FoodBlog – Cape Town Restaurants: Meloncino
All roads lead to Rome – Why go to Rome, when you can experience Italy right here in Cape Town! :p
Meloncino is located at the V&A Waterfront – more specifically at the V&A Wharf! It is a chick and modern restaurant which prides themselves on their style. Their passionate Italian chefs are always perfecting their new recipes while you, the customers, can enjoy the view of the sea and the mountain.
The restaurant Meloncino offers authentic but unique Italian cuisine. Their signature dish is the Tagliata di Manzo alla Righetto – sliced grilled sirloin steak topped with rockets, cherry tomato and Parmesan cheese. If you feel like pasta, you should try the Spaghetti Scoglio with seafood, cherry tomato and chilli. These dishes will not leave you disappointed. If you are just looking for a small dish, try some of their pizzas – also a delight! They are always trying to push boundaries in elegance, design and craftsmanship.

One of the worst!
Was very excited to sit on the deck and look over the waterfront. Was expecting food like the view! Ordered fresh Italian bread for a starter. How disappointing!! Bread was like rusks and it looked like all the off cuts was put into the little basket. Told the waiter that I hope the food will be better than the starter, he replied that I will not be disappointed and that he will send the manager over. Still waiting for the manager! Drinks was warm most of the time, because you got drinks at room temperature with only one or two small pieces of ice. Then for the main meal! Me and one of my dinner guests ordered pizza. Thought that you just cannot mess up a pizza and a pizza with smoked cheese should be great! Still looking for the smoked cheese as I am still are looking for the manager. So needless to say when waiter asked if we want dessert, the reply was we will get it somewhere else. Food was an absolute disaster and I for sure will not go back. To summarize - great view! Terrible food and management!
