Old Soho-ites who bewail the steady erosion of their neighbourhood’s Italian character can take heart from Mele e Pere. This casual, confident bar-cum-restaurant delivers what its customers want, while pursuing its own lines of interest (three types of homemade vermouth, we’re looking at you). Ex-Arbutus chef Andrea Mantovani has “added a new dimension to the menu” with sharing starters such as rib-eye tartare and deep-fried squid with smoked aïoli. He doesn’t always play it straight, either – bigoli with spicy spianata salami and broad beans contrasts with the soothingly familiar “comfort food vibe” of risotto milanese. Mains tend to favour butch ideas such as veal chop with borettane onions or lamb’s heart with San Daniele ham and lentils, while acacia and rosemary gelato is a neat way of closing proceedings. Note that decibels can skyrocket in the basement.
Try 200+ wines and food from top restaurants.

I had lunch yesterday at Mele e Pere. The restaurant is a stone away from Piccadilly Circus. The main eating area is downstairs, so there are no windows but the atmosphere is created by the beautiful black and white photographs of normal life in Italy in the 50th/60th. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. I would recommend the hand made focaccia pugliese to start, fresh fusilli with mussels and courgettes and to finish the unbeatable Tiramisu with hand made espresso ice cream on top.

Came in for lunch last week and ordered a few things to share with friends. All dishes were delicious, a real taste from Italy. My favourite dish was the gnocchi! I was never really into it that much until I tried it here and it was so tasty. The staff were also very welcoming and a great place to come and unwind
heard good feedback about it, so decided to check it out.
Service was definitely spot on – attentive and efficient. Plenty of waiters too so if you need anything there are there!
Food. I definitely recommend the clams for starters. The mains – the bream! Ice cream is divine.
I would say it is good for a casual dinner with friends & family.
