The team invites diners to relax in rustic, warm surrounds and celebrate all things Italian. With its pared back interior and casual atmosphere, customers are drawn back to Meridionale time again. Covering much of southern Italy’s culinary culture, what you see here is the real deal.
Fresh, top quality ingredients are blended to create genuine Italian fare, with the aim to take diners on a culinary journey through the Southern regions: think home made fresh pasta and Neapolitan pizzas alongside fresh fish and seafood dishes. Gluten free pasta and pizzas are also on the menu. The team hails from the likes of Naples, Sardinia, Calabria and Sicily and we are highly passionate and knowledgeable about the food we serve.
The owner was lovely. The food was decent, some really nice (like battered courgette), some I felt I could have done the same at home (like the pasta). Its decent food.
Amazing food and lovely service. Would definitely go back and recommend.
Amazing southern Italian cuisine
Third time I've been. I tend to go earlier because I have a small child with me. The staff are unobtrusive but attentive. The food is good and seems to be good value. I believe it does get busier in the evenings, which would add to the ambiance. All in all, this is an uncomplicated Italian restaurant, well executed.
Overall good experience
The pasta dishes were nicer than the mains
A charming and authentic casual Italian restaurant. Very tasty Naples style pizza (chewy not crispy) and friendly service. A lovely low key evening out!
Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Food was excellent and the prices reasonable. Will definitely go again.
Good food overall though portion sizes seem to be smaller than before for the money
Meridionale is fabulous with a range of mouthwatering dishes on the menu, I adore the Linguine Vongole and the pizzas are cooked in true Sicilian style, good wine list and attentive and helpful staff. Four of us went at lunchtime, we weren't rushed and spent an enjoyable afternoon there. I'd definitely recommend it.
Absolutely sensational restaurant. The food, particularly the pasta, is divine and the staff is incredibly kind and attentive. I can not recommend Meriodionale enough!
Now a staple on our rota. Never fails to deliver and at short notice can’t be failed to get a table
great find. pizza was fantastic. and desert too. will definitely go back.
It was long time that didn't visit Meridionale but we came back to celebrate NYE for the second year and I must say that the food is delicious as always; fish was fresh and the quality is very good overall. The king prawn in the paranza and scialatielli was super!
We will definitely come back soon! Highly recommended for real traditional Italian food.
Dear Kris, Thank you very much for your beautiful review, it is always a pleasure. We wish you the best possible 2019 and we hope to see you again soon!
Great food and service
They tried to make it up but it was very disappointing and due to the food not the service we will not be returning.
Really enjoyed. Great addition to SW6
Really enjoyed our dinner here - pasta was really fresh and the sauces delicious. Could see all the other plates going past smelling and looking equally good! We went for my friends birthday and they even brought us a delicious slice of tiramisu with a candle at the end! Very good service and lovely little restaurant
We are so happy to hear that. We are always pleased when someone chooses to celebrate their birthday in our restaurant. We hope to see you again very soon!
Another Italian restaurant? Well yes, but with a difference. The menu had meals from the south of Italy I hadn't experienced before. The four of us had very different choices, from pizza to vegetarian pasta and each was served quickly and we each agreed that our chosen meal was at the top of its class. The vegetarian pasta in particular was described as the 'best ever'.
Even though the guys serving were very busy we never had to ask for anything, the service was excellent.
A favourite go to restaurant always welcoming and friendly
great food, we'd say probably one of the best pizza in town.
Very fast service and the food tasted fresh and homemade. They were very accommodating of our group with lots of kids and everyone in the group loved it.
My husband and I spent a very nice evening at Meridionale. The food was great and good value. The service efficient and non intrusive. It was a Wednesday night so it was pretty quiet, which suited us. There were a few people dining alone, and I can see why it would be a good place for that. Would recommend.
We had such a great evening, brilliant service and the food was amazing.
Great place for lunch! Amazing homemade pasta
Great food, great restaurant- would definitely go again.
Great pizza's and good service today. One of our fav's in this area.
Wedding anniversary. Great food, great service as usual
Food was very good, very tasty and good portion sizes. The red wine was excellent. Service was a little slow but apart from that a pleasant experience
Accogliente, personale gentile e socievole. Pizza italiana ottima !
Really nice atmosphere, had a little Bday dinner with friends and family. Pizza was G R E A T! Really recommended, and dessert tasty too! Ingredients selected properly, the real taste of Italy! I'm sure the mains and starters were good too. If you crave for Pizza and you are local there you won't be disappointed!
The pasta is fresh, the dishes are delicious, service is friendly.
The main man was in today and what a difference he made. Attentive and prompt service. Pizzas were on point as always. The back room has had windows added which give a view onto the outdoor space making room more pleasurable to be in.
We haven't been here for a while and the place has changed somewhat with an extension on the back and garden seating. The Pizzas are still excellent here and my husband had a tomato less one which was scrummy. However the service was lacking. They gave us the menu and then the person taking the orders disappeared. After waiting for someone to take our order we grew weary and eventually called someone over. The sole person in the restaurant apparently couldn't take the order so had to call another person. This individual came up eventually from the cellar. We were at this point the only people in the establishment. Unfortunately I ordered the pasta which tasted excellent but was the size of a starter. The tiramisu was good but at only two thirds of the size of the one I had when I was last here. While my previous visits mean I will visit this place again the strength of their food remains in the pizza's which are worth travelling for.
Nice atmosphere, dim lighting, some of what we ordered was nice and some other dishes were really nice, like the seafood pasta. Three of us have intolerances and we were able to order an amazing gluten free and vegan chocolate souflee. Attentive service. Would go back :)
Having just spent a weekend in Rome where authentic reasonably priced restaurants are plentiful this was disappointing in comparison and overpriced.
My seafood pasta was very good. Unfotunately they had run out of lasagna which was my friend's first choice so she chose gnocchi which she slightly regretted. The sauce was good but she had misread the menu & thought the gnocchi was going to be filled with some meat which it wasn't so rather bland. However she said her pudding - vanilla ice cream with coffee poured over it made up for it! The restaurant was very quiet when we arrived @ 7.30pm but soon filled up & became more lively. The service was good & friendly.
Great food and service as usual
Lovely, authentic, delicious Italian restaurant. The two tables next to us were filled with Italian people, so we took this as a positive sign!
Absolutely delightful independent Italian in Parsons Green. Ordered the seafood linguine which was delicious. The linguine was home made and seafood tasted fresh. This is an undiscovered gem of a place, and the 50% off main meals makes it an absolute bargain! Highly recommend.
The food at this restaurant is amazing!!!!
Thank you very much Emma, we really put a lot of passion and hard work in what we do, so we can bring you an amazing dining experience.
