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.
with shaved Umbria black truffle and smoked ricotta
Deep Fried Squid
smoked garlic aioli
Roast Baby Chicken
portobello mushrooms and green olives
Very good evening as always here. But the set menu and a la carte offered a wide choice of excellent Italian food which was well presented. Wine list has choices to suit all pockets. Highly recommended
We had a pre-theatre meal both from the set menu. We liked the basement decor and ambience. Service was good - quick and friendly. Menu is a little limited but I think it preferable to offer fewer really good quality dishes, and that seems to be what they do. Our food was lovely. The dishes were relatively simple traditional Italien staples but very well executed and quality of ingredients shone through. Good sized portions too! Prices are very reasonable and you cannot fault the restaurant on value for money. Overall an impressive first experience.
Delicious food, really good prices for authentic Italian food
We have been to Mele and Pere for a pre-theatre dinner - service was really efficient, the food was served rapidly and the tiramisu, excellent! Definitely recommend it for this kind of occasion!
Early evening visit to Mele e Pere to meet a friend. Fairly quiet at 5:15pm, but very busy by the time we left at 6:50. Food and service were both to the usual high standards, and the three course set menu with a glass of bubbles is simply amazing value. As always, highly recommended.
My go-to Italian in Soho - the set menu is great value and the food is delicious and authentic. There is always a great vibe there - and not too loud. Would definitely recommend!
Great starters very good indeed. Below average service from staff. 15 mins sat down until we could catch anyone’s attention. Truffle pasta definitely not a good choice! Very watery without flavour and floating congealed oil. Ragu better! Good portions. Stick with your starters and try to go with the slow service and you’ll be ok!
Great service and value for money
Family came into town and the lady be Italian as was going to theatre did a quick search and this popped up. Never noticed b4 nor would have just walked in due to its street presence BUT what a gem.
Extremely good food and excellent service. Portions are generous.
I really enjoyed my dinner here. The food was adequate. Good value. the only complaint I have is that the restaurant is very vibrant - for some may be too noisy. So it depends on if you like places with the load atmosphere or not. The service was good and the servers were attentive. Overall happy with my dinner here, would come again
Artisan style restaurant and fresh pasta. Felt ‘real’ and not touristy. Lovely friendly staff and cosy atmosphere downstairs. Would recommend.
I'm a big fan of their Pre Theatre Menu. It's tasty, seasonal, fresh, reasonably priced and quickly served. A great option to try a new dish at every visit.
Went with our in-laws and had a super evening al together..
Very efficient staff , friendly and polite..
Very accommodating as we asked to change something from the menu at no bother at all.
A really nice place with young, eager and helpful staff.
The place is a bit loud, but we had a nice table tucked in a corner. the only drawback was the loudspeaker above.
Would definitely go back
Nice friendly service. Thanks to our waiter/reception front desk for a nice experience. Good value for money. Quality food. Would recommend 😊
Booked a quiet time on Saturday afternoon but was still quite busy
Went for set price plus bubbles as booked via opentable but we needed to ask for this menu
All food was good quality, well cooked & presented, albeit limited choice which is understandable
Well worth a return visit as its a solid, community Italian
service was good, busy and noisy as expected but food excellent and great value for money. definitely coming back
A great lunchtime spot for a group to meet as it was quiet and no time pressure. A bit expensive for what it is.
once again Male E Pere didn't disappoint. this very inconspicuous trattoria bubbles underground, hidden on Brewer street. The food was sensational with a very creamy and delicious Burratta topping the Bruschetta loaded with sweet tomato. the T bone was well cooked and soft, but you could certainly do with more chips!
All sensational for a very modest price.
Had the set menu , three courses and glass of bubbly for £20. Excellent value and excellent food. Good service and nice restaurant, not too noisy for a catch up with friends. Would definitely go back
Will definitely return. Really good all round.
My friends all enjoyed too.
Salame e gnocchi starter was especially delicious, and the whole set-menu-with-prosecco deal was a great value
Set menu is great value. Staff are brilliant. Thank you!
Restaurant and food disappointing. pear in beetroot salad hard ...both small pieces! Ambience more a cafe than restaurant.
I’ve tried their pre-theatre menu with 2 courses tonight for the first time. The vegetarian main course -orecchiette- was really good but nothing special about the tiramisu.
Overpriced generic Soho joint
enjoyed the lunch special! the pasta was very well seasoned and al dente!
Loved the ambience with great music without being too loud. Staff were friendly, happy and on it. Food was really tasty. Definitely recommend.
The special offer menu was a little limited in choice and service was a little slow on the afternoon we visited. The main course was a generous portion and had a home made flavour. Perhaps outside the Christmas holiday period the service and choice are more impressive
Had a pre-Christmas dinner here with former work colleagues, and had the Festive set menu which was delicious! Service not amazing as the restaurant was full but the food was excellent and good value for money.
Fantastic food - the burrata and prosciutto, focaccia with sun-dried tomato was wonderful. As well as the beef ragu and good portion size albeit slightly on the expensive side. Restaurant could have had a little more atmosphere but I think was due to our lunch being on the early side (12.15).
The food is superb - I’ve been a few times but never ate so well before. Meatball starter is in a sublime tomato sauce, fresh crusty bread, creamy burrata etc, all the starters were yummy. Had the truffle macaroni as main and it was lovely too. Thanks for a great meal.
I have been to Male E Pere before and really enjoy it because the food is good and reasonable and it has a good atmosphere. The staff are warm and helpful. A good casual place to go with friends and family.
Homely Italian cooking, done with quality and style. No pretentiousness, just good honest food and wine.
All ways great pleasure to eat here
Came here initially on the Sunday for a birthday lunch and enjoyed it so much I came back again this week for more! On Sunday, there was a huge group of us, and we had an amazing value Sunday set menu, 4 courses for £25...what a treat! Every dish was perfect, the staff handled our messy group with humour and patience! On my return, this time I dined off the al la carte menu and it did not disappoint. A great Soho option for quality food and great service. Will be back (again!)
Worst risotto ever, poor service. Never eating here again.
Absolute terrible service..waited for an hour for a bottle of wine and asked for this on 5 separate occasions. Staff were not polite or friendly. The main course, a pasta dish, was cold, hard and bitter.
We will definitely not be returning..
I was very excited to have diner in this restaurant where I took my friend for her birthday. Flavors were a bit odd, some dishes were delicious (the cauliflower) but the burrata on brussel sprouts... kills it. I was overall disappointed in the experience and still can’t belive these guys put olive oil on cheese.
The food was amazing great service!
