SquareMeal Review of Osteria del Mercato

Simple white walls and colourful, evocative images of markets and produce create a relaxed and unpretentious setting at this charming Leadenhall Market Italian. To access its sunlit uplands, you have to negotiate what is possibly the steepest staircase in the City, but fans find little else to quibble with. They come for the “excellent” and “authentic” Italian food: starting with delicately sliced veal with red onion, capers and a mixed herb sauce, or classic bruschette, followed by a luxurious crab tortellini with artichoke cream, pork medallions in a tangy mustard sauce, or pan-fried swordfish steak with cherry tomato sauce and savoy cabbage. The all-Italian wine list includes a smattering of options by the glass and is laid out by drinking style; the broad regional spread ranges from a Pugliese Salice Salentino Rivera 2010 to a 2011 Pinot Bianco Alois Lageder from the Alto Adige.

I've been coming here myself and booking it for my boss for years, it's my favourite in the market, he likes it too! I just love the ambience, the food and the service. Makes this restaurant an absolute gem.

They definitely need to add the bruschetta back to the menu – it was a shame to see this missing. Otherwise friendly service and decent food, amongst us we had Burrata and tartar (steak/tuna) to start and mains of seared tuna and paradelle meatballs for mains. The cappuccino to finish was especially good quality.

The restaurant is over two floors. The stairs are very steep so be very careful when coming down, The menu is good. I can recommend the lamb cutlets. I have visited this restaurant on several occasions before and have always been pleased the service, food and wine on offer. Well worth a visit.
