Nice, cosy restaurant! Mushroom, Ricotta starter was great. I wasn't impressed with my spaghetti carbonara but the cheesecake for dessert was one of the best I've eaten! Great service, friendly staff and good price! I will visit again!,

This is maybe the worst restaurant I ever been to! The staff was very unmotivated and had a bad attitude. I waited 55 minutes for a pizza even though the restaurant was half-empty. And the pizza was really awful. Far from "italian"

We stopped here for an early dinner and it was absolutely fine. Relatively standard Italian fare but the food was good, the service excellent, and it is well located right in the heart of Soho. You could do worse.

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho
hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a
compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars,
and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red
Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –
and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the

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.
