Mele e Pere
46 Brewer Street, Soho, London W1F 9TF
Mele e Pere is Italian for Apples and Pears, a delightful play on the Cockney rhyming slang for stairs. The London restaurant's vibrant street level entrance leads diners to the lower level dining area and features a window full of hundreds of brightly coloured Murano glass apples and pears. The fun hand-picked treasures from Italy mixed with vintage tables, chairs, tiles and lighting creates an informal, vibrant atmosphere at this Italian family-run London restaurant.
Born in Verona, chef Andrea Mantovani brings his own style of Italian trattoria to Mele e Pere on London's Brewer Street. The restaurant menu changes daily and uses high quality, fresh ingredients to produce a menu of both classic and modern trattoria dishes including gooey stracciatella cheese with piquant multi-coloured tomatoes or their signature sharing plates such as spicy Ascolana olives, deep fried squid with smoked aioli and San Daniele ham. Served from the retro copper bar is the London restaurants ‘must-try' homemade vermouth used in their original cocktail recipes.
Open from lunchtime continuously into late evening, every day of the week, the London restaurant has a casual, neighbourhood feel making it a popular choice within London's lively Soho.
