Italian
Welcome to MACELLAIO RC SOUTH KENSINGTON, 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 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!

Really poor service sadly it was busy and we sat on walk through point but almost had tackle the staff to order anything. Asked for a beer four times at one point. Shame because it’s walking distance for us. Won’t be back.

Very disappointed to arrive and be told that we only had the table for 90 minutes which was just enough time for starters and mains. Food good, service otherwise attentive, always feels a little expensive. Won't be rushing back for another rushed experience.

Really nice meal. We paid £243 for two people with awesome starters and great steak . Nice Barbera wine.
Our Italian waiter was nice. But when we wanted to order dessert the hostess or manager had the attitude that we should just get on with it as she wanted to seat others at our table.she said we had recess mail stating we had 90 min at our table. But the mail actually said 2 hours.
When we made a fuss they gave us one desert and 2 drinks. This was a compensation but it was obvious that the hostess was not having a good day and was not giving a good impression of the place.
Not sure I want to return.

Great Location, amazing food and friendly service.
We enjoyed the crostini con lardo, tartare, Fiorentina steak and some dessert.
The quality of the food is really high!
The manager of the restaurant offers us some delicious small bite during our Spritz time.

Strongly recommend!!

約2年ぶりでしたが、Steak tatareもBone marrow も以前の方が満足感があったように思います。
スタッフのみなさん親切ですが、少し忙しすぎるのかなと感じました。
良いお店なのは間違いないと思いますが、自分は敢えてまた行くことはないと思います。

Good but temper your expectations. Food wasn’t bad but it wasn’t great. Service is polite, friendly, but you are constantly being upsold and practically forced to order more than you want. It’s comparable to the sales pitch at a used car dealership. I would be open to dining there again, however I wouldn’t go out of my way to do so.

Unfortunately this has changed management and chef. The bolognese was not rich in flavour (no flavour) and the steak was not cooked the same as previously, was rare not medium when asked for medium. (but tasted nice). Been 15-20 times before, but won't be back again.

Great meats. But be warned, there isn't much one can order besides meats. So unless you're going to tuck into a big steak, don't try this place. Ambience is lacking for occasions dinner but it's not an occasion dinners kind of place. It's a local casual dining. Good wine list. Friendly staff.
