Italian
Welcome to MACELLAIO RC SOUTH KENSINGTON, kingdom of the Italian Fassona beef and the first butchery-restaurant opened in London.

We offer only products of excellence from the best Italian companies such as Fassona beef, charcuterie, delicious cheeses and a quite extensive selection of Italian wines. When selecting them, we want to praise not only the product itself but -above all- the work of the artisans workers that are behind them.
The beef selection takes place from small farms located between Monforte d'Alba, Serralunga, Roddi and Alba, where each animal is treated with respect.

And our façon d-être, of course, the typical Italian way: a warn familiar greeting the willingness to provide the best service, like when entering in an old Trattorie of 'Bel Paese'…
Welcome and feel like home!

    We always, always, ALWAYS go to this restaurant if we’re staying in the area as their food and service is excellent; we’ve never been disappointed and can’t rate them highly enough. Yes, it’s on the expensive side but this is South Kensington!

    Macellaio has the potential to be a nice place to eat, but they had an off day when we were there. The burger of my guest was overcooked and my poussin was tiny.

    I had heard great things about this restaurant and was excited to try it out. The front of house was accommodating with tables but unfortunately that’s where the service stopped. We had to ask 3 times to order and when ordering the server was only interested in up selling the most expensive meat at large portions. He showed us three sizes before becoming frustrated and choosing a portion for us, of course it was too big and was never finished. The server also got the dish wrong, we had ordered what the table next to us had and didn’t offer to replace it. In saying that the bone marrow to start was very good but unfortunately the rest of the food, including vegetable side dishes were covered in large amounts of oil :(

    very good food and explanations from the waiter regarding the different types of meat. the fries were a bit expensive for a side dish, this was the only negative aspect of our evening.

    Excellent service and knowledgeable staff, good recommendations. The only thing I would point out is the bread which was a bit dry. I had a really good experience overall and I would definitely come again.

    Had dinner there with my girlfriend on a sat night / ypu will want to make sure you can sit in the back room to get the ambience of the place The attraction is the steak / and meat more generally - it is dry aged / prepared on the bone and presented off - high quality but lacking seasoning Sides rather small - desserts traditional selection for Italian but well prepared Wine list varied but on expensive side The result is a full 3 course dinner for more than £125 a person. Thus, the moderate value for money

    This restaurant has lost its mojo - no longer a friendly service and quite a dull food. Feels like you're at Italian party you were not invited to.

    Very disappointed to arrive and be told that we only had the table for 90 minutes which was just enough time for starters and mains. Food good, service otherwise attentive, always feels a little expensive. Won't be rushing back for another rushed experience.

    Really nice meal. We paid £243 for two people with awesome starters and great steak . Nice Barbera wine. Our Italian waiter was nice. But when we wanted to order dessert the hostess or manager had the attitude that we should just get on with it as she wanted to seat others at our table.she said we had recess mail stating we had 90 min at our table. But the mail actually said 2 hours. When we made a fuss they gave us one desert and 2 drinks. This was a compensation but it was obvious that the hostess was not having a good day and was not giving a good impression of the place. Not sure I want to return.
