Welcome to MACELLAIO RC FITZROVIA, 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 warm familiar greeting the willingness to provide the best service, like when entering in an old Trattorie of 'Bel Paese'…
Welcome and feel like home!

Amazing service, the staff looked after us but without being insistent like it happens in other places in London. They ve been really nice, polite and friendly.

I’ve been to Il macellaio before but in exmouth market, absolutely brilliant also there.

This is the last location that has been open in london and it does satisfy the high expectations I had and my foreign friends loved it.

I was looking forward to having dinner here, after my first dinner at Maxellâ in my native hometown, Genoa, years ago.
Unfortunately our dinner has been fairly disappointing.
It all started perfectly, as my wife’s burrata and my tartare (battuta all’Albese) were awesome. However, our mains were flawed. My wife’s pasta with pesto was incredibly salty, while my rump steak, a tiny portion, should have come with gorgonzola and walnuts but it came just with some cubes of sea salt. When I pointed out the missing cheese and walnuts, my dish was taken and given back with a lump of cold gorgonzola and some walnuts. Not exactly the sort of meat with melting cheese that I was, maybe wrongly, expecting.
The desserts were good, as well as the wine and the dessert wines, but all wines are truly expensive and the total bill, which includes a service charge too, is close to a one Michelin star Italian restaurant that we know in our new hometown, Maidenhead, and which is way better than this one.
Definitely completely different from the original Maxellâ that I knew in Genoa, somehow pretentious unlike the very basic style of the Genoa restaurant, and all background music was just reggaeton which has no relationship whatsoever with the original context of all food served there.

Very good food and very prompt and friendly service. The steaks were delicious and were cooked to perfection. Comparable to what you would find in other top end steak restaurants in London (Goodmans etc). Limited choice of sides though which was a bit disappointing. Having said that, the hispi cabbage was pretty good. A pint of beer at £7 was a bit steep I thought.

Steak tartare is too dry and bland, steak is very good but feels more oven cooked than properly charred (fat isn’t rendered at all), sides are far too small - need to be 3x the size. Staff are lovey but only one speaks English well enough to explain the menu.

Great food (had meat only as starter and main, but everything else looked great from pastas to pizza). Negative note is the wine, overpriced also for Central London standards

Excellent service, food wonderful. A lot less formal than the other Macellaio branches. Sitting outside was glorious on a sunny day. Would definitely come again.

Fantastic food and service, only two notes to make: there was quite a wait between starters and mains (and not all mains were served together), and the first three wines I asked were actually not available. However, once again, everything else was great, they even arranged a brownie to be served as a cake for my friend’s birthday.

Interesting concept and very nice meat! Ambience slightly too noisy for us and we found the music too loud.
