Mele E Pere
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.
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
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.
Very busy, but still good service, and it wasn't so loud that with noise from the diners which can detract from experience in other restaurants. As a table of 8 orders were delivered together, and we were well looked after.
We had the 3 courses and a glass of fizz for £20. It was excellent value for money and great food and they even gave us a full glass of fizz each! We will definitely return.
Booked for a party of 10. Good food, service and ambiance. Everyone enjoyed & commented on the restaurant being a good choice.
Great food! Really enjoyed the braised venison and the merlot! That being said, service was a bit slow/absentminded and the restaurant gets loud. But the food was great, the neighborhood is my favorite in London, and I would definitely come back to this restaurant!
Cheap menu and the food on the open table menu was mainly good especially the venison. The glass of Prosecco, which came with the set menu, was very disappointing - I’m not sure whether it had been watered down or was just old and flat and, on reflection, we really should have complained. The staff seemed to let the place down. There was no welcoming smile when we arrived and the waiters just appeared very disinterested. Perhaps they were just too busy but to be honest that’s not really an excuse. Having said all this, we had a good evening and will give the restaurant another try at some time to see if we get a better experience.
Loved our evening in this atmospheric basement restaurant. Lovely decor, delightful serving staff and delicious food. Had the best sea bream I've ever tasted. Tad expensive à la carte, but worth it. My friend has the more reasonable set menu.
The food was delicious. The welcome was so hospitable and the service friendly.
Went for lunch with my wife and in-laws. Enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Staff were friendly. Would recommend to friends and family.
Nice good value lunch, prefect for meeting friends.
Excellent value with good food and ambiance.
Excellent find, really great food. Staff were all great and not too interfering. Will definitely be back!
Another excellent pre-theatre meal at Mele e Pere. Lovely food from the set menu (burrata, venison haunch and probably the best tiramisu ever!), friendly, efficient service and the three courses + prosecco menu is an incredible bargain. This is definitely one of our two favourite restaurants at the moment.
We opted for the £20 special (3 courses & glass of fizz) and I have to say, having also eaten here a la carte, that probably its a false economy. The fizz is very gassy prosecco, could live without it. I would say that the only part of the meal of note was the main, which was good, the rest I could easily have done without. Starter of "tartare" of beetroot and goats cheese was underwhelming and involved zero culinary skills and would have cost pennies to make at home. The main of bream was good and showed cooking skills. Pud of apple tart my partner liked, I was again underwhelmed. Cheese plate of a small sliver of taleggio was good, if small. On balance I would say do come to this restaurant, but not for the special.
A friend and I lunched here and had the set menu for £20 including a glass of fizz. The choice of dishes was excellent and the food well cooked and nicely presented. All very good and well worth the money.
Very good quality food at a great price!
Great ambience - friendly staff - happy to oblige and cater for our dietary requirements - a number of tables were groups of women having reunions (as were we) - great place to do this. Not rushed, relaxed atmosphere and good food reasonably priced
I booked for the £20 three course menu and the food was tasty and great value. Portion size was decent too. It’s a pretty cosy feeling place but not small. downstairs is lovely so try and get seated there. Service was friendly but slow, they were busy so it took a while to get their attention. Great value, I definitely recommend
Absolutely sensational value set menu for great food in a brilliant location. How have I only just discovered this place!? Will be back!
we always go twice a year. and always will.its excellent
Outstanding pastas. Really spot on with the pastas. The service was great as the manager made sure I was comfortable and treated us with the utmost care. Excellent.
Great place - very good service, food and atmosphere.
There was no vegetarian on the menu within the set menu. Shame on the restaurant
Went for a birthday meal. Had a 3 course meal and glass of prosecco for £20. Opted for the fried squid, tagliatelle Ragu and tiramisu. Really good food and well worth the money especially with the special offer. Would definitely go back — one of the best Ragus I’ve ever had. Waitresss was attentive and service was good. No complaints!
The 3 course offer with prosecco was worth it. The staff were really welcoming and the atmosphere was fun as well.
Service wasn’t great, the waiter was quite rude, because she “had a bad day”. Also we waited really long for the food, almost 1hr between starters and mains.
The food was ok, my pasta was too undercooked, too much al dente (I am Italian so I am pretty sure about this statement). The tiramisu had a massive l, thick layer of cocoa powder on top, most of the people had to remove it because it was overwhelming.
On the plus side, the wine list was priced fairly, and the wine was good. Some guests ordered steak and they really liked it. The 20 pounds menu is priced fairly, but as soon as you order a la carte, the money you spend - in my opinion- is too much vs the quality of the food and the service.
Very pleasant and attentive service, especially considering I change my mind about three times! Nice atmosphere and very good value if you are getting the £20 for three courses offer.
This is always a favourite for a mid week dinner in town, the set menu offers great food and fantastic value
The £20 for 3 course set menu was excellent value.
