As someone who hates no reservation restaurants, Mele e Pere usually comes to my rescue when I'm looking for a last minute table in Soho after work. Not only can you book but you can usually walk in and get a table, particularly if you're happy to wait at the bar. And don't discount the bar as an inferior option to the dining area - last time I visited I sat at the counter and it was arguably more enjoyable than sitting down at a table. I'd highly recommended for negroni-lovers (they make their own vermouth), and the food menu might not change much but it's very reliable (gnocchi with truffle and the pasta dishes are always good).

Fantastic Italian restaurant in Soho! Their gnocchi is to die for it's so delicious. Lovely independently run restaurant. They host monthly vermouth masterclasses which are good fun too!

This is one of my favourite places to eat. The food is spectacular and great value for money. The downstairs dining area has a great atmosphere and the staff are professional yet friendly. Would highly recommend!

Mele is one of my favourite restaurants in London, I have gone many time - its great for lunch and very reasonable and fantastic for an evening meal. Great atmosphere, really friendly staff. The chef is amazing, every dish is beautifully presented and tastes out of this world.

I would highly recommended this place to everyone, I just need to thinking up a reason to go back there - so who's birthday is it next? 


Fantastic Italian trattoria in the heart of Soho. Great value with a set lunch offering superb main course dishes for £8.50 plus the usual fab sharing plates and their own homemade vermouth.


The food was perfect. Tasted great and presented well. Excellent value for money as well. Why 4/5 stars? Our waiter was a bell-end (but maybe he was having a bad day).


Absolutely awesome restaurant! I had spent 7 hours over two days trying to find a restaurant in Soho at such short notice that could accommodate 10 of us for a team dinner, and eventually found this place. Wasn't sure what to expect as I hadn't heard about it and the reviews were not too amazing, but from the moment I tasted their balsamic vinegar (sweeet and thick - so delicious!) to the moment I smelt my amazing truffle risotto (the BEST I have ever had!), to finally the chocolate fondant with ice cream, that was it - I am hooked on this place! Good value for money. Great service. Excellent food! Enough said.


Great, good value food in a very cosy environment. The menu changes with seasons, but if you still see the Octopus dish on the menu - go for it!


Finally a good Italian restaurant in Soho with reasonable prices!! I went for lunch during the week, the meat was amazing, a long time a didn't have that kind that melts in your mouth. So I repeated for a Saturday night, pasta this time, and again super good, super good ambience, the bar is very cool and the venue as well, highly recommended.


Delicious pasta, stellar seafood, amazing gelato. We loved the wine list, the attention to detail and the tripe.... Don't leave without trying the tripe. Definitely will be back, this is top notch northern Italian.


Had a fantastic evening at Mele e Pere. Finally a decent place to have a proper plate of pasta! The ice cream was exceptional too and the bar is very cool. Highly recommend it!
