a shame that I've only been to 2 of multitude of Italian restaurants there (Corretto's and Villa Romana), Vina Bar and Lambs notwithstanding. So, I've decided to embark on The Quest to Sample More Italian (or Non-Asian) Restaurants on Lygon Street.

And the first one on my hit list is Mercadante Woodfired Pizzeria.

And how was the food, you might ask? Well, nothing was really spectacular. What you see here is what I got then. Perhaps I ordered the wrong things. Reviews on the net seem to be very highly in favour of this restaurant.

Oh wells, I'll have to try it again some other day.

Indeed. I have been there once, and we ordered a steak, a pizza (can't remember what it was) and a lasagna to share between 3. and the steak was GLORIOUSLY SUCCULENT. (hmmm, what a nice little description!) Maybe it was the fact that i was starving. But nonetheless, my sister and friends think highly of Mercadante too.
