The 1 kilo Costato (we shared) was just superb! Although I usually eat my steak medium the waiter convinced us to order it medium-rare ... and of course he was right! Why not the maximum ‘excellent’ score: we felt a bit rushed by the 2-2.5...More

I have visited Macellaio numerous times the last years. Lovely warm atmosphere, tasty meat at reasonable prices. You can bring your own wine for a corkage fee. I will definitely go back next time in London

Very very slow service (we had to ask 3/4 times for the same thing before they would bring it to the table) and portions are definitely too small for the price (we left the restaurant still hungry and having spent about 50£ each). The waiter...More

This is probably one of the best meat/steak restaurants in London! So an important tip is: book at least 4-5 days in advance!!!! Small, cosy, authentic and above all unbearably delicious place, Macellaio is just a place which you will revisit multiple times. You can...More

It's all about expectations and, clearly, my expectations of this place were higher than the result of our visit. I was thinking more "steakhouse" and less "retail shop that serves steak." There were three of us and we had a reservation for 7 pm on...More

With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque

superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
