I have to be very repetitive here, but that's because Merchant are incredibly consistent.

Very good location.
Very good food.
Very good decor.
Very good service.

4 / 5 is very good.

You'd love a couple of killer things, and to not be asked if I wanted beer/wine every 10 minutes, but hey, it's very good and I'll be back.

If you are looking for Italian food that is authentic, fresh and uncomplicated this is the place to go. It has all the usual favourites such as pasta, risotto,seafood etc and a few not so common items but you can't go wrong with anything on the extensive menu. The whole fish I had was one of the best I have had yet it was simply grilled and seasoned with herbs. Everyone else had various pasta dishes which they all praised highly. We shared entrees such as carpaccio, baccala and cuttlefish all of which were delicious. Serves are not huge but don't need to be. The wine list is mostly Italian and the waiting staff can help you choose a wine to suit your taste. The waiting staff are outstanding in every respect, attentive friendly and very helpful, they really know how to look after people.

These restaurants are well used because their many staff do a fantastic service job. The cooks are mainly Asian people and know the best ways to prepare meals.

Have been here quite a few times for lunch. It is always very busy which is a good sign! Food has always been very good, the prawn risotto is amazing. Everybody agreed that all of the food was delicious and I would highly recommend to anyone visiting the Melbourne CBD, you will not be disappointed!
