Mercato Calgary - Anyone else find too salty?

Is it just me or are some of the dishes at Mercato way too salty?

The insalata was too salty. The risotto was salty to begin with then shaved hard cheese and prosciutto on top was way too much salt.

I felt nauseated by the amount of salt in the food. Some of the other dishes were fine but the some were ridiculously salty.

Anyone else have this experience there? Is it just one cook that smokes too much and has no sense of taste?

If I'm going to plunk down good money on a meal, I want something I can enjoy, not something to be endured.

    1. Hey, I am not trying to bash it out of spite, I am just curious if others find it too salty or is it just my own preferences.

      1. I personally love Mercato, but some people can be sensitive to salt, maybe try something else next time, or ask the server what they would recommend that is not too salty.

          1. I eat at Mercato all the time and do take-out about once a week...I don't find their food too salty.
