Took some friends visiting from Japan here for dinner. We had the set menu. Lots of words in the menu I didn't understand so had to ask questions - it would help if the menu was easier to decode.
Awful food on the set evening menu.
Service almost non existent.
Ragu dry as a bone.
Great place for a big group. Patient waiters. Great location and value.
Brilliant as always, this place never disappoints!!
Great cost for money. Food wasn’t amazing, however, great value.
Disappointing pre-theatre early dinner. Firstly the positives - appearance wise the restaurant is very cool and makes for a buzzing Saturday evening atmosphere. The Antipasti were also delicious and good value for money
The disappointment was the overall lack of service and quality/value for money of the main course. We both chose the Maltagliati with king prawns, mussels, chilli and garlic for £22.....that would be 2 king prawns, 5 tiny mussels (in fact 2 shells were empty) and a lukewarm, watery tomato based sauce with virtually no flavour or kick with bland pasta. We were also left in the corner of the restaurant with nobody taking a repeat drink order, and when my wife asked for a finger bowl (given we were peeling prawns) we were left with a dry bowl and a single napkin. We also had to appeal for 2 small plates from which to eat the cheese we ordered for afterwards. Overall, we got the impression that we were being rushed through our meal with very little attention given to whether we were content or not. The waiter did ask at the end if we enjoyed our meal and I pointed out the points above regarding the main course which were met with a hapless smile, so not sure whether anyone cared or not!
A lot of potential, but ended up very disappointed
My only real main was that the music was very loud coming through all the speakers - no matter where we tried to sit so very hard to talk and hear
A really lovely and lively place for a weekend evening meal.
Fantastic service, particularly as we had a toddler and a baby with us and they made us feel really welcome and were very accommodating. The food was really delicious, far better than lots of the other Italians in this area.
Went with three friends - ladies of a certain age. We all loved it. Been to lots of more expensive places and been disappointed. This was lovely. Authentic, laid back and lovely
Just gorgeous. We had the pre theatre menu. Bargain!!! The food is authentic. Good quality ingredients. Tasty. Delicious. I was watching other people's food - am going again.
We had the pre theatre menu. Great food, great location and great value.
Excellent for pre theatre
What a lovely pe-theatre lunch we had. It was pretty quiet when we were there, but there was a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. The food was delicious and great value. We had the 3 course meal for £20.
Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here on a busy Saturday night.Rather large portions for our starters but with top quality ingredients. The Taglierini with butter, cheese and truffle was a stand-out dish.
Yet another successful pre-theatre trip to Mele e Pere. The 3 courses + glass of prosecco menu is simply sensational value. This time I went for burrata, beef tagliatelli and fiordilatte affogato - all superb. Service as always was friendly and efficient. Not surprisingly, the restaurant was full by 6pm. So long as they maintain this standard and value, we will return time and time again.
Excellent food at reasonable prices. The set menu is incredible value as the food is cooked imaginatively, there are healthy choices and the ingredients are good quality. Service was good and you even get a free glass of bubbly in the price. Definitely one of my favourite lunchtime restaurants
Liked this place a lot. Food and service were top quality
Very loud, basic food, slow service. I do not recommend.
Appalling service, felt like my server was ordering for me rather than listening to my order. The food was lovely, but I wouldn’t return due to the frustrating service provided.
Nice waitress but lacked choice and atmosphere. Would not visit again.
My third visit here for lunch, with three different friends. The food is very authentically Italian with some surprises for the 'uninitiated'. We have all enjoyed it immensely; the 2 course lunch with a glass of bubbly is excellent value.
A COMPLETE RIP OFF!
The worst food I have ever had! £18 for what looked like someones leftovers! It wasnt though as my companion had exactly the same. Only 2 prawns, 3 empty prawn shells and 3 clams, one of those empty in the pasta dish. No other seafood and only 2 small 2 inch squares of pasta.
I complained and they replaced it with beef ragu which was very smelly and very strong flavoured. It was a stronger flavour than venison. Awful.
One of our favourite places for a few years now. Consistently good food, well served, in a pleasant atmosphere, and completed by an interesting wine list. What's not to like?
I have been to Mele e Pere several times and love it! It's a great atmosphere, with delicious food and excellent service. Brilliant for catching up with friends or for a quick bite before the theatre.
Great food, great service - loved it!
Food is good, not amazing though. A bit expensive for what you get in my view
Great for big groups because it’s rather big and often have space which is great
Ordered the truffle pasta + beef ragu - both were excellent. Also highly recommend the amalfi lemon gelato! Atmosphere was casual.
Staff were pretty inattentive to the point they were ignoring us.
J’avais espéré de trouver un restaurant vraiment italien mais les plats n’ont pas répondu à mes attentes. Ambiente était bien mais personnel peu sympa et finalement j’étais déçu par le prix élevé pour des plats simples et ne pas authentiques.
Decent food but overpriced for what it is
This was a lovely night out however my only quip was that the service was a bit slow - had to ask 2 times for our drinks order but the food was delish and would def go again
Great venue for lunch in central London. We were a group of 9 and the leisurely pace of the meal suited us given our number as we spent a good three hours catching up with each other. The food was excellent and staff were friendly and attentive. Prices were very reasonable for London and would definitely recommend this place.
A further visit to this Soho restaurant. Again not disappointed. Food was very good as always and service as well despite being very busy with Xmas trade. Highly recommended for very good Italian food and wines and the odd vermouth!!
I used to love love love this restaurant but my seafood pasta was completely inedible. It tasted like someone had thrown a jar of olive brine into the sauce. There were 2 varieties of mussels in it too. Raw ones and dead ones. To be fair they took the dish off the bill but everything was well below average. Such a shame I hope they get back on track
This restaurant was ok, but nothing extraordinary. Not sure I would go again.
We had a lovely lunch, the service was great and the £20 lunch special is a bargain in Soho.
I’ll ne going again soon
This was my second visit to Mele E Pere for lunch with two different friends. On both occasions we have been delighted with the food. This time I asked that we could be seated downstairs and we certainly enjoyed the atmosphere there. Our Spanish waitress was 'a delight' and cheerfully explained what some of the dishes were and was very attentive. I will definitely return, perhaps with yet another friend!
I went with friends I had not seen for many months and we had a good time. We stayed for very long. Ok place and food is ok too.
Delicious food. Great ambiance. Authentic modern Italian food. A tad on the expensive side but its not an everyday occasion.
