Description: Meloncino – Ristorante, Bar, Pizzeria ItalianoExperience authentic Italian cuisine in Cape TownMeloncino restaurant opened at the V&A Waterfront, bringing a genuine Italian flavour to our shores. The modern and stylish décor create an eclectic European vibe where one can sip cocktails and snack on canapés, nuts and olives. As someone suggested, “Close your eyes and you could be in Rome.” Open your eyes and you face the magnificent Table Mountain, as seen from the comfort of one of Meloncino’s white sofas. Expect home-made pasta with authentic Italian sauces, steaks and seafood from their charcoal grill, traditional wood-fired pizza and an extensive menu to choose from. In order to stay faithful to the original, various ingredients like cheese, coffee and wine are imported from Italy. Buon appetito!

“Elegant eating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Amongst all the restaurants it was nice to find one with lovely table cloths and a welcoming Manager. I had a seafood pasta that came elegantly wrapped in cellophane. Proper Italian pasta with shell fish that tasted of the sea. Had a similar meal at one of the fish restaurant chains but this was far superior and only a fraction more in price. Well recommended.

“A good choice for a great meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

This was my favorite and most-visited restaurant during my two-week stay in Cape Town. The restaurant was busy every night I was there, including mid-week. The pizzas are excellent, but there are many other items on the menu. The waitstaff is friendly and makes the guests feel welcome and appreciated. I’ll surely return

“Great meal, fantastic service, brilliant value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

My husband, two daughters and I ate at Meloncino. Service was fantastic, they couldn't do enough for us. Excellent pasta, stunning breads and a tasty desert all washed down with a very nice bottle of red. Refurbishment works meant the toilets were out of action which was a bit of an inconvenience, but that was the only downside to what was otherwise a lovely evening.

“Simply Superb!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Very helpful and courteous staff, allowed us to share food which is against their normal policy. Courteous and good service. Great food as well. A winning combination.
