Surprisingly great food! Wasn’t expecting such high quality dishes in a hotel restaurant but our meals were outstanding! I also appreciated the amount of gluten free options - some of the best selections in State College which was surprising for an Italian restaurant. We will be coming back again!

First time trying Mercato Mio. Our party ordered the lasagna and the mushroom risotto. The lasagna is prepared with a bechamel sauce. It was very good but served lukewarm. We did not send it back for reheating but I’m sure they would have been happy to do it. Just wish it was checked before it was served. Mushroom risotto was tasty with a great presentation. Server was very attentive. Overall a good experience and we will go back.

The menu does not accurately represent the dishes. Two of the four dishes our party had were not accurately described and failed to meet our expectations.

Excellent. Top to bottom. Don't let the fact that it's in a hotel discourage you. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Restaurant was understaffed. After arriving and being completely ignored for over 5 minutes I walked up to the bar and said we had reservations. I was told we still had six minutes until our reservations and we had to wait. The food was excellent and our server was good, it was just how we were treated on arrival. We almost turned around and walked out.

We dropped my son off at school, and wanted to have dinner at a nice restaurant to celebrate, and it could not have been better. I wish that I could remember the waiters name, because he was awesome. Perfect recommendations, including the wine, and made the night. Highly recommend

Fantastic dining experience. Staff had masks, guests were physically distanced and we felt very comfortable. Let's not forget the food for it was delicious. Must try the lasagna and the Nonnas chicken.

Best new restaurant in State College in ages. Everything was fantastic from drinks to dessert. Leave room for the Tiramisu. Hint..located inside the Hilton Garden Inn.
