Mercato makes up for a much-needed Italian trattoria in the Southern suburbs with wholesome Tuscan cuisine on the waterfront. There is something soul-warming about a carb-filled plate of pasta, cheese and cured meats. Chef Luca Piscazzi, who has just moved from London’s celebrated two star Michelin Dame de Pic restaurant, knows exactly how to whisk your senses away with a unique take on comfort food!
Ambitious and supremely talented, we sense a Michelin might be well within his sights in Athens too. A spritzeria for your summer quaffs, a deli counter, an outdoor pizza oven, killer views and a wine list to match – need we say more? At extremely accessible prices too.
