Macellaio RC South Kensington
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!
Even our daughter adored dinner.
Great place, Great food, Great staff!! Grazie!
On the day, the experience was solid - food and service. Then, I was HORRIFIED to read that the restaurant has a zero out of five rating for food hygiene from The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. In light of this, I consider the food and service to be terrible - this place needs to get the basics right. AVOID.
Carne buona ma non eccezionale, patatine fritte al di sotto della media, prezzi esagerati per il tipo di trattoria e rispetto alla qualità.
Absolutely fantastic steak
Super bon moment , service impeccable, et viande de grand connaisseurs , du niveau des steak housses de NYC
Our experience was great, but two tables near us had a bad evening which affected our experience unfortunately.
Overpriced...160 pounds for 3 people with only 1 carafe of wine (not even a bottle) 1 salad and 1 side ! Was recommended the rib eye which was too fatty.
The food was amazing. Very well executed. The place is very cozy and great to dine in with families or friends.
yummy steaks cooked beautifully plus lovely service
craving for Italian beef :
Starter :beef tartare with slight seasoning but the meat is not clear with tendon. Freshly made.
Main : tailored cut rib eye steak and cooked in rare. Aged and therefore very rich and favourable.
Dessert : tiramisu of course~ simply traditional and good.
Dine with Glass of red and sparkling water.
A generally good quality dinner at £80-
Consiglio di aprire le bottiglie dell’acqua davanti ai clienti e non portarle già aperte perché per me possono essere anche bottiglie riempite con acqua di rubinetto
Amazing experience. Food is outstanding but everything around the food is too. I love it!
We booked for 7.30 for 5 people arrived at 7.35 and queues to get into the ground floor After a few minutes of waiting we were led to some stairs and downstairs to a basement area, corner table. The basement area contained about 5 other tables of 2/4 diners and there were 2 busy servers for the whole evening. The explanation of the limited menu was delivered without much charm and we were c just referred to the rather limited written menu, for starters and mains. The steak offering, which was, when It came, an excellent piece of meat, had to be as the price of it 600gm minimum between three people and at £7.00 per gram you need to enjoy meat and not be poor!
Being an appetite and plenty of cash!
The food is spot on. I’m a meat eater and fussy one. The guys explained everything and were amazing. It was my second visit. I just love the carpaccio and the steak was perfect.
The only downside is the side plates £5 for spinach is pushing a bit to hard. Also, they could have more vegetables
Friendly service and very good meat. Set at the back of a butchers
Fabulous place, amazing steaks and
Ambiance. Staff very attentive and would highly recommend this restaurant
Great steak, great service, I was made to feel very welcolm even as a single diner.
Great for meat eaters! Nice decor too.
Meat was tough and red wine was warm
We visited the Restaurant recommended by a friend. Nice place, excellent quality food, friendly and helpful staff.
nice place to enjory a dinner, in particular for beef lover
We came around 9:45 but seat and wait 20min to get someone serviced. Dry age steak is just ok but not expensive. I even don’t know why this rating so high. Compare with other dry aged steak house I was ate before this restaurant is really so so.
As always, wonderful authentic Italian food, with an emphasis on the meats! Very good service and very friendly staff, along with great wines.
Frederico was a great waiter! The food was amazing. Definitely recommend the stracciatella cheese as a starter, it is to die for! I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and the restaurant surprised him with a slice of cake at the end of the meal. Overall, it was a great evening and we would definitely come back.
Our booking was accepted. I was then called and asked if we could arrive earlier as they were very busy but the restaurant was empty on arrival and exit. Each of our wines was awful despite being £17 a glass. We changed wines and the improvement was marginal. My T bone was tasteless. The lady serving us was very sweet - the only saving grace for what was a v expensive/disappointing meal
Definitely one of the best places for steaks in the area, if you love to have great quality meat I highly recommend you to go here. The service is wonderful, nothing is too much trouble for them. A special thank you to Federico and Walter, we’ll surely be back in the near future.
It was not the first time at macellaio. The meager was as always delicious. The surprise arrived with the bill..we were charged for the most expensive nebbiolo although when we ordered the wine we were not asked which of the 3 nebbiolo on the wine list we wanted. Why should they assume we wanted the most expensive one and not the classic nebbiolo???
Very good food, and good service, but go somewhere else if you want a quiet or romantic meal. In spilte of excellent beef I will probably not come again
Outstanding steaks. Loved the aged meat from Italy. Will certainly visit again.
Excellent restaurant for meat lovers. Even if you don't fancy a full steak there are lighter options eg carpaccio or bresaola/mozzarella salads etc. Entrance is via a butcher's shop-style area but dining area at back or downstairs is not as gory. Good service.
Fabulous evening for our wedding anniversary.
A fabulous welcome and seated quickly - recommend you book in advance as it’s incredibly busy!
Steaks were out of this world and we can’t wait to return!
This place was fantastic. Great food, service and ambiance . Definitely eat here when your in London
È sempre un piacere andate dal Macellaio: servizio impeccable, personale attento e discreto, per non parlare delle pietanze. Tutto ottimo
Great meat and great service, what else?!
