A friend and I called for a meal on Friday night. The restaurant wasn't very busy but the customer service and quality of the food at a very reasonable price was excellent. I would highly recommend the olive starter and the pepperoni pizza.

We tried this restaurant without any thoughts in our minds. It was fully packed and thats why service was slow. However, everybody was friendly and nice. We liked our plates. Desert, Italian cheesecake, was amazing. Definetly we will go again.

This is our favourite restaurant in London. Always busy but always good food and service. Reasonably priced for London.

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.
