Battersea Square & its environs must have been in dire need of a bar-deli-trattoria, judging from the response to Melanzana since it began trading a year or so ago. The venue, inhabiting the premises of a former pub, is open from breakfast until late at night. Customers wander in enticed by excellent deli counters & the prospect of decent coffee, but soon find themselves planning lunch & dinner here too. Grab a table in the slightly haphazard interior – if a seat isn’t available, you probably won’t have to wait long – & tuck into simple, good salads, fresh pastas & top-class pizzas. A meal is a casual affair, but it’s inexpensive & good fun. What’s more, the quality of the cooking is matched by the cheerfulness of the staff.
