Italian
Independent and family-run, we opened Mele e Pere in the heart of Soho in February 2012.

We are three brothers and a friend who set out on a journey to create a genuine neighbourhood Trattoria reminiscent of the fabulous family-run places of northern Italy, where we all grew up.

You should feel just as comfortable popping in for a glass of home-made vermouth and some sharing plates at the bar as you should taking your time to work through the menu in the dining room.

We cook our seasonal and daily-changing menu with British produce and exceptional Italian ingredients. All of our pasta, desserts and ice-creams are made in our kitchen fresh every day. We have London’s largest selection of Vermouths behind our bar and our exclusively Italian wine list has loads of options for you available by the glass and carafe.

Short menu not a great deal of choice but some excellent pasta and a very nice salad. They were also helpful in cobbling together some cheese from the kitchen. We ate upstairs at tiny table to avoid noise downstairs. Wine was good, but it was an alternative bottle and a bit more expensive than the one we'd chosen.. Should have been told the price difference or not charged the extra.

Visited after theatre show. Welcomed by friendly staff. Our waitress was knowledgeable about the menu and left us to decide. The venue has a wonderful bar area and live music playing around 9pm. Three courses and wine at £50 per head. Food delicious -only note is that the menu is not that extensive.

Had to ask for water x3 times, napkins x2 times, foccaccia x1 time but never arrived but still appeared on bill. Heard neighbouring table ask for items several times too. Pizza was also a pretty sad and limp affair. Service with a smile, but obvious problems.

Food was amazing. We had the burrata with figs and a walnut pesto - gooey and delicious. And then the special, Lamb with carrot + artichokes and a minted potato mash. So, so good. We’ll definitely go again

Used the OpenTable fixed price menu. The price wasn't shown on the menu card so I had to check. The food was tasty but the portion sizes were variable; especially gnocchi was a small portion. Good value, service & ambience for pre-theatre.

Excellent but modestly sized menu which means what food they make, is very well done. Great starters and the pasta dishes are all great. Their Vermouth drinks are well worth going for too.

To start with I cannot fault the service. The waiter was really friendly, efficient and helpful - it’s the food that really let things down. Starters were fine. They were tasty and did what they said on the tin. The main courses were the real disappointment. The pasta dishes were incredibly bland and very very watery and the pizzas were bland and very doughy. Steak looked like it had been cooked in a fry pan. Overall, 7 fairly unfussy eaters left full but no one said their meal was good. The wines and the cocktails were very nice but £17 for a glass of chianti classico is also a bit on the steep side.

Overall, I would say it’s a good place to go for a drink and some nibbles but don’t go for dinner. Italian is supposed to be simple food done really well. This was simple but not great.

An amazing experience! I recently took my girlfriend here for a date night and it ticked all the boxes. The downstairs has a great ambience and Ilenia was an incredible server who chose the best vermouths for our tastings. I'll be bringing clients and partners here in the future.
