Mercante Family

The Mercante family immigrated from Castelli to Brantford in the 1950’s. Having ourselves visited those mountains on a few trips and having fallen in love with them, we decided on that name for our restaurant.

The passion for great food and the love of family is brought together in our menu where all our dishes have been named after family members and surrounding area towns.


Dan & Patty Mercante

We have enjoyed entertaining and cooking for friends and family for many years, and opening a restaurant has been a longtime dream for us. Together with our children John, Christina and David who work alongside with us, and the support of all our family, we are fulfilling that dream.

We welcome you to join us at Gran Sasso.


Thank You!

To our family, friends and all the hands and hearts that helped create this beautiful restaurant. Thank you for all the love, patience, hardwork and enthusiasm.

Thank you for helping make our dream come true! We are very blessed to have you in our lives. We love you.
