Mele E Pere
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.
£45 Christmas Menu
Each person should order one main course and one desert of their choice. The antipasti will be shared around the table. A discretionary 12.5% service charge will be added to your bill.

This is usually my favourite Italian restaurant, but for the first time since I've been going here the service wasn't good at all. I understand they were busy, but we seemed to be forgotten on a table at the back - our drinks (just a bottle of wine) took over half an hour to arrive, and our starters weren't cleared for a long time after we'd finished. Disappointing as my friends and I normally love this restaurant.
Always great food and lovely service. Great atmosphere on a Friday night, service quick but we weren’t rushed to leave which was appreciated.
Good food, good cocktails. Shame we weren't offered the deal that we opted for on OpenTable. Otherwise, a perfectly acceptable restaurant
Food was lovely, service was super slow we didn’t even get a chance to have our desert as they took so long in taking our order and getting our drinks
My second visit to Mele e Pere, and my last. Service was awful. We had to stand up and wave our arms in order to be served after 45 minutes of sitting at our table. We saw at least 3 other parties be seated and subsequently leave because they hadn’t been served. The food was average at best. Pleased we only went on the set menu, it definitely wouldn’t be worth it at full price (the prices are extortionate-just go to Cecconi’s)
The food was below mediocre. When lunch was served, a whole bunch of (what I perceived to be) flies swarmed us. The lobster pasta was extremely disappointing. The only decent thing that tasted good was the tiramasu and the water.
Unfortunately, I took a client there for a business lunch. I'm behind embarrassed at this point. Guess next time, I'll do a better job reviewing others feedback or simply let her choose.
It is listed at the guide michelin guide so i thought I might give it a try. Itwas a pre theatre dinner so the place was empty and there is nothing to say about ambiance.
The food was mediocre. Fair gnocchi. Overcooked bistecca fiorentina.
Sum up : Nothing to write home about.
Nice place, good food, generous portions. Accommodated 2 extra guests that turned up last minute with no fuss.
Nice hidden space of a restaurant with good food and good service.
I ve been there twice and it s a shame I just discovered this place after 5 years living there! I definitely recommend it, very nice Italian food, tagliatelle bolognese were outstanding and staff very friendly and attentive
I love this place. I often go here for a pre-theater meal, but this time I was in no hurry. The food was great, beautiful flavors and combinations. The service was very friendly, but it took them a while before they came over to ask if we wanted to drink something
Very cosy place with friendly and helpful staff. We booked set menu and we shared few available options, all really good! Delicious burrata as a started was the best choice, excellent pork Belly as a main! Definitely can recommend for family meetings of friends gatherings.
Very good service. The food is good. It is a nice everyday resturant to pop into to get a meal.
We sat at the bar. Excellent suggested pairing of vermouth with meal, but bartender could be more outgoing. We were obvious in our attempt to learn more about vermouth, and could have been sold more if bartender was more talkative.
We had a group of 10. The food turned out pretty good but they were very slow. They were about 80% full but the service was terrible. Our server was unfriendly, it turns out she was the manager!
I really like this restaurant and have no hesitation recommending it. On this occasion however I had to mark it down. It was a Monday night and I don't think they were expecting many people but suddenly there were, and with only two floor staff there were some serious service challenges. It won't stop me going back though.
We had a table of 8 and it was all spot on. Delicious!
Conveniently located in Piccadilly Circus - overpriced menu, rude inattentive staff (particularly a guy with a lousy moustache and glasses). Food was average but overpriced for what it was. Cocktails were not bad. Save your money, go to Kiln down the road.
Great ambience, food and service. Great value especially £29 menu
Fine example of classy Italian bistro in buzzing Soho. Fresh pasta compliments imaginative cuisine. Outstanding service
Used to be nice in the past. Now- cafe standard food at restaurant price. Won’t be coming back.
The ambience wasn’t very existent, luckily I was out with a great friend so didn’t matter so much as she had me laughing.
We ordered and our meal was out within about 3 minutes, must have been microwaves?
The desert also was very odd - cold set meringue with cold custard.
Would have been nice if there were better choices on the set menu as there’s wasn’t much to chose from.
Took advantage of the £20 3 courses + glass of prosecco and had the Burratta, Tagliatelle with beef ragu and the pink meringue dessert. Very good value for money for £20, but you do get what you pay for. The meals were pretty standard Italian fare, with nothing special. Service was quite slow as it was a busy Saturday night, but portions were good and the price even better! Perfect if you want a filling, reasonably priced meal, but nothing really special here. The place was bustling with a good atmosphere. I would come back.
We had a table downstairs but decided to remain upstairs because there seemed to be too much noise emanating from the dining area. The service people were good and attentive. The food on their "prix fixe" menue was limited but good and we chose that food. The Buratta was excellent. We weren't expecting the moon and we did well nonetheless. A good soho location.
Great service, great team serving - will go back.
Our service and food was amazing.
Food was very tasty and the vibe is great.
Only downside was that the restaurant was understaffed so it was tricky to get a waiter’s attention, despite asking numerous times.
Staff was nice but the service was super slow, then the risotto was served tepid. I would possibly recommend as the quality of the food was good, but definitely not at busy times.
The food is absolutely fantastic! We had porcini, artichoke bruschetta and a T-bone steak to share. Everything was very delicious. They have an all day every day Spritz deal 2 for 1.
The only downside to the restaurant is, it is sooo loud. It’s hard to have a conversation. We had to leave right after our main meal as it got worse and worse.
Mele e Pere is one of my favourite Italian restaurants! The food is great, atmosphere lively and fun, service excellent and the value is outstanding. Will definitely eat here again.
The food was nice but the service wasn’t good.
I love Mele e Pere! I came to this restaurant twice last week as I love the location, food and atmosphere and the set menu deal is a bargain. Will definitely be going back!
An unusually quiet evening in the restaurant, which is why ambience was slightly lower scored, but otherwise the food was top quality as always.
We were on the fixed price offer, and it was refreshing to see that the menu has been updated with new additions, which is clever because we will come back again.
Excellent and beautifully prepared food, with astonishing value.
My fourth visit and the standards are always maintained. Absolutely a neighbourhood gem of a restaurant.
Being an early table to the restaurant once the place got busy it was difficult to get a waiters attention. The food was ok but I would have expected better for the price.
Very good location, easy to get to. Food was cooked perfectly. Very polite and extremely helpful waiter.
Always a great meal, great value too with the set menu
We have been waiting for 99 minutes.... was no one else on restaurant we ask 3 time change Brocken glass and every time bring onother Brocken one in the end we drink in 2 from 1 glass food quality not fresch finocchiona have been clearly cut days before and no test on gnocchi and no test on other pasta just the tiramisu was good also they offer a glass of bubble with out inform wich one was .... and in complain they just take out the service charge
