    MercasaLittle Italy Eatery & Catering

    Exceptional cuisine & outstanding service for all of your celebrations

    Brantford's"Fast Casual" restaurant

    Ultimate dining experience like no other
    Mercasa Little Italy Eatery introduces the popular Italian “fast casual” restaurant concept to Brantford. This trend has taken over the Italian market as it meets the needs of our generation’s busy lifestyle.

    At Mercasa, we combine the convenience of “fast food” with homemade, quality Italian cuisine while offering you an elegant dining atmosphere.

    Our chefs prepare everything on our menu from scratch using only the finest ingredients available (local and organic whenever possible).

    From our homemade 72 hour natural fermentation breads and Roman pizzas to our naturally raised meats never containing hormones or antibiotics, we invite you to enjoy the quality side of cuisine.

    At Mercasa you can see all of the menu items in our gorgeous displays before having one of our knowledgable and courteous staff serve you. No need to wait for a server or make a reservation. Simply satisfy your craving for authentic Italian food and relax in our dining room or grab it to go.

    Mercasa founder and executive chef Tom Mercante has an extensive and diverse hospitality portfolio. From a very young age, you could find Tom in the kitchen alongside his mother both at home and in their family restaurant in downtown Brantford.

    Annual family visits to Italy from a young age to current day with his wife and two young boys are what inspire chef Tom’s culinary passion.

    The Mercante family is from Castelli in the Abruzzo region of Italy and his mother Antonia’s family is from Anagni in the Lazio region, just outside of Rome. Fascinated by the culinary world from a young age, Tom has been traveling Italy and the world searching for new culinary inspiration.

    Sharing regional Italian cuisine, including the traditional Roman style pizza with his Brantford community has always been part of his dream.
