There are so many Italian BYOBs in Philly, and you can go to pretty much any of them and get a solid plate of pasta or chicken parm. And while Mercato is no exception - it’s a classic Italian neighborhood place that serves things like fontina-stuffed meatballs and ricotta gnocchi with short rib ragu - they have much more sidewalk seating than your average BYO. Plus, they also have windows that open all the way up so that the entire 30-seat room becomes an open-air restaurant.
