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!

I've been here many times over the years and was astonished to see Meloncino down at 72 in the trip advisor rankings. Having just spent a week in Umbria, I can attest that it ranks with the best Italian restaurants - in Italy! In particular, the carbonara is a thing of beauty, made without cream, as it should be. Try it!

We dined in Meloncino whilst visiting Cape town last year and it was fantastic. The view of the water is great and the food was exceptional, service was also good for a busy Saturday night so that's a rarity at home. I would recommend their pizzas as the base is lovely and thin and crispy and a good look at their extensive cocktail menu. Thank you.

This restaurant has the most exciting position in the waterfront and the food is excellent. We tried some pasta dishes and we were more than happy with the quality and the service. A nice selection of well priced wines and great cocktails too. We enjoyed the desserts as well and we will return soon.
