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!

Beautiful food in a chic environment. This busy restaurant serves a wide range of Italian specialities with its own twist. Pleasant atmosphere, extensive wine list for all pockets and excellent menu.

Easy to find. Look for McDonalds, go up the stairs, turn right and follow the exterior of the V & A complex. Enjoy.

We ate here twice while visiting Cape Town and loved it. Pleasant service, good wine list, good Italian fare. Pretty reasonable prices too.

I highly recommend a visit. The food is first-rate. I suspect there may not be an Italian on the staff but that hardly matters.
Indoor accommodation is available but the balcony is the supreme location. Views over the V & A Waterfront are very attractive but they’re nothing by comparison with Table Mountain and Devil’s Peak. Check out the photograph; I’m serious.
The service is excellent and prices are reasonable when you take into consideration an assumed premium charged by all local eateries with that view. I went straight from another bar/restaurant where my wife managed to eat but I didn’t.
We went back half-a-dozen times during a two week stay. That’s my idea of an endorsement. Give it a try.

This gem can really deliver on good quality food and service. Very attentive staff and front of house management. Although busy over the Dec/Jan period, they made sure that all our needs were met. highly recommend it.
