Amazing antipasto and friendly staff.

I went today with a friend to have a dinner... We started with a antipasto one of the best I've tried in London ... We could see how they cut the procciuto and the cheese in front of us. The antipasto was followed by a veal and a homemade pasta with ragu which both of the mains course were... read more

Visited late afternoon on Saturday after being pointed in the direction of Battersea Square by the Hotel, who told us that 'there was an Italian down there' Warm welcome, good service, and the most delicious pizzas we have had in a very long time. Very helpful when asked if we could take some of mine back to the hotel (it... More

I went into this place last night after a very tiring journey home and just couldn't be bothered cooking. I was not disappointed. It was busy but the atmosphere was relaxed, low key and intimate. I was quickly seated and left to decide on my choices. In the end I had two glasses of wine, bread & olives and the... More

We were visiting London and decided to book a table for four, as it was a Friday evening. When we arrived, we were the first guests but the restaurant soon got full. This was a sign that the restaurant was popular with people living in the locality. Each of us ordered a different dish and my veal saltimboca was superb.... More

My wife and I happened upon this restaurant this lunchtime and had the fortune to do so. On arrival we were greeted and seated, offered drinks and given menus quickly. We chose starters and mains, a bottle of wine and water. All arrived at a relaxed pace, perfect for us, and was superbly cooked. Then came two lovely puds and... More

It's really good food and traditional. The waiters had wanted to close the restaurant. We spent £180,00 for two people. Felt the waiters comment on the two of us. The eat really good. The staff horrible. We will never return more. I'm sorry.

I had the chance to eat at La Melanzana couple of times and I always had pizza and I found it very good and generous. Owner and waiters are polite and service is fast. I recommend it.

Four of us visited the Melanzana without booking at the last minute latish on a Thursday. They were very friendly and fitted us in quickly. The meal was nicely prepared and presented and appeared quite quickly. After a decent shared starter of buffalo mozarella and tomato salad we had a variety of mains. My husband had sea bass and vegetables... More

This is a super local Italian restaurant, it's generally pretty busy, so it's wise to book. they serve classic Italian dishes, but some with a twist. Also they'll make any classic pasta dish even if it's not on the menu. There's a good Italian wine list, and great home made desserts. There's even a deli section if you want to... More
