At a first glance it looked like any average Italian restaurant. Early in the evening a few customers only. Their canneloni was good but not spectacular. The cheese platter with honey won my heart, however; it was simply delicious! By the time I had finished...More

An Italian restaurant out of the ordinary, Melanie���s specialises in Neapolitan food, setting it apart from the numerous other dining rooms in London���s central Soho area. Located on the notorious Old Compton Street, close to Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square and the numerous theatres and cinemas the West End has to offer, Melanie���s is easy to spot thanks to its large awning proudly displaying the red, green and white of the Italian flag. Inside, you���ll find a dining room clad in much light wood and full of light, traditional, simple and comfortable in its d��cor. In the kitchen, the focus is very much on the use of good ingredients, the chefs sourcing local and seasonal produce for their classic Neapolitan dishes. You���ll recognise many of Melanie���s offerings, from favourite pizzas to well known pasta dishes, but you���ll also be tempted to try the specialties of the house which include the typical ingredients of Naples and the surrounding countryside and have roots in the Greco-Roman period.
