Great service, good recommendation on Steak. Well cooked piece of meat.
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.
We loved this restaurant only one down side how do you run out of filet steak at 6:15 on a sat night in Kensington???silly still 👍 great
Great Service, Great Food as usual!
Had a few starters which were all amazing, ideal place for meat lovers.
Advise to keep some room for the Bianco al basilico, refreshing dessert.
Fantastic . Thank your for the service and I wI'll recommend this restaurant to everyone . Cheers
Excellent food and service.
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 :)
Visited restaurant with my girlfriend the people were very polite and the meat was perfect.!!
It was a good italian restaurant
Top food. Top wine. Great service. I will definitely go back for more.
Probably the best steak I have ever had. The filet just melts in your mouth (medium rare). Starters great too. Come prepared to eat meat. It is a cool place.
Das Personal war sehr aufmerksam und freundlich, das Fleisch sehr lecker. Die Weinempfehlung hat ebenfalls gut gepasst. Der Laden hat ein ehrliches und gemütliches Ambiente. Gut für einen Besuch - nichts für jeden Abend.
Perfect for meat lovers. Great food and wine in a cosy restaurant. Very conveniently located for the Kensington museums. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
Good steak but some items are not available like heart. Overall is good especially you love steak.
This was an amazing treat for us and we would go again in a heartbeat! The service was superb and the food was truly wonderful! This restaurant is a hidden gem and everyone who loves great food (the quality is second to none) should go! They even had cake and a candle and all sang to our friend for his birthday!
Amazing experience, one of the best dinner I ever had! I was there for my gf birthday and it was simply amazing, no words can describe the incredible quality of fassona (Italian beef from piedmont) and the outstanding service offered by Andrea, from the moment of ordering to the little cake with candles (and birthday song) given to my gf as surprise. I also had a lot of questions regarding their beef and their wines and he had no problem answering to all I asked. Amazing Italian wine selection. Can’t recommend this place any more. Unmissable at the very least!
Very cosy ambient, super nice and efficient service, very good food and excellent wines list.
Only downside are the quantities of the non-mains part of the menu.
Overall very well enjoyed dinner!
Very nice italian restaurant, actually my favourite one!
Amazing service from Giga, good suggestions!! Great wine and delicious meat....we also enjoyed a lot the ravioli..we had two portions of them..very happy 😋😋😋
Love the authenticity of this place. It’s not perfect in terms of service, design or location, but it’s could not be more delicious, simple, cozy and truly Italian. Our favorite spot in the city.
Service Team were so helpful, with both food and wine choices. I loved the ambiance of dining in a butchers shop, not for vegetarians but great food and some gems on the wine list
Lovely restaurant with an intimate vibe.
Meat was great but too pricey for those portions. The worst affecting my rate was the waiter talking us through wine (without even being asked - I already knew what I wanted). When he discovered that the bottle I chose wasn’t available, he proposed another double the price - without mentioning it. Luckily I know the wine list and what I want, but it wasn’t honest at all and annoyed me much being treated as a dumb customer.
This is not a restaurant for vegetarians or vegans. Just to enter you have to go past displays of cured meats and large cuts ready to be cooked. We sat up at a bench on ground floor and were expertly served in everything but the carafes of wine, which arrived late and one had run out. Food was truly excellent and very very tasty.
Personale preparato e cortese , qualità del cibo ottima
We’ve been in Macellaio Monday night, the food was amazing and the host welcomed us with a big smile and guide us to our table down stairs in a cozy area.
The waiter was a brazilian guy that didn’t make our experience nice at all. Everything started when I was ordering wine they were out of stock of 3 different that I said, so I asked the waiter to recommend us and he only pointed at the most expensive (not really professional) He wasn’t present on our table, leaving dirty dishes on the table. When I asked for the bill he actual said that we were there for 2h47m when usually the table last for only 2h (downstairs was empty only 2 tables with guest included us) was very ODD and random. I really like Macellaio but I think that the service should be reviewed.
Hopefully my next experience will be better.
Service was very friendly.
There's enough good reviews for this restaurant to suggest perhaps we were unlucky, but this was a bad experience in unambiguously definable ways. In no particular order
- The steak dishes were cold
- We had to ask twice for water
- Parmesan not offered with pasta dishes, then 5 minutes after asking it turns up
- It took 30 minutes for our main courses to arrive
- We stared at our empty plates for 15 minutes with no-one interested in clearing our table
- In the end we got up and paid on the way out having managed one course in 55 minutes
Nothing horrendous individually but in aggregate pretty disastrous.
I would also say that it's the most bovine of Italian restaurants and I wouldn't recommend at all if you have a non-meat / non-steak eater as there's very little else on the menu - 5 out of 6 starters are beef! Not a problem, that's their thing right, but the lack of options might catch you out as it did us.
Lovely food and service.
I’m a regular customer and will keep coming back.
Keep Coming back to this place whenever in London. The concept is easy to understand, the quality not to be underestimated - and above all value for money. Running tired of anything else London - Macellaio is still worth the trip.
This is a restaurant for meal lovers, be under no illusions. We ate Steak tartare, proscetto, beek steak and ragu - all of the meat was finely prepared and the steak was cooked to a perfect rare and full of flavour. The ragu was acceptable but ground breaking. We dined at peak hour - 8pm on Saturday night and the service was slightly rushed accordingly but fine. I would highly recommend for lovers of Italian meat! Thank you Macellaio!
Excellent dinner and authentic experience.
T-bone steak was wonderful!
Their meat is unbelievable! Good service as well, very friendly and helpful.
One of the best steak restaurants in London. Service is very attentive and knowledgeable and the atmosphere is great. The prices are a bit expensive but you should expect this for quality food and excellent service in South Kensington. The only thing that my friends(who are coffee lovers) commented on was that the coffee was average. I really like this restaurant and would definitely go back.
Great meal as always.
Nice location and good food. The staff was kind and the menu full of options with may wines to choose. I think I will come back next time I'm in London. It was recommended to me by my brother who was there last may.
Really good Italian meat!! :)
