So bang slap in the middle of Soho there’s a smart restaurant serving honest, unfussy Italian food and interesting drinks at fair prices – you just need to know that it’s there, and now you do…

The menu is, as the name suggests, Italian, but very much in a think-you-you-cope-with-us? sort of way. There is very little in the way of comfort food…

So, good seasonal Italian food but a really bum place to sit and spend time. With spring almost upon us, it’s time these cats got hip to the new way of doing things, packed everything into some sort of kebab van or moveable trestle table…

Tiramisu arrived like an over-exuberant busty hug from Nigella Lawson. Creamy, boozy and oh so slightly wrong. After a heavy hunk of pasta it’s almost a step too far. Enough, almost too much, to share…

Next time I’m in Soho I will make a point of coming back to Mele e Pere just for a bowl of carbonara and a scoop of ice-cream. It’ll be £10 exceptionally well spent…

Mantovani’s northern Italian cooking embraces ingredients such as tripe, razor clams and rabbit that lift the heart (mine anyway) but so studenty are the bare tables and crap art in the vasty deep of the downstairs and so long the waits for food that their impact is severely diluted…

Service was actually very good, with a friendly waiter who topped up our drinks carefully. Overall this was an entirely pleasant experience, but not one that generated much excitement for me…

Tagliatelle with beef cheek ragu was probably the pick of the bunch, though orecchiette with Romanesco cauliflower, friggitelli and clams was arguably more novel and interesting. A carbonara was nice enough but lacked seasoning. Ravioli of ricotta with walnut pesto looked good, but was also under seasoned…

Pasta is such a common everyday staple that’s it hard to get excited by the stuff anymore, but my pasta dish here was intriguing. The orecchiette shells mirrored the shape of the clam shells and the firmness of the pasta was complimented well by the salty squishiness of the clams…
