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!

“ALL ROUND Fantastic”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 via mobile

A last minute change of plans had us sit down at Meloncino for late afternoon coffee and something light to eat.

The service was swift and very friendly, from waiters to Managers at every table to check on their patrons.

The view simply adds to the experience to put that cherry on the top!

We will definitely be back!

If you like italian food, you will like this restaurant. The staff is very friendly, the food is delicious and well prepared. The only negative point is the absence of lazanha in menu.

“It was good”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

We ate here on our first night in Cape Town following a long journey. It was just what we wanted. Away from the crowds, good service and the food was good. We had a pizza, a pasta and good wine for a reasonable price. It is worth going up the stairs to this place and is probably the best italian in the Waterfront..
