    Always an attentive lover of the theatrical season, Macellaio had paid great attention to the proposal for fans of Theatre in London, who can find in the restaurant an opportunity to break their hunger before the show or during the interval, or end the evening in style at the end of the event. Macellaio takes up the creations in a particular way it is not unusual for guests to watch as their steaks are cooked in front of their eyes with that touch of theatricality embedded in the name and history of this lovely place. If you have come for theatre though, there is plenty of drama on offer at Macellaio, where the smartly served pre-theatre menu will set you up perfectly for your performance.

Took my partner there on a date , due to the reviews regarding steaks.
Was full of after work get together involved bottles of wine and poor language.
Asked to be moved to the empty seating area upstairs and was told that’s reserved for group bookings… it was empty!!
Not the best way to spend over £200!
I should know

A pleasant surprise for lunch despite being on the busy Shaftesbury Ave inside the restaurant is charming. Service too and knowledgeable - their own beef makes this a special menu for steak lovers.

I have been eating at Maccellaio for years. I decided to try the new West End location before a musical. We had the Pre-Theatre menu. I didn't think their steaks could get better, but they did. The steaks are cooked over coal. The service was gracious and attentive. The new location is beautiful and has an open kitchen so you can see the spectacle of your food being prepared. I will be definitely be going back.

Ok so this is a proper Italian restaurant. It’s not cheap but neither is a Dolce snd Gabbana coat-you’re paying for the quality and the attention to detail. We had the three course theatre meal and the food was excellent quality, taste and great portions size and for £35 you will not find better. The wine menu is quite expensive so they could do with a few more bottles around the £40 mark. The service was excellent and not too fussy and they had a great live singer. For a moment I felt like I was in an Italian restaurant in New York. It’s a great restaurant and I’ll be going back. The theatre menu and wine came to about £125 for two so reasonable for this great place.
