Squaremeal Review of Melanzana ?

Battersea Square must have been in dire need of a bar-deli-trattoria, judging from the response to Melanzana since it began trading. The venue, inhabiting the premises of a former public house, is open all through the day. Customers wander in enticed by excellent deli counters and the prospect of decent coffee (100% Arabica, don't you know?), but soon find themselves planning lunch and 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 – and tuck into simple, good salads, fresh pastas and top-class pizzas. A meal is a casual affair, but it’s inexpensive and good fun. What’s more, the quality of the cooking is matched by the cheerfulness of the staff.

They also have a good little deli counter serving up ciabatta sandwiches made to order. As a consequence it's...

I am not really sure why it has taken me so long to write this review as this is a venue I have held in high regard since I first stepped through its doors shortly after it opened. Maybe it is a personal concern that the casual diner may be drawn to the new Bennett which has opened and, visually at least, offers a somewhat more glamorous and appealing look. That is not to say that this is about knocking Bennett but merely to butress Melanzana. In short, I have always found the experience at Melanzana...
