Locanda del Melo
Thus, we personally select and import only the finest quality products from small farms and producers throughout Italy. This ensures that our customers taste varied produce that is of the highest possible quality.
Great place! Fabulous service always with a smile. Great pasta with a good varied choice of sauces/ fillings. Goats cheese Bruschetta was a delight and the recommended wines perfect. Super night.
Awesome dining experience with great food and excellent service!
Live round the corner, have done for yeas, but never got around to trying it, probably too much choice on Bermondsey st. Glad we finally made it, good value, good service, and food that surpassed expectations - good, authentic Italian. Will definitely make it back in the very near future.
Booked this after reading the good reviews - we were not disappointed.
Lovely food and wine - very friendly staff.
Will go again when we are next in London.
For years we saw the pretty Italian deli in Long Lane without realising there were dining tables at the back. We are usually too late to try it but on this occasion after a (brilliant) one-act play at the Young Vic we stopped for supper. A real neighbourhood gem like we had round the corner when we lived in Umbria. A very warm welcome. And we loved the falanghina.
Had a nice time at Locabda del Mela. A very small restaurant with only a few tables inside, a very friendly greating made us feel welcome. After a very hot month in the UK they could have done with a fan to help cool their customers.
The food was good although I could have eaten double the amount of pasta, and it was a bit disappointing that there was a lack of bread!
Loved the wine selection and if it wasn’t for the heat inside we probably would have had a second bottle.
One of the most authentic, fresh Italian restaurants I have been to outside of Italy. Completely unpretensious and real.
Delicious fresh homemade pasta and ice-cream. Friendly service.
I hesitate to make it more popular as this is a really small authentic family run Italian at the back of a deli. Very straightforward so not fancy just fabulous Italian with a menu that changes regularly. A good wine list and super friendly service.
Fantastic authentic Italian food. Great hosts, conversational, made to feel welcome, every dish made with fresh ingredients and cooked well... this is not a pizza place, this is proper Italian food
Visited with my family for my uncle’s birthday. I must say that the service and the quality of the food is exquisite. Very friendly staff!
The only slight negative I have is that although this is a small and intimate place, it’s almost too small. I guess that comes down to personal preference though.
Many thanks for the hospitality!
Great food and great service - a bit off the beat and track, but worth it!
Beautifully prepared and cooked food, pleasant and attentive staff, relaxed and casual atmosphere.
One of my favourite restaurants in the area. Excellent Italian food and wine. The restaurant is small and the menu does not have a wide range, but they are all delicious! The staff are very friendly too.
Stunning food, excellent and unpretentious Italian food in cosy setting, amazing service.
Great little restaurant. Really friendly staff and a warm welcome
Lived up to the reviews. Very helpful with adapting the menu to dietary requirement.
Good range and quality of food. Quiet atmosphere even when restaurant was full. Took time to find but was worth it. Friendly, welcoming and authentic.
Fantastic food, wonderful menu and brilliant service. Can't recommend enough.
Such great food and great, knowledgeable service. We will be back!
Went to it because I love Italian food.
It was recommended on Opentable with good reviews.
Not easy to find and is very small + compact.
Had a good deli too.
Wine was good as was the food although the crab linguae had no crab!!! But dish tasted good!
I love this place. Food is absolutely good and authentic, service is great too
Read the excellent reviews and found them to be true. We were a bit late on a
Saturday night. We called and they said our table would be saved. Woderful service
and food. Reasonably priced Italian wine selection. A bit compact so young children
Probably not advisable.
We had the lunch offer. Pasta and wine for £10. The pasta was delicious and the service was very friendly. A lovely hidden gem.
‘‘This was to my wife’s birthday. This restaurant is a little gem. Absolutely outstanding in every way. The food was superb and the staff were wonderful, even putting a candle in the desert and all coming over to the table to sing ‘happy birthday’. What an amazing evening !
This place is absolutely amazing. Once you step in it's like being in Italy. So authentic and the staff is lovely. My favourite place in London.
Tiny Italian restaurant just off Bermondsey Street.
We had dinner there on St. Valentines and got a 4 course meal for 40£ each, the choice of dishes was very and there were tasty vegetarian options available.
The food was great and the service smooth. I would definitely reccomend it if you are looking for a quiet place to have a nice dinner.
Extremely tasty food in a cosy atmosphere. Will definitely be booking again soon
Fantastic service, excellent meal in an intimate setting. Will definitely be back.
Nice enough neighbourhood restaurant, authentic Italian fare in small room with good, friendly service.
Great food and great service. Will definitely be back
A great local find. Amazing Italian food with fresh ingredients with a quiet but authentic feel to it. Perfect for catching up with friends over a long and yummy lunch!
Nice lunch consisting of Mozzarella di Bufala on aubergines and lamb chops for secondi. Reasonable but limited wine list.
Best restaurant in the area. A must.
I had dinner with my parents and all the experience was great. The ambience and the staff very nice and the food really good. Definitely worthy and to repeat soon!!
Lovely food, simple menu but very well done. Wine was also really really nice. Seating area could do with a bit more character (like the deli at the front) and the music was a bit loud/non-atmospheric.
A great place as always. Fantastic meal and lovely time.
Good selection of simple and well prepared Italian dishes.
Fantastic little gem! We made a last minute booking for Saturday dinner. We ordered two pastas and a secondi to share - the pasta was some of the best I've had in London! We went with the day's special of clams with courgette, as well as the beef and ricotta ravioli. I've been dreaming about them ever since! We then shared a pork belly main, which was also delicious. Highly recommended, I can't wait to go back for fantastic good in a casual setting
Fantastic service and delicious food. The Barbera red is silky smooth and worth going to Locanda del Melo just for that!
Sweet, intimate restaurant with no more than 15 capacity made us feel really well looked after. Staff super friendly, funny and attentative. Menu small but packed with a punch. Really delicious, comfy and laid back atmosphere.
