Description: 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.

“Love it here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

We have been to Melanie's restaurant a few times before theatre trips and on days out with the kids in London. We have never been disappointed. The service is always good, the Taff always very welcoming and friendly to the children. The food is good value for money and delicious. The kids love pizza at Melanie's and the specials are always delicious. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Happened to stumble upon this restaurant on the way to the theatre. Had sardines (truly delicious) and a pasta course. Great food, staff and service also very welcoming. Would definitely return.

“Great food and service in the centre of London”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

We found this restaurant by chance having been to the theatre. What a find, excellent value for money, very good traditional Italian food and first class service. The restaurant was very busy even during the early evening, testament to its quality. I will definitely eat there again and look forward to doing so.

“great food, great value, not your average high London price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

An old favourite of ours of many years. Lovely food, good service, pretty good prices for central London and not a chain which is a bonus. Very busy pre theatre but always managed to get a table and early evening pretty quiet. All meals appeared freshly cooked, will be back next visit

Have to say this restaurant is pretty cool.
We were going to a birthday bash at the Palace Theatre to see Singing in the Rain so I booked this restaurant as it is only a click away from the venue.
Staff were really polite and efficient and were really helpful as we had a limited time schedule so the food was pretty quick and delicious.
Would recommend and will re visit.
