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.
Delicious food and excellent value. It can be very noisy though in the small space. Speedy service included removing the plates before the course was finishes. Still a favourite.
Always a delight in taste and Italian service
This is a little gem - a tiny restaurant with great food and wine and very friendly service at a sensible price.
If I lived in London I would go often, as it is I will plan future trips so that I can go when possible.
We enjoyed a delightful Sunday afternoon meal. Everything was perfect.
This is a wonderful, authentic Italian restaurant. Staff were warm and friendly and made us feel very comfortable. We both had pasta and both dishes were delicious and cooked to perfection. We also had a carafe of quality Montepulciano at a very reasonable price. Will recommend to friends and family. Can't wait to return.
Love this restaurant In all ways. Lovely warm staff as well.
Ristorante bellissimo, cibo molto molto buono, primi da ristorante stellato!
My Husband and I went here for our first anniversary and it was lovely, small and intimate. having grown up in Italy I am quite picky about my italian food, but this place knocked it out of the park. Best dinner we have had in a long time. The owner/manager was delightful, explained how the dishes were made, and quite clearly took pride in everything. Can't recommend highly enough
Lovely little find in London. Small and intimate restaurant. Great food
Very god food, friendly staff, and very good service❤️
A limited menu serving excellent Italian food. Emphasis on fresh ingredients and great prepratiion leads to delicious dishes.
Overall a fantastic evening. Small and intimate space. Service with a passion. Can't wait to try out the breakfast.
Wonderfully welcomed and food as good as usual - small but packs a big punch
Amazing pasta 👌🏽
Incredible food as last time, we will come back again
This is my favourite Italian in London
Food and service was excellent would highly recommended and would definitely return
The seafood starter and chocolate pudding were both amazing. Can’t fault these dishes at all. The seafood tagliatelle main course was good but way too salty. The service was attentive and the atmosphere enjoyable. Will definitely be making a return visit soon.
Absolutely lovely restaurant- exceeded expectations and will definitely be returning!!
Our second visit, and just as much fun as last time. Great food, very personable service and overall pretty good value. Wine was good too, although not the cheapest. Will definitely be back!
Small and very friendly restaurant with good food and very good service. A little gem, I thought.
The whole experience was utterly delightful. The food, wine, ambiance and service were out of this world, couldn’t fault it. The evening was a birthday celebration but we certainly will not be waiting for the next one before going again. Thank you Locanda del Melo.
Second time there and its as good as ever even though the menu has changed a bit. The service is truly friendly, the food is delicious, the setting is simple, the prices are, in my view, a little high for the area but beyond that one can hove nothing but praise for everything: food, service, wine, ambience. It is a refreshing change from those over ambitious places that care more about themselves, their trendiness and presentation than they really do about the quality of the food. Really worth a visit.
Lovely, friendly place with a great welcome and excellent food! I would have given it 5 stars for food if there had been slightly more choice for those who don't eat meat or shell-fish.
A real treat!
The service is always faultless and enthusiastic. The waiter is knowledgeable and entertaining. We felt like we were in Florence for the night! We’ll be back!
We loved our experience at Locanda del Melo! The food was absolutely amazing and the staff was welcoming and engaging. We celebrated out daughter's birthday with amazing tiramisu topped with a candle and rousing "Happy Birthday" sung by all, led by the staff!
Locanda del Melo is an Italian restaurant about 12 mins walk from London Bridge tube station. I visited with my wife and two other adults on a Friday evening prior to attending a concert. The service is friendly and quick. The pasta dishes we ordered were all delicious. My wife and I also had a dessert each which were also delicious. The bill was reasonable for London. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.
A lovely hidden gem serving great real Italian food, with super nice helpful staff.
Great little restaurant with really friendly service and excellent Italian food at reasonable prices. Would love to go again, but sadly don't live locally!
my main dish with crab was very nice
the two ravioli disches were moderate in taste
wine was good
The food was amazing and the service was warm and friendly. Will definitely be having dinner there again.
We were staying at the hotel across the street so this was very convenient for us. Very small, crowded restaurant--I think it is only 7 tables and 2 are essentially in a hallway. Be sure to get a table in the back room. Mushroom Pasta dish which we shared as an appetizer was excellent. We liked, but did not love our eggplant parmesean. It comes with nothing else and we found the flavours strong. With nothing else on the plate, you cannot switch food bites to soften the taste. We ended up asking for bread. I would recommend this place especially if you are a bit more adventuresome (which we are only a bit)
Fabulous food - but very, very expensive wine. In fact, the price of the wine ruined a lovely evening as this is a superb place to eat and the service is very genuine and very warm.
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.
