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!

The restaurant is welcoming and cosy. Service is friendly and helpful. Food is also good for the type of Italian cuisine it is proposing. The meat is good and cooked to perfection. As the name implies, if you do not like meat, this is not the place for you.

Amazing meat cooked perfectly
Only negative is we should have checked the bill better as we had been charged one bottle of wine more than we’d had.

WHEN WE ARRIVED THE HOSTESS COULD NOT FIND THE BOOKING. I SHOWED THE OPENTABLE EMAIL ON MY PHONE. THE ANSWER WAS "I HAVE 1 TABLE AVAILABLE ANYWAY".... THE 2 FREINDS WITH FILLET AND STEAK WERE VERY HAPPY, I HAD TONGUE AND RABBIT AND BOTH WERE VERY TOUGH AND DISAPPOINTING . THE WAITER HAD TOLD ME TO EAT THE FIORENTINA ......

I was VERY surprised and disappointed with the overall quality of the dinner. The quality of the 700g ribeye I ordered was way below average, poor and which is something NOT acceptable under any circumstances in a restaurant specialized in meat. I know when the meat is good and that evening was definitely NOT the case. Side dishes, eg salads, were not fresh. Once again we were very surprised by the food quality. Overall the restaurant atmosphere is nice, but disappointing food quality, at least for my dinner.

Had the best steak in London. Tiramisu and basil panna cotta also out of this world 🚀 wines are listed by how steaks are cooked or can be bought how you like. All in all was above my expectations. Can’t wait to go again.

They truly know how to make good out of beef.
Had beef tartare, bone marrow and beef tongue.
They are all awesome !


Took advice to order costata. Nicely done steak!

Portion is good. Can’t fit in anymore dessert.

We had a great experience in Macellaio. The staff is very friendly and the waitress did a great service.
We had the rib of beef and the orecchia di elefante which were perfectly cooked and very tasty.
Great selection of wines. The only negative comment is that the restaurant is very noisy. We will be back

With a in-house butchery, this Italian Grill restaurant will satisfy your meat cravings. But not only the offerings of meaty cuts, the pasta dishes were good.

I have to say that it was a lovely restaurant with a great atmosphere. But very expensive. I had the chicken and even though it was tasty there was hardly any meat on it and was still hungry afterwards. The food was served on side plates to give the illusion of lots of food!!

Food was good but so expensive. I am happy to pay for a really decent meal but felt a little drilled off to be honest

Great food, great service too but I didn't like the 2 hour slot here. I'm guessing it was because it was 8pm on Saturday but it would have been nice to have another 30 mins to enjoy dessert instead of rushing. I will be back soon though :)
