Meloncino Ristorante - Bar - Pizzeria Italiano
One Spectacular Venue!
Meloncino at the V&A in Cape Town serves traditional Roman food with a contemporary modern touch. Home-made pasta and authentic Italian sauces, steaks and seafood are available from the charcoal grill. Pizzas are created in our wood fired oven with thin base (Roman Style) and thick base (Neapolitan Style). To stay faithful to the original recipes, the majority of our ingredients and wines are fully imported from Italy.
