Description: Meloncino – Ristorante, Bar, Pizzeria Italiano. Experience authentic Italian cuisine in Cape Town. Meloncino Restaurant opened at the V&A Waterfront, bringing a genuine Italian flavour to our shores. The modern and stylish decor creates an eclectic European vibe where one can sip cocktails and snack on canapes, 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!

Good restaurant - had the line caught fish & was to die for. Melted on tongue.
Also had very good desserts. Good location & atmosphere.

You can't go wrong with a visit to Meloncino - I have visited there a few times and the food is always consistently excellent - the Sicilian fish with capers and olives is simply delicious and their plain margharita pizza is even noteworthy - Staff are friendly but know just when to be at your table and when to give you your space and of course you have a stunning view of the Waterfont! You can't go wrong with this restaurant - I would recommend it to both locals and foreigners without hesitation!

Very good traditional Roman style food with some dishes from other parts of Italy. Wine list is quite extensive with local and overseas wines.

I ordered a seafood soup which was small but sublime! Everyone else ordered pizzas and they really enjoyed them. We also had some sort of dessert cake or tort i dont remember but it was really good, obviously not amazing or I would remember it better.
