Welcome to our MACELLAIO RC, kingdom of the Italian Fassona beef and the first butchery-restaurant opened in London. Macellaio RC of Northcote Road is the fourth chapter of our company. 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 1hr 15min wait between courses was a big problem as this was meant to be a quick bite. Plans had to be cancelled etc.
There was a mix up with our order too, maybe part of the reason for the delay, but a burger and lamb stake are a quick couple of dishes.
The food was ‘ok’, maybe we should have had the steak as recommended by a friend.

Love the Fiorentina and the lard bruscetta.

Service was attentive.

The basil panna cotta its always a mist when you go to Macellaio.

Squeezed onto a tiny table. Waited 30 mins to order after being ignored by two waitresses. Main course came out 95 mins after we arrived. Medium rare steak was served blue. Had to ask 3 different servers for the bill before it came. £70 a head for a very average meal. Very hot and uncomfortable.

Go for Imperiale to share with somebody and then a main. House Red wine is a delicious merlot that is a perfect combo!

Incredibly fresh and delicious food at amazing value. Service was fantastic and catered well to my coeliac needs. Only flaw I can point out was the music didn’t suit the venue one bit. Pop hits including Britney Spears and ghost busters really didn’t compliment the restaurant ambience.

The food was grand. The steak is Hawksmoor standard. Melt in the mouth perfection. Friendly staff. Went on a Monday night so kinda empty so would love to come back and see the tables filled. I'd recomend.

This is rapidly becoming our favourite spot for a great steak, the “Battuta” steak tartar with Gorgonzola and balsamic is divine as is the “Midollo” roast marrow bone with tartar as starters ( munch the Lardo Bruschetta whilst checking the menu) a 700gr costata is perfect for two and finish off with the “latte dolce fritto”, all washed down with a bottle of great Italian red from the list and you’ll be back. Front of house is run wonderfully by the lovely Christina who is extremely professional for her young age.
Definitely a place to visit.

This is the 3rd time I have eaten at Macellaio and each time it has been absolutely superb. I also went on the butchery course which I can recommend to anyone who wants to know more about beef.

Table not ready so we were passed to the bar, that wasn’t staffed.

Strange newspaper / menu set up.

Repeated attempts to make everyone club together for big steak, which nobody wanted.

Bizarre ritual of stabbing steak knives into wooden table, is that hygienic? Food served on board with tile, again is this hygienic?

Drink order took a while, had to remind about single white wine order, then terrible upsell attempt on 2nd bottle of red.

Food itself unremarkable for “specialty” steak house. As regulars of the Gaucho / Hawksmoor etc in town, we’ll stick to those inst ad of staying local.

They serve great steak. However the sides are extremely small and wine is pricey compared with other restaurants on the road. The whole experience was let down by portion size. Would I go again, no I would go to Foxlow in a heartbeat.
