Mercurio's is one of our favorite restaurants. We don't get there too often since we live in the west suburbs and Mercurio's is in Shadyside. We try to go in the warmer months because, while pizza is delicious year round, I think gelato is best in warmer months. Or at least my stomach thinks so. We went 2 weekends ago on a warm and muggy Saturday evening. As usual we started off with the Insalata Della Casa, fresh greens with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, parmesan, balsamic, and crostini.
Gelato for dessert? Of course:
We hadn't been to Mercurio's since last September but the pizza and gelato are still delicious and the service is still terrific.
